Happy Birthday Siddharth: Best films of the powerhouse performer

Siddharth is one of the brilliant performer known for his work not only in the Tamil film industry but also in Telugu, Hindi, English, and Malayalam movies. We can surely define him as a pan Indian actor. Born and brought up in Tamil Nadu, but having received his education from New Delhi, Siddharth is an actor par excellence. The birthday boy has been part of several popular films.

The star had won millions of hearts with his acting prowess. He has been known to don several hats, as screenwriter, producer and playback singer. On the special occasion of his birthday, let’s take a look at some of his memorable movies:

Striker (2010)

Also featuring Aditya Pancholi, Anupam Kher among others, Striker has the distinction of being the first Indian film to be released simultaneously in theatres as well as on Youtube. Be that as it may, the film revolves around the carrom-board game and leaving aside a few carrom-board moments in a bunch of movies, we almost never had a mainstream movie focused solely on the game.

Gruham (2017)

The film has been shot simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu, Gruham primarily revolves around Dr. Krish (Siddharth), a neurosurgeon who has moved into a new home and soon they have neighbours next door and both the neighbours get along very well. Complicated, but full of its own terrorizing, frightening moments, Gruham will give you jitters.

Bommarillu (2006)

One of the flagship movies of Siddharth’s career, Bommarillu is a beautiful story of a father-son relationship told in a coming-of-age manner. Siddhu (Siddharth) belongs to a well-off family and he has had all the material needs he ever wanted. But an overbearing, nosy father Aravind irritates him and Siddhu wants to make his own choices with career and love, without the intervention of his father.

Rang De Basanti (2006)

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Rang De Basanti had hit all the right notes as far as an idealistic movie is concerned. Not only did it move the masses against the evils of corruption and the lust for power by a bunch of politicians, but it also busted many myths on the “apparent” political and religious divides of the civil society.

Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi (2012)

Another Siddharth’s movie which was shot simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu, Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi also features Amala Paul opposite Siddharth as a protagonist.

For actor Siddharth, this birthday is even more special as the makers of Maha Samudram unveiled the first look poster featuring the actor from the film. The poster that is now going viral on social media features the birthday boy Siddharth in a calm and composed avatar. The film, Maha Samudram, will mark Siddharth’s return to the Tollywood industry. The actor was looking for the right opportunity to return.
