Singam series

singam tamil action film on cop

Singam has become a popular franchise. Thanks to director Hari and Suriya, for giving the audience engaging police action dramas. While the first film is more of a drama, the second and third in the installments have a racy screenplay and powerful villains, and the chase sequences keep everyone hooked onto the seats.


Bheema tamil action film starring vikram

Bheema wasn’t a big hit as expected when it was released, the climax was a bit of let down for Vikram fans but as usual, Vikram gave everything for this gangster drama by director Lingusamy. His physique and action sequences were noteworthy enough, so there was a whole song ‘Oru Mugamo’ with popping action scenes.


Vishwaroopam best tamil action cinema

The Afghan-America spy thriller is not new for only Tamil cinema but for the whole Indian territory. Kamal Hassan plays a RAW agent disguised as a Kathak dancer. The transformation scene where he reveals his true identity is one hell of an action sequence combined with Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s eclectic soundtrack. Let’s hope the sequel releases soon. Visvharoopam considered as one of the Best Tamil Movies.


Polladhavan best tamil action movies

Vetrimaaran’s directorial debut is a riveting film about a commoner and the turbulence he faces when he crossed path with a gangster over his lost bike. Pollathavan is an action thriller which takes its time to grow but once the dispute starts, it takes the audience by surprise especially the last action sequence between Dhanush and Daniel Balaji.


Maatraan tamil action film

V. Anand’s second outing with Suriya is more of an action thriller than a film about conjoined twins. The pre-interval stunt sequence in a theme park when the twins are chased by goons is one of the well-choreographed sequences in Tamil cinema without any goof ups. The second half also puts Suriya with tough action sequences with the Russian cops.
