Vikraman made his debut with
the movie Pudhu Vasantham, a story of four unemployed
friends who are musical experts.
This movie released in 1989 was successful. Its hero Murali
went on to become a famous romantic actor who donned the
mike-wielding singer role in subsequent movies.
The trio of Vikraman-S.A.Rajkumar-R.B.Choudari came
commercially successful. But a flop in Pudhiya Mannargal
forced him to go back.
He worked as an assistant to actor cum director R. Parthiban
in Pudhea Paadhai, which was the latter's debut film as a
director and an actor. Director K. S. Ravikumar assisted him
in making films in his early days.
