Behindwoods review board
Starring: Kamal Haasan, Mohanlal, Anuja Iyer, Nasser, Lakshmi.
Direction: Chakri Toleti
Music: Shruti Haasan
Production: Rajkamal International, UTV Motion Pictures
Just about 13 months after Dasavatharam, we have yet another Kamal starrer knocking at our doors. The same time last year we thought that it would be at least a couple of years before we could see the Universal Star on screen again. But that was when Marmayogi was in focus. A few unexpected twists, a surprise announcement and approximately six months later, we have Unnaipol Oruvan ready to hit screens.

The last time Kamal Haasan featured in a remake was Vasool Raja MBBS. That was inspired from the cult classic Munnabhai M.B.B.S in Hindi. Kamal will not consent to a remake unless he sees something special. In fact, he wouldn’t consent to any movie if there isn’t anything new and exciting. That is reason enough for us to look forward to Unnaipol Oruvan with great interest. Kamal would have seen something very special in A Wednesday to think about remaking it under his home banner.
  Unnaipol Oruvan

What is so special? It deals with something that connects the lives of every Indian. It is unfortunate yet true that terrorism has become a reality and a part of our lives. Down south, we may be blessed to be able to move around without as yet having to fear any life threatening elements. But, there are parts of India where terror and fear are inescapable parts of life. This bitter and shaking reality is not far from us and that is why Unnaipol Oruvan will be as relevant as cinema can get.

After the rousing and inspiring account of how terrorism can stir the common man was delivered by Neeraj Pandey, Kamal’s version will sure have some added elements to increase the impact and relevance to our part of the country.

Apart from the social and national aspect, Unnaipol Oruvan is exciting because of its ensemble cast. We may have had to wait more than two decades to see two of India’s finest actors come together, but we are sure that the wait will be well rewarded with a combination that is one of its kinds. Kamal and Mohanlal will be joined by a couple of other master performers like Lakshmi and Nasser. Shruti Haasan’s music is a marquee attraction while Chakri Toleti’s debut will be watched with interest.

Let’s hope that Unnaipol Oruvan is an experience like never before.
