Urumi Review - Power Of A Period

IndiaGlitz  [Saturday, May 26, 2012]

Making a historical film needs enough preparations and solid research. For Santosh Sivan, an acclaimed cinematographer-cum-director, it seems to have come quite easily. His 'Urumi' chronicles Portuguese sailor Vasco Da Gama's visit to India and the revenge of a youth who was hell-bent against the sailor for allegedly killing his father.

Though the movie is set in 14th century, the message it throws fits the contemporary audience. The love for motherland, respect towards relationship, aforestation and promote greenery et al is highlighted.

Santosh Sivan has utilized the opportunity to pack some powerful messages in the film. Though the movie was originally made in Malayalam and is all about warriors in Kerala, the Tamil version doesn't sound much alien for some fiery dialogues by writer Sasikumar. Also the star cast is familiar to Tamil audience.

Prithviraj plays the lead role while Prabhudeva, Genelia, Nithya Menon, Arya, Tabu and Vidya Balan among others chip in with their best.

What begins in a confounding manner slowly settles down to a revenge drama. Kelu Rayanar (Prithviraj) is confident of settling scores with Vasco Da Gama for killing his father Sedurayyan (Arya). He is supported in his endeavors by his close buddy Vavvali (Prabhudeva).

They come across Aracckal Ayesha (Genelia), a valorous woman who fights the foreigners. The trio set out for a war with the Portuguese.

Prithviraj is impressive as Kelu Rayannar. He gives one of his best performances till date. It's no regular chirpy innocent Genelia here. She plays a bold woman who indulges in war, breaks the back of her enemies in war front.

Nithya Menon as Chirakkal Bala who falls for Prabhudeva's innocence plays her part well. Arya's cameo sets the momentum in the movie. Vidya Balan and Tabu appear and disappear in split seconds.

But cheers to Prabhudeva. The actor provides loads of humor and is a treat to watch on screen. Music by Deepak Dev compliments the theme. 'Urumi' is entertaining and educative too. Santosh Sivan deserves acclaim for his sincere attempt.
