It’s impossible for us to imagine an episode of Pookalam Varavayi without Mridhula Vijai’s stellar performance as Samyuktha on-screen. The actress garnered a lot of buzz for her amazing chemistry with Abhimanyu essayed by Arun G Raghavan on the show. However, unlike most other female lead characters on television, Samyuktha is not one of those long-suffering damsels in distress, waiting to be rescued by her hero. Despite her less than ideal financial circumstances as well as family situations, she is someone who meets challenges head-on. She is stern when she needs to be,she doesn’t brook nonsense, but she is also optimistic about life, despite all the difficulties that she and her family face. In fact, if one had to compare Samyuktha and Abhimanyu, it’s evident that she is the stronger of the two. This actually makes Samyuktha one of the best characters to watch on Pookalam Varavayi. Check out 4 instances that we believe demonstrate her inner strength to her fans and the telly audience.
