No rush to release Urumi in Kollywood

It's been almost an year since the Mollywood version of Sathosh Sivan's period flick Urumi hit the screens. However, contrary to other multi-lingual films, the director and its actor-producer Prithviraj was never in a rush to screen it in other states.

"Urumi is film that has to be seen on the big screen if one is to experience its true essence, and we wanted it to be released properly," says Prithviraj. Though they had planned to release it earlier, production companies in Kollywood had other films that were waiting to be released during the allotted time.

"This, however, worked as a boon as it gave me more time to work on the dubbing and editing, rather than come out with a rushed job," says Santhosh, adding that a release date for the Tamil version will be announced soon.

The film, a fantasy tale of a man who wanted to kill Vasco Da Gama, was critically acclaimed for its script, effects and was also screened at several international film festivals.

The film stars Prabhu Deva, Genelia D'Souza, Nitya Menen and Jagathy. Actors Arya, Vidya Balan and Tabu played guest roles. It was a super hit in Kerala and has fared reasonably well in Tollywood too.
