with his family. He has two younger brothers, E V V Giri and E Srinivas, and a sister, M. Manga. His two brothers work in the film industry as still photographers. His passion for films did not let him concentrate on his studies. Deciding to test his luck in the Telugu film industry, E V V discontinued his studies after Intermediate and moved to Chennai. Film career[edit] E. V. V. faced many hardships during his early days in Chennai. His passion for films, relentless approach, persistence and determination to make it big in the industry attracted the attention of noted producer Navatha Krishnam Raju, with whose help he joined Devadas Kanakala as assistant director for the film O inti Bhagavatam. Later, he worked under director Jandhyala for about 8 years and made 22 films like Nalugu Stambhalata (1982), Rendu Jella Seetha (1983), Nelavanka (1983), Rendu Rella Aaru

(1985), Aha Naa Pellanta (1987) and Hai Hai Nayaka (1989). He also worked as co-director for the movie Indrudu Chandrudu. EVV Satyanarayana's directorial debut, Chevilo Puvvu, was a major flop. He was so depressed that he contemplated leaving the film industry. But his destiny changed when producer D. Ramanaidu gave him a chance to direct Prema Khaidi, which screened successfully in all centers. He followed in the path of his guru, Jandhyala, and made successful comedy movies. His first movie in the comedy genre was Appula Appa Rao, followed by Aa Okkati Adakku and Jamba Lakidi Pamba. He also directed family sentiment films, most prominent among them the 1994 super hit film Aame, starring Srikanth and Ooha. He also directed movies like Hello Brother, Alluda Majaka, Intlo Illalu Vantintlo Priyuralu, Goppinti Alludu, and Varasudu, and the Hindi movie Sooryavansham, which starred Amitabh Bachchan and Soundarya.[3] He also directed critically acclaimed movies like Thaali, Kanyadanam and Ammo! Okato Tareekhu. During the last stage of his life, he directed most of the movies with his sons in the lead roles. His younger son Allari Naresh

He was known to take special care in naming his movies. His elder son, Aryan Rajesh, was not successful and acted in only a handful of movies like Hai, Sontham, Leela Mahal Centre, Anumanaspadam, and Evadi Gola Vaadidhi. Awards[edit] E. V. V was presented the Nandi Award in 1994 for the film Aame.[4] Filmography[edit] Director:
