Though Telugu cinema is famous for its mainstream masala potboilers, there is always a special place for historical and period backdrop movies. In fact, one look at the black and white era would unravel so many classic masterpieces which can never be forgotten and watched multiple times.
You have already seen how Baahubali was received. Now, the talk is about the genre of megastar Chiranjeevi’s movie. Some are suggesting maybe he also needs that. They are quoting how Nandamuri Natasimham Balakrishna’s 100th movie Gautamiputra Satakarni is getting craze.
The same happened for the National Award winner Kanche. If the same movie was done with contemporary background the kick wouldn’t have come. That historical feel is very special. For now, Chiru is planning to continue with the mainstream genre so curtains dropped on this suggestion then.
