Last year Kavya Madhavan had some good movies like Ananthabhadram and a hit in Kochi Rajavu. Though she acted in off beat films like Sheelabati and Annorikkal, she was not able to win the State Award for the best actress, which instead went to Navya Nair, who is currently expanding her range. Still she won the film critics award for her performance in Ananthabhadram and Sheelabati
Unlike other actresses like Gopika, Navya and Bhavana who are running between Tamil and Malayalam, Kavya is very focussed on Malayalam movies though she is not averse to doing movies in other languages and is waiting for the right offer.While she is waiting for the right offer, she got to do movies in the style of that classic, Pulival Kalyanam.
This year she had two releases, Kilukkam Kilukikkam and Lion. The sequel to Kilukkam was ripped apart by critics, but since critics don’t pay pocket money to kids, they made it a big success. Usually Dileep and Kavya are considered a lucky pair and most of their movies have become commercial successes and for their recent movie they went to New Zealand to picturize some songs.
Now coming soon are two films in which she plays the heroine. The first one titled Athishayan is directed by Vinayan and has Sunil and Mukesh. This movie is the story of a boy with amazing brain powers and also has the speciality that Jackie Shroff plays a cameo as a scientist.
Writer-Director Lohithadas thinks that Kavya is a talented and sensual actress. This realization came to him after Meera Jasmine backed out of his current Malayalam film half way. Now according to reports she will be the heroine in Lohithadas’s new movie which has Jayaram as the hero.
While we know that Kavya is a talented actress (Mizhi Randilum, Gauri Shankaram), it is sad that she has to do movies like Kilukkam Kilukilukkam.. It will do her good to follow the path of Bhavana who has impressed everyone with her first Tamil Movie, Chittiram Pesuthadi, without exposing.
