Career:
Krishna Vamsi established his own production company Andhra Talkies in 1997.
Sindhooramis by far the best epic movie of his generation, a story attempted byfew before but never could portray in a way Vamsi could and definitelyon par with his mentor Ram Gopal Varma(who is again specialized in making gangster and underworld movies).Krishna vamsi's this attempt has definitely raised many eyebrows andhas given us many good talents like our very own Ravi Tejawho made his debut with this film. Sanghavi has definitely played herpart the best but on the glamour front, she was lagging behind. AndBrahmaji (Vamsi's muse) has taken this chance to be a perfect characterartist cum Hero but should work on his vocal vibrations beforeattempting to be a complete Hero. All-in-all Hats-Off to Vamsi who hasbought in the scope of learning with definite entertainment awaiting.This movie highlights all aspects of Naxalismand it is beautifully portrayed throughout the movie. This movie givesyou an understanding on how are young and old roped into the swell ofNaxalism and the efforts by each and every member of Naxalism andof-course the end of their lives.
He is well-known for bringing out new talents in artists. He made Jagapathi Babu, who is famous for playing typical family roles, play a tapori role in his award winning movie Anthapuram. However, his movie Samudram, in which Jagapathi Babu played the leading role, was a disaster.
He is a choreographer too. His songs have the typical Krishna Vamsiromantic touch. At least one song in each of his films has a melodiousduet.(Except "Rakhi") Examples are: "kannullo nee rupame" from Ninne Pelladutha, "ii velalo niivu em cestu untavu" from Gulabi, "nuvvu nuvvu" from Khadgam, "oke oka maata" from Chakram
His movies contain good social message too. Movies like Chakram, Khadgam, Sindhuram are good examples.
He shares a very good relation with Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry,the hat-trick Nandi best lyricist award winner. He gets the best out ofhim whether it be teen songs like "class room lo tapassu cheyyuta",duets like "nuvvu nuvvu", message-oriented songs like "jagamantakutumbam naadi" and "artha sathabdhapu agnyananne".
His movie, Chakram was inspired by an old song written by Sirivennela Seetharama Sastry "Jagamanta Kutumbam naadi". It is the biggest flop of his career.
His next movie was "Rakhi" with Jr. NTR.It has a lot of expectations as both the director and hero haven'ttasted good success in recent days. Both of them are hungry forsuccess. His film Rakhiis an above average movie. This movie is about the present position ofladies problems. He puts out the most difficult tasks performed byN.T.R. It has some good performances by Kota Srinivas Rao and ChandraMohan.
He also choreographed two songs from the film Okkadunnadu on director Chandra Sekhar Yeleti's request.He then directed the movie Chandamama,released September 2007 got some average reviews in the beginning butwas appreciated by all categories of the audiences later becoming oneof the best movies of that year.
His recent movie was Sasirekha Parinayam got released and has done good business in tollywood.His next project is named "Mahatma" which stars Srikanth and Bhavana as leading pair. This is Srikanth's 100th Movie.
