Gone is that era where the film was developed with the help of the hero. The hero’s name used to be the identity of the film. Now the cinema is in a new era. The real hero of movies is the content. The director who produced the movie based on this is now the real superstar. It’s the director’s thought that movies are getting so great. Especially some South Cinema directors have set new standards through their films. His films have become his identity. Take the movie ‘Bahubali’ itself. Despite the praise of his lead actor Prabhas, the true identity of him is his director SS Rajamouli. Whether it’s the hero Prabhas or Ram Charan or Junior NTR in his movies, it doesn’t matter. The greatness of his films comes from his thinking. His imagination has made pan-Indian movies today. Otherwise, previously the film industry was divided on the basis of languages.
Cinema before and after 2015 will be remembered differently. In the true sense, the golden age of cinema came only after the release of the Bahubali movie in the year 2015. After this, these kinds of movies have been released one after another, which has amazed people. For the first time in the Hindi belt, people who were bored with Bollywood movies understood that cinema can also be of this type, which not only entertains them but also nourishes their feelings and thoughts. Credit for this goes to all the South directors, who have changed both the condition and the direction of cinema through their pan-Indian films. Among them, together with SS Rajamouli, the names of directors such as Prashant Neel, Sukumar stand out.
Let’s meet those directors who are the true superstars of Southern Cinema… 1. SS Rajamouli
SS Rajamouli, one of the best directors of South Cinema, can be called the most successful director at Pan India level. He has directed many successful films from the South, but thanks to ‘Bahubali’ he became famous throughout the country. The whole country liked this movie. His movie ‘Bahubali 2’ is the highest grossing movie in the Indian box office. The film has made a business of 1.8 billion rupees. His recently released movie ‘RRR’ has pushed his victory band a lot. The film, which was released on March 25, has so far made a business of more than 1 billion rupees. The film was made at a cost of Rs 500 crore. In this case, it can be called a hit. The way he presents the Indian culture and glorious history through his films directly reaches the heart of the audience. Rajamouli belongs to the film family. Very few people know that Rajamouli’s full name is Koduri Srisaila Sri Rajamouli. His father’s name is KV Vijayendra Prasad is a famous screenwriter and film director. He has written the history of Bahubali. His cousin MS Keeravani is a music composer and playback singer.

Kannada film director Prashant Neel, who became famous across the country through the movie ‘KGF’, has become an established name in Indian cinema.

He has made and released three movies so far while the movie Salar will be released next year in which the famous actor Bahubali Prabhas has the role. major. Of course, he has only done three movies in his career, but seeing his perfection and storytelling, they compare him to SS Rajamouli. However, Prashant does not consider himself capable of it. He says that he has not yet proven himself in the field of directing. He just wants to do something unique. Well whatever he says, he’s proven with three movies that he’s a long racehorse. All three of his films have been box office hits.
When Bollywood was groaning during the Corona period. After the Hindi movies were hit, theaters were made under the guise of being empty. At the same time the Hollywood movie Spider-Man was released. At that time, director Sukumar, who created a storm at the box office by releasing his movie ‘Pushpa: The Rise,’ needs no introduction. The popularity of the movie ‘Pushpa’ has made him famous throughout the country. The film made a business of around Rs 350 crore while the cost of the film is Rs 180 crore. Not only this, its Hindi version also shocked Bollywood by earning 108 million rupees. On the question of the success of a Pan India film, Sukumar says, “Hindi cinema, Tamil cinema, Telugu cinema, these are all a thing of the past. Now is the time for Indian cinema. If the film is good. The The story will be liked by the audience and its production will be of an international level, so now the audience of all languages is ready to see the film of all the languages of the country. The cinema is breaking the borders of languages. The public he has the taste of good cinema. The stars will still shine in his place, but the film needs to be holistic to be a hit all over India.
