8 Times Ajith Kumar Stole The Show Like No Other

Ajith Kumar is one of the biggest movie stars acting in the Tamil Industry today. He has a huge fanbase, which ensures earth-shattering openings for all his movies. Primarily, he started his career as a romantic hero, before foraying into mainstream commercial cinema. Here we look at the 8 all-time favourite film of the versatile actor.

Viswasam

This was his latest release. Ajith excels in the role of a father and an estranged partner. His chemistry with lead actress Nayanthara is excellent and there is no doubt that no other actor can match Ajith in the salt and pepper look.

Yennai Arindhaal

This is one of the best movies of the actor so far and when Ajith joins hands with a great director like Gautam Menon then expect nothing less than a masterpiece.

Mankatha

When you have someone like Ajith Kumar in the lead, fireworks are meant to happen. And Mankatha being his 50th film, such fireworks are all over the film: gangsters run all places, guns fire, and people are killed liberally. Amidst all the chaos is Ajith Kumar leaning against a car stylishly, with a handsome grin on his face. 

Billa

Billa is a stylish and racy thriller with many edge-of-the-seat moments. The movie is undoubtedly one of the stylish movies to come out of Tamil Cinema. Ajith played two completely contrasting roles, that of a don and a small-time crook, and pulls it off with nonchalant ease. 

Kadhal Kottai

Kadhal Kottai is one of the most critically acclaimed films in the actor’s career. Kamali, played by Devayani, loses her bag in the railway station. Later, her bag is found and sent to her home, along with a letter from Surya, played by Ajith Kumar. Soon, they exchange a series of letters and fall in love. Kadhal Kottai is one of the most influential romantic dramas of this era.

Vaali

The movie was also the first breakthrough for Ajith Kumar as an actor. Ajith essayed dual roles in this critically acclaimed thriller, one being a deaf and a speechless brother with psychotic leanings, who is obsessed with his twin’s wife. The brilliance of Ajith was that without uttering a phrase, he conveyed the pessimistic emotions of his character

Citizen

Citizen is a social drama that narrates the distressing account of an entire hamlet being shattered by the greed of power-hungry government officials. For the first time in his career, Ajith Kumar appeared in 10 different get-ups, and the actor revealed it to be a daunting task and he was also inspired by various movies of Kamal Hassan. The movie has its riveting moments and was raved by critics.

Villain

Ajith Kumar plays twins in this thriller, one being a bus conductor and the other being a mentally challenged character. The latter was a challenge as it required a tint of negativity, and full of foolish grins.
