Tollywood Bytes

June 23, 2008

Off late I have been watching a number of movies and I couldn’t stop myself from writing a blog on the somehow strange coincidences in tollywood movies. Almost all movies follow a similar pattern. Though the number of out-of-the-box films are increasing, this number is very less when compared to the normal movies. Here are some fundas one will generally observe in a typical telugu movie.

One thing everyone will for sure not miss is that a movie will have a minimum of 5-6 songs: one the introduction of either the hero or the heroine, 2-3 duet songs, 1 song when the hero-heroine pair breakup, 1 item song and one song in which all the main characters will be covered and are singing and dancing happily.

If it is a big hero picture then there will be a minimum of 2 heroines excluding the item song dancer. The hero will be introduced either by a fight scene or a song. And if he is introduced by a fight scene a song will immediately follow. And during the initial scenes of heroine entry, in most cases flowers will be falling and that too only on her.

Almost every film’s audio release will be star-studded and irrespective of the success or failure of the audio of the movie, the films’ crew will be celebrating 6platinum disc functions… Even though the film is a dud, the movie will be named as a big hit at least for 2-3 weeks.

In 95% of the films one among the hero/heroine pair will be a rich brat and other one will be a poor person. And in almost all movies the love story begins with a fight.

In most of the movies which have been made in the past 4 or 5 years, mostly the villain will be the heroines’ brother. Even though the villain fires bullets at the hero, he will miss most of them and even if he is hit by a bullet, it will be on hand or thigh, and irrespective of the number of bullets that went into the body the hero will survive. And if at all he dies, he will surely have a rebirth or his soul will enter into the body of someone else and take revenge. But the villain will die coz of a single bullet.

However big the crime committed by the hero may be he will serve a minimal period in jail that too in very less cases, coz in the rest of the cases the police (mostly CBI) officer who will investigate the case will tell the hero that “You did a good thing so I’ll not arrest you”

And the last scene of the film will mostly be that the lead pair will be walking with their hands held together.
