Vijayakanth is one of very few Tamil speaking actors to have acted only in Tamil movies throughout his career, though his movies have been dubbed into Telugu and Hindi. Many of his recent movies contain nationalist plots about a terrorist, corrupt Indian politician or a mafia don troubling the Indian people, with Vijayakanth getting back at the troublemakers single-handedly. He is also famous for acting in village oriented movies, many of them having huge success across Tamil Nadu. His first film was Inikkum Ilamai (1979) in the role of a villain. His subsequent films Agal Vilakku (1979), Neerottam (1980) and Saamanthippoo (1980) were not commercially successful. He then had success with Doorathu Idi Muzhakkam (1980) and Sattam Oru Iruttarai (1981), directed by S. A. Chandrasekhar; most of his movies are with him. He is nicknamed “Captain” after the movie Captain Prabhakaran (1991), which was his 100th film.
