I think Sridhar is right. The quality in terms of songs deteriorated very bad 
from then. I know the furore it caused in film industry
for the movie "gulebhakavali katha' for using teh words in the popular song
"Nannu dochukonduvate.." When we look back in retorspect the words 'dochukonduvate'
don't seem that bad, but at that time they vweher considered very bold
 and so where the dialogues in "lakshama katha or sri lakshamma katha"
 "maa ammayiki soodhi injection cheyyandi doctor'; or something in those lines.
 They were considered dialogues of double etendre. But in dasar bullodu
 and premnagar we have single meaning dialogues like 
 'vanguthunna chinnadi vampulanni vunnadhi' 
 I think this is an impritant topic to be further discussed to draw a line where
 the quality of language took a nosedive.
