Life history of Tamil actor Vikram:
Tamil actor cum singer is also gets a place in the Tamil actors who have the Cinema back grounded parents. Because, the father of Cheeyan Vikram is also a Cinema side actor who came to Chennai, Kodambakkam with dreams of entering Kollywood. But Vinod Raj could not get a solid place in Tamil cinema viewers by managing to do some TV serial roles added with some side characters in the cinemas. On the other hand, mother of Syan Vikram was a Sub collector. We can say that Vinod Raj the father of Vikram would have been the inspiration for him to come into the field of Tamil cinema.

Interesting information about Vikram is, he is none but the causin of one of the Tamil actors Prasanth who is the son of Tamil director Thyagarajan. Prasanth has done many successful movies started from his debut, Vaigasi porandhaachu, till his somehow recent movies, Jeans ( Directed by Tamil director Shankar), Ponniyin Selvan etc., and Thyagarajan was a very famous Tamil director during 80’s.

The sister of Tamil actor Vikram is Anita who is elder than him is a teacher and his brother has been about to get his debut at the Tamil movie Saroja which was directed by Venkat Prabu at the year of 2008. But he did not appear in that movie.

The Schooling of Tamil actor Vikram was in the Yercaud school namely Montfort School. As all we know, Yercaud is one of the Hill stations of Tamilnadu. Vikram has been one of the interested students among that school with the arts like, dancing , acting and other staged performances.

I don’t know how many of you went through the Talks about Tamil actor Vikram during the release of his super hit movies, Dhool and Dhil both were directed by one of the Successful commercial directors of Tamil cinema, Dharani who has directed movies like Osthi too. The talk was that, Vikram had gone through the severe leg injury and was admitted in the hospital for months just similar to the situation of his role in Dhill and slight with his role in Dhool. It is true that he met with a major accident when he was in college studies and he was admitted in hospital for some months. Vikram has been in the hospital for almost three years is shocking. Chiyan Vikram’s leg has gone under 23 numbers of surgeries during that accident to save his leg back without removing (amputation).

 Filmy career of Tamil actor Vikram:

The initial stage of Cinema career of Tamil actor Chiyaan Vikram has been a tragedy that he has been doing modeling works during his master's degree educations from Loyala of Chennai. The name of the products that Vikram was modeling are as follows,
·         Chola Tea
·         TVS excel
·         Alwyn Watches
 The Debut movie of Tamil actor Vikram in Tamil Cinema is, En kadhal kanmani which was directed by Sridhat at the year of 1990. The second movie of vikram in Kollywood is, thandhu vitten ennai. The third Tamil movie of Vikram is Meera which was directed by P. C. Sriram who is one of the famous cinematographers of Tamil cinema. The famous Tamil song, “Oh butterfly…. Butterfly.. butterfly.. yen virithai? Sirahai..? Arugil nee………. Irundhaal… “ takes place in this movie only, casted by our Chhiyan with Tamil actress Aishwarya. I remember, the villan role of this movie had been done by Kollywood actor Sarath Kumar. Eventhough Meera was expected a lot by the Tamil audience for P.C Shriram, it did not go well as expected commercially. But the acting performance of Vikram in Meera and some other that time movies of him assisted his cinema career a bit that he started acting in the other language movies, in Malayalam and Telugu movies at the year of 1993.

Another interesting news I have about the filmy career of Tamil actor Vikram during 1993 is, his project with Mani Rathnam for the movie, Bombay which got a great box office , ever green hit Tamil movies list by the famous director from Tamil, Mani Rathnam. The reason for his disagreement from this movie, Bombay is his beard that has been asked to get removed by Mani Rathnam to Vikram but he had to refuse the request from the Director due to his parallel project that needed him to be with beard. Vikram might have got shined in the Tamil cinema since 1993 itself if he had got committed with the number of Indian national awarding, Bombay film. Isn’t it hard to hear??

However, Vikram managed to act in some Malayalam movies with the leading films of Malayalam film industry like, Mammooty, Suresh Gopi ( who has acted as the brother of Tamil actor Ajith Kumar in the movie Dheena), and Jayaram (who has acted in Tamil movie Thenali as the doctor). On the other hand, Vikram had been acting in some low budget Telugu movies in between. Then Vikram got another better movie in Tamil cinema industry namely, Pudhiya Mannargal in which the songs are ever green composed by Oscar winning Tamil music director A.R.Rahman. Vikram has acted with Tamil actor Ananth Babu in that movie with the actresses, Ramya Krishna and Madhubala. Vikram role in that movie was a forced, energetic youngster who fights for rights accompanied with other 4 youngsters. Eventhough the story of that Tamil movie was not bad at all, it got commercial flop those days.

The years between 1993 and 1999 was a tragedy for the filmy career of our Chiyaan that he had to be acting some other language, small budget movies in the Malayalam and Telugu movies for a couple of years and later on, he got another Tamil movie opportunity at the movie, produced by Amitabh Bachan, namely Ullaasam. In this movie Chiyaan had acted with the Ultimate Star Thala Ajith doing the role of brother of Ajith in which Tamil villain actor Rahuwaran had done the role of the father of both Vikram and Ajith. This movie also did not go well with collections is the point among the filmy career of our hero here. After that, again vikram went to other language films and came back to Tamil for doing a small role in Tamil actor cum Director, Parthiban’s movie Housefull, based on the story around a cinema theater.
Tamil actor Vikram in Sethu

Now the interesting part of the Cinema career of Tamil actor Vikram comes, that, he acted in the Tamil movie Sethu which was directed by the natural story based film director, Bala. The movie Sethu was released during a Pongal season. It was not at all expected by any kind of Tamil cinema audience at that time that, Sethu will get this much of success in the theaters. The story of this movie, Sethu started with the story of a college chairman. But the story turns to the deep mind wounding story oriented with the Mental hospitals situated in Yeruvaadi, Southern Part of Tamilnadu. Our dedicated hero, Vikram had reduced his weight drastically for this movie. He spent his complete two years with the team of Sethu by believing the story of Sethu. Vikram was nominated for Indian national award for his performance in Sethu. The scene in this movie that the heroin comes to see him to the mental hospital and leaves the snacks that she prepared and brought nearby him when he sleeps and then goes away from him. Within seconds, Vikram wakes up and shouts to her but with the sounds of other patients there, she fails to hear his voice. This scene was selected as the best scene of the year by that time famous television channel, Sun network that I still remember.
With these hard-core struggles, Vikram sat and thought heavily for his further movies to get his filmy career more powerful and successful. Then he crossed, the project from Tamil actress Radhika Sharath Kumar namely Siraguhal. The next successful signed up of Vikram was, Vinnukkum Mannukkum in which he had paired with Devyani.
The movie Vinnukkum mannukkum didn’t go well in the theaters. Then he got signed for the movie, Dhill which was directed by the Tamil director Dharani. The movie, Dhill was a great commercial success film. In that movie, Vikram had done the role of an energetic youngster who is aiming to become the Police officer with number of turning points in the stream of very fast screenplay by Dharani. Tamil actress Laila had done the pair role for Vikram. The songs of Dhill movie which were composed by Tamil music director, Vidyasaahar with the ever green super hit Tamil song, “un samayal araiyil, naan uppa sakkaraiya…”.

The next successful movie of Chiyaan Vikram was Kaasi which was directed by Vinayan. Vikram was awarded the Filmfare award for the best actor for this Tamil movie Kaasi.

The next movie of Vikram was, Gemini which was directed by Charan who has been one of the commercial hits providing directors of Tamil cinema. As this movie was produced by AVM productions and they have been doing number of Television serials in Sun TV, they had committed plenty of advertisements in Sun TV when this movie was released. The song from the movie, Gemini, “O podu” was a great hit among the Tamil cinema audiences. And that hit song made the movie gets introduced to the Tamil audience very fast and in large numbers. Both the back ground scope and songs had been done by Bharadwaj.

The next project of Vikram was, Samurai in which also, the songs were Superhit. The story of this Tamil movie was, based on anti-corruption. The director of Samurai is, Balaji Shakthivel. After these powerful action hero roles of Vikram in Dhill, Gemini and Samurai, he committed for the full fledged comedy movie, King which was directed by Prabhu Salomon. Vikram had done comic sensed role in the movie King, paired with Tamil actress Sneha.

The second project of the team of the movie Dhill, with Vikram, was Dhool. In this movie, Tamil actress Jothika had done pair with Vikram and the second heroin was Reema sen. All the songs in this movie also got a great hit, the song “Singam pola” reached from the high-class Spencer plaza to the slums of Tamilnadu. With these rapid hit movies, Vikram met with another commercial failure at the movie, Kaadhal Sadugudu pair with Priyanka Trivedi who had done a glamourous role in this movie.

After this slight lag in the career of Vikram, he committed for his next film, namely Saamy under the banner of K.Balachander (Great Tamil director). This movie was directed by one of the current, commercial hits providing directors, Hari. Tamil actress Trisha had done the pairing for Vikram in saamy. Of course, this movie also has a block buster song namely, “Kalyaanam dhaan kattikittu”..

The next biggest signed project of Vikram was, Pithamagan in which he had acted with Tamil actor Surya. For this movie, Vikram got the Indian national award. Vikram is the one and only actor who have got this award among the current Tamil leading actors.

The next movie of Vikram was, Arul in which he joined with the commercial succeeding director, Hari again after Saamy.  In this movie, Tamil actress Jothika had done the pairing role of Vikram. The story was based on an ordinary man gets into mass rowdyism in his won town

The film, Anniyan which was directed by Tamil director Shankar at the year of 2005 was another great commercial success film by Vikram. In this movie, Vikram got a nice opportunity for his acting performance and he utilized that opportunity very effectively. This movie was the most expensive Tamil movie in those days with about 100 crores of money invested. In this movie Vikram did three different roles namely Remo, Ambi and Anniyan and Vikram showed the variations among those three roles with his nice body language and style. The acting of Vikram in this movie became the biggest plus of this movie. Especially in the climax scene, Vikram acted the scene of changing into two characters at a moment just great.

After that he got the project, Majaa in which he acted with Tamil actress Asin. This was a comic story again for Vikram. The next one was, Bheema. This movie, was directed by Lingusaamy who had directed previously, the hit movies like Run, Sandakozhi which were blockbusters.
