Director Anand Shankar's Telugu movie "Inkokkadu," featuring Vikram, Nayantara and Nithya Menen in the lead roles, has received mixed reviews from the audience in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
"Inkokkadu," a science fiction thriller, is the dubbed version of producer Shibu Thameens' Tamil movie, "Iru Mugan." Producer Neelam Krishna Reddy acquired the theatrical rights of the Telugu version and released the movie under his banner NKR Films on the day the original hit the screens.
Written by Anand Shankar, "Inkokkadu" revolves around the story of ex-cop Akilan Anand and Love (dual roles played by Vikram). Akilan is an undercover RAW agent, who is working on an assignment at an Indian embassy, which was bombed by some miscreants. His wife (Nayantara) is killed by Love. How Akhilan locks horns with Love forms the rest of the story.
The viewers say "Inkokkadu" has a predictable story and beaten-to-death screenplay. The first half of the movie has slow-paced narration, which is not engaging. The story gains momentum before the interval, but the dragging narration is continued in the second half. The climax is good.
Vikram has delivered brilliant performances in both the roles and he is the showman in the film. Nayantara and Nithya Menen have done justice to their roles. The performances of supporting artistes Nassar, Thambi Ramaiah, Bala, Karunakaran and Riythvika are also assets of the movie, say the viewers.
"Inkokkadu" has superb production values, and Harris Jayaraj's background score, RD Rajasekhar's cinematography and the amazing choreography of action sequences are the attractions on the technical front, add the viewers.
We bring you some viewers' verdict shared on Twitter. Here is the live update of "Inkokkadu" movie review by the audience:

Done with the first half of #Inkokkadu. Chiyaan #Vikram's performance stands out. Harris Jayaraj's BGM gives goosebumps. Second half drags a bit yet on the whole #Inkokadu makes for good watch. Watch it for #Vikram's stellar performance
Hari Kiran P @Iharik
Watched #Inkokkadu Good movie. #ChiyaanVikram is at his best in both roles.BGM & songs were good. Director narrated the story in a Boring way.DOP is fabulous. #NithyaMenen character is useless.Instead of her any upcoming artist can play it.Overall a average flick
ॐ Deepak @DeepakKodela
Done with #Inkokkadu. Slow paced thriller. Logics aside, okay movie.
Avg first half with terrific BGM #Inkokkadu Along with Vikram, it is Harris Jayaraj who stands out with his outstanding BGM throughout the film #Inkokkadu More than characters in the film, The film itself needs SPEED. Sluggish and boring narration in 2nd half #Inkokkadu

#Inkokkadu #IruMugan is an illogical movie. Bad script selection by Vikram. Slim prospects at the box office.

#IruMugan #Inkokkadu Racy, slick entertainer. Vikram steals the show. Lots to 'love'. But some portions in the latter half were a letdown.

Barring Vikram's amazing efforts & few fabulous technical aspects, #IruMugan or #Inkokkadu is a bloody below par. Vikram admirers praise it.
