She is beautiful, she is talented; she is no more. Whether you grew up watching her as a child in South India or whether you were the lucky enough to have her near you in Bollywood, Sri Devi’s performances crossed barriers and borders. We thought it is befitting to list some of her best songs from mostly the starting of her career because we are after all a little biased about those times! Here’s a befitting list! 10 Songs of Sri Devi you have to listen now to remember her and maybe cry into a tissue! Sigh!
10. Sippi Erukkudhu from Varumayin Neram Sivappu
Kickstarting the list we have one of the best of Kamal and Sri Devi’s chemistry shown in Varumayin Niram Sivappu; a movie that tackled unemployment and communism. Sri Devi in the role of a struggling worker who is juggling feelings for Prathap and Kamal was praised by many and she showed equal mettle to Ulaganayagan Kamal. This song is our favourite on the playlist!
09. Chinnanchiru Vayathil from Meendum Kokila
This original Sathileelavathi type story was hilarious and marked the making of a bankable actress! Although Kamal was the lead and had the fortune of working with two actresses in this, Sri Devi easily overtook the role of Kokila and even won a Filmfare award for her role. She essayed the role of a wife whose husband was running behind a cinema star with comedic timing and panache!
