Films with rural backdrops
have become the nitty-gritty element of Tamil film industry
over the years. Especially with some of those trendsetting
movies gaining international recognitions, it has become a
ritual for filmmakers to travel along the same way. Udumban
is the latest one to join the league that is extensively
shot across the locales of Karuvelam village.
Singing praises of Dhilip Roger, director S Balan said,
“Initially Dhilip doubted whether he would be able to
transform his modern guy image into a raucous villager.
It is noteworthy that Dhilip is India’s No.1 Bike Racer. For more than a
year, the actor underwent vigorous training over stunt and
dance. Accordingly, he was able to carry out the role of
Udumban with perfection.”
