Chakravarthi (a.k.a Appa Rao Kommineni) hails from Tadikonda, Guntur Dt and he debuted with Sobhan Babu's "mUgaprEma" movie in 1970. He is the only Telugu music director who worked for a maximum number of movies (up to 960+) within a short span of two decades. As he overworked most of the time during his career, a lot of his melodies got eclipsed behind his popular mass songs and I would like to bring forth such melodies on this page. His name is a synonym for "Mass Song" during the late 70's and the 80's and he gave it a new definition with "yama gOla". His music played a significant role in the careers of Sobhan Babu, NTR and Chiranjeevi. His last memorable movie is the Chiru's "attaku yamuDu-ammAyiki mogudu" in 1989. He later passed on his legacy to his disciples like Raj-Koti, Keeravani, Vamdematham Srinivas etc. During the fag end of his career, he acted in TV serials and a few movies. There is no other Telugu music director, who is as versatile as he is (assistant director, dubbing artist, music director and an actor). He passed away in 2003.
