This chapter examines Kannada films of the 1980s, a period in which some genres in Kannada cinema — the mythological film, the historical film — died out and new genres like the youth film appeared. These new genres were, however, not ‘stable’ like the mythological film, the historical drama, and the family melodrama, and faded away almost immediately. While most films of the late 1980s abandon the traditional signifiers associated with Mysore, there is still evidence in the Kannada films of the late 1980s that it once existed.
