Top Tamil Movies That Deserve Sequels (Spoiler Alert)

There is nothing as too much of a good thing is there? There are so many memories that we love to relive time and again or activities that we go back to regularly. As we await the resumption of the lives we know and love, let us take this time to revisit a few Tamil movies that deserve sequels.

Anniyan (2005)

Director Shankar’s vigilante drama Anniyan starring Vikram is a tale of a meek lawyer with multiple personality disorder who turns into a deadly masked combatant at night to fight crime. The film was a success not only for Vikram’s performance as Ambi, Remo and Anniyan but also for its open-ended conclusion that sees Ambi still possessing the Anniyan personality, possibly hinting at a sequel. There hasn’t been one so far but it would definitely pique the viewers’ interest to see further adventures of this character.

Ayirathil Oruvan (2010)

Selvaraghavan’s ambitious magnum opus Ayirathil Oruvan starring Karthi, Reema Sen and Andrea Jeremiah is a bold fantasy drama that revolves around an archaeological troupe that goes in search of evidence leading to the existence of the historic Chola tribe. While this is a daring and promising project, the film turns muddled and complex with too much information and too little explanation. However, it does warrant a sequel for its brave intent. In addition, the ending which shows Karthi’s character escaping with the last existing Chola heir indicates a definite sequel which hasn’t been filmed thus far.

Vikram (1986)

A stylish film about spies, double agents, missiles and Villians, Vikram was a very different film for the times-quite like a “Mission Impossible” plot. Kamal Haasan plays a RAW agent mourning the death of his wife and is assigned to a top-secret case involving the retrieval of a dangerous missile. Also starring stalwarts like Sathya Raj, Amjad Khan, Ambika and Dimple Kapadia, the film redefined the landscape of the action genre in Tamil cinema. Much like the mission impossible series, Vikram could definitely benefit from a swashbuckling sequel.

Guru Sishyan (1988)

Guru Sishyan is an entertaining action-comedy about two ex-convicts played by Rajinikanth and Prabhu who set out to prove the innocence of a wrongly accused fellow convict. The film is a rollicking laugh riot with crackling chemistry between the leads packed with many hilarious moments. Guru Sishyan was a huge commercial success running for over 175 days in the theatres. The two protagonists went on to become cult figures as well. Another movie following their amusing pursuits never materialised and would be a welcome watch.

Streaming on Jio Cinema

Vikram Vedha (2017)

This cop-gangster thriller inspired by the stories of Vikram and Betal was a hugely successful blockbuster starring R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathy as sparring rivals walking the tightrope between good and evil. The film closes with both protagonists aiming guns at each other, thus serving up a climax that was open-ended, ambiguous and left a lot to personal interpretation and imagination. This is a perfect recipe for a sequel and another chance to see these fine actors on screen. While there were rumours about talks of the 2nd chapter of Vikram Vedha, nothing has been confirmed so far.

Streaming on Disney+ Hotstar

We do hope that some of these films get a second look. Meanwhile, check our other recommendations and stay safe.
