Mrityunjaya, truly the right word I can possibly use to describe the undying efforts of K. Balachander, Kamal Haasan and the rest of the crew. "Uttama Villain" comes as an interlacing of the professional and personal; of the modern way of story-telling and the traditional way of narrating a folklore; and of the real and the unreal. The main plot is simple which showcases the rather colourful life of an actor coupled with his hard-work to attain a reputation. One truth shatters the peace, and the actor only grows to become a cult to the audience. The timed decorous humour weaves in naturally, and thus makes the movie apt to the Indian theaters. Overall, the movie was a good one, and I would give it a rating of 4.20 on a scale of 5.0.
