All-Time Best Tamil Movies for You

Language is no barrier to creativity, and the regional film industries of India are proving it time and again. In case you want to experience pure art, good storytelling and direction, here are the 5 Tamil new movies you cannot afford to miss:

Anniyan (2005)

One of the best psychological thrillers of all time, Anniyan had to be at the top of this list. Vikram plays the lead alongside Sada. Vikram plays the role of Ambi, who is a straightforward consumer protection lawyer. He tries to tell everyone to follow the law and prosecutes those who don’t.

When he fails at raising civic awareness, he is frustrated and his anger leads to the birth of an alter-ego called Anniyan. He punishes corrupt people and wrongdoers as per the punishments mentioned in Garuda Puranam, one of the ancient Hindu scriptures.

Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa (2010)

There are just so many romantic movies out there, but Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa is very different from your regular romantics. It starts when an aspiring filmmaker (Silambarasan as Karthik) goes through ups and downs to unite with the love of his life (Trisha as Jessie).

Karthik belongs to a Hindu family and Jessie belongs to a Syrian Catholic Malayali family. Everything about this love story is so pure and real but being from different religions makes things difficult for them. The rest of the movie takes you through their journey towards uniting with each other.

Soorarai Pottru (2020)

Soorarai Pottru is a motivational drama movie inspired by the book, Simply Fly. It tells the story of Nedumaaran Rajangam,fondly known as Maara, by his friends. Maara tries to book a flight to go home when his father is on the deathbed but reaches late home since the flights are expensive.

He envisions starting an airline for the poor who can take flights at considerably cheaper rates. The struggles he had to go through to do something for the poor is the journey that takes the movie further.

Darbar (2020)

A Rajnikanth movie cannot be left out when we are talking about Tamil cinema. Darbar is a movie that starts with a chase between a cop and a drug dealer and slowly leads the cop to a bigger problem. Rajnikanth plays the top cop who is way ahead of the rules and does what is right without worrying about the rule-book.

Sunil Shetty plays the antagonist Hari Chopra and does a great job. Everything about the movie is enjoyable and though the story sounds like yet another cop vs mafia story, the execution of the story is fantastic.
