14. Velaikkaran (2017)

Mohan Raja’s movie revolves around a conflict between a cunning capitalist and a go-getter from a slum known as Aribu. Mohan Raja unfortunately fails to blend entertainment with idealistic notions.

However, Fahadh Faasil (in his first Tamil role) as the suave villain steals the show.
