As Trisha truns 38, here are 10 films that made her a influential female actor in South India


It may not have been as strong as the other strong female characters she played later, but the success of this film launched her on a successful arc. Her onscreen chemistry with Vijay became a huge hit at the time. But, inside, she is this conservative girl, who doesn’t defy her family. Trisha took the breath of the audience away as a working woman with deep secrets and suppressed desires. She made being dumb look so adorable and desirable quality. She has a doting brother, who is willing to move heaven and earth to fulfil the wishes of his sister. Vinnaithaandi Varnuvaayaa

Trisha was a revelation in this masterpiece, which would go down in the history as one of the best movies of all time in the history of Tamil cinema. Her role is the main source of humour in this film, which stars Mahesh Babu in the lead. At that time, nobody could have thought that she would go on to become a top actor in the south Indian film industry. And in the process, her character undergoes a significant transformation. She is capable of defending her own honour. © IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd This film was sheer magic, which director Gautham Menon failed to recreate when he tried to remake it in Hindi as Ekk Deewana Tha.

The film is sort of a love letter to the simple elegance that Trisha personifies. Thankfully, she did not stick to her original plans. Her character is flawed. And that contradiction leads to a lot of drama. Despite her conservative outlook, she dares to fall in love with a man from a different community.

Trisha is one of the reasons why ‘loosu ponnu’ (crazy girl) archetype became so famous with the mainstream films down south. But, the catch is he doesn’t approve of her sister’s boyfriend, who she wants to marry. Trisha plays a strong independent woman, heading a corporate team in a big city. She sort of rejects to marry her lover if he wants to do it to save her from the gossip and judgements of society. Also, she becomes one of the main reasons that change the direction of the hero’s journey. And she would have upped the ante in this film, where she plays a highly pampered girl, who doesn’t have to put an effort to get what she wants. The film entirely rests on Trisha effortless performance. Ghilli

It is the remake of the Telugu hit Okkadu. Unlike most films of the time, her role is not to be a hero’s arm candy. She arrests our attention by simply being on the screen. She is neither a perfect lover nor an obedient daughter. And she movingly brings out the turmoil in the heart of her character torn between her true love and her marriage to another man.

Trisha Krishnan turns 38 today. She plays the damsel in distress who ends up falling in love with the man who fights for her. She only accepts the hero’s wedding proposal when he says he wants to marry her for love. Varshamhttps://images.indianexpress.com/2020/08/1×1.png

It becomes a very important film in the careers of both Trisha and Prabhas. The highly regressive title aside, the film has several other merits that are worth appreciating. She plays the role of a single mother, who is more progressive than the male lead, played by Ajith. From being a girl who follows what she is told to an independent woman who makes her own decisions and deal with the consequences. As a matter of fact, she had said that she had no interest to pursue a career in acting as her loyalty completely lies with modelling during an episode of a now-defunct talk show called Naiyandi Darbar. Otherwise, it would have been such a great loss to the film fraternity. Click here to join our channel (@indianexpress) and stay updated with the latest headlines

It is perhaps Trisha’s first film, where she played a modern girl, who doesn’t aspire to satisfy society’s definition of a ‘good girl.’ It is the story of a father, played by a wonderful Prakash Raj. Again, this film was one-time magic that couldn’t be repeated in its remakes. She is her own person, who makes some harsh decisions at times. It is a father’s journey, who huffs and puffs as he struggles to come to terms with the fact that his daughter has now grown up and she is capable of making her own decisions. Hard as it is to believe, the first time Trisha walked into our collective consciousness, it was a television commercial for a child nutrition product.

The literal translation of the title of this Selvaraghavan film is ‘women say something when they mean something else.’ In other words, no means yes or vice versa. But, the onscreen chemistry of Trisha and Prabhas and action sequences made this film a huge hit and Trisha a household name with the Telugu movie audiences. It is a landmark film in Trisha’s career. It is a simple story of two strong men fighting over a beautiful girl. Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana

Again, Trisha plays a girl from a traditional family.
