Probably one of the evergreen movies from Vijay, the film played an important role in establishing the actor as a lover boy on screen. Vijay and Shalini fall in love with each other but face the wrath of their families as they don’t belong to the same religion. The film was a massive hit giving Vijay a significant push in his career.

2. Kushi

Helmed by SJ Suryah, this one is a classic. A college love story between two strong headed individuals, the movie is a pleasure to watch even today, several years after release. An affable Vijay paired against the beautiful Jyothika, Kushi is a movie for all seasons.

3. Ghilli

Ghilli is the Tamil remake of the Telugu super hit Okkudu starring Mahesh Babu. Ghilli had Vijay essaying the role of a Kabbadi player. The film kicked off a long list of hits for Vijay and is also what we call the perfect commercial film. Vijay’s impeccable sense of humour is an icing on the cake.

4. Thuppaki

After a few flops, Velayudham and Nanban sort of revived Vijay’s hold on the box office. But it was Thuppaki that brought the star back on track. In a new stylish avatar, AR Murgadoss’ Vijay was perfect. And the actor put the avatar to good use too in the action-thriller.

5. Kaththi

Another from AR Murgadoss and Vijay, this one has the actor in dual roles. Vijay plays the prim and proper Kathiresan and the happy-go-lucky Jeevanandam in the movie. A movie with a powerful social sub context, it went on to rake in the moolah across centres.
