Film Career

Nagi Reddy along with his friend and partner Alur Chakrapani produced over fifty films in four decades in the four South Indian languages and Hindi. He made mythological, devotional, and historical Telugu movies. Some of his more notable films include Pathala Bhairavi, Maya Bazaar, and Missamma. He made most of his films in association with screen writer Chakrapani. Nagi Reddy closed down Vijaya-Vahini after the Tamil film industry moved out of studios in the 1970s, and started the Vijaya Hospital and Vijaya Health Centre.

He stopped producing movies after the death of his friend and partner Chakrapani.

A new award was incorporated, commemorating his 100th birth year, the Nagi Reddy, memorial Award for the best Telugu and Tamil family entertainers.

Famous quotes containing the words career and/or film:

    A black boxer’s career is the perfect metaphor for the career of a black male. Every day is like being in the gym, sparring with impersonal opponents as one faces the rudeness and hostility that a black male must confront in the United States, where he is the object of both fear and fascination.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)

    You should look straight at a film; that’s the only way to see one. Film is not the art of scholars but of illiterates.
    Werner Herzog (b. 1942)
