Top 8 Must Watchable Rajinikanth Movies

Top 8 Must Watchable Rajinikanth Movies

Superstar Rajinikanth began his career in 1975 with a relatively small role as an abusive husband with director K Balachander's 'Apoorva Raagangal' starring Kamal Haasan in the lead. Rajinikanth gradually rose to become a star actor after initially playing the role of an antagonist in his early films. The growth of the star has been phenomenal. Here is a list  of Rajinikanth's top movies over the years.

1. Moondru Mudichu (1976)



During the initial days of his career, Rajinikanth often donned the role of a negative lead and he made a mark with 'Moondru Mudichu', directed by his mentor K Balachander. The movie revolves around three people, a college going girl (Sridevi) and two men who fall in love with her (Kamal Haasan and Rajnikanth). Both Kamal Haasan and Rajnikanth are room-mates where Rajinikanth pretends to back Kamal's love while secretly hoping to create a divide between them.

2. 16 Vayathinile (1977)



Rajnikanth played a village rogue called Parattai in the film and the audiences were left spellbound with his teasing line, 'ithu eppadi irukku?' (How is it?). The film starred Kamal Haasan, Rajinikanth and Sridevi in the lead once again and went on to win four state awards.

3. Ninaithale Inikkum (1979)



Directed by K Balachander, like many other popular Rajini films, this too starred Kamal Haasan. Rajni plays the guitarist in a music troupe where Kamal Haasan is the lead singer with Jayapradha as the female lead. It is in this youthful entertainer, the superstar is challenged to flip his cigarette 10 times or lose a finger.

4. Thillu Mullu (1981)



Rajini plays the carefree graduate named Ayyampettai Arivudainambi Kaliyaperumal Chandran and he pulls of clean jokes effortlessly making this movie a classic laugh-a-thon. Rajinikanth had to shave his moustache for the film, making it the first film which featured him without a moustache.

5. Sri Raghavendrar (1985)



Having completed 99 movies, Rajinikanth played the role of the Hindu saint Raghavendra, who is his spiritual guru. Though the performance of Rajinikanth was much appreciated the movie flopped at the box office due to the fact that the fans couldn't accept their star ending in a tomb. But when Rajini was recently asked to list his favourite movies, this was on number one.

6. Bloodstone (1988)



The superstar made his only English film appearance in Bloodstone, directed by Dwight Little. The mystery-adventure film was produced by Ashok Amritraj and Sunanda Murali Manohar. Though the movie did not live up to the expectations and turned out to be a disaster at the box office, it is remembered for the star's debut in English.

7. Muthu (1995)



The film was a blockbuster and completed a 175-day run at the box office. It was later released in Japanese as Muthu Odoru Maharaja which means Muthu - The Dancing Maharaja.  The film grossed a record US$ 1.6 million in Japan in 1998 and was responsible for creating a large Japanese fan-base for the actor. Muthu's success in Japan led American news magazine Newsweek to comment in a 1999 article that Rajinikanth had "supplanted Leonardo DiCaprio as Japan's trendiest heartthrob."

8. Enthiran (2010)



Director Shankar and Rajinikanth combination was back after a few years after their successful 'Sivaji' in 2007. Rajinikanth was seen in the dual roles, as a scientist and a robot with Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai paired opposite him. The superstar's role as a robot that turns into a villain was loved by the fans more than his role as the scientist who creates the robot.
