Annamalai was released in 1992 and was a blockbuster hit that it ran for 175 days in theatres and was the highest-grossing film in Tamil cinema until 1995.

4Aandavan solran, Arunachalam mudikiran!

This dialogue for Arunachalam with the bangle gesture was just so charismatic and this movie went on to win three Tamil Nadu State Film Awards, including an award for Best Film.

5Vashi! Black sheep, Mehhhhh…

Well, this dialogue is a common one amongst Rajini‘s fans. Enthiran marked the debut of Legacy Effects studio (which was responsible for the film’s prosthetic make-up and animatronics) in Indian cinema.

6Pere keta chumma adhuruthuleh!

Sivaji; The boss was converted into 3D and released on 12th December 2012 as Sivaji 3D for his birthday. The runtime of the 3D version was shorter than the original, cut to 155 minutes, and released amidst moderate fanfare and fared positively, critically and commercially.

8Naa oru thadava sonna, nooru thadava sonna maathiri!

Well if you think, which movie broke Annamalai’s record? It was another Superstar hit, Bashaa that ran for nearly 15 months in theatres. Rajinikanth won the Filmfans Association Award and the Cinema Express Award for Best Actor for his star-studded performance.

9Gatham-gatham, Mudinjadhu mudhinjipochi!

Did you know? The “Baba symbol” which was so famous back then was not just any symbol but a hand position called Apana Mudra in yoga which stands for “detoxification and purification”.


Rajinikanth‘s English line “How is it?” (pronounced “Owwizzit?”) in Veera became immensely popular, as did the response “Super” (pronounced “Soopar”). What? Do you still come across this dialogue among your friends?

11Kya re? Setting’a? Vengai maave vothaile nikke, thill iruntha motthamaa vangele!

Kaala was the first Indian film ever to be released in Saudi Arabia, following the country lifting its ban on public theatres in December 2017.
