As the actor is getting ready with Nerkonda Paarvai and his fans are celebrating his birthday (May 1st), we rank top 10 Ajith Kumar films, from 1990’s En Veedu En Kanavar to 2019’s Viswasam.
“Vaali” – Directed by SJ Surya, Vaali is an excellent movie, and certainly one of the best of 1999. A must watch even after so many years. Wonderful songs, great performances and a thrilling story.
“Yennai Arindhaal” – A Gautham Menon version of Ajith Kumar. One of his best performances of all time.
“Kandukondain Kandukondain” – This is the Ajith Kumar we are missing now. The casual performer, the natural actor. A beautiful movie.
“Mankatha” – Directed by Venkat Prabhu, Mankatha, is one of those films you’ll bring out once a year to watch again. Ajith Kumar in full flow. He’s the villain, and a cold-hearted killer!
“Amarkalam” – This movie directed by Saran is absolutely riveting. The music, actors and the story. One of the best performances of Ajith Kumar.
“Mugavari” – Seeing Ajith Kumar in different view. Mugavari can touch the hearts of all of the audiences.
“Dheena” – AR Murugadoss’ debut film. The film that changed Ajith Kumar’s career. Ajith Kumar became “Thala”. “Thala” became the king of opening. Industry pundits started to pay close attention to his box office drawing power.
“Citizen” – A gritty, get-the-bad guys revenge story starring a rough Ajith Kumar.
“Billa” – This is stylish film-making, which is good and bad. We liked it. Ajith Kumar’s sex appeal and cool polish plays as the perfect ‘script’.
“Viswasam” – Majority of Ajith Kumar’s recent movies have been ‘THALA AJITH’ movies, and we’ve ignored his ability to stretch as an actor. Viswasam is another such mass masala ‘Thala Ajith’ film, but unexpectedly family friendly with a tear jerker ending. Recent best.
These are our choices of top 10 Ajith Kumar movies. Undoubtedly, you will have a different one. Be sure to tell us which movie.
