Telugu film industry is the third highest producer of movies in India. Telugu movies have a wide range of audience in South India and Overseas. In fact, most of the highest grossing Indian movies overseas are Telugu movies. Movies of several Telugu stars fetch higher revenues than an average Bollywood movie. Over the past few years, Telugu movies have attracted eye balls national wide and also across the globe. Producing two biggest Indian movies, ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ (2015) and ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ (2017) may have helped the cause. On the flip side of grandeur and commercial viability, the quality in terms of film-making has improved off late. All being said, there’s no denying that Telugu Cinema is undergoing the pinnacle of its glory. So, it’s a given that there is heavy anticipation about new Telugu movies, not just in the Telugu states, but nation-wide.
In one of my previous articles, where I wrote about the best Telugu movies of 2018, I mentioned what a great year Telugu Cinema has had. And in this one, I’m going to give you an idea of whether Telugu filmmakers can follow up on that in 2019. I’ll talk about the most promising movies, the cast and crew of these movies and what to expect from them. While some of these movies are named and have been announced, some are yet to go on floors and are not titled as of now. However, I’ve only taken movies that have been officially announced by the production team or the cast of the film. So read on to find out the 20 most awaited upcoming Telugu movies of 2019.
20. Mudra (2019)
Actor Nikhil has a nag of being in the right movie at the right time. He has been a torchbearer of sorts in making out-of-the-box movies, well, at least out of the box when Telugu Cinema is considered. His films like ‘Swamy Ra Ra’, ‘Surya vs Surya’, ‘Karthikeya’, ‘Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada’, ‘Keshava’ and henceforth have paved way for new concepts and new talents into the Telugu film fraternity. Though 2018 has been a lean year for him, he hasn’t abandoned his style of working with new filmmakers, and ‘Mudra’ is first in the queue. He will be seen along with Lavanya Tripathy, and both of them play journalists. The film is written and directed by debutant Santosh. You can expect a good thriller from this one.
