Vikram (2022) - Disney+ Hotstar

Lokesh Kanagaraj has mapped the progression of an agent represented in the Kamal Haasan starrer Vikram (1986) into a narrative set in a modern timeline, integrating the plot development from his own film, Kaithi (released in 2019). The film sets up a Liam Neeson-esque franchise.

Leo (2023) - Netflix
