Urumi is aimed at revealing the true colours of the world famous explorer Vasco Da Gama and his real intention of arriving at India. The explorer set his foot in India to steal Pepper and eventually decided that the land could be usurped as well. Urumi is about Vasco Da Gama setting his footprints strongly on the land and this paves way for the foreigners to conquer our land. A warrior arrives on the scene to save India and what ensues is a battle between the ‘Urumi’ and the guns. Unfortunately, during this battle, the warrior meets with a gory end and his son along with a few of his sympathizers escapes.

A few years later, the young son raises his voice against the foreigners and a battle follows between theUrumi and guns yet again. The final outcome of this battle forms the rest of the story along with a message on what would be the impact if foreign companies and retail outlets are allowed into the country.

Dynamic story and strong screenplay; Prithviraj, Prabhu Deva, and Genelia’s courageous acting, Santosh Sivan’s direction and cinematography.

As the saying goes too many cooks spoil the broth, too many characters have caused a lot of confusion. The sound of various instruments in the songs is a distraction.

To summarize:
A history brought before our eyes as a visual treat and it, certainly, is awesome. Therefore, this film can be enjoyed by all movie buffs.

Know what?
To play the role of Ayesha, Genelia trained herself in horse riding, sword fight etc.

What fans say?
Film is extraordinary. Haven’t seen such a historical film thus far. Feel like not missing such historical films from now on.
