Today, we will be taking a look at some noteworthy movies of the power couple Suriya and Jyothika.
The 1999 drama Poovellam Kettuppar marked the first collaboration between Suriya and Jyothika. Their love story also started on the sets of this very film. The movie tells the tale of two music directors Bharathi and Kannan, who work together but decide to part ways because of some frivolous reasons. However, unaware of their parents' differences, their children Krishna, played by Surya, and Janaki, played by Jyotika fall for each other.
After this, Suriya and Jyothika graced the silver screens once again in the 2000 romantic drama Uyirile Kalanthathu. Directed by K. R. Jaya, the movie also starred Sivakumar, Radhika, and Raghuvaran among others in crucial roles. The film talks about a medical student Suriya, played by Suriya, the youngest in the family and highly pampered. He falls for a girl (Jyothika) and decides to meet her family. Meanwhile, his elder brother tries to damage his image in front of his future in-laws.
Their third film together was Kaaka Kaaka. It was a huge success at the box office. Kaakha Kaakha revolves around Anbuchelvan (Suriya), a police officer who fights organized crime in Chennai. His life changes for the better when he meets a simple and sweet schoolteacher Maya (Jyothika).
Next was the 2004 comedy-drama Perazhagan, which features Suriya as a village youth with a hunchback. He covers up his handicap with humor and selfless service to others.
A year later, they again joined forces for another laughter ride Maayavi. By the time the film was out in the theatres, Jyothika and Suriya's relationship was making headlines. While they were still mum about their relationship, the cat was already out of the bag.
