In our third piece of the year-end round-up series, Surendhar MK looks back at the ’10 Best Performances of 2016′ that were memorable, held our attention and earned our respect.
9. Guru Somasundaram – Joker
Raju Murugan’s political satire Joker was steered by Guru Somasundaram’s stellar performance as Mannar Mannan. He made audiences invest in his role deeply with razor-sharp dialogues and entertaining idiosyncrasies. From being a terrific supporting actor in films like Aaranya Kaandam, Jigarthanda and Pandianaadu to shouldering a unanimously appreciated film in Joker, Guru Somasundaram has come a long way. The most underrated actor of the year.
