Team FC

Alaipayuthey (2000)

Madhavan starred as Karthik, who marries Shakthi (Shalini) against their respective families' wishes and encounter trouble navigating this new-found relationship they are in, something they were not prepared for at all.

Kannathil Muthamittal (2002)

Set during the Sri Lankan Civil War, the film follows a couple (Madhavan and Simran) who comply with their adopted daughter's desire to seek out her birth family, a journey which requires them to travel into one of the world's deadliest combat zones.

Anbe Sivam (2003)

In the Sundar C. film, Madhavan starred as Anbarasu opposite Kamal Haasan's Nallasivam, two starkly-dissimilar men thrown together by circumstances who find that there may be more to them coming together.

Aayitha Ezhuthu (2004)

Madhavan played the goon Inba Sekar, who comes up against the ambitions of student leader Michael (Suriya) and the carefree Arjun (Siddharth) and embarks upon a dangerous route to do his boss' bidding.

Rang De Basanti (2006)

Madhavan played Flight Lieutenant Ajay Rathod, whose death in a MiG-21 crash becomes the catalyst for his slacker friends to take up cudgels against the establishment, which is seeking to make Rathod the scapegoat for the fiasco.

Irudhi Suttru / Saala Khadoos (2016)

A Tamil-Hindi bilingual directed by Sudha Kongara, Madhavan played the role of a washed-up boxer who decides to coach a young amateur after being ignored by the association. He also co-wrote and co-produced the film.

Vikram Vedha (2017)

The Pushkar-Gayathri film pitted Madhavan's ruthless, righteous cop Vikram against criminal mastermind Vedha (Vijay Sethupathi), and the actor found reserves of frustration and stoicism to make an effective case for the police officer.
