Vijay Sethupathi As A Villain, Ranked

Team FC

Petta (2019)

Streaming on: Netflix

Tamil cinema doesn’t have many strong villains who go head-to-head with stars. That is probably why it was interesting to see Sethupathi fight Rajinikanth in this action entertainer. 

Vikram (2022)

Streaming on: Disney+ Hotstar, Zee5

Vikram was his last outing as a villain and arguably not only do none of his antagonist roles share similarities in writing but his looks and mannerisms are also largely varied.

Uppena (2021)

Streaming on: Netflix

Between 2019 and 2021, Sethupathi’s Jithu and Kotagiri Sesha Raayanam share a huge age gap. If Jithu is the son of an aged politician, Uppena's Raayanam is the old father of an 18-year-old girl.

Master (2021)

Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video

Though Lokesh Kanagaraj didn’t fully crack the complexity of Sethupathi’s antagonist in Vikram, the knots are superbly placed in Master. The concept of Vikram Vedha where there is no good and bad is driven up a notch in this film.

Vikram Vedha (2017)

Streaming on: ZEE5

Vedha is Sethupathi’s coolest villain. It is not that he doesn’t roam around with knives and guns, but he can also win your trust with his charm and swag. Like us, even Madhavan’s Vikram couldn’t help but listen to his stories in trance-like stage.
