  1. Baba

    Baba is a 2002 Tamil fantasy-action film starring and written by Rajnikanth and directed by Suresh Krishna. The film's cast included Manisha Koirala, Vijayakumar, M. N. Nambiar, Goundamani, Sujatha, Karunas, Ashish Vidyarthi, Amrish Puri, Sayaji Shinde and Riyaz Khan. Guest roles and special appearances were performed by Ramya Krishnan, Sarath Babu, Lawrence Raghavendra, Prabhu Deva, Radha Ravi and Nassar. Soundtrack and background music were composed by A. R. Rahman. The film's story is about a carefree young atheist, Baba, who is a reincarnation of a failed saint from the Himalayas. After several twists and problems caused by corrupt local politicians, Baba is taken to Mahavatar Babaji, whom Baba was a follower of in his last life. Baba gets tested by the deity and is given seven chances of wishes; the test is that if he uses any one of the wishes for his own personal desires, he would have to take many more births for him to get rid of the Karma.
