Anandhi has been receiving rave reviews from critics and movie lovers across India since her very first showings. She is one of few Indian actresses to have won the coveted Golden Globe Awards for best actress in a Leading Role category, for her role in Ajit Khan’s Mankatha (2021). Anandhi has since gone on to receive multiple awards for her performances in other movies including Baahubali: The Outcast (avier).
Anandhi was born to Hindu parents from an upper class family in Kerala, India. Anandhi’s early years were spent studying at R.K. College, fondly known as RK College of Engineering. Her focus on studies earned her a scholarship to V.P. College, University of Madras, India, where she pursued a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. While in college, Anandhi was also an active member of debating society and found her vocation and her association with debating keenly stimulating.

After completing her engineering degree, Anandhi began to work on the script of her first non-supervised feature, Anandhi. She worked alongside award winning director Satya Paul Verma, co-writer Manish Malhotra, and producer S.S. Rajamouli. Anandhi received extensive praise for her first ever film, from Cinema Review, who stated that Anandhi was an “outstanding” example of how a filmmaker can be bold and make a low budget film. The film did not achieve box office success, but it did achieve critical acclaim. The next film in Anandhi’s repertoire, Anandhi is set to star Anushka Shetty, and has received both positive and negative reviews.
Anandhi, now starring Anushka Shetty, is set to receive her third consecutive Best actress award at the upcoming Oscars, following Anandhi’s triumph at the earlier screenings. With an ensemble cast comprising Anushka Shetty, Ajith Kumar, and Madhubala Murthy, Anandhi has the scope to receive multiple Oscar nominations, should it win any awards at the Oscars this year. Though the film received some negative reviews upon its release, the overall critical reception of Anandhi has been generally positive, and the film did find successful commercial appeal. It was one of the few Indian films to make it to the top ten of the US movie ratings; earningooks $2 million at the end of its opening weekend. The overall box office success of Anandhi is owed to the strength of the main characters, and the script.
Though Anandhi does have a mediocre plot line, and the characters and plot are not original, it does manage to capture the imagination of movie goers, with its colorful costumes, vibrant colors, and energetic dance sequences. Director Shimit Amini, an associate of the ever popular Anandhi studio, and co-writer of Anandhi, are responsible for the stellar script, and the visually stunning pictures. Amini has previously worked on hit Hindi movies like Baahubali and Humko Deewana and has always been associated with quality Hindi films. A promising future for Anandhi, as it looks for early career success.
Director Shimit Amini is in the process of shooting the second part of the Baahubali franchise and is also attached to a project based on the hit comedy series M.A.S.H. The film will surely feature the titular character, and it is expected that Anandhi will once again become a hot favorite this summer. Anandhi, along with the other Baahubali movies, will offer another opportunity for Hindi movie goers to see some first rate Hindi films, which they had never seen before, and which is sure to thrill viewers to no end.
