After so much of anticipation and waiting, Kamal Haasan's Uttama Villain will finally make it to the big screen this Friday. But the movie is not alone as it has a companion in Vai Raja Vai or should we say competition.
That's right, both Uttama Villain and Vai Raja Vai will be releasing this Friday making this weekend ever so exciting for all Tamil movie goers.
So what can one expect from both these movies and what would be the reasons to watch Uttama Villain and Vai Raja Vai?
Although a Kollywood lover would tell you that one needs no reason to enter a cinema hall which is about to show Kamal Haasan on the screen, we thought these below mentioned reasons would help a person new to Tamil cinema make up his mind.
Also with a stiff competition from Uttama Villain, these reasons would serve well for Vai Raja Vai and would hopefully help you to catch both these movies on the silver screen.
Apart from the only similarity which lies in the experience index of its respective directors, these two upcoming movies sure have their own style and substance.
Check out the top 10 reasons to watch Uttama Villain and Vai Raja Vai in the slides below:
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 interesting.
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 through VRV.
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 roles.
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.
