Santosh Sivan's Urumi has been in the news ever since its launch. It is jointly produced in a mega budget by Santosh Sivan & Prithviraj under the banner of August Cinema and has a pan-Indian star cast. The movie tells the story of Chirakkal Kelu Nayanar (Prithviraj) who has an epic mission of killing the viceroy of the Portugese empire in India, Vasco Da Gama. The film is spread between the second and third visit of Gama to India and chronicles a varied version of how Gama could have met a bloody death in AD 1524.
The film stars Prithviraj, Prabhu Deva, Genelia, Nithya Menen, Amole Gupte & Jagathy Sreekumar in crucial roles with extended special appearances by tamil star Arya and Bollywood beauties Vidya Balan & Tabu. Music for the film has been scored by Deepak Dev and the cinematography department has been handled by Mr. Sivan himself. Sreekar Prasad handles editing and Sunil Babu has been given the responsibility of recreating the atmoshere of AD 1524. It is written by Shanker Ramakrishnan, long time of associate of director Ranjith and director of the much-appreciated Island Express segment in Kerala Cafe. The film is slated for a wide release on March 31st, 2011. The trailer which has just released promises mindblowing visuals, actors looking their best, epic war scenes, stunt sequences and great performances. Prithviraj's look in the movie seems to be inspired by that of Salman Khan's in his mega budget epic misadventure Veer. Waiting eagerly for the movie.
