It is being said that the poster design, a colourful mask, is inspired from "Theyyam" - a performing art that is popular in Kerala. A few other posters have also been released to announce the commencement of the film's shooting.
One such poster shows Kamal, apparently, performing on stage and trying to hold a child's hand, while his other hand is on the camera. These posters seem to indicate that Kamal is a performing artist.
Besides the first look posters, the official teaser of "Uthama Villain" was also released. The teaser shows the colourful mask that opens its eyes with a thrilling background score. The teaser has gone viral and has received more than 3.4 lakh hits. To watch the teaser, click HERE.
