Kollywood 2013 Half Year Report - Top Tamil Films So Far

Kollywood 2013 Half Year Report - Top Tamil Films So Far

Let's take a look at the impressive performers from Kollywood this year so far

1. Vishwaroopam

A Flurry of controversies, sympathy wave + a expensive mega hyped project made the film took an outstanding opening [even though a delayed release in Tamil Nadu]. The film had a very good run throughout the country. People from TN flocked to theaters in Kerala t watch the film due to the ban in the home state. 


2. Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaya

Another film that banked entirely upon Santhanam, but the antics of Power Star were also liked by the audience ensuring it a very good run. 

Super Hit

3. Soothu Kavvum

 After Pizza & Naduvile Koncham.... another Vijay Sethubathy magic. Unique theme nice presentation, good comedy & terrific WOM helped the film.

Super Hit 

4. Theeya Vela Seiyyanam Kumaru

A UTV Rom-Com that hit the bull's eye @ Box Office. Sundar C's packaging made this average movie a time pass entertainer & a succes. Still running to above average crowd


5. Ethir Neechal

Super hit music, good first half and rip-roaring comedy helped the movie become a box office success.


6. Kutti Puli

Panned by every single critic out there the movie showed who the reall boss is, the paisa payin audien, rather than those who watch it for free without knowing audience pulse. The mass audience received the film well making it a hit. It has tremendous run in B,C class dominated areas.


7. Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga

Good Marketing helped the film a great deal. An average product earned money for the producers.

 Above Average

8. Neram

A movie which was non-existant for public till 'pistah' song was released online. The hype that song created plus good marketing helped the film get a good run. The Malayalam version in fact is much bigger hit than the Tamil version

Above Average

9. Udhayam NH4

One of the best thrillers to come from Kollywood in years. Fast paced narration and intelligent scripting found fans among city based audience. 

Above Average 

10. Chennaiyil Oru Naal

Remake of Malayalam hit 'Traffic' the film was a moderate success.

Above Average 

Biggest Dud - Alex Pandian 

Poor opening, panned by critics, disastrous theater run, even the powerful distributor couldn't save the movie from leaving theaters after first week

Most of the biggies of the year, Singam 2, Thalaivaa, Thala 53, Kochadiyaan, Pizza 2 etc,  are yet to come, so excepting a lot of changes in the final year ender list. Also expecting lot of surprise hits
