Blessy was willing to tolerate her tantrums to finish Kolkotta News. Shyamaprasad could not think of any one else in Ore Kadal. When it comes to movies with substance, Meera Jasmine stands above the rest in Malayalam. The question then is how come a girl who had family problems, gossip published regularly associating her with Lohithadas, S J Surya, and every other male, able to reach this level where Sathyan Anthikkad is willing to pay any amount to get her to star against Mohanlal?
That’s when you see how smart this girl really is. At a time when Kavya, Meera, Navya and Bhavana were all doing the same kind of movies, she made some decisions which paid of well. First she stopped acting in C.I.D Moosa, Inspector Garuda type movies which itself moved her one step away from the crowd. Second, she had no qualms in acting with superstars, but not in the Shafi/Anwar Rasheed type movies, but ones with serious directors. In those movies she proved that she can match anyone with her acting skills and that was idea was cemented by movies like Achuvinte Amma , Padom Onnu: Oru Vilapam and Kasthuriman where she alone held the film together.
Movies like Ore Kadal are not made often and it takes courage to act as an adulteress wife in this stage of the career. While rest of the crowd are trying to preserve their goody images, Meera was bold enough to try characters which exploit her range. She has learned very early on that she is an actress who has to portray different characters, instead of doing cookie cutter images of the same character in different movies.
Meera has also bagged a crucial role in Shaji N. Karun’s forthcoming film Kutty Sranku, where she is pitted against the one and only Mammootty. The film is expected to start rolling in April.[Meera- The Busy bee]
There are lessons which Kavya and Navya can adopt before it is too late.
