Top 10 Mass Introduction Scenes in Kollywood:
Before delving into this post, let’s set aside any fan wars involving comparisons such as Rajini-Kamal, Vijay-Ajith, or Dhanush-Simbu. The content here is unrelated to the image of the heroes or their movies. Instead, it focuses solely on the introduction scenes in Kollywood that seamlessly blend class and mass elements. This is a subjective viewpoint, and while your opinions are welcome in the comments section, let’s refrain from engaging in debates about which actor or scene is superior. Recognizing that there are numerous outstanding introductions in Kollywood, we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 mass introduction scenes in recent times.
10. Bobby Simha in Jigarthanda
“Jigarthanda” stands as a masterpiece crafted by the talented Karthik Subbaraj. Films of this caliber come around only once in a decade. Initially, there was speculation that it might be a Korean remake of “Dirty Carnival” (2006), but the movie turned out to be a unique creation. Bobby Simha’s portrayal of “Assault” Sethu is unparalleled; he not only inhabited the role but delivered a mind-blowing performance that earned him the National Award for Best Supporting Actor in Tamil. Esteemed figures like Rajini, Vijay, Shankar, and Mani Ratnam praised both Bobby Simha’s acting and Karthik Subburaj’s direction for presenting such a cinematic masterpiece.
In the introduction scene, Bobby Simha, as Assault Sethu, chillingly murders a writer who had penned an article about him in a local magazine. The camera work, Bobby Simha’s mannerisms, and the background music (BGM) by Santhosh Narayanan collectively contribute to making this scene an exceptional introduction for Bobby Simha as Assault Sethu. This movie serves as a quintessential example of a classic cult film in the realm of Kollywood, and Santhosh Narayanan’s brilliant background music is a significant asset to its overall impact.
9. Ajith in Mankatha
This marks Ajith’s comeback after facing setbacks with two previous films, Aegan and Asal, and holds special significance as his 50th movie. Taking a bold step, he entrusted Venkat Prabhu with the directorial reins, despite Prabhu having only three films to his credit, including Chennai 600028. Venkat Prabhu capitalized on the opportunity brilliantly, delivering a super hit for Ajith, a feat not seen since Billa in 2007. The film achieved remarkable success at the box office, elevating Ajith’s popularity nationwide. The introduction scene, where Ajith intervenes to rescue Aravind from an imminent threat, is a standout moment. Ajith’s charismatic screen presence, coupled with his salt-and-pepper look and Yuvan’s powerful background music, made this introduction truly special for both the audience and his fans.
