Jo... Jo... Jolly

Jyothika is one of those actresses who has grown on me. While she was cute and endearing in her debut in a cameo role in Vaali, I remember laughing at her dance movements in Poovellaam Kaettuppaar, being irritated at her facial antics in Kushi and predicting a quick exit for her. But she has proved my words wrong. Since Kushi, the chubby and bubbly actress has focussed on her strengths and eliminated her weaknesses to emerge as a very popular and well-rounded (pun unintended!) actress.

Jo's had her share of hits and misses so far. She rebounded from a poor 2002, when she was almost written off, to star in huge hits like Dhool and Kaakka Kaakka in 2003. 2004 wasn't in the same leage but she was noticed for her double role in Perazhagan and rounded the year off with a hit in Manmadhan, while also earning high marks for her energetic dancing to En Aasai Mythiliye... with Simbhu.

Jo's fans have a lot to look forward to since she has two biggies coming out very soon. And she has quite a few things to be excited about in both the films. The first of these, if it gets its problems resolved, will be Maayaavi, where she is paired once again with Surya. The film, where it looks like she plays herself (atleast, she plays an actress called Jyothika), has her dubbing in her own voice for the first time. Sun TV had a first look at the film on Sunday and her Tamil was surprisingly good. She then appears in Rajnikanth's Chandramukhi in what sounds like a dream role for any actress - playing the title role in a woman-centric Rajnikanth film!

I have to agree with you about Jo. I was DEFINITELY ready to write her off after what has to be one of the most banal & irritating scenes EVER in kushi (yes, I'm talking about the you-peeked-a-leering-look-at-my-oversized-belly scene!).. I had all but given up on her acting skills till director Gautam reigned her in, in Kaake Kaake. Just shows what good directing skills can do for an actor/actress. Plus the fact that she's gone on a diet with aktins-style-results helps ten fold! She's never looked better. And kudos to whoever did the voice over for Jo's character in Kaake Kaake.

The scene you are talking about has to be a classic. The one which got to me was the one where Vijay and Jo were walking backing to the car after he tells her the car won't start. Her expressions in this scene were so exaggerated and overdone that she really got on my nerves. I think the movie where I really started liking her was 12B. Ofcourse, by the time Kaakka Kaakka came along, I was a fan already :-)
