What if virtue is not all that good and evil, not as bad? The trailer of Vikram Vedha, starring actors Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan, tries to answer moral questions, in a quintessential masala Hindi film package.
Vikram Vedha trailer features the epic face-off between Saif’s Vikram, a righteous cop, and Hrithik’s Vedha, a dreaded gangster. Their mighty clash is not just about guns, brawn and gore set to thumping background music but also about life: What if both good and bad are ultimately wrong?

The 2.30 minutes trailer starts off with actor Vijay Raaz’s voiceover as the viewers are introduced to the worlds of Vikram and Vedha, two distinct personalities who seem to be sharing much more in common than they will agree.
The trailer charts the characters’ lives in the Uttar Pradesh-set film, as they navigate moral dilemma, duty and the understanding of being on the right side of law and order. Vikram Vedha trailer also features actor Radhika Apte, who appears to be the moral compass of the narrative.
