Karthika Adaikalam is a Tamil actress who vanished away after acting in a few Tamil movies. She is one star who seemed to be on her way to being a Kollywood star with a good look and talent. She appeared in ‘Thoothukudi’ a gangster film released in 2006, which did well in rural areas. She also made her presence felt in’
Raman Thediya Seethai’ (2008) alongside five actors and four actresses. But after that, there hadn’t been any bigger breaks coming from the Karthika Adaikalam corner. Hence, the industry had written her off totally. But in 2015, she was just heard of appearing in a movie which is yet to take off. When she appeared in ‘Thoothukudi’, everyone had thought we had seen the birth of a new leading heroine in Kollywood. But that was not to be.
She appeared in different movies over the years, but she could not match the box office success. It is a little harsh to call Karthika Adaikalam a one-hit wonder because she actually appeared in three average hit movies. In a film like ‘Naalaiya Pozhuthum Unnodu’, she looked very cute, and her performance was very commendable, Karthiga did the vulnerable job in a few movie that she appeared, but her male co-star was not that appalling. She had connoted herself well with few movies that she had acted. In ‘Pirappu’(2207), she acted with Prabha but as the film had the same old romance tale of a boy and girl, the film did not fare well in box-office. She acted with all average heroes like Hari Kumar, Prabha, Prithi, P. Kumaran, Deepu, and Yuva Karthik, etc. It is difficult to have a huge movie hit with less popular stars that is exactly the case with Karthika. Even in many of her movies, casting has not been the very perfect hence it was interesting to see her career turned out to be vanishing or not. After 2010, she was not visible on the screen at all. However, even after acting in eight films, she has not really propped up in any hit movies. She was born on May 3, 1991, in Thirukadaiyur, Tamil Nadu.
