We are all stuck with the same emotion  – the weekend is almost here but the week has just begun. As we try to get through yet another day, full of work and the same ol’ routine, it’s important to do something different. How about getting yourself a dose of Samantha’s super-glamorous looks and a few hours full of entertainment? Sounds good, doesn’t it? Well, we know how to make this midweek better. So, here are a  few films, featuring Samantha, that are sure to make your day better. 

Nothing gets better than the 2010 romance-drama, Ye Maya Chesave. A love story between two youngsters, with reversed roles, this film is all hearts. It’s still hard to believe that our glamazon was just another girl on the block during this movie. Well, that’s a debut that we cannot forget.


The 2016 multi-starrer, Brahmotsavam, continues to be a film that one would watch with their family and rekindles the special bonds. Led by Mahesh Babu, this family drama is narrated by Samantha, and also features Kajal Aggarwal and Pranitha Subhash. 

A Aa

Samantha and Nithin reinforced romantic-comedies with their 2016 film, A Aa. With Trivikram Srinivas’ filmmaking, you can be sure of many poetic dialogues and punches the come through to tickle your funny bones. Nithin’s genre of comedy never gets old. Moreover, matching up to his levels, Samantha proved her comedy skills and bagged many awards as the Best Actress.

Irumbu Thira

The 2018 Tamil-language film, Irumbu Thirai, starring Samantha and Vishal, is a mind-blowing thriller. The film is about the hunt and chase that begins when a bunch of hackers steal an army officer’s hard-earned money. How he manages to track them and take back what’s rightfully forms the crux. 


Yet another Tamil-language thriller that took people by a pleasant surprise is Mersal, starring Samantha and the Thalapthy Vijay. In the film, Vijay stars in three roles, as the father and his two sons. The story takes off when the father dies and the two sons are on their own. While the elder son is happy serving people in his best capacity, the younger one thirsts to avenge his father’s murder.


If there is one film in the history of Telugu cinema that will forever be close to the audience is Manam. Starring the founding father of Telugu cinema, Akkineni Nageshwar Rao along with his son, Nagarjuna, and his grandsons, Naga Chaitanya and Akhil, the film is special on all levels. Completing the family is Amala, and revealing the then-hidden secrets is Samantha. If ‘epic’ had to be a film, it would surely be Manam.


If Back to the Future changed the course of time-travel and science-fiction for the common man, 24 is the first step towards that in Tamil cinema. Starring Suriya and Samantha, this movie is about the scientist who manages to find a way to put the theory of time-travel to practise. However, a series of events turn the tables in favour of the bad guys, and it takes a long time to put things back in order.

Raju Gari Gadhi 2

If nothing suits your tastes so far, this horror-comedy, titled Raju Gari Gadhi 2, is your saviour. It all begins when three friends, played by Vennela Kishore, Praveen and Ashwin Babu, decide to ditch the usual ways of life and live luxuriously. They struggle to find, and somehow, buy an old villa and turn it into a resort. What follows next are many scary screams, a ‘beautiful’ ghost, a moral and an interesting mystery that revolves around Samantha. 

Treat yourself to these interesting films today and until next time, stay tuned to this space for more updates.
