Normally… normally I wouldn’t turn down the opportunity to watch Vidya Balan and Tabu (together!) on a film, which is the case with Urumi (English complete title~ Urumi: The Warriors Who Wanted to Kill Vasco da Gama), but I just can’t shake the feeling that it’s gonna be more than two hours of cringe-worthy cartoon ‘demon-white’ colonialist with random musical numbers. I could maybe take it for two hours sans musical numbers and loads of pumping action fight sequences.
You can try it out even without subs.
Plus, it’s a Malayaman film, so I bet they’ve got their voices dubbed. As an alternative, I found their item songs. Though I’m unsure if Vidya has a more extensive role in the film, Tabu’s credit on IMDb lists it as a special appearance.
The original track song is called Aaranne Aaranne [clip], but the Telugu dub upload is much better for obvious quality reasons.
Vidya’s number after the break~
Vidya is an awesome AWESOME actress, but she dances terribly. Not like Tabu is a much better dancer, but at least her number looks like she enjoyed herself. I think I’ve read she enjoys dancing.
