Director Venkatesh Maha's Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya (UMUR) starring Satyadev, Naresh, Suhas, Raghavan, Hari Chandana and Roopa has received positive review and ratings from the critics and audience.
Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya is a comedy-drama and the film is an official remake of the 2016 Malayalam film Maheshinte Prathikaaram. Vijaya Praveena Paruchuri, Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni have bankrolled it under the banners Arka Media Works and Mahayana Motion Pictures. It started streaming on Netflix from 30 July 2020.
Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya story: Uma Maheswara Ugra is a photographer. He is beaten up by a stranger when he tries to solve an issue in his village. He sets out to take revenge on the stranger as he feels insulted after the incident. How he avenges it forms the crux of the movie.
Analysis: Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya is a faithful remake of Malayalam film Venkatesh Maha has succeeded with his terrific casting and realistic outlook. The first half of the film is good, but the narration in the second half is slow. The climax could have been even better, say the critics and audience
Satyadev and Suhas have delivered brilliant performances, which are the highlights of Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya. Naresh, Raghavan, Hari Chandana and Roopa have done justice to their roles. The movie has decent production values and picturisation, music, action and dialogues are the attractions on the technical front, add the critics and audience

#UmaMaheshwaraUgraRoopasya #UMUR is charming & heartwarming. Beneath the humorous veneer, I liked how it discusses relationship dynamics. The visuals, music & life in Araku made me think of petrichor. Also, nice cameos by @mahaisnotanoun & @paruchurimd

@ActorSatyaDev such a heartwarming performance! Wonderful casting and cinematography. Beautifully directed by @mahaisnotanoun. #UmaMaheshwaraUgraRoopasya is another feather in the hat of contemporary telugu cinema. Pedda Vamsi movies la telugudhanam blended with a slice of life.

#UmaMaheshwaraUgraRoopasya is a viewing experience where you can smell the soil from which the story is being told and it's a definite reason why the film holds on its merit regardless of the comparisons with the original. The film is full of heart, narrated with flair. #UmaMaheshwaraUgraRoopasya, a superb remake of #MaheshintePrathikaram that retains the soul of the original and also adapts it to the Telugu setting so seamlessly. Bravo @mahaisnotanoun and team. Steaming on @NetflixIndia

Here's my review of @mahaisnotanoun's #UmaMaheshwaraUgraRoopasya, starring @ActorSatyaDev. It's the kind of film which would make one wonder - "Where's the conflict?" But it's so endearing and real that it made me smile. @netflix @Shobu_ @paruchurimd

#UmaMaheshwaraUgraRoopasya Poetically well Handled with Natural Characters. #Satyadev Shines in his role. Hope he'll get deserved break through this film. DOP @mahaisnotanoun ScreenPlay Ok in first Half. A bit Slow Second half. Climax would be better. One time watchable.

Watching #UmaMaheshwaraUgraRoopasya on @NetflixIndia Story is good narration runs at slow snail pace which makes it boring at times Lead actors and support staff did decent job Not on level as c/o kancherpalem by sare director #Maha @arkamediaworks backed 2.5/5 rating
Thank you Maha for #UmaMaheshwaraUgraRoopasya. Loved the Araku setting and Vizag yaasa. That scene where Satya Dev's father remarks 'Copy cat' and Satya Dev replies 'Inspiration' goes well for the film too. Satya Dev, Suhas and Roopa were all so good in their roles.
