Top Tamil Movies of 2021

Karnan (TAMIL)
Dhanush , Lal , Rajisha Vijayan Yogi Babu
Director: Mari Selvaraj

Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Karnan is a powerful action drama about the collective uprising of an oppressed community against the upper class. Karnan is littered with Theni Eswar's striking imagery, plus Mari Selvaraj's provocative war cry moments. In Dhanush, it also has just the kind of actor who could pull off a mass titular character with artful touches. Read Review

Sarpatta Parambarai (TAMIL)
Arya , Dushara , Pasupathy Kalaiyarasan
Director: Pa Ranjith
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Most boxing movies are generic, but Pa. Ranjith's Sarpatta Parambarai seldom seems like one. It is as much a film about cast and rivalries between boxing clans in old Madras as it is about the game of boxing. Read Review
Maanaadu (TAMIL)
Silambarasan , Kalyani Priyadarshan , S. A. Chandrasekhar S. J. Surya
Director: Venkat Prabhu
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Maanaadu is a heady, high-concept action thriller. Writer-director Venkat Prabhu gets the concept of time loop down to a science. So, even if you have no idea about how time loop works, the movie will make you think and entertain you a lot. Read Review
Vaazhl (TAMIL)
Pradeep Anthony , T J Bhanu , Diva Dhawan Aahrav
Director: Arun Prabu Purushothaman
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Wacky and inventive, Arun Prabu Purushothaman's Vaazhl is about characters who choose to live in a certain way while accepting the consequences that accompany their choices. It is a road movie that metaphorizes life as a long journey where characters and experiences have life-altering effects. Not all of it works, but the portions that do work like magic. Read Review
Master (TAMIL)
Vijay , Vijay Sethupathi , Malavika Mohanan Shanthanu Bhagyaraj
Director: Lokesh Kanagaraj
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Lokesh Kanagaraj humanizes Vijay's character in Master. Vijay does not play a messiah in the film. That he has some personal demons make the character interesting. And, that Kanagaraj is not afraid of deviating slightly from commercial film formulas make Master worth watching, despite its flaws. Read Review

Maara (TAMIL)
R. Madhavan , Shraddha Srinath , Sshivada Minon
Director: Dhilip Kumar
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
The best thing about the Tamil adaptation of Martin Prakkat's Charlie is that it makes us want to revisit the Malayalam film, like all good remakes do. It may be familiar material for the viewers of the original, but is different in its own regards. Read Review
Mandela (TAMIL)
Yogi Babu , Sangili Murugan , Sheela Rajkumar Kanna Ravi
Director: Madonne Ashwin
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Mandela has an interesting premise that talks about vote-bank politics and vote canvassing all while staying within the limits of a lighthearted, satirical entertainer. The movie is a tad repetitive, but it is held together beautifully by strong performances, starting with Yogi Babu as the titular character. Read Review

Netrikann (TAMIL)
Nayanthara , Ajmal Ameer , Manikandan Saran Shakthi
Director: Milind Rau
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Netrikann on Disney+ Hotstar is about a blind CBI officer who 'witnesses' a serial killer's actions and must help solve a case. Adapted from the Korean film entitled 'Blind', it has a credible lead turn from Nayanthara, many generic elements, believability, and even some novelty. Read Review

Jagame Thandhiram (TAMIL)
Dhanush , Aishwarya Lekshmi , Kalaiyarasan Joju George
Director: Karthik Subbaraj
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Jagame Thandhiram is a gangster drama addressing more serious themes like the refugee crisis with gunmen's intelligence. It suggests that a gangster's worldview is so limited that his reading of issues like the refugee crisis is also limited. So, its gun-for-gun approach to storytelling is justifiable, even as director Karthik Subbaraj's flourishes have an overbearing effect on the proceedings. Read Review
Teddy (TAMIL)
Arya , Sayyeshaa Saigal , Sakshi Agarwal Karunakaran
Director: Shakti Soundar Rajan
Trailer |
Critic Rating:
User Rating:
Songs in several inappropriate places act as speed bumps in the breezy, mindless and fun Teddy. Anyhow, for many of us who are still young at heart, the movie's adult-toy bonding alone may be enough to look past those kinds of issues. Read Review
