What are the merits and demerits of the actors of the past and present generations?Cinema is the most entertaining media of any generation. I am a person who has seen many actors of present as well as past generations. Actors of great caliber are there in the present as well as in the past. In general, actors of past generation used to take utmost care in their makeup, voice modulation, control in ascent of tone, way of expression of their dialogues etc. Actors used to act with great devotion.
Actors like Savithri, Krishna Kumari, Jamuna, Bhanumathi, Nirmalamma, Suryakantham, S.V. Ranga Rao, Gummadi, A.N.R., NTR etc. used to express their dialogues with their eyes as well as their body in a superb way in Telugu. Some of the old movies which were taken in B/W in the past appears to be greater than the movies which were produced in color.
One thing I don't like in the past pictures is, some of the actors used to express their dialogues like in dramas which is somewhat irritating. In Hindi movies also we watch so many actors expressing their dialogues in a drama like fashion. In Hindi movies I like Amithab who expresses his dialogues in a free natural way.
In present day pictures, we are not seeing actors with perfect dialogue expression since the actors are not good at their local language. But most of the present day generation actors are expressing their dialogues in a natural way as we talk like among the family members. But many of the actors are not giving importance to showing their feelings in their dialogue expressions. Members express your feelings regarding the merits and demerits of actors of present and yesteryear's.
