Urumeen Story

Urumeen is an Tamil action-thriller movie direction by Sakthivel Perumalsamy. The movie has Bobby Simha, Madras fame Kalaiarasan, besides Reshmi Menon, Appukutty, Kaali Venkat and Manobala in pivotal roles. The movie is based on a real-life incident that took place in 1990.

Urumeen Plot: 

Set across three different time periods, Urumeen houses a revenge story that spans across generations. 

While the connection between two characters, played by Bobby Simha and Kalaiyarasan, forms the basic plot, rest of the film revolves around why they badly want to see each other dead.


After having worked as a non linear editor and assistant director in few films,Sakthivel Perumalsamy wanted to direct a feature film, based on a real-life incident that took place in 1700 to 2015. In 2014, he first approached and discussed the story with Bobby Simha, whose short films he had seen. They waited to find good producers for the project, which therefore did not commence until March 2014. Simhaa took up the lead role in the film, his first after a number of supporting roles. 

His character, Selva, was a middle-class man who comes to Chennai from a small town to search for a job but gets into a problem, and he said that his character "exhibits two behaviours". While Kalaiyarasan landed the role of the villain. Kalaiyarasan later revealed that the director had initially asked him to play the hero but that he could not agree as he had other films lined up, while he called his character, John Christopher, "[not] entirely evil".

Over the next months, the film saw several changes in its principal cast and crew. Initially reported to be produced by Dr. L. Sivabalan under his Zero Rules Entertainment banner, the project was later known to be funded by G. Dillibabu's Axess Film Factory.

The film was shot across several South Indian states in locations including Chennai, Thekkady, Idukki, Ernakulam, Puducherry.
