Revathi is an actress who has consistently made a mark as a seasoned performer in Tamil Cinema. Let’s look at the top 5 Revathi films during the golden 80’s period.
Mouna Raagam : Every time we talk about love triangles Mouna Raagam always comes to our mind. There’s Mohan and Karthik. But the crux of the whole plot revolves around Revathi. It is her loss and redemption which makes the story an eternal classic. Marriage is forced on her and she moves away at first but eventually she realizes the love of the man she had married. Illayaraja takes over as the film reaches a happy conclusion.
Punnagai Mannan : Punnagai Mannan is another classic with Revathi. This time her presence makes Kamal find his lost love. Eventually he falls for her and we hope for a happy union of two lovebirds but fate has a different plan as the love story reaches a tragic conclusion.
Aan Paavam : Revathi plays a dumb girl in one of the greatest Tamil comedy of all time. Pandian and Pandiarajan join the fun as brothers. The film never falters and keeps the humour intact from start to finish leading to a splendid climax which is still celebrated.
Pagal Nilavu : This is probably the 80’s version of Amarkalam where Murali plays Sathyaraj’s trusted aide and falls in love with Revathi. She reforms him and makes him a better man. A major highlight of the film is Illayaraja’s music. This is Mani Ratnam’s first film in Tamil.
Vaidhehi Kathirundhal : In this film Revathi plays a widow who unites two lovers. The highlight of the film is once again Illayaraja’s music. Vijaykanth plays the hero. Here both the leads lose out on their personal life but unite to make two young lovers succeed in their own love story.
