20 Best Tamil Movies on Netflix Right Now

Movie buffs around the world have a popular misconception that Bollywood is a synonym for Indian cinema. But the Indian film industry is rather an umbrella term that comprises Hindi films, regional movies, and art cinema. Being the world’s largest filmmaking nation, India produces more than 1500 movies per year in different languages. Netflix, which reaches around 125 million subscribers in 190 countries around the world, made its Indian entry rather late, in January 2016. And when it happened, the in-house curators were as perplexed as the non-Indian moviegoers watching the world’s second-most populous nation’s cinematic realm.

Netflix took its time to list some of the best flicks from the prominent regional film industries like Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, and Bengali, fighting a tough battle with rivals like Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar, and Voot. While other streaming platforms are far ahead with impressive regional content, Netflix is yet to catch up. But the world’s leading streaming platform has managed to list some of the best picks from regional cinema.

Based in Chennai, the capital city of Tamil heartland, Tamil Cinema, which is fondly called Kollywood, has a wide reach across the nation as well as among the Tamil diaspora in the U.S., Singapore, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Japan, the Middle East, parts of Africa, Oceania, and Europe. So with all that said, here’s the list of really good Tamil movies on Netflix that are available to stream right now.

19. Nila (2016)

Set beautifully in the night time against the urban backdrop, this film is widely praised for its cinematography, acting, and powerful direction.

The narrative plays with the boundaries of love, lust, friendship, and maturity. The reason that Selvaraj wanted to make this film was because of the “compelling” story and its setting.

Made on a small budget, ‘Goli Soda’ was one of the blockbusters in 2015. The movie garnered rave reviews for its stunning portrayal of the class dynamics in the society, told mostly through debutante actors. Like its predecessor, ‘Goli Soda 2‘ tries to draw a picture of class difference prevailing in society through the lives of four youngsters from different classes. Their dreams of making it big in the worlds are shaken by the class prejudices. The movie sheds light on the grave identity crisis of youth hailing from underprivileged classes to mark their places in the mainstream of modern Indian society.

9. Spyder (2017)

Spyder (2017)

‘Spyder’ is another AR Murugadoss directorial which is made simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu.

8. Taramani (2017)

Taramani takes us through a journey of people discovering their best versions after diving into the darkest parts of themselves. What circumstances compel us to be when no one is looking makes us reflect on who we really are and who we want to be. This story takes us through love, attachment, sexuality, blackmail, possessiveness, forgiveness, integrity all at once. Directed by Ram, the film introduces the debutante Vasanth Ravi in the lead role along with Andrea Jeremiah and Adrian Knight Jesly. The performances by the lead actors have been appreciated while Ram’s voiceovers may have been considered “preachy.” However, it does leave us with a somewhat accurate idea of people’s “conservative” mindset even in an urban place like Chennai.

7.Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal (2020)

The story of two friends, who con people by posing as app developers and their misadventures as they find love, makes the film a fun watch. All four actors in the film have been given enough space which makes the film even more special. ‘Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal’ was shot in Delhi, Goa, and Chennai by the much-appreciated debutante director, Desingh Periyasamy. The entertainer does not come across as preachy and nor does it hold guilt over any of the characters for what they have done. However, it does leave us with some “life lessons” through this funny yet filled-with-twists story.

6. Anjaan (2014)

Anjaan (2014)

Set in the narrows alleys of Mumbai underworld, ‘Anjaan’ follows a handicapped man named Krishna who travels all the way to the metropolis in search of his brother, Raju Bhai.

Each segment is introduced with a short graphic of Shiva and a poem connected to one of the four elements. The movie, which was made in Tamil and Malayalam simultaneously and intended to cash on Dulquer Salman’s immense fan following as an angry young man, however, met with a mixed response upon release.

The fact that the film does not push any judgments on the characters is widely appreciated in addition to the very strong performances by the actors.

Vinod and Nirav Shah have also been appreciated.

2. Sila Samayangalil (2016)

Also known as ‘Sometimes’ this film narrates an unusual story of seven strangers who go to a clinic to get tested for AIDS and their anxiety as they learn that one of them is infected. It is human nature to be curious and to imagine possibilities or an alternative reality. As each of the characters reveals their story through conversations varying in-depth, we start to empathize with the characters and what they are going through. The film also highlights the stigma that surrounds AIDS and how it affects people whether they actually have it or not. This is shown tactfully as the characters do not have inhibitions judging one another although they are all standing in the same spot. The entire film is set in the waiting lounge of a clinic; therefore the portrayal of the characters and the strength of storytelling carry the film on its shoulders.

1. Merku Thodarchi Malai (2018)

Directed by Lenin Bharathi and produced by Vijay Sethupathi, ‘Merku Thodarchi Malai’ is a story of Rangasamy (Antony) a daily wage laborer whose dream is to own a piece of land and live off farming. This widely acclaimed film has been screened at multiple film festivals and even won multiple awards. The legendary Ilaiyaraaja’s music enhances the beauty of the film.

The movie’s title which translates to “Western Ghats” is a story showcasing the brutal reality of the landless laborers. It brings to life the multilayered conflicts that shroud land ownership- be it the conflict between man and nature, or men of different classes, or the tussle between corporate and the indigenous communities. What is special about the film is the fact that ninety percent of the actors belong to the villages where the film is based; Lenin himself hails from one of those villages. In his interview with The Wire, Lenin shares that his mother was a laborer on an estate, and his father was a part of the Communist movement.

(1960-09-12) 12 September 1960 (age 61)[1]

Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India[2]

OccupationActor, comedian, playback singer
Years active1988- present

Kumaravadivel Natarajan (born 12 September 1960), known professionally as Vadivelu, is an Indian actor, comedian and playback singer. Since the 1990s, he has performed in supporting and lead roles as a comedy actor in Tamil cinema.

While having worked in more than 200 films, Vadivelu received awards in the Best Comedian category for his performances in Kaalam Maari Pochu (1996), Vetri Kodi Kattu (2000), Thavasi (2001), Chandramukhi (2005), Imsai Arasan 23rd Pulikesi (2006), Pokkiri (2007), Marudhamalai (2007) and Kathavarayan (2008). His popularity led to his media-coined nickname, Vaigai Puyal, meaning "Vaigai storm",[3] referring to the river that flows through his hometown Madurai.

Early life[edit]

Vadivelu was born on 12 September 1960[1] in Madurai, Tamil Nadu[2] to Natarajan and Vaitheswari. Vadivelu is married to Sarojini and has four children: daughters Kannigaparameswari, Karthiga,[4] Kalaivani,[5] and a son, Subramaniyan.[6]

Vadivelu did not have a formal education, instead he worked in his father's glass cutting business and continued it with his brothers after his father died. In his free time, he participated in local stage plays, usually in a comic role.[7]


Main article: Vadivelu filmography

Early stage (1988–1997)[edit]

In 1988, he was launched through a small character in T. Rajendar’s En Thangai Kalyani.[8]

Vadivelu met Rajkiran on a train while on his way to Chennai to visit his bride-to-be. Rajkiran later recalled that he was so amused by their conversation during the train ride that he agreed to give Vadivelu a role in his upcoming film, En Rasavin Manasile (1991), directed by Kasthuri Raja. It was also the beginning of the Goundamani-Senthil-Vadivelu combination that produced a few skits in the early 90s.[9]

Actor Vijayakanth was the person who supported Vadivelu during his early career. He says that it was Vijayakanth the substantial in casting Vadivelu in Chinna Gounder (1992).[10]

In 1992, he played contrasting characters in both Kamal Haasan films. Vadivelu joined Goundamani and Charle in the comedy film Singaravelan. In this movie, Vadivelu’s role was very interesting, talking butler English with curly hair.[11] Then in the movie Thevar Magan, Vadivelu played a worker in patriarch Sivaji Ganesan’s household.[12][13]

Vadivelu’s first solo came in director Shankar’s Kadhalan (1994), in which he played the friend of Prabhu Deva’s college student character.

He won his first Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Comedian in Kaalam Maari Pochu (1996).[14]

In the same year, he starred in the movie Kadhal Desam (1996).

The following year, Vadivelu acted in many films, but his work in Bharathi Kannamma (1997) was successful and its combination with actor Parthiban.

Superstardom in comedy (1998–2008)[edit]

Vadivelu has played as many as 15 to 20 movies a year in the late 90s. He is known to assist directors, with his own input being used during sets. The hallmark of his trade was self-deprecation. Vadivelu’s characters thought very highly of themselves – they were clownish versions of the gang leader.[15]

He starred in movies as Kaathala Kaathala (1998), Kannathal (1998), Viralukketha Veekkam (1999), Nesam Pudhusu (1999), Mudhalvan (1999), Thirupathi Ezhumalai Venkatesa (1999) and Paattali (1999).

As the 2000s began, Vadivelu became the undisputed "king of comedy".[16] He later went on to perform numerous roles, including Kandha Kadamba Kathir Vela (2000), Vetri Kodi Kattu (2000), Koodi Vazhnthal Kodi Nanmai (2000), Friends (2001), Middle Class Madhavan (2001), Manadhai Thirudivittai (2001) and Thavasi (2001).[17]

Vadivelu did comedy scenes with Vivek too. After a certain stage of his success, he started to act as a solo comedian, with some small comedians accompanying him.[18]

During his peak in the mid-2000s, Vadivelu’s imagination knew no bounds. By this phase, he was a colossus in the Tamil film world, which came with the freedom to meddle with scripts and override even established directors. He has acted with almost all the top heroes in Tamil cinema.[19]

His part in movies like Vetri Kodi Kattu (2000), Friends (2001), Winner (2003), Chandramukhi (2005), Imsai Arasan 23rd Pulikecei (2006), Pokkiri (2007), Marudhamalai (2007) and Kathavarayan (2008) are typical of his performances that have brought him laurels and accolades from the Tamil movie-goers.[20]

Cashing in on his popularity, he starred in the lead role of the historical comedy in the film Imsai Arasan 23rd Pulikecei. The movie was declared a blockbuster and was widely acclaimed for its 'clean' comedy. Vadivelu played in a dual role, playing twin brothers of a heartless but comical dictator king and a revolutionary. His next venture as the lead star was in the movie Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan (2008).[21]

Controversies and decline (2008–2017)[edit]

On 21 September 2008, Vadivelu's residence in the Saligramam neighbourhood in Chennai was pelted with stones by a gang, leaving several windows broken and furniture damaged. The actor had taken refuge in a room in his home and was safe. Vadivelu is said to have suspected Vijayakanth because of a recent case that he had filed against the latter for assault and because the final court hearing was to take place the following day. He suspected that the attack may have been carried out to prevent Vadivelu from attending the hearing.[22] As a result, Vadivelu filed another case against Vijayakanth for attempted murder. He later mentioned his interest in contesting against Vijayakanth in the upcoming assembly elections and in his words, "teaching him a lesson." In response, actor Vijayakanth, in a press meet on 22 September, claimed that Vadivelu's allegations were based on hearsay.[23][24]

Vadivelu appeared in notables roles with Villu (2009), Kanthaswamy (2009), Peranmai (2009), Aadhavan (2009), Kacheri Arambam (2010), Sura (2010), Thillalangadi (2010) and Nagaram Marupakkam (2010).

In 2010, Vadivelu held a press conference, accusing fellow comedian and actor Singamuthu for forgery and financial cheating. Vadivelu, who was previously friends with Singamuthu, purchased land from him but later came to learn that the documents were void. This resulted in the former taking legal action against the latter.[25][26]

In the year 2011, Kaavalan movie with actor Vijay was a remarkable one.[27]

During the legislative assembly elections that place in Tamil Nadu during April 2011, Vadivelu vehemently campaigned for the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and its alliance. During his public speeches, he predominantly condemned politician and actor Vijayakanth, whose party, the Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK), allied with the opposition party All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), headed by Jayalalithaa. His allegations of Vijayakanth included him being a "drunkard". In a campaign speech in Tiruvarur, Vadivelu stated that "(his) only aim is to sweep out Vijayakanth's whole team and to campaign vigorously for DMK's victory". Vadivelu was criticised as being biased, only supporting a DMK-led victory for personal gains and not once mentioning anything against the official opposition, the AIADMK, or its leader.[28][29] In a turn of events, the election was eventually successful for the AIADMK alliance, and Vijaykanth won his constituency by a considerable margin.[30]

As his career as a lead actor was waning such as Tenaliraman (2014), Eli (2015), Vadivelu chose to return to portraying supporting and comedy roles in films headlined by other actors.[31][32] He portrayed a role alongside Vishal in Suraj's Kaththi Sandai (2016), before collaborating again with P. Vasu in the horror comedy Shivalinga (2017). Vadivelu then portrayed a supporting role alongside Vijay in Mersal (2017), with the film becoming a blockbuster at the box office. A critic from The New Indian Express noted that it was a "brilliant comeback for Vadivelu" and that "his comedy is subtle, yet sufficient".[33]

Banning (2018–2021)[edit]

After agreeing to work with Chimbu Deven on Imsai Arasan 23th Pulikesi, a sequel to their successful film, he fell out with the director over an issue regarding his costume designer and subsequently refused to cooperate. The film's producers, S. Shankar and Subaskaran Allirajah, later filed a legal case over his unexplained absence. Likewise, R. K. and Stephen, the producers of Neeyum Naanum Naduvula Peyum and another untitled film, also opted to file complaints to the Nadigar Sangam against Vadivelu's lack of cooperation.[34] The Tamil Film Producers Council issued a ban against casting Vadivelu in future films.[35]

In his crisp video footage sent to Sun TV, Vadivelu said that a few vested interests are trying to stop his growth in the film industry.[36]

In 2019, Vadivelu was interviewed by Behindwoods, in which he criticized Chimbu Deven and Shankar for their creative differences. Producer T. Siva and director Naveen (who worked as an assistant to Chimbu Deven in Imsai Arasan 23rd Pulikesi) spoke out against Vadivelu’s comments.[37][38]

In 2020, Vadivelu, who had recently joined Twitter, has not been taking up as many roles as he did earlier. Adding that he would soon take up a project, the comedian said, “You’ve also been asking why I’m not acting yet. Soon, I will make my entry in a grand manner”.[39]

In 2021, in a significant hint about his return to the Tamil cinema, Vadivelu has said that a good thing will happen definitely.[40]

On 28th August 2021, joining an over the phone interview with Puthiya Thalaimurai TV, Vadivelu confirmed that his ban was lifted and he has agreed for 5 films with Lyca Productions. First of which will commence shooting in September 2021, named Nai Shekar. He also mentioned that it feels like it is his first film and this is his rebirth in Cinema.[41][42]


Acting style[edit]

Vadivelu's roles involve heavy use of slapstick and puns, which has led him to be typecast.[43] His comedy sequences typically end with him getting soundly thrashed and a closing one-liner from him bemoaning his situation or antagonists. His popularity could be ascribed to the general audience being able to identify with him thanks to his rustic looks, accent and body language.[44]


Vadivelu's dialogues served as an inspiration for memes in social media.[45][46] Many meme creators use Vadivelu's dialogues for all ongoing situations in the world to express irony.[43] His dialogues have been part of daily conversation and also inspired the titles for various Tamil films.[47] In 2019, Vadivelu was featured in the sudden viral memes related to the hashtag Pray for Nesamani.[48]

Funniest comedy scenes from Tamil movies 

Key Highlights

  • Tamil films have given some of the best comedians over years
  • Actors such as Goundamani, Senthil, Vivek and Vadivelu have given some blockbuster comedy films
  • We have compiled a list of popular Tamil comedy films that could instantly lift up your mood

The art of comedy is indeed a very serious business in the film making process. More than rampant action sequences and out of the box dance moves, it is a comedy that requires effort because making people laugh is no easy business.

Currently, we are going through unprecedented times owing to the COVID-19 crisis. So today, why not take a break from all the fuss and re-visit some of the evergreen comedy scenes in Tamil films? Be it funny counter dialogues or innovative slapstick comedy, the comedy legends from the Tamil film industry have given some blockbuster scenes making the audience crack up. 

Banana Comedy 

Karakattakkaran, the 1989 film directed by Gangai Amaren had Ramarajan, Kanaka, Senthil and Goundamani playing important roles. Illyaraja scored music for the film that went on to break most box office records. 

Steve Waugh Comedy 

Vadivelu's comedy legacy is parallelly written alongside Goundamani and Senthil in the Tamil Film Industry. The film Manadhai Thirudivittai (2001) has Vadivelu and Vivek comedy combination, what more can one ask for? 

Funniest comedy scenes from Tamil movies- Vadivelu Vivek.jpg

Vadivelu's role as Steve Waugh and Vivek as Valaiyapathi is an evergreen comedy-drama that can make one laugh to date. Vadivelu's Sing in the Rain restaurant comedy scene and the Why Blood Same Blood scene are the highlights of the film.

Soona Panna Panchayat Scene 

Soona Paana is the clipped form of Subbaiah Pandian played by Vadivelu in the film Kannaathal (1998). Soona Paana is one of the trademark characters played by Vadivelu in his career. 

The film has a panchayat scene in which Sonna Panna is present. The Panchayat head is addressing the case of a 'missing goat' in the village filed by a petitioner. Who would have thought the mannerisms and dialogue delivery of Vadivelu in the scene will inspire meme creators after one and a half decades? 

There are also a plethora of other comedy scenes such as the Winner Kattadhurai, Uthamaputhiran Vivek, Goundamani Senthii's petromax light comedy, Soori's parotta comedy, Santhanam's cellphone comedy, Karunas Polladhavan comedy and Vadivelu beedi comedy to name a few which can tickle your funny bones.

Tamil Movie Best Comedy Scenes - Vadivelu - Soori - Rajendran - Karunakaran - RJ Balaji

The scene where Yogi Babu discovers that the family of the girl he likes is full of drug mules or the rules one has to keep in mind while ‘kednapping’… there are a lot of unforgettable moments Tamil comedy films have presented to us in this past decade. There’s little cheer elsewhere, so this list of 10 comedies may, perhaps, help narrow down your search for some comfort viewing. 

Boss Engira Bhaskaran (2010)

Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video

Before All In Azhagu Raja and Mr Local was inflicted upon us, M Rajesh and his lieutenant Santhanam gave us some of our most hilarious comedies. Your favourite may be SMS (Siva Manasila Shakthi) or even OKOK (Oru Kal Oru Kannadi) but there’s no denying the rewatchability of this story about two entrepreneurial goofballs and their lives in Kumbakonam.

Soodhu Kavvum (2013)

Where to watch:  Zee 5

A lot of the love we still feel for Vijay Sethupathi is a result of his roaring performance as the heartbroken-widower-cum-expert-kednapper in this dark comedy. With an amazing ensemble cast, which includes excellent actors such as Ashok Selvan, Karunakaran, Bobby Simha and Ramesh Tilak, there’s not a single dull moment in Nalan Kumarasamy’s first film. We bet that you’re humming ‘Kasu, Panam, Thuttu, Money, Money’ right now. 

Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam (2013)

Where to watch: Google Movies

Arguably THE movie that made Sivakarthikeyan everyone’s ‘namma veettu pillai’ is this comedy about two loveable good-for-nothings with way too much time on their hands. With great songs by Imman, and Sathyaraj in a great role, this Ponram film still holds well and is perfect for a lazy Sunday watch with family.

Naanum Rowdy Dhaan (2015)

Where to watch: MX Player, Sun NXT

The second of the three Vijay Sethupathi films on this list, and an excellent entertainer, this crazy comedy helped us discover director Vignesh Shivan and his unique brand of dark humour. Set in Puducherry, and with some great music by Anirudh, one cannot forget its many great characters, such as ‘Rahul thatha’, who has become a gift that just keeps giving. 

 Aandavan Kattalai (2016)

Where to watch: Sony LIV, SunNXT

This is one of the best films of the last decade, but it’s still severely underrated. This comedy of errors has everything going for it; the writing is smart, the characters are well etched-out and it has a slew of major LOL moments (remember the scene where Yogi Babu gets the UK visa?). Made by M Manikandan, the same person who made Kaaka Muttai, it’s a sin if you still haven’t found time for this. ‘Karmeghakuzhali’ will never sound the same to you. 

Velainu Vandhutta Vellaikaaran (2016)

Where to watch: Disney Hotstar

This is again one of those comedies where the characters and certain scenes have ended up more popular than the entire movie, which did well too. Even so, that great comedy scene where the forgetful MLA Jacket Janakiraman (Robo Shankar) tries to recollect where he hid his bounty is one that is not very easy to forget any time soon. Add the “Pushpa Purushan” joke to the mix, and that’s enough to warrant a rewatch. 

Kolamavu Kokila (2018)

Where to watch: ZEE5

Arguably the darkest of our dark comedies is this crime comedy starring Nayanthara, directed by first timer Nelson. If told differently, this could very well have been a hard hitting drama with a Breaking Bad-like aftertaste. But the director takes a very serious plot idea and turns it on its head to give us characters such as a hyper-active maapla who will do anything to marry the heroine’s sister. Or, Yogi Babu’s character who feels it’s only a matter of time before Kokila (Nayanthara) falls head over heels in love with him. 

Tamil Padam 2 (2018)

Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video 

Strictly for people who are clued in enough into Tamil cinema, this spoof by CS Amudhan, is a sequel to his original Tamizh Padam, and takes on everything and everyone. From OPS to Saamy, from Game Of Thrones to Thevar Magan, to our star-propping masala film director. If trolling ever becomes a cinematic genre, this would be its ‘Agila Ulaga’ Superstar.  

A1 (2019)

Where to watch: Sun NXT

A1 doesn’t try to be anything more than a series of comic skits, but it does this so effectively and with such little pretence that one has to bow at the conviction with which it sells its absurdity. With a second hour set almost entirely during a funeral, every small thing in this Santhanam-starrer contributes to tense moments, before all that is released in the form of comedy.  

Monster (2019)

Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video

It’s really a shame that a comedy like Monster, a loveable film with a cartoon-like charm, has become a once-in-a-decade event in our industry. It is about a man who uses up all his savings to buy a home just before he gets married. But when he’s visited by an extremely destructive rat with an eating problem, we get Tom And Jerry, Charlie Chaplin and little bit of Home Alone, all in one delightful family movie. 

Notable add-ons include Dharala Prabhu (Amazon Prime Video), Idharkuthaane Aasaipattai Balakumara (Disney Hotstar), Neram (Sun NXT), Mundasupatti (Disney Hotstar), Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom (Sun NXT), the second half of Jigarthanda (Disney Hotstar) and the first half of Kaashmora  (Disney Hotstar).
