Can you imagine a climax with only comedians? - EVV can!

EVV Satyanarayana died early due to cancer and he kept working on his films until he couldn't anymore. He saw a dream of becoming an actor at his young age in his home at Dommeru, West Godavari. He decided to take his dream seriously at the young age itself and tried to approach people through his brothers who are working as photographers.

He did not get opportunities right away. He faced hardships to continue to live in Chennai with no work and only Intermediate qualification. But his passion did not go unnoticed as he kept trying hard and Navatha Krishnam Raju, famous producer and distributor, introduced him to Devadas Kanakala, who started directing his film, O Inti Bhagavatham. After working as assistant to him, he joined Jandhyala and worked for 8 years, 22 films.

This helped him understand that he doesn't have to be an actor to achieve his dreams and he has good penchant to tell stories in comic way. He debuted with Chevilo Puvvu film and that failed big time. D. Ramanaidu asked him to be a co-director for Indrudu - Chandrudu and after observing his talent, gave him Prema Khaidi film opportunity even though Chevilo Puvvu failed as even writers - Paruchuri Brothers supported him. He directed the movie like his life was depended on it and earned a name that he is too serious on sets. With Harish, Mala Shri, Sharada as leads movie became a sensational hit.

To prove his prowess in comedy, he immediately made Appula Apparao with Rajendra Prasad as hero and the movie became a blockbuster. Now, it is revered as comedy classic. He took on a remake and made Seetharathnam Gari Abbayi too. This movie also became a Superhit. He got an opportunity from AVM Studios and made another comedy classic, Aa Okkati Adakku. These continuos successes at box office, brought him to consideration of star heroes too. He got a chance to remake Phool Aur Kante as Varasudu with Nagarjuna and Krishna. Movie became another Super Hit for him.

He continued his great run at box office with Jamba Lakidi Pamba, Evandi Aavida Vacchindi, Hello Brother, Alibaba Aradajanu Dongalu, Abbaigaru, Aame, Aayanaki Iddaru. But then he failed with Magarayudu and Chiranjeevi's Alluda Mazaka became controversial for double meaning dialogues. Flops continued with Telugu Veera Levara - 300th film of Superstar Krishna, Chilakottudu. Mohan Babu's Veedevadandi Babu broke his string of flops but he couldn't repeat the same form he showed with the above mentioned films in his career next. He faced flops and successes in a very balanced way.

He wanted one of his sons to become an actor and another one a director. He thought Aryan Rajesh will be best bet for actor but Naresh became Allari Naresh and an star comic hero in TFI. He and his son, became a hit combination at box office as they stopped investing more money than the market for their films. He wanted to see Rajesh as a marketable actor till his breath but he couldn't complete that dream.

Anyways, if Jandhyala continued the trend of making family comedy films that went absent with Vijaya Productions stopping film production, then EVV continued Jandhyala's trend and took it to level that even mass heroes, stars followed it for years to come out of slumps. If you can imagine a climax with only comedians in the movie and make a box office hit that too when a comic hero is at the peak of his powers, then you can challenge EVV. But no one can as he is a trend all-by-himself in directors.
