Samantha has evolved as a fine actress over the years. She started out as an actress who looked very cute but over the years she has become one of the most reliable actress in both Tamil and Telugu Cinema. She has proved herself both as an actress and a star. While Telugu cinema sees her as the star she was fabulous as Vembu in super deluxe. Simply Sammu: I underestimated Samantha. We all did. But she’s been quite a revelation as Vembu in Super Deluxe. Playing Vembu is like walking a tightrope. But she pulls it off with assured confidence. Perhaps it’s the creator’s magic. But there’s only so much a creator can do. The rest is upto the performer. Even as we get ready to judge her enthusiasm makes sure that we empathize with her instead. I have travelled with Vembu once in real life. To see her on screen was a gratifying experience.
Now she is teaming up with actress Lakshmi for another fantasy comedy film. It is based on the Korean film Miss Granny. It is about how a 70 year old finds herself in the body of her 20 year old self. It is directed by Nandhini Reddy.
