While she started off as the quintessential heroine, we know that Jyothika didn’t explore her full potential until she started showcasing her acting chops in some unique films. The actress is as commercial yet unconventional in her own way. Despite sharing screen space with stalwarts like Kamal Haasan, Rajinikanth and superstars like her husband Suriya, the actress has managed to showcase her talent and stand tall amidst such huge stars.
And for the Tamil version, we definitely wouldn’t question their choice – which was Jyothika. Well, the actress knows how to weave her path in a male centric Tamil industry and has some interesting strong portrayals to her credit in the past. On the occasion of her birthday, we at Bollywood Hungama will trace the journey of Jyothika and her female centric films.
Well the actress’ brush with female centric cinema started at an early stage of career and she decided to risk it as being the naïve and young college student in Snegithiye. The film, which is heavily inspired by the Marathi thriller Bindhaast, featured her alongside Sharbani Mukherjee with Tabu in a prominent role. The actress, who is falsely accused as an accomplice to a murder along with her friend Radhika, portrayed the role to the T. The film was later also dubbed in Hindi as Friendship. It has remained to be one of the most underrated roles of the actress.
This would be probably be a silent movie for Jyothika, even if it wasn’t for others. Jyothika plays the role of the one with hearing and speech impairment in this film which features her opposite Prithviraj. The role was probably one of the most challenging ones for the actress because she had to convey every emotion without speaking a single word. The film went on to gain mass and critical acclaim. With this film, Jyothika yet again proved her mettle in the genre of female centric films as she won appreciation for her powerful portrayal of Archana.

There is a reason why this film is special in more ways than one. Firstly, it marked the return of Jyothika in Tamil film industry after six years. Secondly, it is a remake of an already successful Malayalam film called How Old Are You. Portraying the role of a simple housewife, the film’s story is about self-discovery of a woman, who had probably left her real and confident self behind amidst the chaotic and mundane life. The film, quite literally, was also a comeback of the confident Jyothika who had won hearts even before the sabbatical. The film was said to be a must watch for all Indian women.
