Top Tamil Heroines

December 27, 2006
In a male dominated industry, unfortunately there are no performances from actresses that can be termed superlative. One can only list performances that are just average. However, Shriya Reddy, though not a conventional heroine, stands out. She can be compared only to actresses like Smita Patil, Shabana Azmi and Nandita Das; an actress of immense talent and courage.

Shriya Reddy

After watching Shriya Reddy as an uncouth, venom spewing slum dweller in Thimiru, it is hard to believe that she was once a VJ who spoke only English. So realistic was her performance and body language in the film. Thimiru is followed by Veyyil in which she is once again acting as a woman belonging to the lower classes of society. In tattered clothes and sans make up, she is simply amazing. Her roles in both these films are just small roles.
