Vijay Sethupathi is now a household name. From children to men and women, this is one actor whose performances are well received by all sectors of the society. One would say he’s got the typical guy-next-door looks but he has proved his worth having surpassed the definition of a star by mesmerizing the audience with his fabulous acting. Fans are hyped to the point where whichever movie that gets released with VJS in the cast gets a massive crowd in the theaters. Need we say more?
While fan craze continues to thrive, our Vijay Sethupathi, lovingly referred to as Makkal Selvan, keeps delivering mind blowing acts and blockbuster movies. We sat in the audience and ranked his movies from the latter part of his 10-year long journey.(which was a difficult job indeed!)
We are surprised he chose this script. This movie is the typical commercial flick, with a plot containing goons, a powerful man, his daughter who falls for the hero and the hero single-handedly combating hundreds of goons. This formula is seen in many a movies when an actor attempts to stabilize himself as the commercial king or when a novice actor strives to be recognized but this is definitely not what Sethupathi needs to do, to impress his audience. Nevertheless, VJS magic worked, we went and watched!
Rekka is a movie by Rathina Shiva starring Lakshmi Menon, Sija Rose and Sathish along with Sethupathi. Movie revolves around Shiva who gets into a mess with a powerful man in his locality only to find himself neck deep in troubles involving his family and love life. Focusing on music,Kanna kaatu podhum and kannamma are two hits we can never forget.
What we loved : beautiful love story of “Mala akka” and “Selvam” and its happily-ever-after
What we couldn’t: heroine’s overacting!
This is where VJS gets to romance two heroines, both equally charming, namely Thamanna and Aishwarya Rajesh. Infact the plot is appealing since it’s about the journey of a man from being the committed settled doctor to a depressed lonely alcoholic. Different eras of his life were beautifully depicted yet this movie failed to reach the audience as much as other movies of VJS did. Thamanna being cast in a less-glam responsible-type role was a huge plus-point. Dharmadurai was directed by Seenu Ramasamy and its music was composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
What we loved : chemistry between Aiswarya and Vijay
What we couldn’t: Vijay’s moustache!
Kavan is the story of a courageous tv reporter whose prime concern is to uncover injustice. This was quite an unfamiliar role for Sethupathi to fit in, but he nailed it! Throughout the movie, which was directed by K.V Anand, he outshone rest of the cast, and supplied us, the viewers, with an Adrenaline rush. But the character was not tailor-made to Sethupathi though his versatility in adapting to the character worked very well to the extent we embraced the movie even with ambiguity. Madonna Sebastian’s contribution to the movie is noteworthy as unlike other heroines you actually feel the weight of movie being effectively supported by her.
What we loved : Vijay’s honesty both in reel and real
What we couldn’t: villain’s accent!
07. ORANGE MITTAI
This movie made us gape in amazement. Sethupathi followed the footsteps of Kamal Hassan and surprised us with his old-man makeover. Both produced and written by actor himself, Orange Mittai (meaning Orange Toffee) is about an elderly man,neglected by his son and thus living alone, whose constant craving for attention puts some youth in trouble. Viewers are raced through a range of emotions by one old man, who you begin to hate at times but love at the end. This was a novel concept that won critical acclaim and inspired filmmakers to take up less-discussed subjects. Sethupathi was nominated for the best actor in SIIMA awards for the magnificent portrayal of an aged man in this movie.
What we loved : the fantastic mimicry he pulled for the song “Straight ah poyee” both written and sung by himself!
What we couldn’t: some scenes were a little over-stretched.
06. NAANUM ROWDY DHAAN
Nayanthara, loved by numerous kollywood fans, shared screen space with Sethupathi in this youthful, romantic comedy which became a highly rated entertainer in 2015. Directed by the multi-talented Vignesh Shivan, the plot revolves around a young man who impersonates a gangster and a young girl with a hearing disability whose parents were killed by a gangster. Nayanthara could secure a couple of awards for the marvelous act of her while VJS won hearts of many due to his extremely sweet ways of taking care of Kadambari(Nayanthara’s role).
What we loved : when VJS asks Nayanthara “Kaadhu ma, are you okay baby?”
What we couldn’t: little monotonous climax with repetitive scenes
05. SOODHU KAVVUM
Quite similar to Orange mittai, VJS is seen sporting the looks of a middle aged man who lives with a girl from his hallucinations and does kidnapping for a living. With a considerable number of talented underrated actors, this movie proves to be highly entertaining and different in its entirety from the rest of movies. There is no glamour or family drama in this masterpiece yet it leaves you highly satisfied with the experience. Directed by Nalan Kumaraswamy, this is one movie of VJS you should not miss.
What we loved : Five rules of “kednaping” and the beautiful Shalu!
What we couldn’t: Bramma the ruthless police officer!
We thought the moustache in Dharmadurai made Sethupathi look older but in this movie, he rocks the family-man with moustache look! What more, he is seen playing the police officer, battling against injustice, which is a delightful sight to both die-hard Sethupathi fans and police movie fans. Nivas K. Prasanna’s music fuels the vibe. Written and directed by S. U Arun Kumar, Sethupathi defined family-drama by becoming heavily appealing to all parts of the audience. We were flooded with enthusiasm, we cried and smiled with Sethupathi and family. This is a must-watch and a good place to start a movie marathon.
What we loved : the sizzling chemistry between Remya Nambeesan and Sethupathi that reminded us of “Pizza” days
What we couldn’t: Vaathiyar’s cold blooded daughter!
Iraivi is the brainchild of young filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj and remains to be his magnum opus. How could he successfully design every detail of the movie to astonishingly support the essence of the movie we know not but we know this movie brought the best in all actors out. Sethupathi was a part of a bigger cast including Bobby Simha, S.J Surya, Anjali, Kamlinee Mukherjee and Pooja Devapriya. The movie deals with feminism at large, with a twist since key persona in it are men. Every scene has a profound impact on the theme and Iraivi became the bliss of critics.
What we loved : How perfectly the stories intertwined!
What we couldn’t: The song visualization in the kovil!
02. KADHALUM KADANDHU POGHUM
Also known as Ka Ka Po, this movie is a landmark in Vijay Sethupathi’s filmography. Written and directed by Nalan Kumarsamy, Ka Ka Po casts Madonna Sebastian in a pivotal role along with Sethupathi. Most significant feature of the movie is that the lead actors are not lovers at any point, yet they influence lives of each other more than lovers would have done. The plot is intense resulting in a lot of afterthoughts and we absolutely adored it!
What we loved : Sethupathi’s entertaining “interview” scene
What we couldn’t: bar fights!
01. VIKRAM VEDHA
The ultimate thriller Vikram Vedha undoubtedly secures no 1 rank. We enjoyed every bit of the movie and felt the fiery on-screen chemistry Sethupathi shared with Madhavan rather strongly. Starring Kathir, Varaluxmi and Shraddha alongside the power-duo, written and directed by Pushkar and Gayathri, Vikram Vedha recieved positive comments from both critics and the audience. It was a huge deviation from the police-gangster movies we have watched before, when considering creativity,direction and action, although plot bears similarities. We loved the line up of scenes that made us burn with curiosity!
What we loved : when Madhavan and Sethupathi, enemies by natures, fought side-by-side
What we couldn’t: Someone’s death!
Vijay Sethupathi keeps getting better with time setting very high standards to our movie expectations.
At 39, He rules the K town. We sit back and enjoy!

#TopLists | TOP 5 HA JI WON DRAMAS!
Currently airing drama, Hospital Ship tells the story of a group of doctors aboard a ship who treats patients living on islands. The female lead, Song Eun Jae, a surgeon, is played by Ha Ji Won, in her first role as a doctor. With a career spanning over a decade, Ha Ji Won has attempted various genres from historical dramas to romantic comedies. In celebration of her first drama in two years hitting high ratings, let’s take a look back at five of her best dramas.
DAMO: THE LEGENDARY POLICE WOMAN (2003)
One of Ha’s earlier dramas, this historical drama tells the story of a group of police women (damo) during the Joseon dynasty. Ha Ji Won plays the lead female character of Chae Ok, a damo, who dreams of not being restricted by society’s standards for women and those of the lower social classes. The drama also stars Lee Seo Jin as Yun Hwang Bo and Kim Min Jun as Kang Seong Baek. Ha was awarded the Top Excellence Award, Actress at the 2004 SBS Drama Awards for her portrayal in the drama.
WHAT HAPPENED IN BALI (2004)
This love story revolves around four people: Lee Soo Jung, Jae Min, Kang In Wook and Young Joo. Soo Jung is a travel guide in Bali and the other three come to Bali on a vacation. So enfolds a tragic story of love, betrayal and sadness. The drama earned high ratings during its run and starred popular heartthrobs Jo In Sung and So Ji Sub as well as Park Ye Jin. It’s now considered one of the best Korean melodramas and propelled its stars to international fame.
SECRET GARDEN (2010)
A must-watch for Korean drama beginners, this romantic comedy starred Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won. Gil Ra Im, a stuntwoman meets Kim Joo Wan, a businessman who becomes infatuated by her. They start a relationship which is greatly affected by their different social classes. The drama also stars Yoon Sang Hyun as Oska and Kim Sa Rang as Yoon Seul, another pair of distraught lovers. The drama has been a part of Korean popular culture ever since it aired and is a great, laugh-out-loud comedy that will make you grin and also cry a little.
THE KING 2 HEARTS (2012)
Lee Jae Ha, played by Lee Seung Gi, is a crown prince in a fictitious modern South Korea where a monarchy exists while Kim Hang Ah, played by Ha Ji Won, is a North Korean Special Forces officer. Initially hating each other, the two are forced together for the sake of friendly relations between their two countries. The drama mixes in a little bit of political turmoil making things even more complicated. A fantastic drama with two excellent lead actors that is sure to delight fans of romance dramas.
EMPRESS KI (2013-2014)
The drama is based on the life of historical figure Empress Ki, an empress of the Yuan Dynasty and stars Ha Ji Won in the titular role. The drama excellent portrays the turbulent political landscape of the period and the empress’s complicated relationships with Wang Yoo, the king of Goryeo, played by Joo Jin Mo and Ta Hwan, the emperor of the Yuan dynasty, played by Ji Chang Wook. The drama achieved incredibly high ratings during its run and is hailed as one the most beautiful sageuks (historical dramas) in recent years.
SRK’S CHEMISTRY WITH 12 OF HIS LEADING LADIES RANKED!
Synonymous with romance and with an envious fan following from around the world, it is without a doubt that Shah Rukh Khan is a global superstar and the heartthrob of countless men and women. His charm, wit, smile, the way he extends his arms to call his beloved, his walk, talk – basically everything has every dil going pagal. The way in which he looks at his heroine is what clicks with his audience.
Today, as our favourite Raj and Rahul turns another year old, we at FilmGeekly have analyzed his chemistry with 12 of his leading ladies. Take a look!
1. Shah Rukh Khan – Kajol (or should we say SRKajol?)
This pairing gets our highest rating for obvious reasons. We are more than thankful to Abbas-Mustan for casting them opposite each other in Baazigar (1993) because they are not only India’s most loved onscreen couple, they are one of the most adored pairings in the history of cinema. Their chemistry is to die for and every time they come on screen, we really think they have a janam janam ka bandhan. SRK himself has said that he would have not been such a big superstar if Kajol had not starred in their films together. The songs Tujhe Dekha To from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), Suraj Hua Maddham from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) and Janam Janam from Dilwale (2015) are proof of their passion. Needless to say why we, as children, thought they were married in real life too.
2. Shah Rukh Khan – Rani Mukerji
They were sweet in Chalte Chalte (2003) and daring in Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006). SRK has looked great opposite Rani Mukerji and together have come across as a convincing pair. Paheli (2005) saw them in endearing roles and they have complemented each other well. Watch them in songs like Tauba Tumhare from Chalte Chalte and Mitwa from Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna to see the sparks fly.
3. Shah Rukh Khan – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
From their unconventional casting as twins Max and Shirley in Mansoor Khan’s Josh (2002) to playing Devdas and Paro in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s tragedy, Devdas (2002), they showed us that they could work it both ways – as siblings and as lovers. They made an adorable pair in Mohabbatein (2000) too and their romance to the song Humko Humise Chura Lo is still loved by many. Fans were thrilled when they saw them, even for a short time in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016), as it reunited them after a gap of 14 years.
4. Shah Rukh Khan – Juhi Chawla
Juhi Chawla is one actress with whom SRK shares superb comic timing with. Their pairing is completely adorable and this is very evident in films like Yes Boss (1997) and Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani (2000). Their goofy nature is visible in Duplicate (1998) and their scorching chemistry in the song Tu Mere Saamne from the thriller Darr (1993), is enough proof of their comfort level.
5. Shah Rukh Khan – Preity Zinta
Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003) and Veer-Zaara (2004) saw SRK portraying Aman Mathur and Veer Pratap Singh, two characters who show immense sacrifice in the awakening of love. Kal Ho Naa Ho made us weep and how thanks to Aman’s untimely death. SRK’s chemistry with Preity Zinta dates back to Dil Se.. (1998), most notably in the song Jiya Jale. Watch the title track of Kal Ho Naa Ho and Tere Liye from Veer-Zaara for evidence of their onscreen love.
6. Shah Rukh Khan – Madhuri Dixit-Nene
After a couple of flops, the duo struck gold with Yash Chopra’s musical hit Dil To Pagal Hai (1997). How can we forget SRK’s Rahul whispering ‘Aur paas, aur paas’ to Madhuri’s Pooja? SRK has mentioned that he has much respect for the actress. Their on screen chemistry is apparent in the songs Are Re Are and Dholna from Dil To Pagal Hai and the title song from Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam (2002).
7. Shah Rukh Khan – Manisha Koirala
They have starred in two films together – Guddu (1995) and Dil Se.. (1998). While the former was a critical and commercial flop, the latter became a cult classic. Despite being a commercial flop, Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se.. is the only film of theirs which is worth a watch, which brings to light their raw energy, especially in the song Satrangi Re. Watch the song to see the enthralling magic.
8. Shah Rukh Khan – Sushmita Sen
How can one forget Ms. Chandni and her fancy sarees? SRK and Sushmita Sen’s ‘chemistry’ (pun intended) was the stuff of dreams especially in Main Hoon Na (2004). They did star opposite each other in Dulha Mil Gaya (2010) but the film was not a success. Tumhe Jo Maine Dekha, Tumse Milke Dil Ka and Gori Gori and several scenes from Main Hoon Na allowed the pair to set the screen on fire.
9. Shah Rukh Khan – Priyanka Chopra
A few pairs are beautiful, some are cute and then there’s SRK and PC. The duo’s appeal was clear as Don and Roma, more so in Don 2 (2012) than Don (2006). Theirs was one of the hottest jodis to be introduced in the 2000s and we wait for Don 3 with baited breath. Revisit their onscreen camaraderie in Don 2, especially in the song Dushman Mera.
10. Shah Rukh Khan – Kareena Kapoor Khan
Their memorable pairing as Emperor Asoka alias Pawan and Kaurwaki in the period film Asoka (2000) had us awed. Their onscreen presence was seen differently not long after, in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) when they essayed the roles of brother-in-law and sister-in-law. They also starred opposite each other in the sci-fi film Ra.One (2011) and made everyone dance to the hip and happening Chammak Challo. The song Roshni Se from Asoka is testimony to their visual appeal as a pair.
11. Shah Rukh Khan – Deepika Padukone
They made hearts go aww with their pairing as Om Prakash Makhija and Shantipriya and as Om Kapoor and Sandhya in Om Shanti Om (2007). Their chemistry was further seen in Chennai Express (2013) and Happy New Year (2014). Their dimpled affection is evident in the songs Main Agar Kahoon from Om Shanti Om, Titli from Chennai Express and Manwa Laage from Happy New Year.
12. Shah Rukh Khan – Anushka Sharma
Their quirky but innocent love affair in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) warmed our hearts and made us wish that they had ended up together in Yash Chopra’s swan song, Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012). Anushka Sharma’s effervescence was present in all 3 films that she starred with SRK and their comfort level was seen in their most recent venture, Jab Harry Met Sejal (2017). Watch Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai and Dance Pe Chance from Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Jiya Re from Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Radha from Jab Harry Met Sejal for their onscreen camaraderie.
