Jayaram has been able to pull off negative roles too with ease and one such movie was ‘Dhaam Dhoom’ starring Jayam Ravi and Lakshmi Roy. The recent movie to add under his negative role would ofcourse be ‘Thuppaki’ which released in 2012, where he shares the screen with none other than our Ilayathalapathy Vijay. ‘Saroja’ cannot be forgotten in this list where jayaraman was widely appreciated for the way he portrayed the character given to him. This movie by Venkat Prabhu was released in the theatres in the year 2008. One can say Nala Damayanthi is one of those movies which brought to the light, that Jayaram being the versatile actor that he is can also pull off such roles and yet again in this movie Jayaram is seen with wonderful actors like our Chocolate Hero Maddy and Geetu Mohan Das.

Ofcourse, Jayaram is best known for his dialogue delivery and the way he brings out humor in his role. Did ‘Panchatantiram’ strike your head? Well ofcourse, this blockbuster with Ulaganayan is still all our favourites, isn’t it? Talking about his interactions with the Ulaanayagan, another movie that we have to definitely add to this list would be thenali where he plays a negative role but in a very comical manner.

Jayaram ofcourse has contributed immensely to the Tamil Cinema. Time to wait and watch what we have in-store for this year.
