Telugu filmmaker Trivikram Srinivas is fondly known as 'Maatala Mantrikudu' (Wizard of Words) by his fans and industry people. The director started his career as a dialogue writer with Swayamvaram in 1999. He made his directorial debut with Nuvve Nuvve in 2002. And for the last two decades, Trivikram has been mesmerising the audience with his subtle yet so powerful dialogues.

He is one of the most sought after directors in the Telugu film industry currently. One of his directorials, the Mahesh Babu and Anushkha Shetty starrer Khaleja finished 10 years recently, and Mahesh Babu announced that there is another movie on the cards with the same director. Meanwhile, there is also a project with Junior NTR, which will mark the actor's 30th film.

Trivikram’s dialogues and directorials have elevated the image of several stars, becoming milestones in their careers. For example, Jalsa for Pawan Kalyan, Athadu for Mahesh Babu, Julai for Allu Arjun, and Aravinda Sametha for Junior NTR. This is also why stars are keen to continue their association with the director. 

Trivikram’s dialogues are never superficial; they are taken from real life, and this makes people connect to his characters, going past the fact that they're fictional. He won the Nandi Award for Best Dialogue Writer for movies such as Nuvve Nuvve, Chiru Navvutho, Nuvvu Naaku Nachav, Malliswari, Athadu and Atharintiki Daaredi. There's a separate fanbase just for his dialogues. Here are some of those lines that have touched a chord with many.

This is a famous dialogue from Julai which was released in 2013. The movie has Allu Arjun and Ileana D'Cruz in the lead roles.

When the police officer doesn't believe him, Ravi says this line.
