Uttama Villain - Movie Reviews

Kamal Haasan’s films suffer sometimes because they end up looking like vanity projects, but Uttama Villain, directed by Ramesh Aravind, couldn’t be anything else
The Hindu
Kamal Haasan's Show
Gulte
A film that has a good screenplay but falls short of the cinematic lustre needed to keep it going.  It is not greater than its bits and pieces.  Like Vishwaroopam was.
India Glitz
Uttama Villain is clouded with high expectations, all over South India Lets see whether, it reaches the expectations of the audience or not !
Telugu Mirchi
So if you go to the theatres expecting an entertainer, then you are bound to be disappointed. But if you walk in wanting to watch Kamal Haasan and him alone on screen, then you will get nearly three hours of the man playing different roles both in front of and behind camera.

If you’re a fan of good cinema, then Uttama Villain will grip you. Watch this film more than once to understand its brilliance. And most importantly, watch it for Ulaganayakan Kamal Haasan’s terrific performance.

Kamal Hasan shows his acting power and class once again. He performed well showing his emotions and his expressions are of top notch. Pooja Kumar performed well as princess and attracted with her beauty. K.Vishwanath and K.Balachander touches all with their performances in emotional scenes. Uravashi performed well as Kamal's wife.

Give It A Try!

Needless to say that Kamal is the major credit of the film. His acting skills were found much more productive this time. Specially his acting in climax, makes the audience fall into tears too.
Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
Classy, compelling and connecting – that’s Uttama Villain for you
Only Kollywood
On the whole, Uttama Villain will only appeal to a certain section of audience. Kamal Haasan’s mature performance and a emotional climax are basic assets of the film. On the flip side, a lengthy second half and lack of entertainment values will go against the film big time. Finally, all those who like Kamal Haasan’s style of film making and melodrama might end up liking it. But for the rest, it is just a below average affair.
Telugu123
is essentially a ‘throw-the-kitchen-sink-at-the-audience’ type family drama
The Hindu
The story has been penned by Kamal Haasan and he plays a star called Manoranjan in this film
BollywoodLife
The film can be enjoyable in parts.
Deccan Chronicle
Kamal Haasan's Uttama Villain is a thought-provoking period comedy that revolves around an aging superstar forced to face his own mortality
REDIFF
Uttamudu's role though beautifully created along with that of Nazar and Pooja Kumar, crude jokes and characterisation did not go down well.Screenplay is not that gripping. Theyyam artists performance is the highlight in the film
AndhraHeadlines
UV is a definitely below average film pulled off by Kamal Hasan’s amazing screen presence. Those who have a shipment of patience can sit till the end. Especially, those who forever acknowledge Kamal’s visionary fervor are also to support the film. For common viewers, this is devoid of any sort of commercial entertainment and there is a danger that you may walk out of theater before interval. Commercially, UV may fare a bit well in metros and urban centers.
