The story of the film is based on thieves. A young man named Manoj ([Vinay Fort]) joins with a theft guru Kelu Ashan ([Sudheer Karamana]), to learn the way of art. However, Kelu Ashan is old and retired so he introduces him to one of his students Benny ([Chemban Vinod]) to be trained in the art of robbery. Benny trains him well. After Benny was caught, he meets Kelu ashan again who teaches him the 'Science of Theft'. Manoj eventually gets caught. He is sent to jail, where he meets Benny. The pith of the story starts to unravel then. Manoj was actually in search of a thief, Named Carlos who have murdered his parents when he was abroad. His intention to become a thief and to get in to jail(as he learned Carlos was also in Jail, from Kelu ashan), was with this objective. He finds the thief who have murdered his parents. He then hatches a plan and traps the thief and kills him viciously by slathering sugar solution all over his body and scattering ants. Later the young man starts an old age home and his co-thieves are shown living happily.Vinay Forrt as Manoj

Sify gave the verdict "above average" and said "Urumbukal Urangarilla may not offer many surprises and may not be that great for a discerning viewer. But even then this one has its moments for sure and ends up as a decent entertainer".
Metromatinee.com wrote "Urumbukal Urangarilla is nicely executed and technically the movie stands on its feet", also added "Urumbukal Urangarilla is a decent enough effort that engages off and on. There is some well worked out humour and if some avoidable glitches werent there this one would have endeared even better to the audience".
Indiaglitz.com rated 2.5 out of 5 stars and wrote "'Urumbukal Urangarilla' intends to entertain. There are occasions where things go flat and there is a lull in the narrative. Parts of second half were so. But the movie picked up speed towards the climax and overall feel tended towards being impressive".
Nowrunning.com rated 2.5 out of 6 stars and said "Urumbukal Urangarilla is original and creative, and comes across as an appealing cinematic disquisition on a population that apparently never sleeps. It's a quirky , comic film that provides plenty of silly, and yet inventive fun".
The music is scored by Gopi Sunder and tracks are penned by Hari Narayanan.
