A true crossover film has to have something of an Indian theme or at least an Indian take on a western theme but the crucial test is it should be able to break cultural barriers and entice audiences everywhere the US and Britainsomething like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
But we have such a big range parading under this rubric it could leave you thoroughly confused: With the rising affluence and influence of the Indian Diaspora, what has really come out is that nothing defines the Indian identity more than the pervasive formative influence of the Mumbaiyya or the regional dream factories - the sensuousness, the melodrama, the gore, the laughter and the tears, the latak-jhatak song and dance sequences in impossibly exotic locales, and the wringing, heart squeezing cathartic effect of it all!

Hyderabad itself can boast of having played a significant part in this much-hyped surge of celluloid creativity, Nagesh Kukunoor leading the way with his Hyderabad Blues, Rockford and Bollywood Calling.
For the Telugu film industry, however, it has been something happening at a distance till now.
Raghavendra Rao, the unquestioned king of box-office for over two-and-a-half decades in the Telugu film industry and eulogised as darsakendra entering the fray by silently launching an English film directed by the renowned Bangalore-based playwright Mahesh Dattani, the situation is in for a change.

Sudigala Shashi, one of the assistant directors, is an engineer-turned-stock broker, educated at IIT, Mumbai and New York who left it all to make a career in films.

Saraswathi Rao, another assistant director, has a master's degree in Television production from England.
Latha Kovelamudi, the creative coordinator, is a leading young architect in Hyderabad. And there is Prakash Raghavendra Rao's son who plays one of the main roles in the film who has a degree in Information Technology.
The music director is Amit Heri from Bangalore, a top class musician who has collaborated with some of the greatest names in Jazz in the US.
Ace photographer, cinematographer and director Rajiv Menon is wielding the camera. And presiding over this team is the genial presence of Dattani, flush with the critical appreciation his first film Mango Souffle has received at international film festivals.
