Here is the list of top movies of Suriya.
Suriya had two different looks in the film and the actor aced in the diametrically opposite shades. The film was a huge blockbuster upon the release and even the dubbed version scored big in Telugu. With Ghajini, Suriya became one of the bankable stars in Tamil cinema who also got a big Telugu market.
24 is a Tamil family entertainer film written and directed by Vikram Kumar. The film features Suriya and Samantha in the lead roles. ‘24’ is the story of a watch, with which the owner can travel to the past and future and control the time.

However, his twin brother Athreya (Suriya, again), a dreaded don, wants the watch for himself, and therefore attacks his brother, killing his wife in the process.
Suriya’s transformation as a commercial hero was complete when he starred in this Cop flick directed by Hari. Playing the titular role Suriya is a bundle of energy throughout the film and is the heart and soul of the movie.
While Suriya only played a second fiddle and soft characters in his initial set of films, Bala showcased the raw and rustic side of the actor with Nandha. Suriya played a youngster who gets released from a borstal and tries to cope up with the society with the guidance of his Godfather. This film helped Suriya to grab the attention of leading filmmakers that he can pull off any character.
Hitherto known for playing closer to life and realistic characters, ‘Ayan’ helped Suriya come out of the stereotype and established himself as a commercial star.
