Probably for the first time, a Telugu filmmaker is giving tribute to a Hollywood cinematographer. So kudos to ace director Krishna Vamsi who himself is a ace technician showing the pictures of legendary Hollywood cinematographer Tony Scott (who passed away in 2012) with a ‘will miss you’ card at the beginning of his film “Paisa” was a commendable effort. Scott won appreciation for his innovative work in blockbusters like “Man on Fire”, “Unstoppable”, “Beverly Hills Cop 2” and “True Romance” and for his elegant lighting and camera angles.
Along with admiration of Hollywood films and technicians, Krishna Vamsi also set a precedent for others to follow suit. Even though most of T-town filmmakers are Hollywood buffs, but they rarely displayed their liking openly, so Vamsi stands out.
