Selvaraghavan’s women have always been different from the other heroines in Tamil Cinema. let us look at his best women characters on his birthday.
Richa Gangopadhyay as Yamini ( Mayakkam Enna ) : Yamini is no ordinary woman. She moulds her man into a better human being after he is broken and fragile. But she refuses to give up on. It is her unbelievable strength which gives Karthik the confidence to pursue his ambition. Karthik acknowledges Yamini’s role in her life by calling her the iron lady. There’s a saying ” Behind every successful man there is a woman”. In Yamini’s case it is true.
Reema Sen as Anitha Pandiyan ( Aiyrathil Oruvan ) : Reema Sen was a surprise in Aiyrathil Oruvan. Her transition to the primary antagonist has to be seen to be believed. She is the one holding the reins of the story until the climax. The faceoff between Reema Sen and Parthipen is one of the most sensous faceoff’s ever.
Sneha as Krishnaveni ( Pudhupettai ) : Sneha plays a prostitute who is unapologetic about who she is. She seeks a second chance through Dhanush who initially let’s go of her for a fair skinned woman. Eventually he marries her which leads to the father- baby conversation at the garbage.
Sonia Agarwal as Divya ( Kadhal Kondein) : Sonia Agarwal plays the damsel in distress to perfection as we also fall in love with her. Even though Dhanush’s feelings for her change she understands his pain and holds onto his friendship until the Dhanush decides to give up on the friendship and his life.
Sonia Agarwal as Anitha ( 7g rainbow colony) : It was round 2 of the damsel in distress but once again we were hooked. She becomes the knight in shining armour and rescues her man who is aimless. She makes a man out of him. The man holds on to her memory and cherishes his moments with her.
