Vikram Vedha Movie Review

It is a power-packed movie with solid punches of Hindi dialogue

Vikram Vedha is a remake of a 2017 Tamil movie of the same name but from the same directors. Writer and director couple Pushkar-Gayathri is the maker of the original Tamil and remake Hindi movie. And they have left the audiences guessing which one is a better movie.


SSP Vikram (Saif Ali Khan) is pressed into an operation of nabbing a sly and slippery gangster Vikram (Hrithik Roshan) who lords over the Lucknow underworld and keeps the police officers on their toes. It is the same Tamil story told in Hindi but with new characters. And it won’t be an exaggeration to say that the director couple has relied much on the star cast to make the film popular in the Hindi belt.


• A drastic backdrop change and Hindi dialogues that are both conversational and philosophical bring minor tweaks to the story
• The battle between two legendary actors is crammed with intrigue and energy
• Lucknow with its historic structures gives the movie a distinctive visual texture
• The cinematographer has made significant adjustments to suit the new location and production design
• Saif Ali Khan makes a far better Vikram than R. Madhavan in the Tamil movie


• The story matches line-by-line with the Tamil movie
• Saif and Hrithik together outperform the supporting characters
• Vijay Sethupathi looks far better than Hrithik Roshan

10 Points Of India’s Inclusion In The Global Bond Index

The Indian government has ruled out the long-standing demand for the inclusion of nation’s bonds to be included in global indexes by denying any changes to tax policies.

10 Highlights Of The Big Story

Global Bond Index
  1. The government has no plans to waive capital gains taxes and it is concerned about foreign flows increasing the volatility of local markets.
  2. Predictions of $30 billion of foreign inflows through bonds were dashed with the government’s decision to levy capital gains. But the index compliers have the option of including securities without changes.
  3. Pankaj Pathak, a fixed-income fund manager at Quantum Asset Management Co., said that the benefits might outweigh the concerns because Indian bonds would diversify the index, boost the yield, and expand the market opportunities.
  4. India holds the third largest bond market in the emerging world but it is yet to be included in the global indexes.
  5. Since the local banks and foreign investors boosted their holdings in June, the country’s benchmark 10-year bond yield witnessed a drop of 30 basis points.
  6. The yield witnessed a further decline of 7 basis points to 7.29% on Tuesday.
  7. According to experts, inclusion could lead to billions of dollars of inflows as money managers often track global indexes before making allocation decisions.
  8. The experts further said that the government wanted to be self-reliant in its funding, and was prepared to manage any selloff in its debt market if inclusion failed to happen.
  9. According to a JPMorgan investor survey, investors wanted India to replace Russia which was excluded from the indexes after it invaded Ukraine.
  10. JPMorgan is likely to index India’s bonds early next year as the Indian government still needs time to address operational issues.
