Koratala Siva, a talented filmmaker, began his career as a director with the film ‘Mirchi (2013).’ He was a well-known writer in the Telugu film industry before becoming a director. He has written scripts for films such as ‘Bhadra,’ ‘Okkandunnadu,’ ‘Munna,’ ‘Brindavanam,’ ‘Simha,’ ‘Oosaravelli,’ and many others. Koratala Siva films are known for conveying social messages.
Prabhas brought back memories of his Chatrapati days with the Mirchi film. Koratala’s film provides an entirely new perspective on the factional clashes between the two villages, which can be resolved through peaceful discussions. The film was a box office success. With the overwhelming success of his debut film, he drew the attention of Tollywood’s biggest stars.
‘Srimanthudu,’ Siva’s second film, stars Mahesh Babu. In this film, he perfectly depicted the plight of backward villages and how corporate powers are destroying them. With this film, the trend of adopting villages began. Following the film’s huge success, Maheshbabu presented Koratala with a luxury car.
‘Janatha Garage’ is one of NTR’s best films. Koratla chose a different concept for this film than his previous two. NTR delivered an outstanding performance in the role of an activist turned gangster. With this film, Mohanlal captured the attention of the Telugu audience. The blockbuster was Janatha Garage. Koratala joined the ranks of top directors after scoring three hat-tricks in a row.
Bharat Ane Nenu
‘Bharat Ane Nenu’ is Koratala and Mahesh Babu’s second successful collaboration. This film is one of the most original in Tollywood. Mahesh Babu was portrayed by Koratala as a stylish CM who uses his power to clean up the corrupted society. The film became one of Mahesh’s biggest successes.
Koratala Siva veered off course with his film ‘Acharya.’ This film starred the biggest names in the Telugu film industry, Megastar Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan, but it was a box office flop. The critics and audience both panned Siva’s direction and writing.
Now he is working hard to get back into form with the NTR30 movie. There has been a good response to the glimpses that have already been released, introducing the NTR character.
