This blockbuster gained much traction for its quirky and satirical comedy and peppy songs with natural acting from both Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi. Standing out between the two is the characterization and role of Kadhambari played by Nayanthara.
Kadhambari is a strong father’s loving daughter who loses her hearing at a young age in a bomb blast set by certain enemies of her policeman father. She succumbs to her mother in this terrible accident as well. She was very happy in her little world with her father but this happiness didn’t last ending up in her father’s death as well.
So, here’s a letter of strength and love to this powerful characterization or role of Kadhambari Although it was Vignesh Shivan’s words, it was Nayanthara who nailed and took this role to the next level.
Yes, we know it’s been 6 years of pain. 6 years of satisfaction. 6 years of love. We just want to send you loads of strength and love your way! We just want you to know we are immensely proud of you! Having to undergo such a huge loss physically and mentally at such a young age is heartbreaking yet you beautifully handled it. Kudos to your courage!
When your mother left you, you decided to take the role of her and brought a big smile to your dad’s face, helping him forget the pain all by hiding your pain. The same as done by your loving father to you. He played the role of your mother, father, BFF and raised you to be this strong, bold woman that you are today. We assure you he is smiling big time with huge love and pride looking at you from up there!
When you knew something was not right, something is fishy with your dad’s disappearance you decided to take matters into your hand. You didn’t mind if it was a late-night stroll, you decided to walk miles looking for your beloved Appa. This not just showed your love but also your perseverance to find him and nonchalance towards the world as her world was her Father and nobody or nothing else.
When you learned about her dad’s death, you didn’t stop. You pushed yourself to avenge your father and mother’s death. You sought revenge. Who said only men and heroes will take revenge but you proved you can do whatever you want when one puts their mind to it. You even met your life-long enemy and Don Parthiepan all by yourself with your bare hands all set to kill him.
Last but not least, despite so many backlogs. You didn’t stop loving. You didn’t stop being kind. You lend your full heart to Pandi and his friends. You are beautiful both inside and out! We adore you! We love you!
Another soul aspiring to be like you!
