The songs in these movies too are motivational and inspirational.

It is a superstar Rajinikanth entertainer that talks about friendship, betrayal, falling and rising up like a phoenix from the ashes and establishing oneself. It is the story of an innocent milkman whose rich best friend (under influence of his scheming father) betrays him by destroying his beloved home. How he then realises that the world is a cruel place and gets back on his feet by starting a dairy business and consecutively becoming a millionaire constitutes the rest of the story.

The 2010 comedy talks about how an irresponsible person gets motivated to succeed in life when he falls in love with a woman and her father refuses to marry her to him. Along with his best friend, he starts a tutorial centre for the 10th grade failed candidates and gathers students from all over the town of Kumbakonam to enroll in their centre. He ultimately is able to fulfil his promise of becoming the man worthy of her love, and providing money for his sister’s marriage. This movie gives a ray of hope.
Velaiilla Pattadhari 2

The second instalment of the Dhanush-starrer is about how he becomes unemployed and pulls himself back up by starting an architectural venture where he gathers all the unemployed civil engineering graduates to form a team of architects. The hope you get from the part where this small firm overthrows a big corporate company is extremely satisfying. This movie is a rollercoaster of inspiration, entertainment, comedy and drama.
