The major highlight of the movie is that Kavya is penning the songs set to tune by Rahulraj. Kavya has several films in her kitty, including Ente Uppappakkorana Undayirunnu, Madambi, Twenty Twenty and Chempaka Raman.
Kavya Madhavan shifted to new House
Following her successful shifting to Kollywood, Kavya is also moving to her new house. The leading actress of the south has now moved on to her new house at Palachuvadu road at Ernakulam, leaving aside her apartments in DD villa, where she had been for almost a decade.
“Even though we had shifted to the new house, some of the finishing works of the house are still going on,'' says Kavya who has been more than happy for the good performance of the new movie in Kollywood ‘Saadhu Miranda’.
After the movie, she had been approached for many projects from Kollywood but still now she hasn’t given a nod to any of them.
Kavya will be seen back to back with superstar projects in their new movies like 'Maadambi' and the film by K K Rajeev, in the near future.
In a decade old career, she had never been seen playing the heroines opposite the senior superstars like Mammootty and Mohanlal.
Kavya writing lyrics
Bipin Prabhakar's new Prithviraj starrer ‘One Way Ticket' will feature songs written by its heroine, Kavya Madhavan. The actress who had for quite some time writing poetry, secretly, was forced to pen a few for the film, after the insistence by its hero Prithviraj and script writer Babu Janardhanan.
Young music composer Rahulraj will tune the lyrics that Kavya is writing for the film.The first of the song through which Kavya is foraying into lyric writing will be a typical 'Oppana' song. ‘One Way Ticket’ produced by Thiruvenkidan Productions will start rolling from the first week of March at Palakkad. The flick will be the second film of Prithviraj with the director Bibin Prabhakar, who impressed many with his first outing 'Khakhi'.
Kavya Madhavan is finally forcing her name into the list of artists, who always showed promise in the subtle but heavy roles of typical art house movies.
The artist, who was rather considered as an essential commercial heroine, changed her course with her short but sweet portrayal of Subhadra in 'Naalu Pennungal’.
After the rave reviews that she has got for her performance, Kavya is now being signed to depict Vaikam Muhammed Basheer's famous character 'Kunji Pathumma' on screen.
Kavya will appear as Pathumma in the film 'Ente Uppappakkoraana Undayirunnu' based on a story by the celebrated writer in the same title.
This new venture produced by radiant group will be directed by K P Kumaran.
Mallu hopes of Kavya Madhavan
After dabbling with Kollywood Kavya Madhavan seems to have busied herself with Malluwood now. The actress will be next seen in Siddique’s ‘Sadhu Miranda’ opposite Prasanna. Talking on a press meet, Kavya Madhavan stated, “Though I received good offers in Tamil after ‘Kasi' and ‘En Mana Vaani’, the comfort level that I enjoy in Mollywood made me focus there. Secondly I started as a child artist in Malayalam films and I know everyone here. The offers that I had missed in Kollywood have been used by my friends Bhavana, Meera Jasmine, and Nayanthara. I am not sad because I believe in destiny and what I am bound to get will definitely come to me. Now that ‘Saadhu Mirandaa’ has come my way, I am sure I’ll get more offers after the film’s release.” Sadhu Mirandaa will get released on Feb 08, 2008. Also battling queries on her private life, the actress quipped, “Though I have felt attracted to some men, but I have not fallen in love with anyone. My parents have started looking for a suitable groom for me when I turned 18, but I have postponed marriage for sometime as I need to settle in my career first.”
Kavya Madhavan with mammootty and Mohanlal
Kavya got 2 new films to act as the heroine with Megastars mammootty and mohanlal. Mohanlal's film named to 'Madambi'. Both films will shooting will start soon.
Kavya goes to Telugu ???
It's raining films in Kavya Madhavan's case. Just when the Malayalam film industry thought that she had come to the end of her career, she went on to star in a Tamil film, which directed by Malayalam film make Siddhique.
She lost weight and looks pretty good in the film 'Saadhu Mirandaa'. Since Tamil film industry continues to be crazy about heroines from Kerala, Kavya is enjoying unprecedented popularity in Kollywood right now.
Tollywood too has suddenly become very interested in her and have started approaching her with offers to star in their films!!! But, they say that she might have to become slightly more glamorous with her costumes.
Rumors have now started that Kavya is not that against the idea.
All the other heroines who made their debut after Kavya in Malayalam have become leading actresses in other languages and have already made truck-loads of money. She is now making up for the lost time.
Kavya Madhavan's new film Kangaroo released on Dec 20, 2007
Kavya in Kalabhamazha
Naalu Pennungal Released Today.
Thakazhi Sivasankara Pillai
Cast: Nandita Das, Geethu Mohandas, Padmapriya, Kavya Madhavan
Cinematography: M J Radhakrishnan
Editor: B Ajithkumar
Music: Isaac Thomas
The film distills to a rare purity four tales of village women in south India. Their titles are elemental: The Prostitute, The Virgin, The Housewife and The Spinster. In each, a woman submits to a role society decides for her. Each role offers a paradox of freedom and bondage in nearly equal measure.
In the first story, Kunju Pennu accepts a proposal from Pappukutty and enters into an informal marriage, giving up her profession as a prostitute to do so. Both are desperately poor and live outdoors on the pavement, but they believe in the honour of their new status. That honour is shattered when police catch the couple in a compromising position one night and drag them to court on obscenity charges. Their only defence? They are husband and wife.
In The Virgin, Kumari's parents are happy to marry her off to a man from another village, but disgusted when he returns to visit and eats every last morsel of food they can offer. These scenes are both comic and alarming. After the meal, her new husband leaves, never to return. Kumari must face the shame of the situation, but also the ironic fact that her husband's only gift to her was the one thing he should have - by traditional right - taken.
The last two stories play out in a similarly trenchant fashion. A housewife is unable to produce a child. An old school friend offers himself to her as a surrogate stud, and his moustache is no doubt tempting. But what of the consequences? And in The Spinster, Nandita Das gives a heartbreaking performance as a woman, whose younger sister marries before her. With spinsterhood fast approaching, she eventually moves in with her sister and husband, but that causes more problems than it solves. She soon opts to face the world on her own.
Naalu pennungal will be released on November.

Athisayan realse prosponded to April 2007
Most popular heroine in the Malayalam film industry
There is little doubt about who is the most popular heroine in the Malayalam film industry at present. With a large number of surveys and figures in her support which claims a 70 percent voting for her, Kavya Madhavan is the undisputed numero uno, finding a place in the hearts of Malayalam film lovers.
The year 2006 is coming to a close. A quick look back at 2006 reveals that Kavya Madhavan and Prithviraj have hogged enough limelight and established a place for themselves firmly in the industry.
Kavya Madhavan acted in half-a-dozen films this year. Her biggest hit of the year Classmates asserted her supremacy in the industry. The actress managed to forge a successful team with Prithviraj and their on-screen chemistry worked wonders.
So many actresses came and went in Malayalam, but Kavya Madhavan remains immovable. There was Meera Jasmine. Then, there was Nayantara. Soon afterwards, there were Renuka Menon and Bhavana…they all came and went, but Kavya Madhavan remained the No 1 actress in Malayalam.
For a while, she faced intense competition from Gopika. But, even that threat is no more.
But, Kavya's biggest nightmare right now happens to be a Tamilian who has made it big in Malayalam- Padhmapriya. After the fabulous debut in 'Kaazcha' and successful appearances with almost all the leading heroes in Malayalam, Padhmapriya tried her luck in Tamil. She couldn't quite become a hit there. So now, she is turning her attention back to Malayalam.
Kavya the queen of Malluwood
Kavya Madhavan is undoubtedly the most popular and successful heroine in Malluwood at present. She rules the hearts of the people of Kerala. Believe it or not, most of the surveys reveal 70 percent voting for her. So, it is clear that she is the number one heroine in Malluwood at the moment.
This prolific actress started her acting career at a tender age of five with ‘Pookaalam Varavaayi’, directed by Kamal. She made debut as a heroine through Lal Jose’s second film ‘Chandranudikunna Dikkil’ with Dileep as her hero. She went on to do films like ‘Kochu Kochu Santhoshangal’, ‘Sahayathrikaykku Snehapoorvam’, ‘Madhuranombarakaattu’, ‘Darling Darling’ and ‘Dosth’. She has been staying at the top ever since grabbing the position through films like ‘Thenkasipattanam’, ‘Oomapenninu Uriyaadappayyan’ and the blockbuster ‘Meesha Madhavan’.
She is seen most of the time with Dileep but he has also acted with other actors like Mohanlal, Jayaram, Mammootty, Suresh Gopi, Jaysuriya, Kunchako Boban, Prithviraj and Indrajeet. Her patience has brought about great dividends. She has built her own empire in Malluwood while her counterparts left for other languages films. She crossed the 50-film mark with Lohithdas-directed ‘Chakkaramuththu’ and her last year’s release ‘Classmates’ was the biggest hit ever in the history of Malayalam cinema.
Her success story is not going to end here. She has the fire in her to go further. So, you can look forward to enjoy many more hit films from her in the years to come.
Who ruled the Malluwood last year?
With the year 2006 ending, it’s time to review and look back at the year gone by. And the revelation is that Kavya Madhavan and Prithviraj ruled the roost last year and hogged the limelight. With this both of them also establishes their foothold at the Malayalam film industry. For Kavya Madhavan it has been a dream year, as she acted in half-a-dozen films and also bagged the biggest hit of the year with ‘Classmates’. The film affirms that she is currently the new queen of the industry. Along side Prithviraj she came up as a successful team, not to mention their onscreen chemistry, which is very striking. Prithviraj also tasted success with ‘Classmates’. Mammooty and Mohanlal had a few hits, but it was Prithviraj who hovered over them. He bagged accolades for his performance and also delivered hits teaming with director Padhmakumar. He also went ahead to establish himself in Tamil films s well.
New film Inspector Garud's shooting started.
