What's it about

Krishnadas (Pritviraj) and his friend (Prabhu Deva) lead jolly life. One-day a corporate company's representative (Nitya Menen) comes to them and offers huge money for Krishnadas's ancestral property in Kerala. Krishnadas comes to know that his property has a history and it has huge value. In a flashback.. In Chirakkal, a warrior (Arya) fights against the Vasco da Gama and gets killed. So his son Kelu Naynar (Prithviraj) decides to kill Gama with a special weapon called Urumi that is made with Gold. His friend Vavvali (Prabhu Deva) also joins in his mission and later princess of Arakkal (Genelia) comes with them to kill the Gama.


is dubbed version of Malayalam film by the same name. Directed by acclaimed cinematographer cum director Santosh Sivan, Urumi has an interesting plot line. Santosh Sivan is renowned for making visually alluring films and Urumi is no exception. The movie has stunning visuals and never seen before locales. His technical artistry is visible in each frame in the film. You just marvel at several scenes on the screen as splendid action sequences unfurl.
Fantastic performances from the lead actors especially Genelia and Prithiviraj further elevate the film's mood. Pace of the film is slow and there are some dragging moments too, but despite them, the movie holds your attention till the end. The effort that has gone into making it is truly amazing to say the least.


Pritviraj in two varied roles comes out with stunning performance. He is equally good in the role of a modern guy and in the character of bygone era's warrior. As Vavvali, Prabhu Deva has done justice to his role. It is Genlia who catches one's attention. As a princess and a brave woman, she brings believability. In the action sequences, she does so perfect.
Nitya Menon, Tabu and Vidya Balan also appear in the movie but they have not much to do. On the technical front, Santosh Sivan as the cinematographer steals the show. Each frame is like a painting. His camera angles are astounding too. Wannabe cameramen must watch this film repeatedly to get the mastery over the art. You can also see his mastery in each department as he brings out best from his chief technicians - art director (superb and perfectly depicts the bygone era) and music director.


Urumi is a must watch film for its great visuals, good performances and its rich production values. It is a massive film and also very entertaining. Most of the time, it spellbinds you as the movie unfolds. Visually enticing movie.

Rating: 3.25/5
