Revathy S Varmha

Revathy S Varmha made her foray into filmmaking as an ad-filmmaker. She had directed more than 90 commercial advertisements in her peak career. She is a female filmmaker and had concepts of women-oriented themes for direction.

She directed a film ‘June R ‘in Tamil with leading actresses like ‘Jyothika’, ‘ Kushboo’, and ‘ Saritha’ in the lead roles. The film had a theme based on the emotions of a girl longing for a motherly touch. The film had no takers as it had no commercial content. Hence actor ‘ Surya’ was roped in to play a cameo character and the film finally released with a poor response.

Revathy S Varmha wanted to make the same film into Hindi with a stellar cast of Ayesha Takia and other Bollywood stars. It was said the film would star Jaya Bachchan, Raveena Tandon, R. Madhavan in lead roles but the project remained only on paper and nothing came out in real. It was titled as 'Aap Ke Liye Hum', but is still being held up for unknown reasons.

Later she made a Malayalam language film ‘ Maad Dad’ which had screenplay, story, directed by herself. Initially, ‘ Mohanlal’ was the choice to play the male lead role but later on ‘ Lal’ was replaced to play the role. The film released in 2013. It is said she tried directing a Sinhalese film.

Before making her debut into film making, she was an acclaimed ad filmmaker. Vamsha began writing scripts at the age of 16 for advertisements and she was based in Delhi. She soon became a director of an advertisement company and directed advertisements for Nakshatra, Cadbury, Parker pens and other consumer end-product brands etc.
