Ace director Trivikram Srinivas is noted for his witty dialogues and punchlines, which are characteristic of the East Godavari dialect. Most of his movies are studded with these dialogues.
However, we tend to miss out the witty lines by the women characters in his films, as mostly we concentrate on the hero’s character and role.
Here we list some memorable one liners by Trivikram’s leading ladies in his movies, as the director turns 48 on November 7th, 2019.
- Shriya Saran as Anjali in Nuvve Nuvve (2002)
Shriya Saran played the love interest of Tarun in this directorial debut of Trivikram Srinivas. The role of Shriya is that of a bubbly girl who is ragged by her senior Tarun in college, but when she gets an opportunity, Shriya teases Tarun by saying, “Cha mementandi, mimmalini Sir ani pilusthu tirigevallam.” The scene where Tarun is stuck with a dog at Shriya’s home is particularly hilarious.
- Trisha as Puri in Athadu (2005)
Trisha, in her most remembered role in this movie, was hilarious. Her comic timing was spot on in scenes where she boasts of her good looks and when she finds out some secrets about Parthu, her uncle. In the latter case, she says, “Paapam amma vallu veedini Complan boy anukuntunnaru, chala complicated boy ani telidu vallaki.” Mahesh Babu’s and Trisha’s characters were extremely fun in the movie.
- Ileana D’Cruz as Bhagyamathi in Jalsa (2008)
Ileana D’Cruz was the reigning star in the late 2000s, on which Trivikram cashed in by designing a possessive heroine role for her in Jalsa. Her dialogue, “Nuvvu mottam nake kavali,” was noted for its comic timing and Pawan Kalyan’s reaction to this dialogue is epic.
- Anushka Shetty as Subbu in Khaleja (2010)
Arguably Trivikram’s best movie, Khaleja is filled with many comedy scenes including Mahesh Babu and Anushka Shetty. When Alluri Seetarama Raju (Mahesh Babu) gets into an accident due to Subhashini (Anushka) and is hospitalised, she visits him and gifts a bonsai plant, naming it Faiza. Raju tramples on it, sighing, “Nuvvu nannu choodataniki vachava, champataniki vachava?” The whole scene is great with situational comedy.
- Ileana D’Cruz as Madhu in Julai (2012)
Ileana D’Cruz as Madhu, a college student who leads a boring life, was impressive. Her dialogues with Dharmavarapu Subramanyam were witty one liners like “…naa bathukulo life ledu boyledu.” Allu Arjun’s and Ileana’s scene near the bus stop is hilarious. Ravi (Allu Arjun) asks what Madhu’s father does, to which Madhu replies, “Rendo pelli chesuku naru.”
- Samantha as Sashi in Attarintiki Daredi (2013)
Samantha, more or less became a symbol of a spoilt brat girl in Tollywood, in Trivikram’s movies. Her scenes involving Brahmanandam and Pawan Kalyan are hilarious. Her dialogue, “Swami, meeru nadiki vellaleda,” is extremely funny in the way it is intonated.
- Samantha as Sameera in S/O Satyamurthy (2015)
This rollercoaster ride had Samatha play the role of a young diabetic who falls in love with Viraj Anand (Allu Arjun,) but has some personal problems to solve before the marriage is solemnised. Her constant refrain from any marriage proposal in the movie is the dialogue “I am diabetic! Naku sugar undi.”
- Samantha as Anasuya in A Aa (2016)
Samantha acted in Trivikram’s movies thrice till date. Her role as Anasuya had a lot of comic scenes with Nithiin, against a village backdrop. Her scene with Nithiin in which she plays a spoilsport and says, “Suitcase open avatam ledu,” was noted as the most hilarious dialogue in the movie. The scene had an important link with the second half of the story.
- Anupama Parameswaran as Nagavalli in A Aa (2016)
Anupama Parameswaran played a passionate lover’s role in this movie, which is one of the most interesting women characters from Trivikram’s movies. Anupama carried herself with great screen presence in this movie. Her comedy scenes with Samantha are entertaining. Her retort dialogue to her father, “Ravanasurudini valla avida kooda Pawan Kalyan ane anukuntundi,” was a big hit with the audience.
- Pooja Hegde as Aravinda in Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava (2018)
Pooja Hegde’s role as the self confident Aravinda is noted as one of the strongest women characters in Trivikram’s movies till date. Her dialogue, “Konchem space Kavali,” became the WhatsApp status of many.
It is rarely observed by Trivikram Srinivas’ fans that the leading ladies play a substantial role in his movies. However, as the plot is woven with a hero in mind, many miss the roles played by the heroines. They too have the Trivikram mark punch dialogues in a modulated and subtle manner.
