1. Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru (2017)
This Karthi starrer is fascinating and stands apart in the way Tamil movies generally portray cops, as it is based on Operation Bawaria, which was carried out by the Tamil Nadu police in the 1990s and 2000s. With Karthi’s smirk and witty speech, you root for him as he and his colleagues try to take down a group of dacoits in this action-packed thriller.
2. Chekka Chivantha Vaanam (2018)
Like any other Mani Ratnam film, this one is a visual and aural feast for the eyes and ears. Among the stars are Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathi, Jyothika, Aditi Rao Hydari and Prakash Raj as well as Arun Vijay and Silambarasan for the music and Santosh Sivan for the photography. Mani Ratnam’s return to the action genre is marked by the betrayals unleashed by a band of brothers as you watch this thriller.
3. Aaranya Kaandam (2011)
Aaranya Kaandam, a new action thriller, depicts the events of a single day in the lives of six people. In the hands of Thiagarajan Kumararaja, you’ll be enthralled by the film’s gorgeous characters and brilliant script. Jackie Shroff’s acting is high level, and you need to be on the lookout for it. Cult status has been acquired despite the film’s poor commercial performance!
4. Metro (2016)
Chain snatching is a major topic in this film, which is set in the city of Chennai. In spite of its lack of suspense, this film contains enough action to make you gasp. With the help of Ananda Krishnan, a family is depicted in this Ananda Krishnan-directed and written film.
5. Sila Samayangalil (2018)
Sila Samayangalil by Priyadarshan takes place in a hospital and tells the stories of a group of people who are awaiting the results of their HIV tests.
Prakash Raj’s role, a middle-aged guy, perfectly conveys the disease’s stigma through his gaze at the other people in the room.
6. Vada Chennai (2018)

Featuring no heroine, no melodies, and a slew of dark humor and raw emotions, the picture was directed by Mysskin. Filmed in Tamil Nadu, Mysskin and Sri of Vazhakku Enn 18/9 star as a man seeking to redeem himself in an oppressive society. It’s a must-see because of its suspenseful ending.
8. Pariyerum Perumal BA.BL (2018)
An intermediate caste Dalit guy is depicted in this film, which was made by Ranjith and directed by Mari Selvaraj, and tells his tale.
This film stands notable because of its depiction of caste-based discrimination and untouchability.
9. Adhe Kangal (2017)
Kalaiyarasan plays a blind cook in Adhe Kangal, a romantic thriller, but the movie doesn’t use the character’s condition to solicit compassion. Actress Sshivada, who portrays Deepa, is the real star of the show here. Her true reasons are only exposed afterwards.
10. Uriyadi (2016)
This political thriller, starring Vijay Kumar, is regarded as one of the best in Kollywood. When four college students were dragged into a political debate in the 1990s, their lives take an unexpected turn. If you don’t like Vijay, you might after seeing this.
