Larger than life image and macho dialogues have been vogue. No matter how far they could be from reality. If something is liked by people or a section of people, that becomes a trend which continues till a spoof is made out of it. Off late, directors penning dialogues, punch lines and one-liners to show the valor of heroes have become a fashion.
From ‘Pokiri,’ it was Mahesh Babu’s ‘Yevadu Kodithe Dimma Tirigi Mind Block Avuthundo Aade Pandu Gadu’ which then followed to ‘Businessman’ which has ‘Confusion Lo Ekkuva Kottesthanu’ or ‘Mumbai Ko Pishaap Karrwaane Aayaa Hoon.’ Then we have, popular ‘Okkkokkanni Kaadu Sher Khan…Vanda Mandini Oke Saari’ or Balakrishna’s brand ‘Nee Oorochcha…Nee Nattintikochcha’ and the like.
Now ‘Dammu’ has gone one step ahead in fact ten steps as Jr. NTR says, ‘Nenu Kodithe…Padi…Padi Tharaala Varaku Nee Vamsamlo Magaadu Puttadaanki Bhaya Padathaadu.’ It may sound ridiculous but people get excited at that moment and Fans lap them up. In a sense this is not entirely a new trend. Even in olden days heroes were given more valor than what the character can carry but if it exceeds the acceptable levels then thrill will be limited only to Fans irrespective of who the artiste is.
