5 Must-watch Rural Entertainers

Every year, the Tamil film industry brings a variety of films to the audience. Some of these films are high on action, while others are heavy on drama. If you’re following Tamil cinema over the past two years, then you might be aware that Horror/Horror-comedies are the in-thing. The audience are also quite liking rural entertainers. These films are becoming safe bets for filmmakers. And the best part is, top-league actors have no qualms about working in these projects although it breaks their urban image. We bring to you a list of some very entertaining films set against rural backdrops.

Paruthiveeran (2007)

Directed by Ameer, Paruthiveeran can easily be adjudged the most rustic rural film in recent times. The film’s brutal visuals, added an amount of realism enough to make you cringe. The film won acclaim at several international film festivals. It also won two National Awards, and two Tamil Nadu State awards. Warning: The gory content could disturb you immensely.
Sundarapandian (2012)
Sudarapandian is film that works on a similar template like Sasikumar’s previous film – Nadodigal. Sundarapandian (Sasikumar) helps his friend unite with his crush, who also happens to be the same girl Sundarapandian fell in love with. This film also conveyed the concept of trust and betrayal while weaving a story around friendship.  If there’s such an award to give away, then Sasikumar should get it for ‘The Best Actor in a Rural Entertainer’ award. And we’re sure you’d agree.
Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam (2013)
What happens when Sivakarthikeyan and Soori team up for a film? Hilarity is guaranteed. And Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam did just that. Set in a village, the film showcased a love story and a tale of friendship. With colorful visuals, and funny antics by Sivakarthikeyan, Soori and Sathyaraj, this film had the audience in splits. The climax surprise thrilled many. 
Komban (2015)
When it comes to making rural entertainers, director Muthaiah is a pro. His debut film Kutty Pulli revolved around a the relationship between a mother and his son. While his second film Komban centered around a man and his father-in-law. Komban is high on violence. This film introduced us to the traditional weddings/rituals that takes place in villages. Muthaiah’s latest film, Maruthu also has a rural setting.
Vetrivel (2016)
Sasikumar‘s recent film, Vetrivel had many shades of his previous films – Nadodigal and Sundarapandian, but what made this film stand out was its neat execution. Although predictable, this film featured comedy, family drama and romance in the right measure without making it preachy. The film also shun light on the caste based issues that exist in small towns/villages.
