Trailer: Kamal Haasan in never-seen-before avatar in ‘Uttama Villain’


The trailer of the Kamal Haasan starrer ‘Uttama Villain’ has been released. The Tamil superstar is ready to delight the audience with this intriguing drama this February. The 1:34 minute trailer introduces the audience with the main characters in the movie. It begins with Kamal Haasan’s dialogue and what follows proves the versatility of the actor. He has been shown in several avatars, all of which are different and riveting at the same time.

The other actors shown in the trailer are K Vishwanath, Parvathi , Urvashi, Pooja Kumar, Jayaram and Andrea Jeremiah. It was earlier being said that actresses like Kajal Aggarwal, Asin and Deepika Padukone would be featured in the movie. But finally, the lead female roles went to Pooja Kumar, Parvathi and Andrea Jeremiah.

The movie is truly special in several ways. ‘Uttama Villain’ is the last film of the director K. Balachander. He passed away on 23rd December due to age related ailments and heart attack. The director has played a cameo role in the film. He has been a guru to Kamal Haasan in real life. Similarly, he has played a guide to the actor in the movie too. The director was selected for the cameo role in January last year and has appeared in a bearded look. The movie will feature the bond that Haasan and K. Balachander shared.

Another notable aspect of the movie is the role played by Kamal Hasaan. He would be seen as an 8th century theatre artist. The complications of the caste system and caste division upset the artist. Moreover, he has been shown struggling to restore his lost fame-with a last act. But most interesting is the fact that he would be seen in dual role. The second role is that of a 21st century cine star. The story has been written by the actor himself.

Kamal reported that though the movie will have moments of laughter, it would not be a complete comedy. Directed by Ramesh Aravind, the film is a production of N. Lingusamy. The producer is elated to have the talented actor onboard, as he told the media earlier that, “For the first time my production house Thirupathy Brothers will be producing a film with Kamal sir in the lead. He will be directing and playing the hero in this big budget action adventure film.” Another one filled with joy is Yuvan Shankar Raja, the creator of the film soundtrack. It is the first time that Yuvan got a chance to work with Kamal Haasan.
