A few days ago, my favourite actor Vijay Sethupathi (VJS) alias Makkal Selvan celebrated his 41st birthday. With humble origins as a background artist, he has grown to become one of the most known actors in the Tamil film industry. Being a big fan of his spectacular work, I feel like watching his movies again and again. Now, that’s exactly I get to do with Vijay Sethupathi’s best tamil movies online on ZEE5.
While we are talking about Vijay Sethupathi, let me share some of his best movies that are currently streaming on ZEE5, in no particular order.
1) Vikram Vedha (2017)
The film features R. Madhavan, Vijay Sethupathi, Shraddha Srinath, Kathir and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar in the lead roles. Directed by Pushkar–Gayathri, the movie sees Vijay Sethupathi take on the role of a gangster Vedha who takes Madhavan’s Vikram through various riddles and stories, uncovering a darker side to Chennai’s crime world. Vijay’s presence in Vikram Vedha is just as powerful as Madhavan’s. The movie is often regarded as a modern day classic.
2) Soodhu Kavvum (2013)
Featuring another masterpiece performance by Vijay Sethupathi, the movie was directed by Nalan Kumarasamy. Apart from VJS, Bobby Simha, Ashok Selvan, Ramesh Thilak, Karunakaran, Sanchita Shetty & M.S. Baskar are featured in the movie. On its release, critics claimed it as unarguably the funniest film of the year. A powerful satire on money and politics, Soodhu Kavvum is a great addition to the list of Tamil cinema’s best crime comedies.
3) Kavan (2017)
Starring Vijay Sethupathi and Madonna Sebastian in the lead, Kavan features T. Rajendar, Vikranth, Pandiarajan, Akashdeep Saighal, Bose Venkat, and Jagan in supporting roles. Directed by K.V. Anand, the movie sheds lights on the nexus between corrupt politicians and few manipulative news channels, both of whom would do anything to stay in the top. Thanks to a pacy script and Vijay’s powerful presence, Kavan is a great commercial movie with some food for thought.
4) Rummy (2014)
Features Inigo Prabhakaran, Gayathrie, Vijay Sethupathi and Aishwarya Rajesh in the lead roles, Rummy is a simplistic period language drama that touches your heart. Directed by Debutant Balakrishnan, Rummy is often regarded as one of Vijay Sethupathi’s underrated films that people must watch.
5) Junga (2018)
Written and directed by Gokul, the movie follows Junga (Vijay Sethupathi) a bus conductor belonging to a family of former dons, who wishes to reclaim his ancestral property. Through a series of comedic mishaps, Junga and Yo-Yo (Yogi Babu) try hilarious measures to get back their property. Vijay Sethupathi and Yogi Babu’s comic performances received incredible praise from the audience.
