Just like Bollywood favoring multistarrers, Tamil cinema also has welcome multistarrer subjects, and taking in account the past few years records they have done a pretty decent business. They have made good collections indeed. Here are a few of them.
A family tale involving brothers, Samuthiram starring Sarath Kumar, late Murali, Manoj in KS Ravikumar’s direction made good business.
Aanandham with Malayalam superstar Mamooty, late Murali and Abbas in Lingusamy’s direction won a few hearts with its family content. Late Srividhya played the endearing mother.
STR’s Vaanam was a multistarrer with an ensemble star cast. Remade from a Telugu blockbuster, it made reasonable business in Tamil Nadu as well.
Although Mankatha might seem it’s all about Ajith, it also has an ensemble star cast including Arjun and the Venkat Prabhu regulars. What it did to the box office is everybody’s guess.
Shankar’s adaptation of 3 Idiots, upcoming Nanban has Vijay, Jiiva and Srikanth in the lead. Another multistarrer, Shankar is hopeful that the movie will be as successful as it was in Hindi.
