Keerthy Suresh is the daughter of producer G. Suresh Kumar and heroine Menaka Kumar. Keerthy Suresh has begun acting early in her childhood. She has done a couple of movies as a child artist. The actress then made her acting debut with the movie Geethaanjali. Her debut in Telugu happened three years later with the movie Nenu Sailaja and since then there is no looking back.
Though the actress has done very limited movies in Tollywood she has got superb craze. Currently, she is one of the much-demanded actresses. Let us have a look at the best movies of the actress in the limited period so far.
Best Telugu Movies of Keerthy Suresh
Keerthy Suresh has got a solid entry in the film Nenu Sailaja. It will be a blessing for any actress to get a strong character with her debut film. Keerthy Suresh is lucky to be launched with the film Nenu Sailaja. The film directed by Kishore Tirumala is a super hit. More than the success, the actress has managed to impress the audience with her performance in the movie. Her role is equal to that of the Ram’s in the film. The dialogue she utters, “I love you but I am not in love with you” will be remembered for years. Devi Sri Prasad’s music was sensational as well. This film gave the feeling that it is just the starting for the actress in the Telugu Film Industry.
Nenu Local is one of the best mass commercial movies that was made in recent times. Natural Star Nani is the lead hero in the movie and Keerthy Suresh has played the female lead role. The movie is directed by Trinadha Rao Nakkina. Prasanna Kumar has written the dialogues. The movie is a mass-romantic entertainer that has done well in the B and C Class. While with Nenu Sailaja, she has impressed the C-class, then Nenu Local made her reach the other sections of the audiences. The film has been a success as well and this made the actress be in demand. Again Devi Sri Prasad’s music has been a huge plus for the movie.
Keerthy Suresh has paired up with Pawan Kalyan for Agnatavaasi which was a dud at the box-office. However, Keerthy Suresh is lucky to have such a short time between the releases of Agnatavaasi and Mahanati, the undoubtedly best film in the career of Keerthy Suresh.
Mahanati is an exceptional film. It will stand out as one of the best movies of the decade. Nag Ashwin is the director of Mahanati which is the biopic of legendary actress Mahanati Savitri. Many have wondered about picking Keerthy Suresh for the role of Savitri and many raised eyebrows, but the actress has proved everyone wrong with her stellar performance.
After the release of Mahanati, nobody would have dared to comment on the selection of the actress. She perfectly depicted the emotions and a lot resembled the legendary actress. It was such a beautiful film and Keerthy Suresh has done a job that words are not sufficient to describe her.
Mahanati has won three National awards with one of them being Best Actress for Keerthy Suresh. The other two are Best Film and Outstanding Costume Design.
After the release of Mahanati, Keerthy Suresh has made a decision to change her route. She isn’t ready for just commercial entertainers and more preferred women-centric characters. Due to the lockdown, theaters were shut down and the film as a result got released directly to the OTT platforms. Penguin is a thriller that has got a decent response. Though initially, the film failed to reach the expectations, it has settled down with the audiences slowly. Eashvar Karthic is the director of the movie and National Award-winning director Karthik Subbaraj has co-produced it.
Keerthy Suresh was seen in the role of Rhythm and her performance was on spot. She has impressed everyone as a mother and who struggles for her lost child.
It is another women-centric role for Keerthy Suresh. She has played the role of Manasa Samyuktha who has the ambition to score big in life. She wants to be a successful businesswoman and wanted to explore the Chai business in the USA. Due to the pandemic situation, the film which was planned for theatrical release had to be released on the OTT platform Netflix.
Narendra Nath is the director of Miss India. Mahesh S Koneru has produced the film. Jagapathi Babu has played the villain role. Unfortunately, Miss India has drawn largely negative reviews but that doesn’t affect Keerthy Suresh as she once again has got positive appreciation. However, it was a wake-up call for the actress about signing women-centric characters that are not so strong on content.
Keerthy Suresh at first has given preference to Tamil and Malayalam movies. Now, she is more concentrating on Telugu movies as well. Her latest movie Good Luck Sakhi was directed by Nagesh Kukunoor. Dil Raju has joined the team as a presenter. It is a sports-based film and will be released very soon.
Apart from this, Keerthy Suresh is currently playing the lead role in Nithiin’s Rang De which is in the shooting stages. The film is directed by Venky Atluri and there are good expectations for the movie. Keerthy has got a strong role in the movie. She will also be seen in Super Star Rajinikanth’s next Annaatthe that will be released in Telugu as well. The much bigger news for the Keerthy Suresh fans is that she was roped opposite Super Star Mahesh Babu for Sarkaru Vaari Paata. The regular shooting will start very soon. Sarkaaru Vaari Paata is a film that deals with the banking scam. More details of the project will be out very soon.
These are the straight Telugu films of Keerthy Suresh. If we consider Tamil dubbing releases as well then Vijay’s Sarkaar can be added to the list as well. There are Pandem Kodi 2 and Saamy Square which she acted opposite Vishal and Vikram respectively. However, both these movies failed to enthrall the audiences.
We hope Keerthy Suresh will impress the audiences more with her strong characters.
