Raja Simhan, a warrior, battles against the British during their reign.
But things take a turn when he is betrayed by his friend Karuna and has
to fight for his life when he gets captured.
The story is straightforward, a
hardcore revenge action movie which takes time but serves the purpose,
oh yes after three generations. Bobby Simha and Kalairasan are two good
friends having a good time, but as it turns out Kalairasan cheats Bobby
Simha. And again after that the next life is no good for Bobby simha
either and Kalaiarasan outwits his friend yet again. So it turns out our
hero had enough and two generations later the truth dawns upon him and
its cold blooded revenge all the way.
films always look for some solid screenplay that takes the viewers on
the edge of the seat experience, Urumeen has its share of moments with
the second generation making the best out of whats deployed. In the
first, the director takes us back to the Kings and Queen days where
betrayal is more than just a sin, then he jumps into the present where
Bobby is a corporate employee. Bobby Simha breathes fire when it comes
to revenge, action and shows the raw grit necessary for a solo hero to
make strides in the commercial arena of Kollywood. He steals the show in
the scenes involving current generation, but Kalairasan easily fits his
role as the antagonist in the first two, putting out a respectable
director has done a fab job in differentiating the periods, and who
better than a good cinematographer can assist with the visuals bringing
the difference. Ravindhranath Guru has worked his gut out behind the
lens bringing the rightful shade in each and every dimension.
