A multi-starrer film ‘Urumi’, starring Prithviraj, Prabhu Deva, Arya, Genelia, Nithya Menon and Tabu in lead roles and Vidya Balan in a special role is being directed by cinematographer-turned-director Santosh Sivan. SVR Media banner is bringing this Tamil film to the Telugu audience.

The audio of this movie was recently launched at Hotel Taj Deccan which witnessed the participation of the who’s who from the film industry. Director Samudra released the first audio CD and presented it to the Prithviraj couple. Each song was released by the guests followed by the trailers release.

Speaking on the occasion, Samudra said, “I’ve seen the trailers of this film. Santosh Sivan is the pride of India as a cinematographer. He worked very hard to direct this film. The end result will be fruitful due to their team’s hardwork. This banner has brought numerous good films from other languages.” Bheemineni Srinivas said, “Santosh Sivan is one of the best directors in India. The trailers are tempting me to watch the film immediately. Right now, dubbing movies are more in demand. SVR Movies always comes out with good films. I wish this film will become a big hit.”

Actor Prithviraj added, “I did a Telugu film. This is a dream film of Santosh Sivan because he wanted to bring the Malayalam film into other languages also. I’m happy that his dream is coming true.” Director Santosh Sivan said, “I wanted to direct a Telugu movie. Most of the films in our country are based on independence movements. In this film I have projected Vasco Da Gama’s episode in India. Apart from the history, it also has good entertainment for the audience. I hope that the Telugu audience will like the film.”

Shobha Rani said, “Our banner got this movie with the support of media. We were in Kerala for a week to get this film. It was Arya who recommended our banner to the producers. ‘Urumi’ is a weapon which is also a character in the film. This film will showcase the cruelty of Vasco De Gama. Every frame in this film will display Santosh Sivan’s mark. It’s just not possible to remake this film. We are trying hard to present the film without disturbing the originality. I wish Santosh Sivan will take more great films in Telugu. I wish all the best for the entire team. I’m confident that ‘Urumi’ will become a big hit.”
