Top 5 Worst Kollywood Movies of 2018

Over 200 movies released in 2018, half of which we didn’t even know the names or if they even had a theatrical release. Some movies raised the expectation meters before the release but ended up as a disappointment. Some are a missed or wasted opportunity and some landed in this list simply because they’re crap. Without further ado let’s check the Worst Movies of Kollywood in 2018.

5. Vishwaroopam 2 | Rating 2/5

Reason(s) Why The Movie Sucked: "A Disappointment!"

Did writer-director Kamal Haasan brought an end to what he started in an attracting fashion? NO! Unlike its prequel, Vishwaroopam 2 lacked a gripping storyline and suffered with a weak screenplay. Kamal Haasan failed to conclude what he started in an intriguing manner as the movie ended up as another mainstream cat-and-mouse brawl.

4. Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu | Rating 2/5 

Reason(s) Why The Movie Sucked: "A Missed Opportunity!"

It was surprising that a producer accepted to even make a movie with Director Santhosh Jayakumar who gave a half-baked failure movie last year. Teaming once again with Gautham Karthik, Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu (IAMK) is nothing but a pile of lascivious scenes. Being an adult-horror film, it was quite okay to use some sex based jokes and scenes, but the over usage of them makes the film look filthy. Santhosh Jayakumar could have come up with better screenplay to make the film more entertaining rather than sickening. Nevertheless, IAMK does make things hard up but the overall output of the movie looks uninteresting and feels oversexed.

3. Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren & Junga | Rating 1.5/5

Reason(s) Why The Movies Sucked: "A Disappointment!"

With seven releases (of which two were special appearance), Vijay Sethupathi was on a roll last year. One of the movies ’96 even made it to our Top 5 Best Kollywood Movies of 2018 list. But these two, didn’t go well with the audience. “A comical adventurous thrilling mass entertainment” is what the tagline of the movie reads. But on the contrary, the film is nothing relatable to the tagline. Director Arumuga Kumar’s “Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren” (ONNPS) ended as a humorless, dull and an uninteresting flick.

Barring the performances from the cast, Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren suffers from its unexciting storyline, poorly written screenplay and dull comical scenes which conclusively made it a tedious watch. Even with Junga, the fate was the same. Though VJS & Yogi Babu’s comedy performances were appreciated, the overall film was lacking flavor with weak screenplay.

2. Seemaraja | Rating 1.5/5

Reason(s) Why The Movie Sucked: "A Crap Show!"

As expected, Director Ponram repeats the same with ‘Seemaraja’ what he had done in his previous two flicks with Siva Karthikeyan in the lead role. While they were at least entertaining to a certain extent but ‘Seemaraja’ is bland and boring. Ponram has decided not to write anything fresh or intriguing to a rising star who believed him for the third time. What didn’t work with ‘Seemaraja’ is almost everything. The plot was an overly clichéd  with Siva Karthikeyan himself acting in similar movies earlier. The screenplay really tested my patience, after a long time during a movie I was looking at my watch every now and then, hoping for the movie to end soon. Without further whining I would like to say, Seemaraja is a tedious watch. A big yawn!

1. Saamy Square | Rating 1/5

Reason(s) Why The Movie Sucked: "A Crap Show!"

Have you ever been to a movie, where you felt suffocated because of the miserable scenes, headache causing songs, and background score and you just wanted to run away from the theatre? That’s how I felt while watching Chiyaan Vikram’s Saamy Square. Saamy 1 is considered as one of the best cop movies, a major break-through in Vikram’s career, the songs of the movie are still fresh to listen, Vivekh had talked about social injustice through his comedy, and punch dialogues are still enjoyed. Director Hari has overturned it and made a complete mess out of it. The movie adds up nothing new or intriguing or at least makes sense and the plot descends into complete mayhem.

The film lacked everything, right from a solid story, gripping screenplay, enjoyable action sequences, refreshing romance scenes, listenable songs or at least quick comical relief. But, no, the director offers us an outdated story, predictable and boring scenes with cringe romances which were very awful. Finally, Saamy Square comes down to nothing but damaging and destroying the reputations of its prequel. I still couldn’t understand why Vikram agreed to do something like this and degrade a character which was highly appreciated and made him a Star. Do yourself a favour and avoid it!
