While many industries take inspiration from Hollywood for its breathtaking action sequences and quality visuals, nowadays it feels like the Indian film industry is reaching to the point where other industries are taking inspiration from us. Appropriate example for that would be SS Rajamouli‘s outstanding vision in making epic action series Baahubali which made the entire globe to look up to South Indian film industry and we’re immensely proud of that. This magnum opus inspired many regional languages in putting their effort to make quality films. At times when CGI is not our cup of tea Shankar‘s Robo release in 2010 made everyone’s jaw drop with stellar graphics portion in the climax. He wished to create the same magic in sequel Robo 2.0 with high-end graphics more than Robo but failed to do so. Out of nowhere Kannada industry proved their worth with period action drama KGF Chapter-I which broke many records.


Recently Sujith directorial Prabhas, Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho released their trailer well cut with astounding visuals that TFI never witnessed. This film is supposed to release on August 15th but postponed due to CGI work delay. Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff‘s action film War teaser released yesterday. Watching teaser with breathtaking chase scenes makes us realize that grandeur and visual quality has been increasing day by day in Indian cinema.
