The greatest Telugu director to ever have existed. An inspiration to the culture. Movies that show philosphy, tradition, culture and values in life and among people. I came to find out about his movies because my Hiranya Uncle, as going away gift to my mom to America, complied 60 some tapes of music of the classic Telugu culture/movies. Most of what I know of Indian culture is this, my parents generation and 80’s culture of India so to speak.
