IR and ARR have created certain drum rhythms that have become widely used by other MDs both in the North and the South. A few egs.
1) The beat from "Rakkamma" in Thalapathi
Widely used by North MDs in numerous songs.
2) The beat from "Rasave" Walter Vetrivel..
It went on to be adapted and used numerously by the likes of Deva and Sirpi. ARR paid a digital tribute to it in the "Ottagatha" number in Gentleman.
1) The synth bass rhythm that he first used in "Kaadhal Rojave" and "Netru Illadha Matram" set the trend for other MDs to add it in their romantic numbers
2) Congo/Bongo/Synth drum interludes.. a style that has many MDs emulating it today
Are there more and some that I've missed ?

u r 100pc true. In fact today's composers are treading on the path laid by The Maestro Ilayaraaja. I know little about Raaja's TFM but almost all of his Telugu compositions myself being a telugu native. Many of his instruental beats/rhythms and drums prominently are embraced both in North and also by his south contemporaries and budding composers.
Listes are his Telugu scores
1. Chilakamma (Dalapathi)
2. Abba nee thiyyani debba (Jagadekaveerudu Athiloka sundari)
3. Nelaraajaa (Surya IPS)
Composers have imbibed chorus in the beginning of the song from
Thella cheeraku (Aakhari poraatam)
However a few composers in Telugu now and then lift pallavis of (0.1pc) but some are satisfied with lifting the chorus (humming) in the middle of the song ie between the charanams. Ok granted.
Ok, let them embed their ornaments with precious pearls.
