Nagarjuna's Career

Nagarjuna's first movie was Vikram . It was released on 24 May 1986. It was a remake of the Bollywood movie "Hero". At that time critics reviewed this movie as an average film, But the film was successful. Nagarjuna had to undergo a series of flops after that (about 4 movies). The turning point for his career is the hit film, Majnu . He acted as a tragic lover in that film; his father (Akkineni Nageswarrao) was known for such kind of movies in his career. Majnu, directd by director Dasari Narayana Rao, proved him as a talented actor. He also starred with his father in a film called "Collector gari Abbayi". He got another block buster that was the film Aakhari Poratam' with actress Sridevi which was directed by K. Raghavendra Rao. Movies that established him as a good actor were Agni Putrudu,Janaki Ramudu, Kiraidada, Murali Krishnudu, Vikkidada. His career took a great turn with the film Geethanjali . It was directed by famous South Indian director Maniratnam. Geetanjali became a great hit and was dubbed into other languages as well. In 1990, Nagarjuna got another block buster hit Shiva. It was an action-packed movide by Ram Gopal Verma(It was his first movie as a director). Even today This movie is said to be one of the greatest hits of the Tollywood. He entered into Bollywood with the remake of the same film Shiva. In hindi also It was a very big hit. After Shiva, the expectations on his subsequent films were too high. He did some different roles in the movies like Killer, Nirnayam. Nagarjuna had to endure a series of commercial setbacks before President Gari Pellam released in 1993. He was able to follow it up with the hit films,Varasudu, Gharana Bullodu, and Allari Alludu, Criminal and Sisindri to name a few. In 1994, he ventured into comedy for the first time with Hello Brother. Hello Brother was such a block buster hit that it was later remade into Judwaa, a Hindi film starring Salman Khan. In 1996, Nagarjuna starred as well as produced, Ninne Pelladutha, which was directed by Krishna Vamsi and co-starred the National Award winning Hindi actress, Tabu was highest crosser in Telugu industry. It is rumoured that Nagarjuna signed Krishna Vamsi upon seeing just ten minutes of the director's, then yet to be released debut film, Gulabi. It went on to become the biggest hit of that year, while also launching the career of music director Sandeep Chowta. Later, Nagarjuna took up the challenge of portraying Annamacharya, the 15th century Telugu singer and poet, in Annamayya. Like Shiva and Geethanjali, Annamayya. For his role in this film, Nagarjuna went on to receive the National Award from the President of India. He did 1999 Avida maa avide. Nagarjuna was commended by one and all for re introducing this long forgotten genre back into Telugu cinema. In 2000 Sitaramaraju hit movie, Nagarjuna starred in Nuvvu Vasthavani which went on to become a blockbuster. His subsequent films that year, Ninne Premistha and Aazaad too met with commercial success. Later, he starred in the romantic comedies, Santhosham and Manmadhudu, both of which were huge hits at the box office. Shivamani capped off a golden run of six continious hits for Nagarjuna, a record that has few equals in the business. During that time, he produced the blockbuster film, Sathyam, helping the acting career of his nephew, Sumanth.

In 2004, Nagarjuna had two releases, Nennunnanu and Mass. The former, despite being slammed by critics, went on become a box office winner. Mass, which was produced by Nagarjuna himself and directed by a debutant, the prominent dance choreographer Lawrence, too became one of the highest grossing films in his career[1]. Once again, Nagarjuna proved that he had a good eye in spotting new talent. In 2005, Nagarjuna acted and produced Super, which didn't exactly reach up to expectations it was an average hit. Then in 2006, Nagarjuna reunited with Annamayya director, K.Raghavendra Rao, and starred in the film Sri Ramadasu, his second period film that was based on the great 18th century Telugu saint-composer of the same name. Nagarjuna received the Nandi award for best actor that year. Sri Ramadasu, much like his earlier Annamayya, gave Nagarjuna critical as well as commercial success. His most recent films, "Don" was a box office flop in 2009 "King" was commercially success, even with less than the best reviews.A good actor
