Movie lovers , film makers and industry give importance to films of top heroes and speak about the performance of the films, analyse how much collections and shares they grossed and the top directors and banners under which those films are made. However everyone is conveniently forgetting the fact that all the top directors, producers shot to fame only after doing small films under small banners before becoming  famed directors. No one become overnight stars and it is better industry remember that.

Teja shot to fame with a low budget film of Rs 50 lacs ‘Chitram’ which created a sensation collecting Rs 8 crs share. Even ‘Nuvve Kavali’ made by K.Vijay Bhaskar with a budget of Rs 1.8crs went on to collect Rs 20crs. This saw many low budget films like 6 Teens, Show, Aite, Anand, A film by Aravind doing well. Nuvve Kavali stunned all in 2007 while Happy Days created a record of sorts in 2008. However Happy Days cannot be treated as low budget film since its budget is Rs 2.75 crs.
6teens, show, aite, anand, a film by aravind did well. nuvve kavali in 2007 did well. 2008 happy days 2.75 crs film. Films like ‘Ashta Chemma’ starring Nani and Colors Swathi, Krishnudu’s ‘Vinayakudu’, ‘Villagelo Vinayakudu’ and Ravi Babu’s ‘Nachchavule’ featuring Madhavi Latha and Tanish shone on silver screen. Most recently ‘Ee Rojullo’, ‘Avunu’ did well. However many more small films that hit silver screen without a trace. It has to be seen whether small films see silver lining. This requires encouragement from top film makers and industry making theatres available for screening.
