In these particularly trying times, it’s important to not step out as much as possible and engage in activities that would persuade us to stay home. One such great one is catching up on our favourite films.


Behindwoods has put together a comprehensive list of 150 Tamil cult films for you to choose from as three parts of 50 films each. These films to this date are popular, have a dedicated fan-base, have had the audiences continuously hooked on to, be it re-runs on television or theatres, fans desperately wanting a sequel, etc.


Here is the Part 1 comprising 50 films in alphabetical order. Links to Part 2 and Part 3 collections are at the end of this slideshow.


This is the selected list from a consolidated list created by the Behindwoods Review Board and G. Dhananjayan, founder-dean of BOFTA Film Institute.


Most of these films are available on OTT platforms. So, what are you waiting for? Hit the play button NOW.
