Comedy 'Malaikottai' tops Tamil filmsOct 1, 2007 Aparna Nath
The top five Tamil films are:
1. "Malaikottai" - Director: Bhoopathy Pandian. Though the film got a decent opening and tops this list for now, almost all critics have panned it. Vishal falls flat in comedy scenes. Priya Mani, after her excellent performance in "Paruthiveeran", is just a glamour doll here.
2. "Marudumalai" - Director: Suraj. "Marudumalai" is another masala film that is doing good business at the box office. Unlike actor Vishal, action king Arjun is good at comedy.
3. "Sathum Podathey" - Director: Vasanth. This thriller starring Prithviraj and Padmapriya in the lead is doing well in the cities.
4. "Sivaji : The Boss" - Director: Shankar. The Rajnikant-starrer has crossed the 100-day mark and now filmmakers are just waiting for it to cross the next milestone.
5. "Ammuvagia Naan" - Director: Padma Magan. This film on the life of a sex worker has been made sensitively and without vulgarity.
