Top Tamil Heroes

December 27, 2006
Year 2006 saw some good performances in Tamil but they were definitely not spectacular. One good thing about Tamil cinema is that the new generation heroes like Bharath, Arya, Jeeva, Vishal, etc are making their presence felt in a big way.

Kamal Haasan

Let us now talk about someone who has been acting from the age of 6 and has four national awards to his credit; a true genius. Yes, he is Padmashri Kamal Haasan. Without any doubt, we can say he is the numero uno of 2006. Gowtham Menon's Vettayadu Vilayadu, his release after a year that was Mumbai Express -- is the biggest hit of 2006. As Raghavan, a middle aged police officer, Kamal has given a brilliant performance; subtle, understated and in the way only he can. But is this his best performance? No way. Is this on par with his own performances in Nayakan or 16 Vayathinile or Sagara Sangamam? No way. But it is a brilliant portrayal and the best in 2006.

What are the events that shaped 2006? Tell us!
