Uttama Villain, a Tamil drama film directed by Ramesh Aravind and released in 2015, stars Kamal Haasan, K. Balachander and K. Viswanath in the leading roles. It is a story about an aging actor named Manoranjan, who discovers that he has only a few days left to live. As he returns to his hometown to spend his last days with his family and friends, he seeks to complete his final piece of work as a tribute to the art and craft of acting.

The movie starts with Manoranjan, who is a successful and celebrated actor, working on a movie set. He is shown to be a charming and flamboyant character, always surrounded by his fans and well-wishers. However, just when he is about to shoot an important scene, he collapses on the set and is rushed to the hospital.

The diagnosis reveals something shocking: Manoranjan has brain cancer and has only a few days left to live. He then decides to spend his last days with his estranged wife and daughter, whom he had left years ago due to his inability to balance his career with family life.

As Manoranjan heads back to his hometown, he decides to complete his final piece of work, a play called 'Uttama Villain,' which he believes will be his greatest contribution to the world of acting. The play is about an aging superstar named Uttaman, who is facing similar challenges in his personal and professional life. As he prepares for the play, Manoranjan revisits his past, trying to make amends with those he had hurt over the years.

The film then showcases the two parallel stories: one is the play, which is a retelling of Manoranjan's life, and the other is Manoranjan's personal life, which is playing out in real-time. As the play progresses, we see Uttaman's journey from being a successful, famous actor to an old, lonely and deserted man, which mirrors Manoranjan's journey in life. Uttaman's search for closure and redemption through his art is reflective of Manoranjan's own struggle to find solace in his final days.

The movie beautifully captures the themes of life, death, and legacy. It is a tribute to the art of filmmaking and acting, with Kamal Haasan and K. Viswanath playing their parts with brilliance. It is also a celebration of the enduring legacy of K. Balachander, who plays an important role in the movie as Manoranjan's mentor.

The movie's soundtrack, composed by M. Ghibran, is another highlight, with tracks like 'Kamal Haasan,' 'Loveaa Loveaa,' and 'Uttaman Introduction' being among the most popular.

Overall, Uttama Villain is a moving and poignant movie that showcases the depth and range of Kamal Haasan's acting skills. It is a must-watch for those who love stories about life, death, and the pursuit of one's passion.

Uttama Villain is a 2015 romance movie with a runtime of 170 hours. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.3.
