Fictional towns in Telugu cinema: From 'Saindhav' to 'Devara' and more


The Teaser for 'Saindhav' shows that the story is set in Chandraprastha, a fictional town. "My plan is to set some of my future stories as well in this fictional geographical setting," director Dr. Sailesh Kolanu said. Venkatesh, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and a host of others in this action thriller will inhabit the fictional city.

Prabhas' 'Saaho' was set in the fictional Waji City. It is believed that a part of Pawan Kalyan's 'OG' will also be set in a fictional town.

The Sankranthi 2024 release 'Hanu-Man' will be set in a fictional village named Anjanadri. Recently, the less-known 'Anni Manchi Sakunamule' was set in Victoriapuram, something like an Ooty. 'Acharya' was set in Padaghattam. It is believed that Jr NTR's 'Devara' is also set in a fictional coastal town with its own set of rules.

When you set a story in a fictional town, the elements of the story must the exciting enough. If the story is routine or hackneyed or predictable, the fictional setting will actually be counter-productive.
