Theri, Kabali, 24, S3 Top Tamil films for 2016.
2016 is going to be a feast for the fans as some very good movies are in the pipe line and are some of the best movies that are expected to be rich in content. Rajinikanth’s Kabali, Thalapathy’s Theri, Thala 57, Suriya’s Double bonanza with 24 and S3, and Vishwaroopam 2 from the universal star Kamal Haasan.
Jayam Ravi was the most succesful actor in 2015 in Tamil. He impressed the audience with films of different genres, and managed to deliver commercially successful films. This factor is now boosting the fortunes of “Miruthan”, as people curiously await its release. It is a zombie film directed by Shakti Soundar Rajan. Lakshmi Menon is the female lead.
Suriya, Samantha and Nithya Menon-starrer “24” has been written and directed by Vikram Kumar. It is a science-fiction thriller on time travel. This is a kind of experimental subject and something new for the Tamil audience.
Vijay and Atlee Kumar’s cop-thriller “Theri” has Samantha and Amy Jackson in the lead roles. The movie is bankrolled by Kalaipuli S Dhanu. Ilayathalapathy’s turn as a police officer has impressed the audience before, and people are hoping he will strike that chord again.
Rajinikanth has taken a break from his regular masala films and opted for a content-oriented film in the form of “Kabali”. The surprising part of the story is he is working with a young filmmaker: one-film-old Pa Ranjith. The gangster flick has Radhika Apte in the female lead.
Suriya will return to his most succesful franchise, “Singam”, with its third instalment. The Hari directorial is about an honest cop named Durai Singam. The first and second instalments were hits and people have high hopes from the series. Anushka Shetty plays the female lead again and Shruthi Haasan is the latest inclusion.
Dhanush, Trisha Krishnan and Shamili are starring in the political thriller written and directed by RS Durai Senthilkumar of “Ethir Neechal” fame. Thalapathy Vijay’s father SA Chandrasekar plays an important role in the movie.
Release: EID 2016
Ajith and Siruthai Siva’s next movie, which is currently referred to as “Thala 57”, will be their third movie together as a team. They were part of hit films like “Veeram” and “Vedalam”. The pre-production is still on and the shooting will begin in March-April as Ajith is in rest following the multiple surgeries.
Kamal Haasan’s much-delayed “Vishwaroopam 2” is expected to release in 2016. It is a sequel to “Vishwaroopam”, the 2013 controvesial spy thriller. The shooting was completed long ago, but the film has been delayed for mysterious reasons.
Vikram, Nayantara and Nithya Menen are part of the thriller “Iru Mugan”, directed by Anand Shankar. Shibu Thameens of “Puli” fame is producing the flick. The other attraction of the film is Anirudh Ravichander composing music for a Chiyaan film for the first time.
