National-Award winning actor Dhanush’s renowned films&nbsp

Over the years Dhanush has turned out to be one actor who has broken lots of stereotypes in the Tamil Cinema and has achieved a world-class standard in terms of performance-oriented, character-oriented commercial films. His awards and achievements so far are themselves proof of his credibilities. He recently won the 67th National Award for Best Actor for his movie Asuran.

Dhanush’s debut film Thulluvadho Ilamai, directed by Selvaraghavan was fresh with a young and talented cast. But, the movie failed to bring in big numbers at the box office. But the Selva-Dhanush duo kept on making the second film which was a very big hit that gave recognition to both Dhanush as well as the director, Kaadhal Konden. It went on to become the biggest hits in the early days for Dhanush. On a personal note too, ‘ it was a close-to-heart film for the family.’

As the saying goes “winning once will always be considered as luck, a continuous win will only be appreciated,” Dhanush had his next big hit with Thiruda Thirudi. The song Manmatha Rasaa was the most popular song of those days and the movie caught the attention of college-goers.

After this came a few flops working with new directors and Dhanush had to go back to his beloved brother Selva again to craft his biggest hit, the cult film Pudhu Pettai. The Tamil movie is celebrated even now for the rawness it has and the masterpiece it is. Yuvan scored the music for the film and its no doubt that this film moved Dhanush a step ahead to become an actor of this level. Thanks to Selva for finding an even fine-tuned Actor Dhanush every time he needed it.

From there on it was always a success for Dhanush, having a separate fan base for him. Then happened this magical combo that has become the biggest part of Dhanush’s Film career. The ‘Vetri’ combo. 

For the first time, Dhanush and director Vetrimaaran joined hands it was never expected to become a combo of this level. Their film Polladhavan was a big hit in the box office with collecting 17 crores, also giving a start to Vetri’s film career.

Though Dhanush had hits like Yaaradi Nee Mohini, Padikkathavan, and few others, his next big hit was again with his favorite director Vetrimaran. The film Aadukalam bagged two national awards at the 58th National Awards. This was the film that increased the fan base of Dhanush.

After a gap again, Dhanush’s Mayakkam Enna and his film 3 gave the actor wide recognition with his song Why this Kolaveri song going viral on the internet. Dhanush made his Hindi debut with Raanjhanaa, which scored well at the box office and made him a Pan-India star.
