Cinema is a very powerful medium and in a country like India where cinema is an integral part of everyone’s life, it creates a major impact and in some cases, influences the mindset. Given that, whenever few scenes are depicted about a particular community, care is taken not to offend or upset them.
However, that never happened in the case of Brahmins. They were either mocked or imitated in a comic manner. But the recent release ‘Jai Simha’ was an exception. Nandamuri Natasimham Balakrishna came up with a heavy dialogue towards the essence of Brahmins and their mandatory presence as priests in temples.
This touched the hearts of many Brahmins. They invited and felicitated Balayya, producer C Kalyan, director K S Ravi Kumar in Prasad Labs. Now, there is a leak that the upcoming release ‘Achari America Yatra’ has also got a scene like this. The Brahmin associations are now waiting for that movie and if this news is true, they plan to felicitate this team as well.
