Ramesh Arvind has reasons to celebrate. After the first look of his film Uttama Villain starring Kamal Haasan created a lot of buzz, he is ecstatic shooting the eighth century portion of the film in Chennai. “There are two sections in the film. One is the 21st century, which is finished and now the eighth century portions are being completed,” he says.

For Ramesh the film is just what he visualised. “There is no change in my direction but previously, I did not have these kind of resources and people. We tend to get handicapped in marketing our films because there is constraint in the budget. This time, resources are better and I am happy,” he says.

According to Ramesh, he has just gone by the storyboard and has not come across a situation where he had to make last minute changes. “We took one year to discuss the film and now it is a race to finish. This happens mainly because a lot of discussions happen in these kind of films during pre-production, which is rare in today’s industry. Right now everything is set, it is only execution,” he says.

Having found bliss in the script written by Kamal, the director states the challenge lay in the second half. “There will be a lot of work that will happen now. We will be working day in and day out,” he says.

Uthama Villain is on a worldwide run with the team going from Bangalore to Turkey to Madhya Pradesh and back to Bangalore to finally finish in Chennai. “I have not seen Kamal taking rest for even a day. He is on the run all the time. Luckily both our working styles match. As a team we have never given up on the energy,” says the director.
