Role Film actress
|Name Rama Rama|
Movies Madras, En Uyir Thozhan
Rama is an Indian film actress who has appeared in the Tamil film industry.
Rama was a volleyball player for the Tamil Nadu team when director Bharathiraja cast her in En Uyir Thozhan (1990). The director had continued his tradition of christening his heroines in new names beginning with "R", and "Rama" was subsequently the name given to her. Though it fared poorly at the box office, critics since have applauded the film in hindsight. The failure of the film prompted her to stop appearing in Tamil films.
She made a brief return in 2010, playing a role in Aval Peyar Thamizharasi before earning critical acclaim as Karthi’s feisty, possessive mother in Pa. Ranjith’s Madras (2014). She has since also been a part of A. R. Murugadoss’ Kaththi (2014), where she played Vijay’s mother, and the political drama Purampokku Engira Podhuvudamai (2015).
