Check out the top 10 reasons to watch Uttama
Villain and Vai Raja Vai in the slides
The 'Guru-Shishyan' Combo On The Big Screen
This is probably the first and definitely the last time you will
be able to see two masterminds performing on the big screen. K
Balachander will be playing Marghadarsi, Kamal's on-screen mentor.
Interestingly, that's what he was off-screen as well.
Wonderful Star Cast
Apart from Kamal and K Balachander, the movie boasts of some
brilliant actors. K Vishwanath, Nassar, Urvashi, MS Bhaskar, Pooja
Kumar, Parvathi Menon, Jayaram to name a few.
Kamal Haasan's Characterization
Kamal, who is a real life Superstar, will be seen as a star in
his reel life for the first time. Though he has done a similar
character in the movie Kalaignan, Uttama Villain
promises to be a film that deals with the nuances of an artist's
life which is seldom shown in Tamil cinema.
Uttama Villain's Story A Mystery!
Uttama Villain's story remains to be a mystery till
date. Add to that Kamal Haasan's intriguing screenplay and that
makes for a mouth watering platter in the form of a film. It is
also written by Kamal Haasan which would make it that much more
Traditional Art Forms Explored
Uttama Villain also promises to explore the traditional
art forms of South India including 'Theyyam'. If not for these kind
of movies, our own art forms will soon be replaced by foreign art
forms which is a shame indeed.
Aishwarya R Dhanush's Second Directorial Venture
If you had seen the Dhanush starrer 3, you would know
that Aishwarya is a good story teller. Armed with the right weapon
to taste success as a director, Aishwarya's second film, which
falls under the romantic-thriller genre, has created the
expectation that is required.
Yuvan Shankar Raja's Comeback?
With a few recent flops, famed music composer Yuvan is
desperately looking for a hit and Vai Raja
Vai(VRV) might be it. With the songs already becoming
a huge hit, Yuvan's music in the film plays a pivotal role and a
few are already claiming that Yuvan will stage a grand comeback
Varied Star Cast
Like Uttama Villain, Vai Raja Vai also
has an amazing list of actors. Apart from an impressive set of lead
actors, VRV will have director Vasanth making his acting
debut and the likes of SJ Surya and Dhanush appearing in guest
Impressive Technical Crew
We spoke about Yuvan's music playing a key role, but what about
technicians like Velraj, VT Vijayan and Madhan Karky? Yes, while
Velraj and VT Vijayan has handled the camera and editing works
respectively, Madhan Karky has written the dialogues which promises
to be fresh.
Taapsee Pannu's Characterization
It is said that Taapsee will be playing a role with a negative
shade. After an impressive outing in Kanchana 2, it will
be interesting to see where Vai Raja Vai takes
Taapsee in the Tamil film industry.
