OK so ever since Goodachari released, everybody is busy praising Sesh. And we believe that he deserves every bit of it for his efforts and courage. And he is great, indeed. But today we’ll particularly be talking about the ones who are equally great and stellar on screen. The ladies of Goodachari.
But before talking about them, A small recap to his previous film Kshanam. There is something special in Sesh’s movies (Kshanam and Goodachari). Both the movies have strong written and perfectly etched female characters. And the perfect example to describe it would be Anasuya’s role in Kshanam.
We’ve all watched her in so many TV shows and public programs. Nobody would’ve guessed that she could pull off the role of the cop like a boss.
The Ladies Of Goodachari:
The real deal of the film. Let’s go back to a past couple of weeks. As part of the promotion, team Goodachari released a series of character introduction posters of all the leading ladies in the movie. First of all, it was not only amazing to see that the team separately released individual posters of the ladies but also new in Tollywood. Because most of the ‘movie first looks’ now days do not even have the heroines on the poster. Because maybe the filmmakers don’t consider their roles important enough. But on the completely opposite side, ladies of Goodachari had many minute details to their roles. For example, each of them has a weapon of choice.
How the ladies did justice to the film?
Of course, the first person we are talking about is the incredible & evergreen Supriya Yarlagadda garu. For those who don’t know/remember, We’ve only seen her in one movie, ‘Akkada Ammayi Ikkada Abbayi‘, both her and Pawan Kalyan’s debut movie that released 22 years ago. Ever since she chose to stay behind the camera (but in the cinema field). It was Sesh who convinced Supriya to do the Nadia Qureshi role.
There were scenes in the film where she doesn’t even utter a word, and her eyes do all the speaking. And as long as she was on screen, at no point it felt like it was the second movie. Her fierce eyes left the audience in awe. We are hoping that we will get to see her more in such great and offbeat roles from now.
Take a wild guess, in which movie you might’ve seen her? ‘Kithakithalu’, yep 12 years back you’ve seen her in Allari Naresh’s comedy movie (Also seen in Gopala Gopala). Most people don’t even remember her as an actress itself. Also, when was the last time we’ve seen a female character in a movie kicking some asses, fighting thugs and basically being a badass? Her character Leena Rajan perfectly explores how a female spy looks and behaves like.
And after watching Goodachari it felt like, as an actress Madhu Shalini is definitely underutilized all these days.
Last but the best, Sobhita Dhulipala:
Before talking about her role as ‘Sameera’. We should talk about who Sobhita is, for those who don’t know. Sobhita Dhulipala is our very own Telugu girl born in Tenali, brought up in Vizag. Later she moved to Bombay to pursue modeling. And eventually made her Bollywood debut with Anurag Kashyap’s Raman Raghav 2.0. Which got her a nomination in Cannes film festival that year. She also did 2 more films in Bollywood before Goodachari.
Without revealing anything, though her role as Sameera was short. She did absolute justice. It was so nice to see a Telugu girl acting in a Telugu movie as a lead after so long.
Huge shoutout to Sesh and his team for writing great roles for women in films. And here’s hoping to these stunning ladies soon back on screens with great roles.
