The vast Telugu Film Industry is inhibited by many artistes donning
different types of roles in movies. Out of the many artistes about
whom we are aware of, there are a couple of artistes who are termed
Stars, Kings, Queens, Gems by their respective fans or by some
leading industry-wallahs. But very often we realize that there
are only a few artistes who really act and even few among them
are artistes who act naturally.
Actors ?? what does that phrase mean???. In my opinion, Natural
Actors are actors who make us believe that they are living
naturally in that role. In this article, we will try to analyze
about those artistes who are commonly believed by one and all
as Natural Actors. We will try to analyze about some of
those actors who have acted in all types of roles like Hero, Character
artist, Villain, comedy roles etc. The artistes whom we will talk
about today are Nagayya, S.V. Ranga Rao and ChandraMohan.
us first talk about Chittori Nagayya. The name Nagayya reminds
about an excellent artist of Telugu Film Industry who literally
lived in all the roles that he acted in. His firm voice, dignified
figure, unparalleled face expressions will remain in the hearts
of Telugu Movie lovers till Telugu Movies last. Nagayya's acting
in Bhakta Pothana is probably the best among the
devotee roles( Bhakthi Pathralu) . The way he worships God Rama
in that role literally creates a pious atmosphere wherever the
movie is seen, such was the impact of his performance. He donned
the role of Mahamanthri Thimmarasu to near perfection
in the movie Tenali Ramakrishnudu. Telugu people believe that
Mahamanthri Thimmarasu probably looked like Nagayya. Although
there are many roles that Nagayya acted, he probably specialized
in soft roles.
let us talk about a person who is often called as the Mahanatudu
of the Telugu Film Industry, he is none other than our very own
S.V. Ranga Rao. The name reminds us of those countless
roles which probably none else could have performed that well.
S.V. Ranga Rao, a tall, dignified and a handsome personality that
very few Telugu artistes can compete with, was one among those
few actors who had international recognition, he was adjudged
the best Actor in Jakarta in yester years. The awards that he
got are countless. The roles that brought immense popularity for
him are Nepala Manthrikudu in Pathala Bhairavi,
Ghatotkacha in Maya Bazaar, Duryodana
in Pandava Vanavasam, Keechakudu in Narthana Shala
etc to name a few. His patented "Sahasam Seyara Dimbaka"
is still used by Telugu people in many occasions. He not only
excelled in mythological roles but outperformed many artistes
in family roles. His roles in Gundamma Katha, Pandanti Kapuram
are examples of his acting prowess. Though he acted in many types
of roles, S.V.Ranga Rao probably specialized in mythological roles.
last in our discussion is an actor who is an household name in
every Telugu home , any guesses.. yupp! it is our Chandra Mohan.
Often termed as the lucky star for new heroines, ChandraMohan
has donned many roles to perfection. He is probably one among
those few gifted stars in the Tollywood who has literally done
every kind of role. His contributions as an Hero, character artist,
comedy roles can never be performed by any other artist. His roles
in Siri Siri Muvva, Padahaarella Vayasu, Rangula Ratnam
etc fetched him instant recognition as a hero. His roles in Jayammu
Nischayammu raa, Rendu Rella Aaru are widely appreciated for giving
the audience a feast of healthy comedy. His roles as a character
artist are many, Premante Idera, Iddaru Mithrulu, Krishna Babu,
Chala Bagundi are some of this recent movies. He is probably the
only actor in Tollywood who has acted as a father, brother to
the same hero who he acted as a friend in earlier movies. Though
ChandraMohan acted in many kinds of roles he probably specialized
in comedy roles.
are many actors in the Telugu Movie Industry now, but how many
of them know how to act, probably very few. Let us wish that our
beloved Tollywood gives birth to many such Natural Actors.
