Anil Kapoor, the Bollywood actor, recently expressed his thoughts on the current success of south Indian cinema, which has included films such as ‘Pushpa: The Rise,’,’ and the most recent ‘K.G.F: Chapter 2’.
“Thar,” in which Anil Kapoor co-stars with his son Harshvardhan Kapoor, was the subject of a conversation at the trailer launch for his upcoming film “SOUTH has always been known for producing exceptional films, and they have always been at or near the forefront of changing the dynamics of Indian cinema. This is exciting since it means they’re expanding their reach.”
The south Indian cinema, he said, acts as an inspiration for Bollywood and has served as a pillar of strength for the Indian film industry as a whole.
“I began my professional career working on films in the southern United States, and it brings me great joy to see them succeed. They serve as an inspiration, and the more that Bollywood draws inspiration from them, the better it will be for Hindi film as a whole “He went on to say more.
The very first South Indian feature films
‘Keechaka Vadham’ (The Destruction of Keechaka) was the first Madras production, produced and directed by R. Nataraja Mudaliar, who was also responsible for the establishment of the India Film Company Limited.
During the 1920s, silent Tamil language films were made in impromptu settings in and around Chennai and then transported to Pune or Calcutta for technical processing.
The locations were also used for the filming of certain films starring M. K. Thyagaraja Bhagavathar, which were later released. The creation of Bhisma Pratighna, a silent film, in 1921 marked the beginning of the professional career of Telugu performers.
Raghupathi Venkaiah Naidu and his son R. S. Prakash were in charge of the direction of the film. Throughout the decade, the two of them, together with Yaragudipati Varada Rao, would go on to produce and direct scores of films, many of which included theatre players in key parts.
They created a long-lasting precedent by concentrating only on religious subjects; Nandanar, Gajendra Moksham, and Matsyavatar, three of their most renowned performances, were all based on religious characters, parables, and morals, and were all performed in India.
Influencers in the social sphere and stardom
As a result, the Madras presidency was split into linguistic States, which are now known as Karnataka, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu in modern times. The separation signaled the beginning of a new era in the history of South Indian filmmaking.
A regional and private celebration of cinema was held in the language of the individual state. By 1936, the widespread popularity of motion pictures permitted filmmakers to stray away from religious and mythical subjects.
