Sai Pallavi has proved to be an actress who can mould into any role- she can be the quintessential girl-next-door but she can also portray a woman with a serious mental illness. Her elegance and grace is unmatchable. Pair her effortless dance moves with her knack for giving her best always, and it becomes clear why Sai Pallavi is one the most mesmerizing actresses of our times. OTTPlay is taking a trip down the memory lane to some of her best performances.

8.6OTTplay Rating
Pallavi was only 23 years old and a student of medicine in Georgia when Premam was offered to her as her debut film. Overcoming her insecurities of being a young girl thrust in the cast of two other female stars, she had her reservations about taking the film up. However, when Premam was released in 2015, Pallavi became a sensation overnight. She plays the role of guest lecturer Malar who captures the heart of her student, with her trademark sleekness.

Fidaa proved to be the film that propelled Pallavi to further fame. She plays the role of Bhanumathi, a fierce young Telugu woman. She changed the perception of what a traditional Telugu heroine should look like, and shone as Bhanumathi, who was loud, unapologetically herself and possessive of her family.

Pallavi overcame her fear of driving in Kali, where she plays the role of Anjali- a happily married woman who realizes that love alone is not enough to keep her relationship with Siddhart (Dulquer Salmaan) going. Her portrayal of a woman who is forced to confront her fears to save her husband was appreciated by the audience and displayed her knack for versatility.
Maari 2
5.7OTTplay Rating
Chances are, you have already watched Pallavi overshadow a star as prominent as Dhanush in Rowdy Baby, which recently broke all records by becoming the first South Indian song to cross 1 billion views on YouTube. Maari 2 features her in the role of Aanandi, who is the only one that is a match for gangster Maari (Dhanush). Her playfulness as Aanandi transforms into a loving relationship with Maari and she acts as his pillar throughout.
Paava Kadhaigal
7.6OTTplay Rating
Pallavi stars in Oor Iravu in Tamil anthology film Paava Kadhaigal. She plays the role Sumathi, who has returned to her patriarchal village in the last days of her pregnancy, following years of feuding with her family. Pallavi’s painful cries as she begs her father to save her and her child in the end are haunting. Oor Iravu showcases her incredible talent of tapping into every emotion that is required of her on-screen.
Middle Class Abbayi
6.3OTTplay Rating
Pallavi plays the role of Chinni, Nani’s character’s love interest, in Middle Class Abbayi. The highlight of the film was Pallavi’s chemistry with Nani. Her chirpy demeanor and striking expression in the film left the audience in awe of her performance. The song Evandoyee Nani Garu features her skills as a charming dancer.
7.2OTTplay Rating
Pallavi plays the role of an autistic woman in psychological-thriller Athiran. Her soulful performance as a woman who is grappling to understand her condition while gaining interest in martial arts is soulful. The audience was captivated by the ease with which Pallavi took them through the life of Nithya, including the horrors of her past.
