‘Vikram: Hitlist’ filmmaker Lokesh shares his perspective on handling risk in cinema

What factor decides whether a film is going to be a hit or a flop? How does one judge the USP (unique selling point) of a script and decide whether it’s worth taking a gamble on? How do the successful directors or actors measure the risk co-efficient of a script? Is there a process for it? 

The above questions become even more relevant when one considers that the success ratio of the film industry is in single digits. Lokesh Kanagaraj, director of Vikram: Hitlist, conveyed his take on the topic.

“I don’t think there’s a method to measure risk. What I am fundamentally concerned about is whether the script excites me or not and whether I am able to pass on the same excitement to my team. I also share the script with my friends who are fellow directors and elicit their feedback. Did they find it equally enticing? That’s when I take a call on the script,” said Lokesh.

Following the success of ‘Vikram: Hitlist’, Lokesh has a lineup of star-studded films that are guaranteed to keep him busy for the next decade. He is currently filming ‘Thalapathy 67’ with Tamil star Thalapathy Vijay in the lead. Check out the ‘Also Read’ section below to learn more about Lokesh's upcoming movies.
