Tollywood witnessed many movies on God of Death Yama. Right from the top stars to young heroes, top film directors to young directors all came up with films on God of Death Yama.
What surprises analysts is in all the films, God of Death Yama and his assistant Chitra Gupta who registers the sins of millions are shown as comedians.
To the top of it, movie lovers did not find fault with the makers or stars for showing God of death in such a manner as compared to other Hindu Gods.
This makes many wonder why movie lovers love Yama. Some psychologists say, everyone fears Yama and right from the childhood, they grew up hearing stories demonizing Yama that he would punish sinners in an unforeseen manner.
This fear turned them to exact revenge on Yama and so when the makers and stars made fun of Yama and Chitragupta, they thoroughly realised as though they themselves are exacting revenge punishing God of Death.
The most successful film involving Yama is Yama Gola by NTR and Yamudiki Mogudu involving Chiranjeevi. NTR featured in Yama Donga.
