"Only as high as I reach can I grow, Only as far as I seek
can I go, Only as deep as I look can I see, Only as much as I
dream can I be" said somebody. These words effectively sum
up the enthusiasm and effervescence of a whole bunch of young
and enthusiastic directors entering the dreamy world of Tollywood
these days. They wanna reach greater heights. They wanna seek
fame by treading unconquered territories. They wanna look beyond
their dreams for their dreams are today's answers to tomorrow's
questions. From 'wanna-be' to 'busy-bee', these new directors
are reaching their flowery destinations with a lilting buzz to
extract honey and spread their own flavor of savory syrup in the
hearts of cinegoers.

storywriter, screenplay writer and a dialogue writer. While most
of the directors have already been writing their own screenplays
(since a long time) apart from directing movies, a new trend that
is conspicuous among most of the directors these days is - they
providing story and dialogues to their movies apart from heading
the screenplay and direction departments. Being multi-faceted
seems to be the order of the day. Being versatile sure is the
ruling factor today.
and popular directors like Teja
and Nijam (in production)) and Poori Jagannath (Badri,
Bachi, Itlu Sravani
Subramanyam and Idiot (in production)) give story,
dialogues and screenplay to all their ventures apart from being
at the helm of directing their movies. Debutantes like Kasi
Leka Nenu Lenu), Dasaradh
and highly successful story-cum-dialogue writer Trivikram Srinivas
Nuvvu Naaku Nachhav,
etc.), who is the recent one to be bit by the direction bug, are
some of the others who believe in directing their own stories
and also writing their own dialogues.
the above directors pen their own dialogues for their movies,
directors like Krishna Vamsi (Gulabi, Ninne Pelladatha,
Sindhooram, Chandralekha, Anthapuram, Samudram,
Choudhary (Sree Seetha Ramula Kalyanam Chootamu Rarandi,
Lahiri Lahiri Lahirilo),
(Tholiprema, Yuvakudu, Vasu),
Seenu Vytla (Nee Kosam, Aanandam),
VV Vinayak (Aadi),
Raghu Raj (Kalusukovalani),
Shekar Suri (Adrustam),
who steer the story, screenplay and direction departments, are
depending on other dialogue writers like, successful and reliable
Paruchuri brothers, Ramana Chintapally, Trivikram, Marudhuri Raja
and relatively new dialogue writers like Vakkantham Vamsy, Viswanath,
Mohan Vamsi, Vijaya Kumar, for dialogues.
from our very own directors, eminently successful directors of
Bollywood, with blockbusters to their credit, like Sooraj Barjatya
(Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Hum Saath Saath Hain,
Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon (in production)), Aditya Chopra
(Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Mohabbatein, Na Jaane Pyar Kaise
Ho Gaya (in production)), Karan Johar (Kuch Kuch
Hota Hain, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham) and Farhan Akhtar
(Dil Chahta Hain) who provide story, dialogues and
screenplay to their movies, are also a source of inspiration to
the thousands of aspiring and talented movie buffs with multiple
talents, waiting to enter the film industry.
of the directors entering the industry these days have a couple
of stories ready with them. Some inspired, some copied and some
of them, their own creative work. Once they get hold of a producer
and a hero, some extra talented directors start working on the
dialogues while the others find refuge with popular dialogue writers.
Translating their story into a gripping screenplay is by no means
a Herculean task for these eager-to-prove-themselves aspirants.
So once they are all set, they enter the bandwagon as the captain
of the ship curious to go on a cruise taking the audience with
them. Some of them sail successfully while some others sink like
Titanic taking all of us down with their sloppy product. But one
