2014 Tamil Movies Hits n Flops - Exclusive

on Dec 31, 2014

Way2movies presents you the list of Kollywood Hits and Flops for the year 2014. Tamil film industry witnessed over 200 straight Tamil releases this year, which is much more compared to last two years.

As always, there are few expected star film hits, Surprising low budget winners, highly expected films ending up as disasters.

2014 is the year of new talent, more than formulaic and commercial entertainers. Young filmakers caught moviegoers attention with refreshing and unique scripts. YIB, VIP [cinematographer Velraj], Kochadaiiyaan [Soundarya Rajinikanth], Mundaasupatti, Manjapai, Arima Nambi, Irumbu Kuthirai, Naaigal Jaakirathai to name a few.

Here is Kollywood 2014 Box-Office report card and our analysis. Take a look…

2014 had a good start with Aagadam, a Tamil film that was certified by Guinness World Record as the longest uncut film with 123 mins 30 secs running time.

Relating to the Box Office reports of the previous year [2013], 2014 has been quite successful for Tamil film industry. It has seen many noteworthy hits like Jilla, Veeram, Goli Soda, Yaamirukka Bayamey, Kaththi, Aranmanai, Thegidi, Maan Karate, Madras, Velai Illa Pattathari, Lingaa, Kaaviya Thalaivan, Saivam and many more.

Star Power & Expected Hits:

Vijay and Ajith has started off the year with a bang. Pongal releases, Jilla brought back the craze of multi-starrers, thanks to debutante director Nesan, while Veeram earned good collections at Tamil Nadu Box Office with descent profits to the makers.

Superstar Rajinikanth has his share of two films during 2014. While Kochadaiiyaan remained a moderate commercial hit, Lingaa collected more than 100 Cr net worldwide.

The actor-producer Vishal has won his second sequential hit with Naan Sigappu Manithan under Vishal Film Factory banner in Thiru direction. One more actor-producer Dhanush received his much needed hit with Velai Illa Pattathari, after continuous flops [3, Mariyaan, Naiyaandi] in the previous year.

Siddharth acquired his much needed break in Tamil industry with Jigarthanda, followed by Kaaviya Thalaivan. After tasting continuous flops in 2013, Karthi has made a strong comeback with Madras this year. Star comedian Santhanam has tested his hands as lead actor in Vallavanukku Pullum Aayudham, which turned out to be a descent hit.

Stars like Siva Karthikeyan [Maan Karatae], Vijay Sethupathi [Rummy, Pannaiyarum Padminiyum], Vishnu Vishal [Mundaasupatti, Jeeva] have continued their winning streak with respective films.

Big Budget Misses:

Suriya's Lingusamy directed Anjaan bombed big time due to routine story and regular performances, Samantha's bikini act didn't grab in much needed audiences for Anjaan.

Ravi K Chandran's directorial debut Yaan featuring Jeeva and Thulasi Nair couldn't reap gold at the box office, despite good performances.

Bollywood producers, Yash Raj Films southern debut Aaha Kalyam with Nani and Vani Kapoor ended up to be a moderate hit with no profits no loss to the makers, even after releasing in Tamil and Telugu languages.

Small is Big:

Miraculously, few low budget films turned out to be hits with no big stars in the cast. Films like, Goli Soda, horror films Yaamirukka Bayamey, Thegidi, Aranmanai, Pisasu. Sports drama Vallinam, Jeeva. Thrillers like Ennamo Nadakathu, Nee Enge En Anbe. Different genres like Dulquuer Salman's Tamil debut Vaayai Moodi Pesavum, Attakathi Dinesh's Cuckoo romance of two visually challenged youngsters. Social movie 'Nerungi Vaa Muthamidathe' taken on petrol crisis for social awareness, kept cash registers ringing at the overseas Box office too.
