12 MOVIES WHICH CREATED AN IMPACT IN 2011 – HALF YEARLY REPORT

Half the year has flown by already and the going has been pretty decent for Tamil cinema. Movies like Aadukalam and Myna really cleaned up at the National awards and gave Tamil film fans ample reason to puff out their chests with pride. Among the films released thus far, quite a few did good business. There were quite a few which captured the imagination of the public.

There was the usual eclectic mix that is so distinctive of Tamil films – offbeat films, romances, quirky comedies, purely commercial entertainers, and even an epic saga. All these films had one thing in common, they managed to make an impact and connected with people at various levels. Let us look at these films that did the best job of leaving an impact, so far this year.

Kavalan
Kavalan
Vijay’s big Pongal release was Siddique’s Kavalan with Asin as his heroine. With this film, Vijay broke away from the masala films he was specializing in, and attempted something different. His experiment worked big time and even managed to silence his severest critics, winning universal acclaim for his sensitive performance.

Kavalan faced more than its fair share of obstacles, but the film gamely smashed its way through them not unlike the way Vijay carelessly mows down the goonda armies of the villain in his films and went on to become a hit.

Trade talk: The film made nearly 55 lakhs in the opening weekend itself at Chennai Box Office thanks to Vijay’s fans even though its release was crucially delayed by one day and managed to sustain its momentum all the way to the finish line.

Public opinion: Vijay received a lot of appreciation for this role. In addition to this, viewers absolutely loved the twist in the tale.
