'Uttama Villain' Box Office: How Much Loss did Makers Suffer due to Delay in Release?

The Tamil movie is a emotionally-moving drama movie, which features Pooja Kumar and Andrea Jeremiah in the female lead roles. "Uttama Villain" is also a special for the audience as it is the last film of late legendary actor and director K Balachander.

Kudos to @ThirrupathiBros for continuing to invest in good cinema all along. This is a diff level for them too. Grt
#VaiRajaVai going on. #Yuvan BGM on veralevel. Brings in an International sound. Extrasensory perception is the key plot idea. Decent so far

#UttamaVillain 3.5/5 Very Good, classy with a towering performance #KamalHaasan,the heart & soul along with ensemble cast of fine actors.
#UttamaVillain 3.5/5. @Ramesh_aravind has finely stitched it with nice dialogues by #Kamal, great technical crew & a terrific climax .
#UttamaVillain - 3.5/5. Fab supporting cast of Urvasi, MS Bhaskar, Poo Parvathy & awesome KB sir. Nassar super as comic villain.
#UttamaVillain 3.5/5. Liked life & times of superstar Manoranjan, has an autobiographical streak. Scenes between Kamal & KB sir so realistic
#UttamaVillain 3.5/5. Solid Scenes - Urvasi in hospital with Kamal, Andrea scene with Kamal in the car, Kamal catching practice with son
#UttamaVillain - 3.5/5. I wish the story had focussed more on Manoranjan the star,the idea of a film within a film was a little over the top

#UttamaVillain Oversea Report : Outstanding & Emotionally attached movie. Climax was major highlights of the movie #KamalHaasan & #KB Sir
Time for the Ulaganayagan! Time for #UttamaVillain!
#UttamaVillain: Yes, you will get teary-eyed if you connect with it. There are a few lows, but when you eat the fruit, throw away the seeds.
#UttamaVillain: A decent first half which shoots up big 15 mins post interval. The climax is the trump card, deserves a standing ovation.
#UttamaVillain: Immortal classic. A highly emotional film which has been pulled off with subtlety. Ulaganayagan is here in style!

@itisprashanth Urvasi, Nasser, KB sir, KV sir, MS Bhaskar were awesome. KH shudve let Crazy write the comedy portions. Some of em didn't wrk
@itisprashanth - Movie is decent. US version is 172 mins. KH's performance was awesome. Music was amazing. Pooja Kumar wasn't good.

#UttamaVillain - Movie within movie and moving between centuries seamlessly and overlaying of immortality theme between the 2 - Brilliant!

Immortal life is like an endless narration.. Death is inevitable but what we do when we live matters the most. #UttamaVillain
The movie leaves you in tears after making you laugh. A wonderful meaning of mortal life conveyed it a subtle manner..#UttamaVillain
Comedy was spontaneous and the one liners and the dialect were highly efficient in kindling roars of laughter . #UttamaVillain
A perfect dedication by kamal sir to his guru KB Sir.. Apt one .. #UttamaVillain
Kamal sir still keeps inspiring, and leaves the audience awestruck with his performance.. Especially in the last 30 minutes #UttamaVillain
The way the stories inside the movie are intertwined with each other proves the efficacy of the master.. Hats off #UttamaVillain
A story inside a story.. What an epic Indian movie after a long time. Gibran has given an astounding BGM and songs.#UttamaVillain
Epic screenplay and weighted performances.. Dialogues and poems throughout the movie were catchy #UttamaVillain
