There used to be a misconception among north Indian people about South Indian films. If it is a Telugu/Tamil film, stupid fight scenes with an illogical screenplay.
If it is a Malayalam film, B-grade movie that is intended only for adults. If it is a Kannada film, they don’t even know there existed Kannada films.
Now the trends have changed. It all started with S.Shankar and Rajinikanth’s “Shivaji: The Boss” which opened the Hindi box office with flying colors during its run. Then came Jakkanna’s “Bahubali: The Begining” which erased the linguistic barriers for cinema. North Indian Filmmakers started to look down on South Indian filmmakers for stories.
Not only the big-budget films but also films like Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Arjun Reddy, Ratsasan (Tamil), and Goutham Thinnanuri’s Jersy are very impressive with the stories. Top production houses in Hindi acquired the remake rights for these films.
On the other hand, Kannada director Prashanth Neel mesmerized every movie lover with his impeccable taking. KGF went on to create huge records for any Kannada film. Now, KGF-2 the sequel will hit the screens and this time, makers are expecting more from the Hindi box office.
And then came the Sukumar-Allu Arjun’s Pushpa, which became the biggest superhit and is the holder of all non-bahubali records. Now, Rajamouli’s #RRR is successfully running in theaters and started breaking all possible Indian box-office records.
Now, the next step in this revolutionary transformation is in progress. Robo director S.Sankar is now working directly in Telugu with Mega Power Star Ram Charan. Similarly, Linguswamy and Venkata Prabhu also have some direct Telugu projects under the pipeline.
Our Telugu directors Vamshi pydipalli and Venky Atluri are working with Tamil super stars Vijay Talapathi and Dhanush respectively. Atlee, Raja Rani director working with king khan Sharukh for his next project.
All these projects are PAN INDIA films.
