Have you heard of the Malayalam film Vilambam, the poignant tale of a gang-raped girl and her fight for justice? The film has not yet been released in India, but has been screened at several international film festivals where it was critically acclaimed by international film critics and pundits. It's Priyanka's first film in Malayalam.
Vilambam has made everyone in the industry take notice of
Priyanka's acting skills and her ability. Though the film has an
impressive lineup of veterans like Thilakan, Biju Menon and
Suhasini, the focus is always on Priyanka and there are only two
scenes in which she does not appear, which is something quite rare
for a heroine! Following this, she has bagged meaty roles in Bipin
Prabhakar"s Samastakeralam PO opposite Jayaram and National award
winning director TV Chandran"s Bhoomi Malayalam opposite Suresh
Gopi. Both films have already completed post production works and
are now expected to release in January 2009.
Not just Malayalam films, Priyanka has also secured a prominent role in the forthcoming Vanam Partha Seemaiyile (Tamil), whose audio will be released soon. The film is considered as a catapult that will elevate Priyanka's status in Kollywood. Priyanka says she is no hurry and would rather wait for a meaningful role rather than work in some run-of-the-mill movie. We wish this brilliant actress the best of luck.
