Uthama Villain Review

Kamal Haasan is that typical superstar who wants more out of his glittering yet complicated life. The answer he gets in search of something more is an extra marital affair. The movie then revolves around him, his emotions and the complications involved in his life.

Pushed to an unavoidable situation, he decides to make the best film of his career and approaches his mentor, played by K Balachander to direct the film of his life.

Overall View: Uttama Villain is a fitting tribute to the late K Balachander and is a film all Kamal Haasan fans can be proud of. On the flip side, it lacks the zest to keep everybody hooked throughout.

Its been two years since Kamal Haasan gave us the Block buster hit ‘Vishwaroopam’ and it is worth the long wait for fans of pure cinema, for here comes ‘Uttama Villain’ another masterpiece from the one and only Ulaganayagan who touches new depths in Screenwriting.

The story is very simple and no spoiler alert is necessary as it is the telling of the story that is unique in ‘Uttama Villain’.

Verdict: ‘Uttama Villain will stay on a high pedestal in your hearts as one of Kamal Haasan’s Best.

Uttama Villain is completely a performance oriented film and most actors, if not all, have delivered their best.

While Kamal Haasan yet again proves why he can be arguably called as the most gifted actor this country has ever seen, special mention goes to Nasser who has competed with Kamal throughout.

Verdict: Uthama Villain is a classic, highly emotional movie. A perfect tribute by Kamal Haasan to his guru KB Sir!
