Late Sri Katta Subba Rao is a film director known for directing family-oriented and social movies in the Telugu film industry. Almost all the movies which he directed during his career depict the Indian family relationships with respect to issues and romance between naughty husbands and wives, Indian marriages, sons-in-law, mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law, etc.

In his short, yet inspiring stint of life which lasted for a mere 47 years, he banked the most of it by directing 27 movies which starred all the yesteryear Telugu cinema torchbearers like Chiranjeevi, NTR (Senior), Krishna, Sobhan Babu, Chandra Mohan, Murali Mohan etc.

All those stars were commercially established when they were convinced by Subba Rao to work for him on his familial scripts and he promisingly delivered them memorable hits by directing remembered movies, many of them.

Especially Vayyari Bhaaryalu Vagalamari Bhartalu scored a massive hit for two superstars back then – Krishna & NTR. They owed it big time to Katta Subba Rao from bringing them together for such a prestigious project and being persistent all through the making so that the movie went ahead onto become Silver Jubilee Hit of Telugu Cinema for the year 1982.

His movies are famous for their light hearted comedy tracks that mostly involved sweet romance between husbands and wives and also he bestowed a lot of importance on family relationships while dealing with such subjects with an impeccable prowess in its own right. He beleaguered himself with heroes of 70s & 80s and gifted them with roaring business at box office.

While anybody talks about Telugu cinema, Mr. Katta Subba Rao is the one who must be remembered for his priceless contribution to the Telugu cinema, in his own way!

Many of the films directed by Katta Subbarao are hit movies, namely Srirasthu Subhamasthu, Mogudu Kavali 175 Days Starring Megastar Chirenjeevi, Gadasari Atha-Sogasari Kodalu, Kontemogudu - Penki Pellam and others. He directed the movies with popular heroes of today including N.T.R, Chiranjeevi, Krishna (actor), Shoban Babu, Chandra Mohan, Murali Mohan.
