Star Performances

Bobby Simha is a known face now in Kollywood, thanks to his exemplary performance in Jigarthanda. He is seen beating hooligans and shouting at the full decibel of his voice. Bobby has understood what works in the commercial level and has given his best. As for Kalaiarasan he has the shades of Kollywood baddies but nevertheless does a good job. He would surely get the ire of the audience;his body language suits that of a villain.

Reshmi Menon has proved her acting prowess in earlier films but in Urumeen she doesn’t have scope to perform. She doesn’t even have to show her glamour quotient and is pitiably wasted. All the same, she looks pretty. Appu Kutty, Charlie, Kaali Venkat and Sivabalan have done their roles well.


Urumeen is the debut venture of director Sakthivel Perumalsamy. The movie mainly focuses on revenge which is in sync with the tagline: Revenge is always ultimate. The movie also has the elements of thriller and fantasy. For the 17th century backdrop the director has followed the Kochadaiyan style. While in one generation Kings and Queens are shown in another corporate are shown.


A different story indeed; and the director should be applauded for taking it in his debut endeavor.
