Though both of them were commercial failures,[6] her performance in the latter fetched her critical acclaim. IndiaGlitz in ints review called Tamannaah as the "real scene-stealer" and stated that she "walks away with all honors", adding that her characters have shades of the characters played by Vijayashanti in Mannan (1992) and Ramya Krishnan in Padayappa (1999).[7]

Pavithra Srinivasan of Rediff.com stated that Tamannaah's "would-be innocence when she's playing up to Sidharth, and slight cunning when she chooses Radhakrishnan is perfect" adding that she brought her character Madhumitha "to life, an alluring mix of child and woman; irritating, sly, yet arousing your sympathy in the climax".[31]

Tamannaah later appeared in R. Kannan‍‍ '​‍s Kanden Kadhalai, the official remake of Jab We Met (2007) co-starring Bharath and her voice was dubbed by playback singer Chinmayi.[32] Kanden Kadhalai opened to decent feedback from critics and Tamannaah's performance won praise from them.[33][34] A reviewer from Sify stated, "Funny and full of life, it is Tamannaah who is the heart and soul of this love story. She has come up with a live wire performance and the magic of the film lies in her performance", adding that no actress in Tamil cinema could play that role better than her though she did not look like a Thevar girl hailing from Theni.[35] Her performance in the film earned her a nomination at the 57th Filmfare Awards South in the Best Tamil Actress category, making her the only actress to earn two nominations in two different languages at that event.[23] She also won the South Scope award for the same.[36] During this phase, she was established as an undisputed top actress in Tamil cinema.[2][30]

A reviewer from IndiaGlitz stated that Tamannaah "stole the show in the film" and "doesn't over act or underplay her role anywhere". The reviewer added that She "is drop dead gorgeous and steals your heart with her beauty" and "wins on two counts-one is her endearing action and two is her insanely adorable looks".[48] The film became one of the biggest commercial successful Telugu films of 2011.[49] She earned a nomination each at the 59th Filmfare Awards South and 1st South Indian International Movie Awards in the Best Telugu Actress category.[50] She also won the Best Actor Female awards at CineMAA Awards 2012 and The Hyderabad Times Film Awards 2011.[51][52]

Her looks in the film became debatable considering her girl-next-door looks sported in her previous films.[53] The film received mixed to negative reviews from critics. Suresh Kavirayani of The Times of India felt that Tamannaah was "energetic, but there was unnecessary skin show even in scenes that didn't seem to require it".[54] However the film became a notable success at the box office.[55] She earned a nomination at the CineMAA Awards 2012 in the Best Actor Female category.[56]

She played the role of a village girl in Hari‍‍ '​‍s Venghai co-starring Dhanush which she called a "subtle and underplayed" character.[57] Both the film and her performance opened to mixed reviews from critics,[58][59] with Pavithra Srinivasan of Rediff.com stating that Tamannaah "appears neatly attired in classy dresses but suddenly takes to wearing skimpy clothes that display her midriff" and looks "so dazzlingly white that you want to reach for your sun-glasses".[60] Her next release Oosaravelli co-starring N. T. Rama Rao Jr. and directed by Surender Reddy opened to mixed reviews from critics,[61][62] and was a commercial failure.[63]
