Patriotic films set a new trend - Tollybeats

Patriotic films set a new trend

Updated | January 26, 2018 08:40 IST

For the last several years, Telugu cinema has been filled with typical commercial potboilers, rom-coms and revenge sagas, with only a few patriotic films being made. However, the trend is now set to change as a few people are trying to make patriotic films once again. Interestingly, such films are regularly made in the Hindi film industry.

Chiranjeevi is coming up with a film titled Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, based on freedom fighter Narasimha Reddy from Kurnool, while Allu Arjun-starrer Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India revolves around an honest army personnel, Surya. Last year’s hit film Ghazi revolved around submarine warfare between India and Pakistan. Interestingly, all these films have been helmed by young directors like Surender Reddy (Sye Raa...), Vakkantham Vamsi (Naa Peru Surya...) and Sankalp Reddy (Ghazi).

In the coming two years, there are quite a few Telugu films being made with patriotic backgrounds and one certainly hopes that the trend in Tollywood changes from the regular masala movies.
