Best 5 Tamil films to stream on Raj TV Digital and OTTPlay Premium

Thillu Mullu

Director: K Balachander

Cast: Rajinikanth, Madhavi, Thengai Srinivasan, Nagesh, Poornam Viswanathan


The 1981-released iconic comedy film, which is an official remake of the Bollywood blockbuster Gol Maal (1979), successfully broke Rajinikanth’s angry young man image in Tamil cinema. The superstar is at his humourous best in the K Balachander directorial, which is a must-watch film if you just want to see Rajinikanth – the actor.


Director: Santhana Bharathi

Cast: Kamal Haasan, Sukanya, SN Lakshmi, Tulasi

The Santhana Bharathi directorial, which was released in 1994, featured Kamal Haasan in the role of Krishna Swamy, a widower who was wrongfully convicted for a financial crime. Mahanadhi, which is well-known for its gut-wrenching portrayal of human emotions, emerged as a massive critical success and earned many awards and accolades, including the National Film Awards.


Director: Shankar

Cast: Arjun Sarja, Madhubala, Goundamani, Subhashri, Manorama

The action heist film, which was released in 1993, marked the first collaboration of Arjun Sarja and hitmaker Shankar. The movie depicts the story of protagonist Kicha and his friend Mani, who become thieves after a massive tragedy struck the former’s life during his school days. Gentleman emerged as a massive blockbuster and remains a thoroughly entertaining film.


Director: Gautham Vasudev Menon

Cast: R Madhavan, Reema Sen, Nagesh, Vivek, Abbas

Gautham Vasudev Menon, the renowned filmmaker made his directorial debut in 2001 with the romantic drama Minnale. The movie, which features R Madhavan and Reema Sen in the lead roles remains an absolute favourite to audiences, thanks to the excellent making, and evergreen music composed by Harris Jayaraj. However, the glorification of stalking in the film still looks very problematic.

Kadhal Kottai

Director: Agathiyan

Cast: Ajith Kumar, Devayani, Thalaivasal Vijay, Heera

Ajith Kumar, who began his acting career as a romantic hero, starred in the 1996-released love story Kadhal Kottai, along with Devayani. The Agathiyan directorial narrates the story of a young woman named Kamali and an orphan man named Suriya who fall in love through letters, without meeting each other. The film emerged as a massive commercial success and earned multiple honours at the National Film Awards.
