though I have reservations about him as an actor, should accept that he has an eye for good cinema. That will stand Malayalam good stead to take it to its previous glory.

Visuals look promising. Hope Sivan has made a Halo and not Ashoka

The promo looks very fetching. The sets, costumes and visuals of 16th century Kerala look authentic (Sanjay Leela Bhansali, please note).

Santhosh has an eye for aesthetics and detail.

I hope he has made a believable, engrossing drama in Urumi. I cringe everytime I think of his disastrous Hindi debut - Asoka, especially the anachronisms, including the 90's sounding songs from Annu Malik and the hamming by SRK and Kareena!

'Before the Rains' was well-shot, had impressive performances from Rahul Bose, Nandita Das and Linus Roache) and had a great narrative. Terrorist was a landmark film. Halo (starring Rajkumar Santoshi, an adorable young girl and a puppy) was like a breath of fresh air (it's a shame it never got a decent release.

I hope Urumi lives up to the promise. The only sore-point I could see in the promo was a pink-schiffon-clad Genelia striking a seductive pose on top of a tree branch! (hope it's not in the lines of Kareena's 'San Sana Na Nan' from Ashoka)..

All the best Mr. Santhosh Sivan!

The costumes are anything but authentic. Expect Santhosh Sivan films to look great, but authenticity! That is a joke.

"The sets, costumes and visuals of 16th century Kerala look authentic".
Why dont you read the article first before writing rubbish.
HE says, "...in Urumi, you cannot re-create exactly how it was then, as women were topless in those days (during the Malabar period). So, you stylise the kind of dresses they wore in that era."
Also prithvi says the costumes were purposely designed to appeal to a pan india and int'l audience.

The lower castes were not allowed to cover their 'top' due to obvious reasons. It is funny how the new generation saffron goons are proud of their culture and act like women with less clothes are an isnsult to their culture and religion.
