Pavithra vs. Nammavar (1994)
Verdict: Pavithra and Nammavar both released on Diwali, and both the films received negative response at the box office! However, they were still able to win the attention of the critics. Pavithra won the the Tamil Nadu State Award for Best Film. Nammavar went on to win the National Award for Best Feature Film in Tamil. You guess the winner!
Mugavaree vs. Hey Ram (2000)
Verdict: Both these movies received mixed response at the box office- they were never termed as ‘hit’ films. But Hey Ram clearly made more of a mark.
Pammal K. Sambandam Vs. Red (2002)
Verdict: 2002 saw both Kamal Haasan and Ajith don similar roles. Both the actors played local dons. While Kamal Haasan‘s rib-tickling film turned out to be a success. Ajith’s film Red, bombed at the box-office.
These comparisons may suggest that Kamal Haasan will be the winner in the upcoming clash as well. But you can never tell what works at the box office!
