Chiranjeevi – Rudraveena, Manavoori Pandavulu and Gang Leader.
Aamir Khan – Sarfarosh, Earth and Dil Chahta Hai.
Kamal Haasan – a ton of films of which you can narrow it down to his most oddball movies like Aalavandhan (Abhay), Anbe Sivam, Michael Madan Kamarajan and this roll is hard to conclude.

The selected movies are mostly from the 90’s and on. The acting abilities were the main criteria of the list and also movies which are not just arty. Coz, when an actor brings in his finest work to good and also entertaining scripts (Forrest Gump is the kind I’m talking about), that’s when the movie watcher enjoys it the most.
We haven’t included other greats like Sivaji Ganeshan and Raj Kapoor for instance because we believe we haven’t seen enough.
