Comedy king Vadivelu rules Tamil
By Aparna Nath, Indo-Asian News Service
Chennai, July 25 (IANS) Did anyone expect a Tamil film with
comedian Vadivelu as the hero to rock at the box office? No, but
it is doing so.
Once again, Shankar has proved that he is the man with the Midas
touch. Whether he is directing or producing, all his films turn
out to be money-spinners.
The top five Tamil films are:
1. "Imsai Arasan 23aam Pulikesi"; Director: Simbu Devan -
It is a laugh riot and audiences are rolling in their seats and
aisles over the antics of comedy king Vadivelu.
2. "Uyir"; Director: Samy - When this film was first
released, it was not a big draw but the unusual and
controversial theme of a woman seducing her young brother-in-law
has caught the fancy of Tamil viewers. Sangeeta as the
sex-starved sister-in-law has put in a fiery performance.
Director: Bhagyaraj - With its fun-filled moments, the film is
the surprise hit of 2006. It remains to be seen whether it will
bring new offers for plump Saranya, who is actor Bhagyaraj's
4. "Thalainagaram"; Director: Suraj - This is another
unexpected hit. The big question is - will director Sundar C.
stop directing films and act more instead?
5. "Thiruttu Payale"; Director: Susi Ganesan -
This is one of the biggest successes in Susi Ganesan's career.
The film hyas just completed a 100-day run, which is a rarity
