5. Dharma Durai
The movie stars Vijay Sethupathi and Tamannaah in the lead roles. A village set-up has been provided with Vijay as an embarrassing figure at first, but later we come to know about his glorious past. The film was awarded for the best lyrics at the 64th National Film Awards
‘Metro’ projects the most ignored backdrop of the society- chain snatching. Bobby Simhaa as the leader of the gang has done a good job, but it lacked the grip of narration. It became an entertaining Tamil crime film with a favourable direction.
Science fiction is something that is very rare to see on Indian screens, and this movie has done justice to this genre. In ‘24’, Surya has proved his potentiality of being a versatile actor. He played three roles and delivered all of them with ease. This was a hit on screens for projecting a rare genre.
Arun Kumar’s ‘Sethupathi’ shows the most used plots of a Tamil Movie: Tough cop and Madurai. And it is a known story film where a villain from Madurai is brought down by an honest cop, the hero. However, despite the usual plot, it is an entertaining movie with a great sense of energy in acting and silly jokes now and then.
This film is necessary watch as it has Dhanush playing dual roles for the first time. What could be better? The energy and acting by the actors kept the audience glued to their seats. It has earned 50 crores at the box office and got 4/5 by the Times of India.
This movie serves an interesting plot where a wealthy businessperson’s mother is sick, and the doctors have no hope. He seeks help from a holy man who advises him to live a life of a beggar for 48 days and during these 48 days, he cannot reveal his identity. The execution of the movie is incredible and is necessary watch.
