Kalaipuli S Thanu grabs Urumi - Padhinaintham Nootrandu Uraivaal

Santosh Sivan's directorial venture 'Urumi' is going to release in Tamil soon. "I want Urumi to release in as many languages as possible. At present, I am focusing on its Tamil versions," says the cinematographer-director. The Tamil version will see the light of the day in April.

The world rights of Urumi, featuring a stellar cast of Prithviraj, Genelia, Arya, Tabu, Prabhu Deva, and Vidya Balan has been bagged by Kalaipuli S Thanu. The producer feels that Urumi can hold its own among the best of World cinema and wants to promote it across the globe and make sure that it gets the recognition it deserves.

Urumi is an epic saga that tells the story of Chirakkal Kelu Nayyanar and his attempt to resist the advance of the Portugese by assasinating the Portugese explorer, Vasco da Gama who had landed on the Malabar coast. The Malayalam and Telugu versions were released in year, which impressed the critics and audience alike.

Urumi is produced by Santosh Sivan, Prithviraj and Shaji Natesan under the banner of August Cinema. Music is by Deepak Dev, a former keyboard player with A.R. Rahman.
