"Jayam" Ravi alias "Re-make" Ravi...!!!

Hi friends!! Life as a hero can be sometimes be very good even if u r not lucky enough to get original scripts most of the time!! But, tell u what, one of the heroes who is sooooooo lucky that he doesn't act with a heroine even twice!! Yup, ur right guys... My post refers to the one and only "Jayam" Ravi... What a guy he is!! He's not a very experienced actor, but what a line up of heroines he's been shaking legs and running around trees with!! Man, u surely can envy him for that!!



His line up of heroines:


1. Sadha:
He started off with "Jayam", a remake of a telugu film of the same name. It was his first break as well as for Sadha in Tamil(though Jayam in Telugu was her first movie). Tell u what... She looked somewhat good in the film(unlike the way she looks nowadays!!). The movie was declared a hit, but friends, i tell u there was nothing in the movie i felt was worth watching !! Since it was a debut for both of them, the movie didnt get much of a hype and hoopla, but it ran decently... After Jayam she went on to act in Aethiree with Maddy, Varnajaalam with Srikanth, Anniyan with Vikram, Priyasakhi with Maddy again, Thirupathy with Ajith Kumar and the latest, Unnale Unnale with debutante actor Vinay. She has also acted in a number of Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada movies. And now the latest news is that she's going to act in a couple of Hindi movies!! So, all the best Sadha with ur future ventures...




And the second lady with whom he co-starred with was the hip and happening Asin:



2. Asin:
The second movie happened a year after his first movie was released. And the movie was worth the wait. It was "M.Kumaran, S/O Mahalakshmi" which went on to be a smash hit. It was again a re make of the Telugu movie "Amma Nanna O Tamila Ammai" in which she had debuted in Telugu. It was a big break for her and she really did it well in the role of "Malabar", a girl from Kerala. She had actually signed Ullam Ketkumae as her first film in Tamil, but M. Kumaran was the first to hit the screens before Ullam Ketkumae. After that there was no turning back for her as hits were coming continuously for the gorgeous girl. Her next big hit was "Ghajini" Opposite Surya, for which she won the Filmfare Best Actress Award, South. Then she went on to act with lead Tamil heroes, the likes of Vikram, Vijay, Ajith in a number of films. Her latest offering was "Vel" opposite Surya, which was declared a hit. She still has the prestigious "Dasavatharam" opposite Kamal Hassan and the hindi remake of "Ghajini" opposite Aamir Khan in the pipeline. Rumour has it that Asin is slowly shifting her career into hindi films here on. Lets hope she proves herself there too the way she proved herself here!


And here goes his third movie!!:

3. Renuka Menon:
The third movie was opposite the svelte-looking Renuka Menon who is yet to make a mark in the Tamil film industry. The movie was "Daas" which was an original script. But the movie didn't create much a sort of waves in the industry. But still the girl looked quite good and Ravi would have as well had a good time with her!! After "Daas", she went on to star with "Bharat" of Boys and Kaathal fame in the movie "February 14" which proved out to be a flash in the frying pan. Her next release was with Kalabhak Kadhalan which was a movie of an offbeat genre. Her co-star this time was Arya. Her future plans are not very clear in the Tamil film industry as there is news that she has stopped acting and is going to get married.






The fourth lady is quite impressive i must say!!:

4. Shriya Saran:
"Mazhai" was "Jayam" Ravi's fourth film and this time his lead lady was Shriya, the queen of Telugu film industry. The movie was a re-make of the Telugu film, "Varsham" which was a blockbuster. She had earlier acted in Enakku 20 Unakku 18. She then signed "Thiruvilayadal Aarambam" opposite Dhanush which was a reasonable hit. But her ticket to fame in Tamil Industry came with "Sivaji: The Boss" opposite Superstar Rajini. Then she went on to do "Azhagiya Tamil Magan" and did a cameo in "Indiralogathil Na. Azhappan". She is currently busy with the shooting of Susi Ganesan's "Kanthasamy" opposite Vikram. She is also doing a movie in Hollywood opposite Jesse Metcalfe and a couple of Hindi movies.


His fifth movie was "Idhaya Thirudan" opposite:

5. Kamna Jethmalani:

She has not become such a big person to write about... Just two movies so far, one opposite Jayam Ravi(with a steamy smooch!!) and the second one opposite Jeevan in "Machakkaran". So, lets move on to the next heroine!!













His sixth movie was opposite:

6. Trisha:
"Something Something Unakkum Enakkum" was the sixth movie for him opposite the happening actress Trisha. This was again a re-make of a Telugu movie "Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana" which she had originally starred with Siddharth(who looked great compared with our hero!!). She has acted in a host of Tamil movies including a bathroom clipping which made her very famous. This fame was something more than the name she obtained by acting in films!! She is a great "friend" of Simbu(see 'En Ragasiya Kanavugal' song from "alai") and Vijay(that u all know!!). She's currently busy with "kuruvi" with Vijay.

His next heroine:


7. Bhavana:
Her foray into tamil films was with Narain in "Chithiram Pesuthadi". Then, she did Kizhakku Kadarkarai Salai with flop star Srikkanth and then it was our hero in "Deepavali". The movie was a decent hit, but buddies, the "Susee" word rings in ut head for a very long time!! It simply irritates ur ear drums when our hero repeatedly mentions the name!! She then went on to do a couple of movies with Madhavan and Jeeva but they didn't do any good business at the box office. But, things apart, our heroine is very very cute and deserves to get a good place in Tamil film industry!! So lets wish her all the best and beware Bhavana, don't get caught in any bathroom videos!!







His next movie is "Santosh Subramaniam" which is in the making with:

8. Genelia
She is an extremely cute actress who unfortunately couldn't make a big mark in the Tamil film industry inspite of acting under the "Shankar" banner in "Boys" and with Vijay in "Sachien". Both of them were average hits. But later on, she did a disaster with "Chennai Kadhal". Wonder why she and Bharat signed that movie!! It had no storyline as well as performances. But, she grew famous in the Telugu film industry with a number of movies especially the childish role in "Bommarillu" opposite Siddharth!! It was this film only which bagged her the Telugu Filmfare Best Actress and the re-make role in Tamil. Hope she makes it big here too!!


His next movie:

9. Kangana Ranaut:

Jayam Ravi has signed his next movie with hindi actress Kangana Ranaut and Lakshmi Rai under the name "Dhaam Dhoom". The movie started off well but in the middle of the shooting, director Jeeva passed away. So, now the movie is being directed by Manikandan. The hindi Heroine had a tough life until "Gangster" happened. after that she went on to do "Life In a Metro" which was an offbeat film, but was declared a hit. Hope she makes it in Tamil film industry too..!!



His next movie is declared to be "Peraanmai". So, we can say that our hero has quite a large no. of movies in the making. But look at the list of heroines he has worked with in the last four years.!!! I must say, a re-make hero can't desire more than this!! Three cheers to our "Re-make" Ravi, sorry "Jayam" Ravi....!!
