In spite of other media industries such as Radio, Print and Television adapted to using digital technologies, the cinema industry stuck in celluloid medium itself until second decade of 21st century until the computational power got increased exponentially. Though the digital use started in 1990s it took three decades for the Industry to completely adapt to digital medium. The celluloid medium acted as barrier for experimenting different content due to its nature that demands heavy expenses, complicated workflow and man power. Digital technologies opened up the barriers laid by celluloid technology thus expanded the horizons for creative experiments and an invitation for new entrants due to its user friendly simplicity in nature. Twenty first century fosters the Indie film movement where many young minds are encouraged to get into movie making with cheaper digital tools that are available. The blockbuster success and critically acclaimed six Telugu debut talents movies that were released in the year 2019 cite an example of how the film industry is getting changed towards ease and lighter way. Many indie movies started coming out with fresh approaches in the content and structure. A sneak preview of OTT platforms like Amazon Prime, Netflix, YouTube Channels and a host of other online video platforms is a standing testimony for democratization of creativity in the field of cinema. Entry of corporate firms and the new promising technologies the industry is getting more opportunities to their wings on different app based viewing platforms.
