Widespread success and critical acclaim (2000–2003)Edit

Her success continued in 2000 with the Tamil films Priyamaanavale with Vijay and Parthen Rasithen with Prashanth. In Priyamaanavale, she played a suffering woman from a premarital agreement. Her performance was labelled by Cinematoday as "a clean family entertainer that with its Indian culture-versus foreign culture theme, would appeal to family audiences" and mentioned that "the script is cleverly crafted", and that "Vijay neatly underplayed his role with Simran as the perfect foil."[31][32] In Parthen Rasithen, a romantic thriller released on 11 August 2000, she portrayed the role of an antagonist for the first time in her career. The film also saw a third collaboration between Simran and Prashanth following Kannedhirey Thondrinal and Jodi. Simran's performance received unanimous critical acclaim, with Prashanth and Simran receiving the "Best Onscreen Couple Award" at the Cinema Express Awards.[33] Hindu wrote "It is a spectacular role for Simran and she has made optimum use of it. A well-etched character that is suspenseful at every turn."[34] Critic Balaji noted "Simran is the star of the show here. Her expressive eyes speak volumes whether radiating happiness or showing fiery anger and her dialog delivery enhances her performance in the second half. Quite possibly the best performance of her career so far."[35] In 2013, Vijay Sethupathi was asked about his favourite romantic moments in cinema and what Valentine's Day means to him. He commented that, "I've always been a huge admirer of Simran. I loved her in films like V. I. P., Once More and Parthen Rasithen".[36] Simran's performance in Parthen Rasithen was featured in JFW magazine's list of "5 Heroines Who Stunned Us By Playing Negative Roles".[37] Similarly, Indiaglitz.com also listed Simran's portrayal in their list of "The Super Villains of Tamil Cinema" and credited her for the success of the film.[38] Her other release Unnai Kodu Ennai Tharuven opposite Ajith Kumar, was a commercial and critical failure.

Her Telugu films Yuvaraju with Mahesh Babu and Goppinti Alludu with Balakrishna were released in the same year and claimed to be average grossers in box office. For Yuvaraju Idlebrain.com stated that "Simran enters the film at the time of interval and dominates the whole second half with her demure and under played emotions. But it's her demure action that won the laurels."[39]

In 2000, she was the leading actress in the highly successful Kalisundam Raa with Venkatesh and Nuvvu Vastavani with Nagarjuna. In the National Award winning hit Kalisundam Raa, she played the female character Mangaa who refuses to sacrifice her love for the sake of her family. Nuvvu Vastavani is the Telugu remake of her own Tamil film Thulladha Manamum Thullum where she reprised her role again. Similar to Tamil, she received unanimous praise for her performance in Telugu. Review from Fullyhyd noted "Simran looks fabulous and emotes as a blind woman realistically".[40]

In 2001, she concentrated on Telugu films and had a mixed year with Mrugaraju and Daddy, with Chiranjeevi and Bava Nachadu, with Nagarjuna. Her movie Narasimha Naidu, which was with Balakrishna, became an industry hit and Simran, who played the role of a wife who becomes the victim for her husband's opponent, was appreciated and gained her a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actress – Telugu.

In the Tamil film Industry, she had only two releases in 2001. Her first release was the directorial debut of cinematographer Jeeva's 12B, opposite then-newcomer Shaam and Jyothika. The plot of the movie is loosely based on the British-American romantic drama film Sliding Doors. Though the film performed modestly at the box office, Simran's role as a young widow with affections for her colleague, was highly appreciated by critics and audience. The Hindu mentioned that Simran does a commendable job in the climax.[41]Rediff.com concluded Simran continues with her policy of shifting gradually from glam roles to the more sedate, serious ones and proves to have what it takes.[42] In the same year, she worked with Balachandar in his 100th production venture Paarthale Paravasam paired with Madhavan. The film tells the story of a couple going through a break-up after the husband is exposed of having a pre-martial child. Though the movie was a commercial failure, "Simran" as "Simi" "an obsessed possessive wife", was well received by critics. Lolluexpress.com noted that Simran's performance was "Too good in many places and because of her performance, the movie has something to watch".[43]

In 2002, she starred with Balakrishna in Seema Simham, which was an average grosser. She also starred in several successful Tamil films; Ramana with Vijayakanth, Pammal K. Sambandam & Panchathantiram with Kamal Haasan and Thamizh with Prashanth. In A. R. Murugadoss directed Ramana, she portrayed the wife of a college professor who fights against corruption.

The film tells the story of a child of Sri Lankan Tamil parentage adopted by Indian parents, whose desire is to meet her biological mother in the midst of the Sri Lankan Civil War. The film was a box-office success and was positively received by critics. She won several accolades for her performance for Kannathil Muthamittal, including a Filmfare award and was also briefly considered for the National Film Award for Best Actress, however, due to the fact that she did not dub for the role, she was not chosen as the winner. In an interview with Hindu, Mani Ratnam stated that Simran was one of the most talented female artists, along with Manisha Koirala, Aishwarya Rai and Revathi.
