Directed by Ramesh Arvind, the films is slated to release on April 2
2015 is expected to be an year of Kamal Haasan. With three back to back Tamil films lined up for release, the actor recently launched the music of his film Uttama Villain, which is touted to release on April 2. The film starring Kamal Haasan, Urvashi, Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jermiah, Jayaram, MS Bhaskar, also marks the last on screen appearance of late veteran filmmaker, K Balachander. Along with the 17 track audio album, the makers of Uttama Villain also released the second trailer of the much anticipated film. So, unlike the first trailer, does this one spill some beans about the plot? Lets see.
After watching the trailer, I was left with the overwhelming feeling of respect for Kamal Haasan, known for his cerebral cinema, as he has yet again brought us a complex web of emotions with multiple layers of story telling. While it is next to impossible to guess the entire plot, here is what I understood about the story from the trailer:
Kamal Haasan seems to be playing a dual avatar of an ageing superstar in present times and a tribal villager from a bygone era. Kamal plays a superstar named Manorajan, who is adored by his fans and is known to churn out blockbusters. Urvashi plays his naive wife, while their son suspects that Manorajan is having an affair with someone. Meanwhile, it looks like Manorajan loses all his popularity and stardom overnight, and is left with no films in hand. So he goes to his mentor who launched him, K Balachander, requesting him to cast in a movie, where he would be playing a Theyyam artist. The story seems to be kept under wraps and one cannot guess what role MS Bhaskar and Jayaram have to play.
After the trailer piqued my interest, I can't wait for the D-day to arrive when Uttama Villain hits the big screen.
