Jayam Ravi is the hottest hero among the younger lot of stars in the Tamil tinsel world. His M.Kumaran Son of Mahalakshmi is a super smash hit like his earlier film Jayam. The trade is happy about the performance of the film at the box-office.

In Chennai city, the film directed by Ravi’s elder brother M.Raja and distributed by his father ‘Editor’ Mohan, has already collected a distributor’s share of Rs 54 Lakhs in 40 days and from Subham theatre alone the share is a whopping Rs 12 Lakhs!

All over Tamilnadu the film is still holding on in spite of opposition from five big Diwali releases. What has worked wonders for the film is the age old Thai Pasam (mother-son bonding) and the Mohan family has to be congratulated for picking the right subjects for remake into Tamil.

And Ravi comes across as a polite guy with a boy-next-door image which has worked well with the family audience. And due to his tall, handsome-looks he has been able to get a large female audience for his films. This image as a perfect gentleman will go a long way in boosting his fledging career in an industry where half a hit and young heroes think that they are superstars!
