Urumeen narrates the story of a man reborn the third time after he's betrayed by his best friend. He's completely unaware of this until he comes across a very old book: rather, his own book since he held it in his both his previous generations. After getting the book, he also becomes a part of several unfortunate events that unfold in a series of twists and turns which lead him to discovering himself, through the book itself: how was friendship worse than betrayal and how even thinking of seeking revenge could be an honest feeling. As the film takes several turns to bring both the friends or the 'enemies' together, there also arrives an energetic blend of action, drama, patriotism, thrill and of course, the root solution to this: Revenge, as the tagline calls it "Always Ultimate".

Urumeen Review: An epic entertainer that has blockbuster written all over it!
8 July 2016 | by Prashast_SinghSee all my reviews

Movie : Urumeen (U/A)

Rating : 4.5/5

Bobby Simha, the national award winning actor, comes out in a full fledged solo action role in his recent action-fantasy-thriller URUMEEN. Directed and written by Shaktivel Perumalsamy, URUMEEN is completely a different attempt not only in Tamil cinema, but also in the cinema of the world. The film is technically and logically so well presented and honest that one hardly gets a chance to blink.

URUMEEN is a fantastic revenge saga that is presented very well, and that's the biggest plus. The fights, VFX, cinematography and editing are the best parts of the film. Bobby Simha rocks in all the roles he plays (this is not a spoiler that he has more than one role). He's the strength of the film and it's a privilege to see him in an action packed role. Reshmi Menon has less to do in both the halves, but presents before us a good performance till she remains on the screen. Kalaiyarasan as the antagonist is at times menacing. He gives a controlled and honest performance. Other cast also leaves an impression.

The story and screenplay of URUMEEN is something that can't be neglected at any cost. The script is wonderfully written and the screenplay is presented wonderfully on the screen. The locations of the film are a visual treat. The music by Achu Rajamani is an epic chartbuster and all the songs are excellent. The kind of artistic and creative cinematography we get to see in URUMEEN is never seen before. The climax is both visually a treat and is full of artistic creativity. It's so good that you need to watch it to realize. As stated before, the fights are excellent and are not be missed at all.

Overall, URUMEEN is an excellently plotted revenge saga that has a perfect blend of all the elements one expects in a complete entertainer. It has no dull moment at all and is likely to grip and thrill you, if you are really looking for some thrilling action flick, which too has a soul. Highly and strongly recommended for all!
