Uthama Villain
Kamal Haasan in "Uthama Villain"Facebook/ Kamal Haasan

The trailer of the much awaited movie "Uthama Villain", starring Kamal Haasan in the lead has been released. The trailer, which is 1:34 minutes keeps the audience guessing about the storyline and introduces the lead characters of the movie. The upcoming movie is directed by Ramesh Aravind.

The trailer, which begins with a dilaogue by Kamal Haasan indicates his strong screen presence in the movie and says that the movie is all about him. It shows Kamal in various looks and proves the actor's versatility when it comes to performance and characters. The short visual treat has raised the expectation over the movie.

The trailer assures that the movie is a dedication to K Balachander and will surely have a chapter which talks about the relationship which Kamal and Balachandar shared.

The trailer then introduces the characters played by K Vishwanath, Urvashi, Parvathi, Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah and Jayaram. It looks like the movie talks about two different characters who lived during two different eras.

The new generation Kamal is shown as a superstar who lives life in his own terms. K Balachander who is real life guru of Kamal is also seen as his guide and guard in the movie. 

Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan's role of 8th century theatre artist looks like someone who is downtrodden in the world of caste system and class division. The trailer, however, doesn't portray much beyond this. The noticeable aspect of the trailer is the music done by Gibran, which has a mystique charm to it.

The trailer has also gained high positive reviews from fans as well and here are some of the responses from audience after watching the trailer.
