Let us recollect the memories of the movies of our vintage Pawan Kalyan.
Pawan Kalyan gave the Telugu audience a fresh and unique experience with the sports action film Thammudu. The film became a trendsetter then, with many never-before-seen elements. Thammudu is the first film in which Telugu audiences can experience the true and original version of kickboxing on Telugu big screens. Pawan Kalyan was seen as a professional kickboxer in the film. In the song Travelling Soldier, we can witness Pawan Kalyan undergoing real physical training for the film. This kind of real heroism brought a huge following for Pawan Kalyan. The Telugu audience, particularly the youth, went mad for him. Pawan Kalyan’s energy and dance moves in the song Made In Andhra are unmatchable even today. He is a true youth icon. Pawan Kalyan’s dressing sense and style in Vayyari Bhama song attracted millions of youth. His intensity in the final ring fight, his comedic timing in phone conversations, his innocence after a dispute with his father and what not. The list goes on, to love the power star in Thammudu.
Pawan Kalyan is the king himself when it comes to playing the role with attitude and swag. Badri, which was released in 2000, is a perfect example of that. His face-off with Prakash Raj in the film is still the best one between a protagonist and antagonist in Telugu cinema to date. Their face-off has a separate fan base even today. Pawan Kalyan’s attitude and arrogance in portraying the lead character uplifted the spirit of the film a step higher. The songs I am an Indian and Ye Chikitha are the perfect examples of Pawan Kalyan’s taste and choice to attract the youth for his movies. The one-liners delivered by Pawan Kalyan are the main highlights of the film and they are being used even by the youth today, after two decades.
Pawan Kalyan fixed his position in the hearts of all kinds of audiences with the film Kushi. This romantic comedy movie has all kinds of elements in it, so it attracted all age groups. Pawan Kalyan’s character as Siddhu in the film Kushi is a memorable one for ages. His on-screen pairing with Bhumika Chawla is the best to date and is unbeatable. In the film, Pawan Kalyan looks very handsome, classy and stylish at the same time. Ye Mera Jaha created madness among the youth and Pawan Kalyan became much closer to the youth.
