It has been a pretty dissappointing year for all the fans of the bigger and well known stars of tamil nadu while films with a smaller budget and lesser knwn stars had struck gold!!! This is a showdown of the best and the worst movies of 2008,this time from kollywood. lets roll…
***ing: Kamal Hassan, Asin, Mallika Sherawat.
Directed by: K.S.Ravikumar.
Kamal hassan’s magnum opus was perhaps the only big budget movie to have survived this year. With Kamal Donning 10 roles it was a total treat on screen.
***ing: Jai, Sasikumar, Swathy.
Directed by: Sasikumar.
The dark horse of 2008, a classic movie set in the rustic 1980’s feel made its way to the hearts of many with some spellbound storytelling and soothing music. “”Kangal Irandal”” is an anthem for lovers now. A landmark tamil movie.
***ing: Narein, Prasanna, Ajmal, Vijaylaksmi.
Directted by: Myskkin
If “Chitiram Pesudathi” was good, this one was better. Yet another winner with some tout screenplay and an engaging story made sure the producers laughed all the way to the bank. A trendsetter nonetheless.
4. YARADI NEE MOHINI
***ing: Dhanush, Nayanthara, Karthik Kumar.
Directed by: Mithran.R.Jawahar.
This one is for the family. A perfect family entertainer went on to become one of the biggest grossers of 2008. It also catapulted Dhanush to the bigger league and made Nayanthara the queen of bollywood.
***ing: S.P.Charan, Shiva, Premji Amaren, Vaibhav, Vega.
Directed by: Venkat Prabhu.
Venkat Prabhu proved that his Chennai-600028 was no flash in the pan with this one. He also intoduced a new Genre to the public. An edge of the seat thriller with some perfect comic moments made saroja a household name. A youth carnival.
MISSED THE BUS!!!
These are some movies that were good but not good enough to make the top cut…
- VARANAM AAYIRAM
- SANTOSH SUBRAMANIAM
- DHAAM DHOOM
- POI SOLLA POROM
***ing: Rajnikanth, Pasupathi, Meena, Nayanthara.
Directed by: P.Vasu.
A disaster of a movie from P.vasu who thought that having Rajnikanth in the movie would rake in the moolah. Could have been a good movie if only he had concentrated on the script. People made sure they were nowhere near the theaters where the movie was on. Kuselan tops the list.
***ing: Vishal, Nayanthara, Upendra.
Directed by: Rajasekhar.
Nothing much to say about this movie. Vishal talked away to glory all throught making it a happy sleeping sesssion for the people who were dumb enough to watch this dud. A total disaster.
***ing: Shantanoo, Vedhika.
Directed by: Kalaprabhu.
Yet another no brainer movie which came out with lotsa hype around it. The director made a mess of A.R.Rahmans mesmerizing tunes by picturizing it the worst way possible. Phew!!!the only relief people got was that the movie was just 120 mins long.
4. INRALOGATHIL NA.AZHAGAPPAN
Directed by: Thambi Ramaiah.
Touted to be a comic caper, this was perhaps the only movie that gave audiences more pain than laughter. Vadivelu got a reality check to his hero image.
***ing: Bharath, Poonam Bajwa.
Directed by: Hari.
Perhaps the first time hari has failed at the box office. An Awry story with some over dramatic and over the top acting by barath failed to impress many. A dud nevertheless.
COUNT ME IN!!!
Many many moe duds that might not have made the top 5 but were equally unimpressive.
- DINDUKKAL SARATHY
- AND MANY MANY MORE…
