While VV Vinayak unveiled the logo, the first trailer was released by Bellamkonda Suresh.
Later addressing the gathering VV Vinayak said, “Santosh Sivan is my favourite cinematographer who also won the national award. I’ve learnt from him that a weapon is called ‘Urumi’. The trailer gives an impression of Hollywood flick. I wish this film will earn lot of profits to Shobha Rani.”
Bellamkonda Suresh said, “This movie was released in Malayalam and became a super hit film. This film features the after effects of the incident when Vasco De Gama ruins a family when he visited India. I hope this movie will become a grand success and earn a good image to Santosh Sivan.”
Distributor Shobha Rani of SVR Media banner said, “Media helped us to buy the rights of this film. I was in Kerala for a week to buy the film’s rights. We got the rights through Arya’s recommendation. The reason for naming the film as ‘Urumi’ is the name of the weapon in the film. It’s a unique knife and is one of the characters in the film. This film showcases the cruelty of Vasco De Gama. One can find Santosh Sivan’s mark in every frame. It’s is not possible to remake this film once again. Hence we decided to dub this film. We are trying our best to present the film without loosing the originality. We are planning for the audio launching event in the next week.”
