Open letter to Telugu film dialogue writers and lyric writers

To the Telugu film dialogue writers and lyric writers,

This is to convey that in the recent movies, the lyrics and dialogues are mixed up too much with English words every here and there. Please reduce this practice. I do not have to remind you that Telugu language is beautiful and vast enough in itself to express all that one has to.

I understand that there are lot of English words usage in everyday conversational language, especially in Urban areas and with people living abroad. May be you (the dialogue writers and lyricists) are trying to achieve the same effect in the movie. Especially if the story is a urban based one, if you pay attention to dialogues and lyrics, it is amazing to see how much we are forgetting our language. It is my opinion that there is no need to go overboard to achieve the originality of our every day language. If using so much English is necessary, then one can produce a movie like 'Mitr - My Friend' to be enjoyed by everyone alike. I am not suggesting to go to the extent of a mythological movie and have no English words at all. Please use as many Telugu words as possible and try to preserve the beauty of the language through your work. May be this is a good way for the Telugu kids living all over the world including Andhra, who do not get enough exposure to Telugu, to get an essence of the language.

Telugu cinema is the easy access to our language and culture to people all over the world (Telugu and non-Telugu). So when a non-telugu speaking person watches a Telugu movie (I am sure there are people who do that), he sure will get a doubt if there is no telugu word for the dialogue that was uttered in half Telugu and half English. Recently, I started watching some Tamil movies (new releases) - I do not understand Tamil, so I read the subtitles. Do not get me wrong for comparing, but they use lot less! English words in the dialogues when compared to us.

It is sad to see that English words have their place in songs too. A lyric can never be as beautiful as it is in its original form and not mixed up with English just because it seems to come handy everywhere there is a difficulty to pen lyrics with the right word.

This is just my opinion and is not meant to hurt any body.
