Of the thousands of beginners with dreaminess in their eyes, there are an only the few that cut. Yes, fortune is a determining element but what is also vital is the candidate’s confidence, and advance to parts. While most imitators would eye the leading role or a character in a big budget picture, novice Archana Ravi did the impossible — she made her entrance with Aatu — a Tamil movie in the central heroine of a lower-middle-class lassie living near the illegal junkyard of Northern Chennai.
Hardly a fashionable way to start her introduction but Archana had a solid reason. She says, she needed a lead role but did not want a part that wanted her to just run around. This role had material in it, and was presentation oriented and she believed that was more significant than acting in a profitable movie. The proud artist wants to get recognized as a performer.
It is this same belief that led to Archana debuting in a prime role in the Malayalam picture Meenakshi which will have her plummeting deep into the pools of her talent. The movie takes a look at the real-life occurrence of the mysterious suicide of Kerala’s erudite genius — T.A. Rajalakshmi. Archana says that she plays the character of a reporter who has come to inspect the rashness of the writer and author.
Her character goes to a township and tries to influence a change there. While a passionate track exists, Archana’s benchmark for selecting a role is clear when she explains the distinction. Her oddity also falls in love with the much mature 45-year-old prophet of the community something which is new to Malayalam film. It was the uplifting script that had her accepting the picture, directed by newscaster Murali and penned by Mohan.
Kochi-based Archana is not new to the limelight and has been the silver medalist at the Ms. Queen Kerala beauty show. The Tamil picture Aatu has shown her acting qualifications, and the pretty girl has been attending to letterings but is not in any mad run to sign movies. She treasures her performing experience and speaks affectionately of her Kollywood occupation. The people in Chennai give you a lot of admiration and often call her Amma. Their devotion is also very praiseworthy and admirable. The shoot for the Malayalam flick will begin soon, and she is looking forward to functioning with veterans like Nedumudy Venu,
Sudheer Karamana, etc. in Meenakshi.
