Girl Power : Trisha Debuts As A Singer On Her Birthday


By Karthik Keramulu

It’s Trisha’s 33rd birthday today!

She has starred in several blockbusters since her debut film ‘Jodi’. She’s seen the highs and lows in Tamil and Telugu cinema and she’s dipped her nice fingers in Hindi and Kannada films, as well.

After representing the confusions of womanhood through her character Jessie in Tamil cinema, she joined hands with the ‘VTV’ maker, Gautham Menon, again for ‘Yennai Arindhaal’. She was a rookie in ‘Saamy’, a toughie in ‘Thoongavanam’, and a ghost we all made fun of in ‘Aranmanai 2’. Every time she appears on-screen, I hope to see a little more of her. But many a time I’ve had to make do with the littler things filmmakers offer our actresses.

Many posts and videos celebrating Trisha’s birthday have landed on social media sites and YouTube. “Bhayam” is one such song video. It’s been giving chills to the viewers from this morning. It’s a song from the upcoming bilingual film ‘Nayaki’ (‘Nayagi’ in Tamil). When you see Trisha going, “pah… pah… power, Girl Power!”, you’ll realize why we need better filmmakers.

Trisha is not only the performer you see in the video, she’s also the singer. She’s capable of doing so much more, and here, she is dancing to ridiculous music on her birthday. I don’t expect her to star in great films always. Whatever she touches may not turn into gold. But there has to be a separating line. “Bhayam” is really miles away from that line.

‘Nayaki’ is a horror comedy (just like ‘Aranmanai 2’). Genres don’t matter as long as the output is excellent. A positive shade hasn’t come out from ‘Nayaki’ yet. The trailer is laugh-worthy. Yes! Not in a comedic manner, though. It’s funny in its own idiotic universe.

Here’s wishing the ever cheery looking actress great luck on her birthday! Also, as a wish, I’d like to see her in more sensible films in the future.

If Trisha’s birthday calls for a celebratory song, it has to be “Maya Bazaar” from ‘Yennai Arindhaal’.
