Universal star Kamal Haasan made a mark of all the worldly emotions in slick 2 and half hours in Uttama Villain. A proud superstar with charisma turns innocent Uttaman for film and his dialogue delivery for Iranian play needs a special mention.
K Balachander and K Viswanath leaves an everlasting impression for their fans and film buffs.
Urvashi, Nasser, Pooja Kumar, MS Bhaskar, Parvathy Menon did their parts well oushining Kamal.
Kamal Haasan also proves he is a brilliant writer besides being perctionist in acting. Story and screenplay are crisp. Though pace fdrops in places, Uttama Villain is acceptable for its narration.
Ramesh Aravind has to be appreciated for bringing out Kamal’s dream with such lavish and visually appealing frames.
Ghibran’s music and Shamdat’s cinematography are major plus to Uttama Villain. Vijay Shankar’s editing is good.
Uttama Villain will remain Pride for Thirupathi Brothers and Raaj Kamal International Films.
Uttama Villain is like a Coaching for upcoming actors. Kamal Haasan has acted perfectly in every scene as Manoranjan, until he meets his daughter played by Parvathy Menon, where his real emotions were shown.
More than a movie, you feel most of the present era in UV is running behind you being real characters with real emotions. The counterpart film is also beautifully shot, though seems instructive at times.
Once again Kamal Haasan proves his mettle, after Dasavatharam. Go watch Uttama Villain for a never seen before experience.
Final Verdict: Art of interesting entertainer…
