Chiyaan Vikram has a career of extremes for a big popular hero in recent times. He had to struggle hard for more than 9 years, to get his first success as the lead actor. Then, he had to great run of hits till Aparichitudu, where each movie increased his mass appeal and got wards for his acting talents as well.
But then he took break for a huge action entertainer and he is facing trouble since, to find the elusive big success at the box office. His big ticket film, Shankar's I, for which he once again took three years break also did not work.
The actor then had 10 Erindukulla and IruMugan releases. In Tamil, due to his star status, Irumugan had decent collections but it did not become a telling success. He started two films immediately, Sketch and Dhuva Natchitram.
One is in the direction of Vijay Chander and other in the direction of Gautham Vasudev Menon. Sketch, completed fast and it released for Pongal, this year. Tamanna Bhatia played the lead role.
Sketch released with Prabhu Deva's Gulebakavali and Suriya's Thaana Serndha Kottam. Other two films got positive response but Sketch did not get good word of mouth. Still it is managing some collections but it might be the telling comeback of Vikram who recently lost his father!
