Guru Somasundaram

Actor Guru Somasundaram has been the talk of the town since the release of Minnal Murali. When director Basil Joseph crafted an extraordinary Mollywood superhero in Tovino Thomas, he made sure to create a super villain who is certainly equal to the former.

What happened after the release was something even the team wouldn’t have expected. The super villain character Shibu (Somasundaram) instantly took the audience in awe, with his amazing character arc and intense performance. The actor has been widely appreciated for perfecting the role to a higher level as well. 

After the success of the actor, everyone started tracing back to see what he has done in the past. The results were interesting as there were many amazing roles he aced, including the 2013 Malayalam anthology 5 Sundarikal. Predominantly working in Tamil cinema, Somasundaram has also proven himself to be a show-stealer in movies like Joker, Aaranya Kaandam and the latest Suriya-starrer Jai Bhim

Here is a list of Guru Somasundaram movies you would not want to miss:

5 Sundarikal
Venturing into Malayalam cinema, Somasundaram took part in this anthology. In Shyju Khalid’s sequence titled Sethulakshmi, the actor appears as a crooked photographer, who made the audience despise him for his inhumane actions. The role was undoubtedly perfected by the versatile actor, alongside Anikha and Chethan Jayalal.

Later in 2013, Somasundaram was seen in a strong character role in Suseenthiran’s Pandiya Naadu. The movie features Vishal and Lakshmi Menon in the lead roles, in which Somasundaram appears as Vishal’s brother. The movie is all about the hero avenging his brother’s death, after he was killed by gangsters.

Helmed by Karthik Subbaraj, the Tamil crime comedy revolves around a budding director who researches about a gangster for his film. Somasundaram was noted for his performance as an acting coach in the movie. He was seen training actor Bobby Simha in the movie, which appeared to be more realistic as he had already trained him in real life for theatre performances.

The Tamil language political satire stars Somasundaram and Ramya Pandian, while it is directed by Raju Murugan. The story is all about Mannar Mannan (Somasundaram), who declares himself to be the President of India. The guy who is seen as a joker by others, draws lines of pure satire against contemporary politics through various protests he conducts.
Jai Bhim
9.4OTTplay Rating
The Suirya-starrer legal drama is not a new name to the audience as it was widely acclaimed as well as controversial after its recent OTT release. Somasundaram is seen as PP Chellapandiyan , the brutal public prosecutor in the movie. Besides the movie being a hit, the performances of actors were also highly appreciated.
