One of the finest actors in modern Indian film is the multi-talented Vijay Sethupathi. Whether he plays the antagonist, the protagonist,a cameo, or a supporting character, he always excels in any role he takes on.
The talented actor has great acclaim in the Telugu states for his range of performances. Let's look at the top five Vijay Sethupathi films available in Telugu.
VIKRAM - Hotstar & Zee5
"Vikram" is directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. Kamal Hassan, Fahad Faasil, and Vijay Sethupathi played lead roles in this film.
In this film "Makkal Selvan," Vijay Sethupathi has played the role of a doctor who is also a ruthless drug peddler named "Santhanam." Vijay flaunts his swagger in a dad-bod body and portrays the villainsm with ease.
The finest sequence in the movie is perhaps Vijay Sethupathi's entrance, in which he goes around shirtless while putting his arms around his waist. He even outperforms Kamal Haasan and Fahadh in several scenes.
The way Santhanam is portrayed brilliantly captures the brutality of a drug dealer who also harbors strong feelings for his family.
Master - Zee5
In the movie "Master," Vijay Sethupathi portrayed Bhavani, the main antagonist. Bhavani's character in this movie centres around his trucking business and the smuggling of expensive commodities.
Vijay Sethupathi's characteristics and personality have been well utilized by director Lokesh Kanagaraj; Bhavani's action sequences in the film "Master" will have viewers on the edge of their seats.
In the manner he offers two minutes to defeat his opponents or else kill them, Bhavani reminds us of Rajini from Narasimha.
Bhavani’s face-off with an alcoholic professor J.D. (Thalapathy Vijay) elevates the film to the next level, their verbal spat is the frosting on the cake.
Simply put, it's difficult to picture any other actor portraying the role of "Bhavani." That was the influence Vijay Sethupathi had on the picture.
Petta - Netflix
Jithu was a rowdy character that Vijay Sethupathi portrayed in Rajinikanth's 2019 film 'Petta.' The talented actor once again excelled in his role thanks to his diverse acting abilities.
Jithu is a thug who was raised by his uncle Singaar Singh in a small hamlet. At a boys' hostel where Rajinikanth ( Kaali ) serves as warden, Jithu frequently causes problems. Jithu and Kaali soon begin to clash as the latter tries to limit the former.
The crowd gets goosebumps watching the fight scenes between Vijay Sethupathi and Rajinikanth. Despite Rajni's triumph, Vijay charms the audience with his captivating performance and manly screen presence.
He excels in the emotional scenes as the fatherless boy in the movie. The audience would cry seeing him portray his feelings on screen in the movie's conclusion when he discovers that Petta deceived him.
Chiavari Vyavasaya Daarudu - Sony Liv
M. Manikandan is the director of the Tamil drama film Chivari vyavasaya Daardu. While most of his village sells its property for financial gain, the story centers on an old man who farms.
Ramaiah, portrayed by Vijay Sethupathi, is a guy who tragically lost his beloved, he lives a nomadic lifestyle, is traumatized, and travels to temples barefoot. Ramaiah, according to the people, has become mad.
Vijay had a fantastic performance as Ramaiah, regardless of whether he was sane or mad. He portrays the feelings of a helpless guy who loses himself and waits for God's command to face death. Ramaiah is a follower of Kumara Swamy, and he eventually encounters his deity on a high shrine.
The movie simultaneously tells the tale of the old farmer, exposing the power abuse and exploitation of capitalists. Despite Ramaiah's little screen time, the influence of his character on the film is enormous.
Uppena - Netflix
Rayanam, a powerful Zamindar played by Vijay Sethupathi, is known for prioritizing reputation and prestige over all else. He exhibits the kind of powerful wrath that one might see in Andhra Pradesh's countryside.
"Rayanam" is an ardently orthodox guy who maintains tight house rules. He adores and cares for his daughter deeply, but when she develops feelings for a person of the underclass, things start to go south.
When Rayanam finds out about his daughter's relationship, he loses his cool since he perceives it as a danger to his clan and status. Sethupathi perfectly portrayed all the enraged feelings of a man who will do anything to protect his pride, even if it means engaging in honor killings.
The film's finale will demonstrate to the viewers how much they despise Rayanam's persona for his cruelty. But eventually, he comes to grips with his errors and resolves to make a fresh start in life. The overall significance of Rayanam's role in this movie is amply fulfilled by Sethupathi's acting.
