Sivakarthikeyan's 2023's favourite Tamil movies — where to stream them

Tamil star Sivakarthikeyan is quite in awe of the directors who made their debut in 2023. He has expressed a keen interest in working with new talents, who can help him to redefine his onscreen image. "I am in talks with all of them. However, I cannot confirm which project will materialize at this moment," said Sivakarthikeyan.

Sivakarthikeyan has listed his favourite movies of 2023 and all of them are helmed by newcomers. He particularly heaped praises on the period drama Yaathisai as he seems to believe that it didn't get its due in terms of commercial and critical recognition.

"Yaathisai was very good. It's an excellent story and it was executed so well on such a small budget. If the director had a budget of Rs 50 crore, he would have created Tamil cinema's own Baahubali. Because that story has all the elements required for a commercial movie," Sivakarthikeyan told Cinema Vikatan.

Here is a list of Sivakarthikeyan's favourite films of 2023:



Written and directed by Dharani Rasendran, Yaathisai is set against the backdrop of the Pandiyan dynasty. The film's star cast features a bunch of fresh talents. The trailer hints at an exciting blend of drama and action, promising a memorable cinematic experience.

Yaathisai is streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

Good Night:

Director Vinayak Chandrasekaran has written and directed Good Night, which revolves around the struggles of an average Joe with a snoring problem. The film stars Manikandan and Meetha Raghunath in the lead roles.

Good Night is streaming Disney+Hotstar.

Por Thozhil:

Por Thozhil was one of the biggest commercial and critical success stories of Tamil cinema in 2023.

Ayothi is a timely political drama that highlights the importance of communal harmony in a multi-ethnic society.

Manthira Moorthy, stars M. Sasikumar in the lead, while it has Yashpal Sharma, Preethi Asrani, Pugazh, Anju Asrani and Master Advaith Vinod in the supporting cast.
