Yugandhar

1979 159’ col Telugu d K.S.R. Doss pc Gajalakshmi Arts st Salim- Javed dial D.V. Narasaraju lyr C. Narayana Reddy, Acharya Athreya, Veturi Sundara Ramamurthy c U.C. Shekhar m Ilaiyaraja lp N.T.

Early example of the impact of the Prakash Mehra and Salim-Javed styles on Telugu cinema, an idiom assimilated by NTR in his later work (cf. Vetagadu, 1979). A kind smuggler unfortunately kills Ramesh, whose sister Jaya vows revenge, but then falls in love with the hero. This genre confirmed several female stars (e.g. Sridevi and Jayapradha) who went on to perform the same roles in Hindi, and provided welcome platforms for 50s stars like Anjali Devi or G. Varalakshmi to play tearful mother roles. The genre also includes cabaret scenes with Jayamalini and Silk Smitha.
