The movie is set across three different time periods. The movie is usual revenge story which spans across 3 different generations. The whole story is about the clash between Simhaa and Kalaiyarasan and each of them wanted to see the other one dead. Along with this comes the usual Tamil cinema stereotypes. So basically there is nothing new in terms of plot. In short, it is Old wine in Old bottle
Bobby Simhaa has tried his first movie as protagonist and he has tried to do all gimmicks as Tamil cinema's usual lead hero. He screams. Slow motion shots. High speed shots. Shaking Angles. But does he have that mass appeal ? Definitely No. It looks like some kind of Lollu Sabha spoof. Especially Simhaa smashing the pawns is something which never did before. Similarly 'Madras' fame Kalaiarasan who resembles Jai at times tries to mimic something and fails as antagonist. His mannerisms were already seen in most of the Tamil movies. The negative shades never matched him. Reshmi Menon is just used to fill glamour quotient. Kaali Venkat and Appukutty are just fillers but they have done justice to their roles. Nothing more to brag about the rest of the cast.
Ravindranath Guru who cranks camera is a genius. His 48 Frame shots (High Speed shots) is a treat to watch. He knows how to keep the frame and each angle speaks for itself. The creative department is shouldered by him. 'Siru Nadai' is the only song which stays in our heart. The screenplay should have been concentrated more. Even though songs were below par, Achu Rajamani comes up with one of his best background scores. Editor San Lokesh did what he was asked to do. But still he could have worked a lot on first half. Lots of scissors are needed in first half. The second half spoils the party with lots of scenes and it show the 'Exit' for the movie. Kudos to Debutante Director Saktivel Perumalsamy for taking such a complex script. But the cast and the execution fails big time.
Urumeen is majorly a big let down. Already releasing a movie during 'Floods' is a stupid idea. Now with such a worst casting and complex script, the movie will miss 'A' centre audience. Bobby Simhaa who was a character artist should have stayed with that. The movie is highly complex and definitely is doubt that whether it can manage a good run in B and C centers. The long fight before the climax tests our patience.
