Remake film rules Tamil box office
By Aparna Nath,
Chennai, May 1 "Naan Avan Illai", the remake of K. Balachander's
old classic that had Gemini Ganesan in the lead, is slicker and
technically superior. It has appealed not only to the urban
audience but to rural movie buffs too. Jeevan consolidates his
position after his successful "Thiruttu Payale".
The top five Tamil films are:
1. "Naan Avan Illai" - Director: Selva. It is a great
entertainer and Jeevan has done full justice to the role
immortalised by Gemini Ganesan.
2. "Unnale Unnale" - Director: Jeeva. Cinematographer
turned-director Jeeva's love story has gone down well with the
3. "Paruthiveeran" - Director: Ameer. Despite new films
releasing, "Paruthiveeran" is rushing to complete 100 days.
4. "Mozhi"- Director: Radhamohan. Mozhi has been declared
a blockbuster and Radhamohan is going to remake it in Hindi.
5. "Mayakkannadi"- Director: Cheran. The film has left
the audience cold. It will be better for Cheran to stick to
rural themes. The length is also a deterrent.
