First, you can find actress Revathy’s website here (www.revathy.com). She also has a Facebook group where she participates (as “Revathy Asha”) as well called “Revathy Fans and Friends (Official)”. Please note, there is also a fake page called “Revathy” which is run by an imposter.
As for this page, those who know me will know that I’m generally not concerned with celebrities. However, the exception is that I would call myself a fan of Revathy – or perhaps it is more correct to say that she is an actress whom I respect for a variety of reasons including her acting talent, bharatanatyam background, and the myriad of social causes she has lent her help to.
Most of all though, I like the way that she has been able to have a popular career while sticking to good roles, usually that of bold or smart women, while avoiding glamour. These days, there will be the odd actress who says they wish to only do roles “like Revathy or Suhasini”, but the path generally changes along the way. I suppose it’s simply due to the fact that there used to be more of those roles in the 80s and early 90s.
As for my favourite films of hers:
In Tamil: Marupadiyum, Mouna Raagam, Vaidegi Kaathirunthal, Marumagal
In Malayalam: Kakkothi Kaavile Appoppan Thaadikal, Devasuram, Agni Devan
I’ve also reviewed many of her films in this category of posts: Revathy films.
As I said before, I’m not really the type of person to engage in “fan activities”, however there is one small task I have a habit of doing, and that is keeping track of various interviews of Revathy I have come across on the internet over time, so I figured I would post them here.
