Shiva, which attained cult status, is considered Nagarjuna’s breakthrough film. It is credited with the introduction of steadicam and new sound recording techniques in Telugu cinema, encouraging filmmakers to explore a variety of themes and make experimental films. For the April 2013 centennial of Indian cinema, CNN-News18 included Shiva on its list of 100 greatest Indian films of all time. Its Tamil-dubbed version, Udhayam, was also successful.
