Top Movies 2014 (Tamil / English / Hindi / Malayalam / Telugu)

Too many movies released this year and I have been to the theaters for nearly 90 times, most being 13 times in August and least being four times in Feb. Also, a few movies in laptop as well.

Jigarthanda is the best in Tamil for me. Banglore Days in Malayalam, Queen and PK in Hindi, Interstellar in Hollywood.

Movies I enjoyed:
  1. Jigarthanda - Top notch performance and fantastic writing. This is the best movie this year and my favorite as well. Even though the first half and second half were totally different I just enjoyed all the surprises.
  2. Madras - Karthi have chosen a script sensibly after some disasters in previous year. Also, Santhosh Narayanan's music, Kalai's acting made this one of the best.
  3. Mundasupatti - A comedy set up in a period based on a imaginary village which was quite fun and engaging. Also, excellent find of Ramadoss as Munishkanth.
  4. Thegidi - One of the best thrillers this year by a debutant director which kept the audience guessing throughout the movie.
  5. Vallinam - Best sports based film to be released in recent years and for a change it was not based on cricket. Kudos to the team for choreographing the basketball game sequences very real.
  6. Vaayai Moodi Pesavum - Second flick from Balaji Mohan after his enjoyable KSY. It was a fantasy movie and the second half was a real surprise.
  7. Sathuranga Vettai - A good con movie in Tamil, even though I didn't like some of the parts, but it was an excellent debut from Vinoth, especially the dialogues were sharp.
  8. KTVI - Parthipen finally arrives with an meta movie as usual he plays well with the words and quite a different attempt which made it very likeable.
  9. Pisaasu - Myshkin after OA comes with Pisaasu, only he can make people to love and fell sorry for a 'Pisaasu'.
  10. Maegamann - Maghiz Thirumeni's excellent work continues and a very neat thriller and excellent making made this very likeable.
  11. Jeeva - Suseentharan shows us about the politics in Tamilnadu Cricket Board with high on romance and Vishnu was a perfect cast.
  12. Yaamirukka Bayamey - A horror comedy which was more comedy than horror and it was quite surprising coming from some unknown team which made this flick enjoyable.
  13. VIP - Dhanush's runaway hit of the year, excellent mix of mass and class with Anirudh's high voltage music.
  14. Kaththi - Vijay and ARM back with a bang, this time on a social issue and convey the message well. Jeevanantham character by Vijay was refreshing to see him try something different.
  15. Arima Nambi - Vikram Prabhu's hit continued and this time with another good thriller this year.
  16. Saivam - AL Vijay after his Thalaivaa made a very pleasant movie with good star cast and some good music.
  17. Naaigal Jaakirathai - A good movie for Sibiraj after sometime, where a dog plays the lead role and another good thriller this year.
  18. Kaavia Thalaivan - Kudos to Vasanthabalan and team to bring back the drama period of Tamilnadu and excellent acting from Nasser and Prithviraj.
  19. Oru Kanniyum Moonu Kalavanigalum - Simbudhevan's fantasy movie with an excellent screenplay with some minute details and as usual high on comedy a different attempt and well made.
  20. Pannayarum Padminiyum - Another short-film made into a feature film, but some 30 minutes too many for the movie which tells about the bond between Pannayar and his car.
