At his zenith of fame, EVV had almost wielded a regal power over the realm of comedy in movies.
Today is 60th Birth Anniversary of E.V.V Satyanarayana, well-known for his comic vision. He was a critically acclaimed Indian film director, writer and producer who was a phenomenon in Telugu Cinema at making comic films. He used to have a great ability at making tickling comedy films and used to be considered as the best ever after his mentor Jandyala in Tollywood.
EVV Satyanarayana’s directorial debut ‘Chevilo Puvvu’ was an average film. He was so depressed and contemplated leaving the film industry, but his destiny changed when producer Dr D. Ramanaidu gave him a chance to direct ‘Prema Khaidhi’ which screened successfully. Then he followed the path of his guru Jandhyala and made many successful comedy movies.
The first flick in the comedy genre was ‘Appula Appara’ with hilarious comedy. His association with actor Rajendra Prasad created waves and he also directed with star heroes like Venkatesh, Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna and Nagarjuna. He is the one who introduced Power Star Pawan Kalyan as a hero with ‘Akkada Ammayi Ikkada Abbayi‘.
Beyond his enormous impact on popular comedy in the Telugu tinsel world, EVV laid thrust on making full-fledged family entertainers like ‘Aame’, ‘Thaali’, ‘Intlo Illaalu Vantintlo Priyuralu’, ‘Ammo Okato Taariku’, ‘Chaala Bagundi’ and ‘Aayanaki Iddaru’. He was bestowed with most-prestigious Nandi Award in 1994 for the film ‘Aame’.
Legendary director E.V.V made 51 films in Telugu and Hindi languages successfully introducing many actors to Telugu film industry including his sons Aryan Rajesh and Allari Naresh.
Allari Naresh is considered at one of the best comic heroes in the present generation and continuing the legacy of Rajendra Prasad. Aryan Rajesh is continuing as a producer on EVV Cinema banner, founded by his father.
