J for Jillu

This is a character from a movie very close to my heart. A best friend, an excellent musician, the innocent girl with a brilliant sense of humor and down-to-earth simplicity - this character, played by Manorama, has all the qualities of a supporting artiste. A well etched and well analyzed character, Jillu is the best friend of the lead character in the movie. She not only helps relieve his stress but also helps him understand his ego and unites him with his lady love. A true symbol of friendship and character is displayed by Jillu at various junctures.

I've watched his movie a million times and yet each time when this character appears, I somehow lose myself in her charm and wit.
