For all intents and purposes, Kavan has hitherto been the Tamil film of the year, and in order translate his vision on screen, ace Director, K.V. Anand, needed an actor of Sethupathi’s ability to. The dexterity with which Sethupathi balances the film’s commercial elements, mass scenes, socio-political themes, and message-oriented moments, speaks volumes of what an exemplary actor he is.


2.) Thalapathy Vijay in Bairavaa

The film may have got mixed to negative reviews from the critics, but they were almost unanimous in their praise of Vijay’s performance, and it certainly connected with the masses as is evident by the film’s box-office receipts. It takes a special actor to shine above an average script, and Vijay displayed his true class in doing so.

Balancing the good-and-evil act with aplomb, Jayam Ravi walked a tight rope in Bogan with consummate ease, and blew us away with a multi-layered act.

Mr. Jayam Ravi finds his name again on the list purely because that’s how good an actor he is. If he was picture perfect while alternating between good and evil shades in Bogan, then his performance as a naïve forest dweller coming to terms with the urban jungle is so affable that both the critics and audience fell in love with it from the get go.


5.) Arun Vijay in Kuttram 23

Arun’s acting chops were never in doubt, but after playing a string of supporting and villainous roles, it was a big test of his screen presence and aura to see if he could pull off the leading man act. Not only did he do so with style and poise, but also gave a hard-hitting performance that matched a hard-hitting film every step of the way.


6.) Vijay Antony in Yaman

Antony has certainly come of age as an actor, and his dual acts in Yaman were as intriguing and delicious as the film’s script.


7.) Rajkiran in Pa Paandi
