First in Telugu Cinema

‘Two roads diverged in a wood, and
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference’.

These iconic lines by Robert Frost celebrate bravery and vision. It is easy to succeed in the path already charted out by others. But to put your time, effort and money in a pioneering technology, trend, or phenomenon requires nerves of steel.

Since cinema, unlike painting and dance, is more dependent on technology, the pioneers were actually pushing the boundaries of cinema in their own way.

In this article, we look at visionary directors who brought in new trends in Telugu cinema, all part of staple Telugu cinema today.
