Top 10 Dhanush Movies

Avatar of Devendra Kumar




There is no doubt in admitting that Dhanush is one of the most famous actors in the history of Tamil cinema. He has earned a good reputation in the Bollywood film industry as well. His recent addition to the Russo Brothers’ upcoming project, The Gray Man, put him in the limelight again. He will perform alongside Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, and others. He has also finished his work for Atrangi Re which is scheduled to release this year. His dark and skinny appearance does not reflect the infinite acting talent he possesses. Along with the National Award, he has also bagged various prominent accolades in his career.

Here are the top 10 Dhanush movies! Enjoy!

The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir

The Extraordinary of the Fakir (2018)

This movie might have bombed on the box office. But it showcases one of the most charming performances of Dhanush’s career. His heart-winning character makes us forget about its flaws. He plays the role of a trickster. With the help of his street-smart techniques, he makes the masses believe that he possesses some kind of superpower. After spending some time in prison, he finds out about the death of his mother. Soon, he begins to search for his father. His search leads him to be a part of various adventurous journeys.



3 (2012)

Do you guys still remember the song “Why this Kolaveri di?” Well, this little song might have gained more popularity than 3 (movie). But we also cannot deny that it serves as a pretty good romantic thriller with the touch of some psychological elements. Dhanush’s wife, Aishwariya, sat on the director’s chair for this one. Yes, its narrative seems a bit complicated. But the performances of its lead cast, especially Dhanush, were widely appreciated. It tells the story of two high school lovers named Ram and Janani. They eventually marry and start a happy life together. Janani’s world turns upside down when she discovers her husband’s suicide.



Karnan (2021)

Meet the recent hit of Dhanush’s filmography… Karnan! Despite getting released with a 50% occupancy limit, it earned more than 60 crores at the box office. It didn’t even let the ongoing pandemic affect its collections. Dhanush’s outstanding performance led to positive word of mouth for this movie. He plays the titular character who fights for the rights of his community’s people. Various social issues like casteism, inequality with low caste people, and others are raised in this project.

Mayakkam Enna

Mayakkam Enna (2011)

This movie cemented Dhanush as one of the top leading performers in Tamil cinema. He does not hesitate to show his extended range of acting skills in this film. His own brother, Selvaraghavan, serves as its director. He plays the role of an aspiring wildlife photographer. He falls in love with one of his best friend’s love interest, Yamini. Eventually, they get married. Soon, he learns that Madhesh bags a National Award for his photo. It turns him alcoholic and derogatory. What happens to the married life of Karthik and Yamini is the best part of this project.



Maryan (2013)

Maryan is another fine addition to Dhanush’s fantastic film career. Alongside Parvathy, he acts brilliantly and makes us fall in love with his character. It concentrates on the love story of Maryan and Panimalar. The latter loves him to death. But Maryan displays reluctance at first. Eventually, he begins to like her company. Serious circumstances force him to leave her to go to Sudan as a worker. When his contract expires, he plans to visit his love. Unfortunately, he gets abducted by some lethal Sudanese terrorists.



Raanjhanaa (2013)

The moment you start watching this movie, you know in your heart that it is something special. Raanjhanaa is one of the best romantic dramas that has emerged in the last few years. Kudos to its director, Aanand L. Rai, and the lead cast consisting of Dhanush, Sonam Kapoor, Abhay Deol, and others. It received acclaim for its memorable dialogues, top-notch performances, amazing songs, and a complete knockout storyline. The leading man dons the character of a brahmin named Kundan. He becomes infatuated with a Muslim girl named Zoya. It beautifully portrays how twisty their bond gets as they progress in their lives.



Pudhupettai (2006)

Pudhupettai is often hailed as one of the greatest projects of Dhanush’s early career. He was known as a talented performer until this one arrived in the theatres. Nearly 15 have passed since its release, but it still manages to bring all the nostalgic and memorable moments. With his brother at the helm, he dispatches a commanding and enthralling performance. The runtime of three hours never seems to bore us. It showcases the story of a man who leaves his house at an early age. After some time, he finds himself rising in the criminal underworld.



Aadukalam (2011)

The film that bagged Dhanush his first-ever National Award… Aadukalam! It consists of his career-best performance to date. Under the top-notch direction of Vetrimaran, it excelled critically and commercially. It ended up earning more than thrice of its original budget. It tells the story of a rooster fighter named Karappu. People of his locality love the game of rooster fighting. It is a matter of utter pride and respect for them. He, along with Durai, is among the best players in Pettai’s team. This movie showcases the journey of Karappu and the struggles he faces with his growing fame.

Vada Chennai

Vada Chennai (2018)

Dhanush has been a crucial part of some of the most brilliant Tamil movies in the last few years. Vada Chennai is also one of those movies. It serves as the first part of the planned trilogy. Fans loved his superb acting performance along with the amazing plot. However, it also received some criticism regarding the portrayal of fishermen. Many believed that they were portrayed in an insulting way. Despite the controversies, it became a massive hit. He plays the character of a talented carrom player, Anbu. Soon, he finds himself getting involved with the rivalry between the two most notorious gangsters.



Asuran (2019)

Asuran was among the ten official entries of India for the Golden Globes this year. Despite not getting selected there, it won the hearts of millions of fans. Drawing its inspiration from the Kilvenmani massacre (1968), it displays the story of a village boy named Sivasaami (Dhanush). He slaughters a rich landlord. His father tries to save him from the landlord’s people who also belong to the upper-cast community. Dhanush’s cold and savage portrayal of the lead character shivers our bones. But it is also rated among his top performances ever.
