Kollywood Tamil heroines : 2005
When a new year begins, it is time to look back at the winners. Asin
emerged as the top favourite after her hit film "Ghajini".
The top five actresses are:
Asin: As the fun loving naughty girl with a heart of gold, Asin's
performance was superb in "Ghajini" and she occupies the number one
Trisha: Trisha is concentrating more on Telugu films these days. Yet
her "Thirupachi" with Vijay was a hit.
Nayanthara: She entered Tamil filmdom with Sarath Kumar's Ayya and her
second film was with superstar Rajnikant in "Chandramukhi". Now she
is known as the glamour queen of Tamil and Telugu cinema and is one of the
busiest actresses in southern India.
Yuvan Shankar Raja Vs Vidyasagar :
Yuvan Shankar Raja's music for "Pudupettai" is simply outstanding
and it is just a matter of time before it goes to the top spot again. For the
time being, the Pongal trophy is Vidyasagar's.
The top five Tamil songs are:
"Paramasivan" - Music director: Vidyasagar. Nothing
exceptional but the audio is doing good business, especially with Rajnikanth
releasing the album.
"Aathi" - Music director: Vidyasagar. Another so-so album
from Vidyasagar with the typical Kuthu songs, a must for a Vijay film.
"Pudupettai" - Music director: Yuvan Shankar Raja; This album
can be termed as one of the best from Yuvan. So far, the Yuvan-Selva
combination has done wonders, and this time too it has not failed.
"Kalvanin Kadhali" - Music director: Yuvan Shankar
Raja; Not as good as "Pudupettai" but Yuvan has maintained his
standard. The song "Eno kangal" sung by Yuvan himself and Sadhana
Sargam is the pick of the album.
Kollywood Heroes : 2005
The list of top Tamil heroes of 2005 has been mostly the same as the year
before, except for newcomer Arya whose "Arindum Ariyamalum" has made
him a hot favourite with audiences.
The top five actors are:
Vikram ("Anniyan"): Though Vikram had only two
releases in 2005, it was still a fruitful year for the National Award winning
actor. "Chandramukhi", starring Rajnikant, might have fared better
at box office but as far as the top slot is concerned, it is Vikram who tops
Surya ("Ghajini"): With the super hit "Ghajini",
Surya has reached Vikram's and Vijay's level. He was amazing in the film, and
it is definitely a landmark film for him.
Vijay ("Sivakasi" and "Thirupachi"): Vijay
maintained his victorious run as all his films of 2005 were super hits, unlike
many other heroes.

There will be a sure Diwali box office competition between Vijays' Sivakasi
and Vikram's Majaa. But the interesting point is, Asin plays the heroine role
in both the films.
beats 'Ah...Aah' at box office
Silambarasan's avatar as a
full-fledged action hero has gone down well with the audience with his new
film "Thottijaya" receiving a great opening at the box office.
Though S.J. Suryah's "Aa..Aah" was expected to do better, "Thottijaya"
has won over.
The top five Tamil films at the box office are:
1. "Thottijaya" (Director - Dorai): Dorai's last film was a
realistic offbeat film called "Mugavari" starring Ajit and Jyothika.
But the film didn't do very well commercially. His full-length action film,
"Thottijaya", however, is a winner. For actor Silambarasan, this is
the second hit after "Manmadan".
2. "Ah..Aah" (Director - S.J. Suryah): In a nutshell, the film is
about a famished-looking Suryah romancing with a hot Simran look-alike, Nila.
It is highly doubtful whether the film will have the same magic as
"New". Nevertheless, it had a decent opening.
has no rivals in Tamil music market
A.R. Rahman's new album "Ah..Aah" for S.J. Suryah continues to rule
the charts even though the film is not a big hit.
The top five Tamil music albums are:
1. "Ah..Aah" (A.R. Rahman): The film is not a big hit, but the song
sung by Rahman himself, "Anbe Aaruyire", has been topping the charts
for the last several weeks.
2. "Ghajini" (Harris Jayaraj): The release of the film is getting
delayed, but Harris Jayaraj's album is a hit and second only to Rahman's. The
most popular song is "Oru Maalai" by Karthik.
Political Hero from Kollywood :
Vijayakanth formally launched his political party on 14th September, and named
it as Desiya Murpookku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) (National Progressive Dravida
Party) at the party conference held at Madurai. After Thiru. C.N.Anna Durai,
Thiru. M.G.Ramachandran, Thiru.M.Karunanidhi and Ms.J.Jayalalithaa ,
Vijayakanth entered into politics. Let us see whether he will be a successful
politician or just going to follow the paths of Thiru.Bhagiyaraj, Thiru.Sivaji
Ganesan and Thiru. Vijay.T.Rajendar.
