It’s a movie that Mani Ratnam described as ‘huge and Santosh magic’. So it’s no surprise that 'Urumi - Padhinaindhaam Nootraandu Uraivaal', directed by Santosh Sivan, has enjoyed a good opening in Chennai though the Tamil version had hit screens more than a year after the Malayalam film.
But the icing on the cake must be the offer the filmmakers received for the television rights of the movie in Japan!
“A Japanese television channel approached us for the satellite rights of the Tamil movie. The channel officials clarified that they would subtitle the movie for telecasting,” confirmed an official spokesperson of the movie.
'Urumi' has Prithviraj, Prabhu Deva, Arya, Genelia, Tabu and Vidya Balan playing important roles. The movie recently came out tops at the Imagine India International Film Festival, held in Madrid. 'Urumi' was awarded Best Film.
“We’re planning to release the film in English,” says Prithviraj, who is also the co-producer of the film.
