There has always been a huge fan base in the Tollywood audience for the commercial entertainer with all the action and drama elements. Just like they enjoy commercial movies, Telugu audiences have always loved to watch films that portray the local culture and traditions, be it a small film or a huge one. There are a few instances where directors took the pulse of the audience and made films that mirrored the emotions of the common man. These films sometimes might not be commercial blockbusters, but they always have a special place in the audiences’ hearts. Several movies are made every year, but rarely do they catch the true essence of the place they are made in.
There are a few recent films that fall under this category, which also include Dasara, Care of Kancharapalem, Balagam, Jayamma Panchayathi, Pushpa, Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu, Falaknuma Das, Palasa and many others. These films are made in specific places, showcasing the essence of local people, their emotions, traditions, and even language.

Talking about the most recent ones, Dasara and Balagam, both films were made in different parts of Telangana. They might seemingly come from the same state and have nearly the same accent, but they made people look into different aspects and problems.
Balagam (Priyadarshi and Kavya Kalyanram) is a film that portrays the rooted emotions of a family when the head of the family expires. The film has been transforming people’s perspectives on relationships and death. This film is shot in real-life locations with characters that nearly seem like our family members.
Dasara (Nani and Keerthy Suresh), on the other hand, speaks about a social problem, which is drinking. This film has all the raw emotions revolving around friendship, love, and local politics. The film has a special sequence for the Bathukamma, which is the soul of Telangana.
Falaknuma Das (Vishwak Sen) is a film that shows the other side of Hyderabad. The true Hyderabadi can connect with all aspects of the film. The director and actor of the film, being born and brought up in Hyderabad, have mirrored it in raw form.
Pushpa (Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna) is a film made against the backdrop of the untouched territory of Rayalaseema. The film deals with red sandalwood smuggling in Seshachalam Hills in Chittoor. The local accent and the traditions like the Gangamma Thalli Jatara and other local culture have been well portrayed in the film.
Care of Kancharapalem, made in 2018, is a perfect showcase of people and their beliefs, no matter where they are from or what religion they believe in. The film is set against the backdrop of a village named Kancharapalem in Visakhapatnam. It is made in real-life locations, making it easy for the makers to catch the true form of people there.
Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu) is a true example of how people in Godavari districts live and value others. The film has no names for the roles in it, making it easier for people to imagine themselves in the place of the characters. The characters are so simple, but the emotions they portray have great depth.
Rangasthalam (Ram Charan and Samantha) depicted the relationship between the two brothers and those around them. The film covered the traditions and culture of the Godavari region. The film has a few elements that other parts of the state might be new to, like when the hero uses old techniques to find the whereabouts of the antagonist.
All the above films have one thing in common, which everyone who witnesses them can relate to. That is the emotion they carry towards the traditions and the connection they have to the places they live in. This might be the main reason why people love watching them again and again—just to remember how Cinema is the true form of Life.
