Fans here is the intresting article on our Kollywood Heroes and their hits and misses in the year 2013. Following is the report based on an article published by The Hindu

Rajinikanth : Superstar's Kochadaiyaan which was scheduled to release this year missed out but Superstar's Endhiran box office collection is still the record to beat.

Kamal Haasan: After crossing several hurdles and challenges, Ullaganayagan's Vishwaroopam went on to be a massive hit grossing 30 crores in Tamil Nadu box office and counting the Bollywood and International release the collection amounts of 85 crores which makes him "The Man of the Box Office for the year 2013"

Thala Thalapathy - Ajith and Vijay 
To the question of whether it was Thala or Thalapathy the runner up to Kamal Haasan , without a shred of doubt it has to be Thala Ajith for this year. The reason being his movie Arrambam and it's collection. The movie grossed 35 crores in Tamil Nadu box office alone and add to the collections from Andhra the movie amassed a total collection of 65 crores.

From Vijay's point of view his last year release Thupakki is still his biggest success in the last 4 years which grossed a mammoth 80 crores. But this year due to several off screen issues his Thalaivaa movie failed to release on time. Though the movie had been sold for 50 crores it only collected 13 crores in Tamil Nadu box office.

After Ajith it was Surya who rocked the Box Office with his Singam 2 movie which grossed 60 crores and fetched him the third rank after Kamal Haasan and Ajith.

Chiyaan Vikram 2012 release Thandavam slightly tarnished the commercial image of the actor and this year's release David (Tamil Dubbed) failed to run in theatres even for few days. The actor however is currently spilling his heart out in Shankar' Ai which is currently slated for April 14th 2014 release.

Between STR and Dhanush who stood next to Vikram last year, STR did not have a single movie release this year but currently holds a untitled project with Pandiyaraj, Sattrendu Maruthu Vannillai with Gautham Vasudev Menon, an untitled project with Selvaraghavan and Vada Chennai with Vetrimaran and another project with Thotti Jaya director and Vaalu and Vettaimannan also being in the pipeline.

Dhanush's Bollywood debut Raanjhnaa rocked the box office and made it to the illustrious 100 crore club. But the tamil version of the movie Ambikapathy netted only 8 crores. Though Dhanush's Maryan fetched the actor critical acclaim the movie failed at the box office and his Naiyaandi was also huge let down.

Vishal after repeated failure struck gold at the box office with his Pandiya Nadu movie which amounted to 40 crores in total and his Pattathu Yaanai also did decent business with a collection of 20 crores.

Arya starred in several multi-starrer movies this year like Arrambam, Raja Rani and Settai. The actor's Raja Rani alongside Nayanthara and Jai grossed 30 crores while his Settai movie may have been a flop but still made a collection of 20 crores. Arya's much expected movie of the year Irandam Ulagam however bombed very severely at the box office.

Siva Karthikeyan had a dream run this year with all his three films  – Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga, Ethir Neechal and Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam – turning out to be blockbusters.

Vijay Sethupathi tasted  huge success in Soodhu Kavvum and  moderate success in Idharkuthane Asaipattai Balakumara. The actor's Soodhu Kavvum is considered by many as the best movie of the year.

Jayam’ Ravi's Aadhi Bhagavan which opened to huge expectations failed to impress at the box office.

Jiiva had two releases in David and Endrendrum Punnagai, the later is well on its way to be massive blockbuster.
