Over the years, Tollywood has become a synonym for action movies. Telugu cinema with fierce action and mass backdrop make the best combination for viewers and it's always a powerful antagonist who makes an action movie live and interesting.
Telugu cinema has witnessed a lot of actors who have portrayed deadly villain characters, who sometimes have even overtaken the protagonists in terms of performances. It has also been noted of late that the then heroes like, Suman and Jagapathi Babu have taken the negative shade route and are successful in grabbing the audiences' attention.
Now, imagine a movie with few familiar names of the industry as antagonists. Yes, they are popular, well-known and are the top level directors of the celluloid world.
These three fabulous film-makers don't just have it in them to stand behind the camera and calling shots, but their looks and appeal can elevate them into the negative shade on screen as well.
With his beard and rugged look, the Aarya 2 director can project himself as a baddie in a movie set against a village backdrop. Sukumar with his appearance can clad himself in a dhoti and mouth a handful of dialogues in local Telugu dialect. This director who deals with class scripts can turn into a mass villain which can make the scenario even more interesting for the audience and fans to watch on silver screen
There is no hard and fast rule that only heroes need to look appealing and hot. Even directors can look extremely charming and one such director is Trivikram Srinivas. Guruji, who always been magical with his pen and writing has got that ability to mesmerize audiences with his on-screen appearance as well.
The handsome hunk director can turn himself into a suave negative actor who could mouth English mixed Telugu dialogues, characterizing himself as a business tycoon. A similar role to Jagapathi Babu's character in Nannaku Prematho would ideally fit the bill for our classy director.
Here comes the man of the moment. The show stealer who is the talk of the town is always seen busy in wielding megaphone. Not many know that Rajamouli rehearses and even enacts sequences to actors for him to get the desired output. It's a well-known fact that Rajamouli can emote well and also has this dynamic presence which can present him on screen.
With his present makeover, our Bahubali maker can snap at least one chance as a rival to one of our Tollywood stars. A character which can communicate ferocious expression through eyes, converse very less dialogues and carry out the entire character through intensity and mute aggression.
