Uttama Villain - Immortal

The two hours, thirty two minutes runtime is barely noticeable as life unfolds on screen and some films you applaud, some you whistle and hoot, but �Uttama Villain�s appreciation is shown by the tears in the audience eyes as they leave the theatre. The pace does lag at times and there are other fa...

Screaming of mastery in every department, Uttama Villain is True cinema

Dialogues written by Kamal himself are sharp, witty, intelligent, and mischievous. His play of words in the scene where Nasser falls sick tells us his prowess with the language. A film that is high on emotional content is rare to find these days for the simple reason that it has not many takers. Bu...

A courageous film that breaks away from being predictable, is gripping and emotional with few funny moments thrown in.

The sheer thrill of watching a film and not knowing what will happen next is one of the great pleasures offered by director Ramesh Aravind. Uttama Villain is a good example of an entertaining commercial film that didn't need to be lazy or senseless.

The story of a star and his legacy

The narrative technique is inventive. The simultaneous unfolding of these two stories; with the story of Uthaman, set many centuries ago, unfolding almost as a fantasy of Manoranjan, offers a very interesting perspective of 'reality' of fiction in cinema, and how cinema is merely an illusion of reality.

    Uttama villain with its powerful Screenwriting with good Direction had put a very firm base for a  groovy cast to construct an emotional monument. WOW!!! With defects here and there a little though couldn't do damage to this monument of Kamal Hassan. 
    4 stars - The top-notch Performance of Kamal, Background Score, Writing and partly the Direction.

    An emotional drama, that take its own time to get into you! Tad slow screenplay may bore some people, but the Uthaman Kamal's intention to give a good cinema & the writing pulled off ! Ghibran scores well. Looks like this time Kamal has predicted something much earlier and that's the reason why UV becomes a fitting tribute for KB. A chapter emotionally portrays the family bond and another registers a statement indirectly that being immortal is a sad state & every story should have an ending. Kudos Master Kamal

    Uthama Villain Average film.Period film part was not good.Comedy not good at all.Jamal shines as both Uthaman and Manoranjan.Parvati did well.Andrea and Pooja were average.MS Bhaskar as Chokalingam was excellent.Songs were not good except Single Kisske. The film is leisurely paced great concept amateurish screenplay.Second half was decent but not good enough to save the film.
