Actor Vivek Photo GalleryVivekanathan is a Tamil film comedian from India. In contrast to other comedians in Tamil cinema, Vivek is more of a satirist than a slapstick comedian.   His movies draw humor from scenes of daily life in Tamil Nadu (especially Chennai) and the surrounding regions.

His jokes often relate to serious subjects, such as bribery, over-population, and political corruption among other things. He is more conscientious and his comedy has more serious undertones than that of his contemporaries.

He often targets hypocrisy in Indian society and politics and uses satire well to point out contradictions which are often taken for granted by people. He is also well known for his readiness to spoof almost any celebrity. He is mostly popular with urban people as his comedy is of more immediate relevance to them.

In rural areas, he is less popular than other comedians such as Vadivelu, Senthil, and Goundamani. He has starred in numerous films since the early 90s as a supporting actor and now as a main comedian.

He has entertained many in his most noted films such as Run, Namma Veetu Kalyanam, Dhool, M. Kumaran son of Mahalakshmi, and many others. He is famously called as Chinna Kalaivanar for his message-oriented comedies.

Vivek will appear in other films to come. He is most expected in the upcoming film Sivaji starring Rajinikanth and Shriya Saran. Vivek is playing the lead in the movie “Solli Adippen. Recently the CD release for Solli Adippen was held and Superstar Rajnikanth, Director Shankar, Director K. Balachander presided the function.

  7. Respected Mr: Vivekananthan(vivek),
    Hope that good projects are going on,I had seen your Talk during Kamal 50 brammantavizha through Vijay tv, in that Praising speech you said that core commette members has give a request to Tamilnadu C.M Mr:karunanidhi to change the Eldams Road name into Dr Padmsree Kamal Hassan’s name.What is the Logic in it Sir? As always you are Praising Dr:Abdul Kalam & Late Valluvor to the public, in that tongue you said these words.As an actor kamal is ok but in fornt of the society who is he? just call to your mind kamal’s life then you decide wether to change the name Eldoms.Sall i have your e-mail id or Mob no:(vivek’s) then i will inform you the truth. Kindly recall the request from C.M.
    With Regards,

  8. Hello Mr.Vivek:

    Hearty wishes to you. Am a vivid fan of yours. Never the less I have always admired your satirist roles in the tamil movies. Your personal intellectuality has always made me feel great about. Infact I keep waiting for your programmes on the television. The topics you choose and the way you present among the audience is praise worthy. I remember the interview you had conducted with our former president Dr. Abdul Kalam. It was joy to watch and I certainly hope the former president enjoyed interacting with you as well. There are many movies which I cannot mention for obvious resons wherein you have made people to laugh and think as well. Hats off to you for taking such intitiative. Yesterday, out of great expectation I watched your movie “Singam” I felt very disappointed. The comedy track was really very sad and pitiable state. As a well wisher I request you to please pay attention in selecting roles in future. All the best.

  31. Hi Vivek sir, I am your fan, I have a suggestion for a new comedy. In Tamil the word Thiru is sacred as most temple towns like Thirupathi, Thirunageswaram, Thirunallar etc. start with Thiru. So the work of a thief called “Thirudan” in tamil is also sacred. Based on this create a comedy of your own.
    Thank you sir.

    The major killer of our country is Plastic Papers.
    It causes Global warming, Ruins the Soil (Soil infertility) and reduces the Rain fall.
    As you are aware, Plastic papers blocks all the sanitary pipes which leads to stagnant water resulting in ‎Dengue fever & Flooding in streets.

    I your Movies and Public Speech, I request you to kindly speak about the negative effects of using Plastic papers and appeal to our people to stop using Plastic Papers.
    Let’s save Tamilnadu & India from Global warming.
