The year 2019 was eventful for Kollywood that saw a host of big films being released. We saw new attempts that eschewed age-old templates, good attempts and bad attempts too. While some films were celebrated and some were oversold, there were a few films which did not receive the appreciation they deserved. Here are five such films.
Although a little stretched out, it was a great thriller headlined by Vivek. These days makers just go ahead with titles that make no sense, this film’s title had underlying meanings intertwined with the plot. Directed by Vivek Elangovan, the film also features Dev, Pooja Devariya, and Charlie. Vivek is cast superbly as the retired cop and the twists are satisfying.
Execution at it’s best is what I would say about this film. Arun Vijay excels in a dual-role keeping you at the edge of the seat till the very end. Directed by Magizh Thirumeni, the film also features Tanya Hope, Yogi Babu, Sonia Agarwal, and Vidya Pradeep.
Not a gamer but I thoroughly loved the idea of ‘three chances’ used in the film. The detailing in posters, editing, and Taapsee‘s performance were all brilliant. Directed by Ashwin Saravanan, the film also features Sanchana Natrajan, Vinodhini and Ramya Subramanian.
Yet another crime thriller where Vijay Antony‘s poker face worked wonders. It is based on the Japanese novel ‘The Devotion of Suspect X’ which was itself made into a film titled ‘Suspect X’. Directed by Andrew Louis, the film also features Arjun Sarja, Nasser and Ashima Narwal.
A good, cop film that spoke about the pressure policemen face inside the control room. Atharvaa successfully joined the list of actors who donned the cop uniform with this film. Directed by Sam Anton, the film also features Hansika, Yogi Babu, and Radha Ravi.
