Successful director Koratala Siva is celebrating his 46th birthday today. Wishes are pouring in from all over the industry for Koratala who has given Tollywood some memorable films in the last 8 years. The ‘Acharya’ director started his career as a story and dialogue writer. He has worked on some memorable films like Bhadra, Munna, Okkadunnadu, Brindavanam, Simha, and Oosaravelli as a writer. On the occasion of Koratala Siva’s birthday, here’s a look at the movies directed by him.


The film that made the industry look up and notice the craftsmanship of Koratala Siva, Mirchi proved to be the perfect launchpad for him. Siva presented Prabhas in a never seen before avatar and explored both the class and mass angles of the actor. A gripping screenplay and chartbuster music coupled with Prabhas’ screen presence made Mirchi Prabhas’ most successful box-office outing back then. The film had a worldwide closing share of Rs 47.5 crores and turned out to be a landmark film for both Koratala Siva as well as Prabhas.

Achieving success with the first film itself is a tough act, but what’s even tougher is continuing the success streak. Post the landmark hit Mirchi, Koratala Siva teamed up with Super Star Mahesh Babu for Srimanthudu. The movie released in 2015 achieved stupendous success and ended up as a non-Baahubali industry hit. This was a massive achievement for a director handling just his second film. The action drama crossed the Rs 75 crore share mark in just its 16th day and established multiple domestic and overseas records. Srimanthudu established Koratala as a name to reckon with. Koratala became known for his content plus box office formula.
