2015’s Most Impressive Tamil Villains

Every year Tamil film buffs are introduced to new actors, some of whom go on to become popular actors of the film industry, while others fade away. In addition to new actors and actresses, we are also introduced to new villains. These villains aren’t just caricatures in the films, but add value to the film. They pose a threat to the life of the protagonist. In 2015, Tamil cinema saw a variety of antagonists in films. Most of them were heroes-turned-villains. From Arun Vijay in Yennai Arindhal to Parthiban in Naanum Rowdy Dhaan, we list this year’s most popular villains.
Arvind Swamy
Arvind Swamy charmed the audience and made women go ga-ga over him, when he starred in Mani Ratnam’s film Bombay. Now after 20 long years, he still has that effect. The actor portrayed the role of Siddharth Abhimanyu in Jayam Raja’s Thani Oruvan, and he was unarguably the most stylish and sophisticated villain of 2015. With hard-hitting dialogues and charismatic screen presence, he was the highlight of this film.
Arun Vijay
He may not have faced phenomenal success as a solo hero, but he did win overnight popularity by playing the role of Victor. With chiseled abs and a distinct hair style, Arun Vijay starred opposite Ajith in Gautham Menon‘s Yennai Arindhal. His successful streak as a villain continued, when he appeared as an antagonist in the Telugu film Bruce Lee: The Fighter. He will also be seen in the Kannada remake of Ivan Veramathiri opposite Punneth Rajkumar.
After entertaining the audience as the corrupt cop in Masss, Parthiban played the role of an antagonist in another film this year. Playing the role of Killivalavan a.k.a Killi- a womanizer and a heartless goon- Parthiban made quite an impact in Naanum Rowdy Dhaan. He received thunderous applause for his performance. He was a villain who disarmed us with his wisecracks.
The lover boy of the 80s returned to the big screen after a brief hiatus to play the role of an antagonist in KV Anand‘s Anegan. And he was certainly the surprise element in this film.  It was during the shoot of Raavanan that director Mani Ratnam had told Karthik to try his hand at playing a negative role. Looks like his risk paid off!
Vijay Yesudas
Who imagined a singer would take up a negative role in a film? Well, Vijay Yesudas did. He appeared in the movie Maari opposite Dhanush, and proved that he can act as well. 
S. J. Suryah
Filmmaker-turned-actor, S.J. Suryah is well-known for his cameo appearances in films, and has also appeared in a special dance number in director Aishwarya Dhanush’s Vai Raja Vai and Isai. Now, the actor will be seen in director Karthik Subbaraj‘s Iravi. His character in the film is said to have negative shades. We’re sure he’ll create a massive impact.
