As the decade comes to an end, we can’t help but wonder what these past 10 years has done for the entertainment industry in India, especially for the South Indian film industries. We saw movies like Baahubali breaking the barriers and getting eyeballs from all corners of the world. S.S Rajamouli’s vision helped get global attention to the already content-rich film industries. The other movies that are worth a mention are C/o Kancharapalem (2018), Thithi (2015), U-Turn (2016), Moothon (2019), and Super Deluxe (2019). So what does the new decade have in store for us film buffs? A lot of exciting new movies that have gotten fans looking forward to it. Here is a list of the top South Indian movies to look forward to in 2020.
An upcoming feature film based on the life of Jayalalitha, the actor-turned-politician has gotten many excited for various reasons. One being that Jayalalitha also fondly called as ‘Amma’ is still considered to be an extraordinary figure in Tamil Nadu and other neighboring states. The actress’s death definitely brought a vacuum in the state of Tamil Nadu and in the hearts of many Tamilians. Kangana Ranaut has been roped in to essay this role and the first look of the actress as Jayalalitha looks incredible.
The makers have also revealed the first look of actor Arvind Swamy as MGR.
