6 Times Trisha Stole The Show Like No Other


Trisha is one of the very few actors from the South who was around for nearly two decades. She has stayed relevant to her work and is known for her authentic acting and timeless beauty. From her debut role in Mounam Pesiyadhe to the blockbuster films such as Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya and 96; Trisha has come a long way charting her own path to success. As she turns 37 today, we take a look at six of her most celebrated performances.


This is a story of two people who meet after 22 years and figure out if they still feel for each other. Trisha team up with Vijay Sethupathi for the first time and as Jaanu, she’s in full control of her character and makes us fall in love with her. In her most natural and effortless self, she delivers one of the most memorable characters of her career. As a character stuck between love and letting go, Trisha floors with a sublime performance.


Trisha plays the villain in the film and her character, Rudhra, is integral to the story. She’s an ambitious, ruthless, and manipulative politician. She kills her boyfriend cum opponent only to win over the leadership she longed from her childhood. 

Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya

In this romantic drama, Trisha plays a Catholic girl who falls for a Hindu boy younger than her. The actor breathed life into the character of Jessie by portraying it as earnestly as she could, and nobody else in her shoes could have done justice to the role and it is one thing that still stays fresh about the movie.

Abhiyum Naanum

Trisha played the daughter of Prakash Raj and the story follows their bond and how their relationship changes when the former decides to get married to a Punjabi boy. Loaded with some genuinely good humour, the film showed her ability to play light-hearted characters that aren’t necessarily dramatic.

Unakum Enakum

In the film, Trisha embraced a rural character playing the sister of a farmer with simple aspirations in life, her performance really made the film memorable. Some of her scenes with Jayam Ravi still remain fresh even 15 years after its release. 

Mounam Pesiyadhe

The film marked Trisha’s debut in a lead role. Even though she played the quintessential girl next door, her performance left a strong impact. Paired opposite Suriya, the film still remains one of the best performances in Trisha’s career.
