List of notable spoofs[edit]

  • Singam film series– The style of a single police officer with supernatural strength is parodied.
    • Singam - Singam's home village of Nallur is renamed Singarayakonda in this film. The character of Soundarapanadi (Singam's father) played by Radha Ravi in the original is renamed Jaggam and is portrayed by Prudhviraj.
    • Singam II – The setting of South Africa was reused from this film. The character of Danny is similar to that of Lingam from this film as they are both mafias and drug lords.
