Director Santhosh Sivan's much-awaited movie Urumi has hit the screens across the state. Although there are some dragging moments in the movie, its rich production values hold the attention of audience till the climax. It is an excellent effort by Sivan and Prithviraj. Hats of to them.
Urumi is a historical epic film written by Shankar Ramakrishnan and Prithvi and Genelia's performances are the main attraction of the film. Deepak Dev's music, Anal Arasu's action, Sivan's camera work, Shankar's dialogues, costume designing, make up, choreography are other highlights of the film. But a few forcibly inserted songs and slow paced narration are the two minus points of the film.
The film is set in the backdrop of the fierce warrior clans of Northern Kerala in the 16th century and focuses on the cult of Chirakkal Kelu Nayanar. It is all about boy, who wants to avenge the death of his father, who has been killed by Vasco da Gama. Santhosh Sivan's dragging narration in both first and second half tests the patience of the viewers. The climax scenes seem to have taken from another epic film Pazhassi Raja.
