Opinion on Tamil cinema ?

I have seen some comments where people kinda disregard tamil movies. Now, I grew up in Chennai so I maybe biased, but I think they make the best movies in India after maybe malayalam films. Even some commercial movies are extremely well made, like asuran (watch it if you haven't, it's amazing). Recently karnan came out and apparently it's haunting and raw. Tamil movies are very rusty, local and say very interesting stories. I can give multiple examples like ka ka ka po, Naanum rowdy thaan (amazing comedy film), Vikram vedha, vada Chennai (a magnum opus), pariyerum Perumal etc. Even star movies are muuch better than telugu star movies. People like dhanush make such good movies, even master had considerably less commercial contents than, say, a Bob movie. So..what's your opinion on tamil cinema and what are your fav tamil movies bondhas ? It's very difficult for me to say one, but yuganiki okkadu (ayirathil oruvan) is a movie that hit me hard. The war crimes they show, the themes are amazing. Can't wait for part 2!

Tamil Cinema and multi-starrers

Tamil cinema relies heavily on its star power that is a script is heavily in favour of the mass hero. Take the recent β€œPetta” and β€œBigil” where you had a range of actors in blink and miss roles with the big star hero dominating the screen time. Why are some of the big stars of today not interested in multi-starters?

Has Tamil movie industry always been like this? If we were to look at the 50’s and 60’s the 2 big guns (Sivaji and MGR) only acted 1 movie together in their careers and that to at their start. Their boundaries and roles were well defined. However the 2nd tier actors (Gemini Ganesan, Muthuraman, JaiShankar and Sivakumar) acted with each other and also the 2 big guns in a range of movies. This I felt enabled them to experiment and try different roles based off what was offered at the time. Whilst both Sivaji and MGR stuck to their own styles and were the main leads whilst everyone else followed suit.

If we come to the 70’s and 80’s once again Rajini and Kamal never crossed paths after both became big. Even the Rajini and Kamal movies were done at Rajini’s fledging days (when he was more known to be a supporting actor and villain rather than a big hero) and couldn’t really be deemed as a multi starrer. The 2nd tier actors (Vijayakanth, Karthik, Prabhu, Mohan, Sathyaraj, Bhagyaraj etc) did the odd movie together. With a special mention to Prabhu who did not hesitate to act with the aforementioned heroes even if he played second fiddle and managed to hold his own (Guru Sishyan, Vetri Vizha, Agni Natachitram, Chinna Thambi Periya Thambi etc).

In the 90’s once again there were a few multi-starrers for example movies starring Vijay and Ajith, Ajith and Vikram, Ajith and Prashanth, Vijay and Surya etc. The most prominent of these movies was Pithamagan which gave two growing stars equal footing but once again all the above is when these heroes started off and not at the peak of their powers. The generation after this such as Simbu, Dhanush, Karthi, Jiva, Jayam Ravi etc preferred a more solo route rarely acting with their colleagues.

I’ve always wondered why can’t two heroes of the same stature work together in Kollywood. Is it:

  • lack of scripts
  • too much ego
  • fear that a film might flop if it’s skewed to a particular actor
  • Audience not accepting it

You see multi-starrers all the time in Hollywood, Bollywood and Mollywood where the big guns work together at their peak and even donned roles that broke their stereotyped portrayal if the s

By and large, I trust Baradwaj Rangan's reviews. So I expect his top10 list of southern Indian cinema should also be a good starting point for those who want to start.

Here's the list.

Do chime in below with your own views/top 10. Just remember, no spoilers.

Recommend excellent cinema from Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, and Telugu w/o any song-dance sequence?

Background songs are fine or the ones that fade/stop after few moments. It seems I am kind of allergic to song-dance sequences, so gave up on it.

For example I loved Visaranai (what a film!), but Asuran was just better than meh. Super Deluxe, Aranya Kandam are just too good, so is Shutter! I have watched Mysskin's Onaayum Aattukkuttiyum and I couldn't dig it - esp. the acting part.

By the way I loved Anbe Sivam. I know it has song and dance but it was an exception.

PS. I especially dig slow burn, dark comedy, neo-noir, coming of age and hate overdoing, overacting, portraying actors/scenes as larger than life.

What are some of the best thriller movies in Tamil Cinema?

While I started thing about your questions the first thing comes to my mind is athisiya manithan which is very popular in 90’s , but when we see the movie now we seems it as comedy movie, Another movie is athey kangal which is very creepy till now and another one is Gautham menon flick nadunisi naigal but theme of movie and scenes are little voulger. trmovies Last but not least ulaganayagan kamal hasan flicks sivapu rojakal.

The responsibility as Tamil rasigargal to give vaazhkai to nalla figures: Which new face should Tamil Cinema cast next and light lamp in their lives?

Continuing our glorious history of launching new figures into the show business, post Covid-19, we have the responsibility to give a helping hand to the darkened future of many chicks.

So, in this thread, you can nominate the person you would like to see next in Tamil Cinema.

The Traditional rules for nomination are:

  1. No tamil girls - Only outside figures are allowed. This is the Rule which our ancestors followed, we follow and the next generation will follow. Local items othukka maattom.
  2. No dark complexioned girls - This is self explanatory. Slight dusky girls allowed if they are otherwise nice. Depends on other things. But karuppis vandha kallala adipom.
  3. Foreign figures are allowed - Due to the contributions of akka Amy Jackson, all foreign ladies are allowed subject to Rule (2).
  4. Plastic surgery - If she has undergone plastic surgery, technically she has got a new face and is to be nominated as a new entry. Respect the pain and effort guys.
  5. Shouldn't know how to act - Last but most important. She shouldnt be an excellent actor. Good looks are enough for us. Koncham acting therinja podhum.

I'll start the nomination with Sonam Bajwa - notable film 'Muklawa':

Quarantine fun - What is the most overplayed trope in Tamil cinema for you?

For me, it has to be 'Love at first sight' . The hero is a happy-go-lucky guy chilling in life without any worry and suddenly crosses path with a girl. Then there is this slow motion, slow music on the background, the girl says something to her friend laughing or helps someone in need while smiling and the guy realizes 'Indha maari ponnu dhaan naa theditu irundhen' .
