The Fab Five

Rediff has a list of the five hottest Tamil actresses today. So who are the fab five according to Rediff?

Asin - Definitely the hottest considering her lineup of movies(Godfather with Ajith, Ghajini with Surya, Sivakasi with Vijay, Majaa with Vikram). I didn't find her all that beautiful in M. Kumaran s/o Mahalakshmi. But along with Trisha, she is proof that 'thin is in'(finally!) in Tamil cinema.

Nayanthara - My personal favorite and not just for the obvious reason :-) She's gotten a bad rap for pairing up with senior actors and I feel a li'l sorry for her. And IMO, she looks gorgeous and hasn't been projected well in the homely getup in either Ayya or Chandramukhi. I'm hoping Kalvanin Kaadhali changes that. But recent KK and Vallavan pics suggest that she might be overdoing the glamorous bit.

Gopika - Had a dream debut with a strong role in Autograph and seems to be picking projects intelligently so far. Proved she was not averse to 'aesthetic glamour' in Kanaa Kanden.

Sandhya - I absolutely loved her in Kaadhal and am fervently hoping she picks some good projects. I still don't think Tamil cinema has found a replacement for Revathi (for awhile it seemed like Shalini might be it but then Ajith and Amarkkalam happened). Right now Sandhya looks like a good bet.

Trisha - She was a given but Rediff's praise seems to a bit too much. If we were to believe the writeup, Trisha's picking and choosing her projects and the others are simply feeding off her scraps! But definitely the numero uno after movies like Saamy, Gilli and Thiruppaachi.

All I can say is "May the best lass win". But whoever wins, we guys can sit back and drool while saying "Sabaash, sariyaana poatti!"

Geographical observation: Three of the five are Keralathu paingilis :-)

Tearful observation: Jyothika didn't make the list

Happy observation: Sada didn't make the list!

'Stomach-burning' observation: Three of the five are heroines in Simbhu's upcoming Vallavan.

Hey Balaji.. are you sure that 3 of the 5 heroines are in Vallavan?.. I know for a fact that Nayantara and Sandhya are there... but the third gal is Reema Sen.. Where is she on Rediff's list?..

Regardless.. your stomach shall burn more if Mallika 'boob show' Sherawat joins the show! :-)

gopi, trisha and sandhya have malayali blood in them?

vc, what is hyderabad potti?

ram, so which is greater jil or jung?!

sandhya, u're right. i was thinking about gopika with simbhu in 'thotti jaya' and put her together with the other 2 in 'vallavan'. will correct it in the next update...

so mallika is joining the cast? item number? and from the pics i've seen she could even be called mallika 'all show' sherawat!

bj, from the sound of it, cant u guess? + its from Kadhalan...
jil's better...i loooooove asin...the rest are all mediocre (i'm the asokan of the post today!)

here's a recent mail sent to my group of friends (PG-13 rated):

Hi guys,

We have added an amendment to the JJJ Ratings System in compliance with the ISO 9000 (Item-Sightings-Organization) requirements.

To quickly recap, we have

Jingrijingaaley (to be used only for the creme de la creme of the world)

Jil (+, neutral, -)

Jung (+, neutral, -)

Jukk (+, neutral, -)

And, it is with great pleasure that I announce a new term to describe a truly “attu figure” that cannot even enter the ratings scale and will be given a consolation rating. It is called “Jaam Bajaar Juggu.” The reasoning behind this is that usually washed-out figures are referred to as “bajaarees” and of course, “juggu” can mean “fat” (Courtesy: Counder) or term-4 of our existing system.

I had a telecon with Vshank yesterday and the resolution was passed.

Fab 2 - Asin, Trisha
Flab 3 - Nayanthara, Sandhya, Gopika.

Nayanthara might look cute. But seeing her in the 'Konja Neram...' song in CM and Kundu Sandhya in school running race scene ('Thoattu Thoattu unnai...' song) ...YEBBAAAA
