All - 37 films







Producer - 28 films



Director - 20 films



Story Writer - 5 films



Presenter - 3 films



Screenplay Writer - 2 films



Editor - 1 film




Watching films endlessly is the only training he has had in his
life. Ram Gopal Varma has a vision and belief about film making which
he diligently puts into practice. He has been in the film industry for
over a decade, and is known more for his idiosyncrasies and less for
the large range of varied films he has made. He has never undergone any
apprenticeship with a filmmaker; he has neither assisted any director
nor done a course in filmmaking. He was an avid movie buff who
graduated into movies by chance. His maiden venture was
'Shiva', starring Nagarjuna in '89, a movie based on the frustrations
and aspirations of a student leader. He immediately won national
acclaim for this hard-hitting film. Next came a horror flick Raat, a
chilling suspense drama, with Revathi and after that the prelude to
Satya i.e. Drohi which didn't fare too well at the box office. A couple
of Telugu films later came the biggest blockbuster of his career,
Rangeela. It catapulted him to instant acclaim with the street smart
Munna (Aamir Khan), and the starlet Urmila with whom he appears to
share a special rapport. The success created history for A. R. Rahman
the music director, Manish Malhotra the dress designer and Urmila, the
sultry siren. The success seemed to go to his head and he made a racy
thriller called Daud with hunk Sanjay Dutt and Urmila wearing the
briefest mini skirt in Bollywood. The film sank like a stone. It was a
jolt for Ramu and he realised that he wasn't above the film and its
script. And then came the movie on Mumbai's underworld named Satya with
a nondescript cast. The movie created ripples and set a new trend in
cinema. Experimentation is a regular feature of Ram Gopal's movies.
Next came a snappy chiller, Kaun, starring Urmila (again!), Manoj
Bajpai and Sushant. A film devoid of songs, with only three characters
and shot entirely indoors. In between, he co-produced Dil Se and burnt
his fingers. Then came the autobiographical Mast, based on his crush on
Sridevi and no marks for guessing who the leading lady with Aftab
Shivdasani was! The film didn't do well and Ramu was back again with
his production of Shool directed by his assistant E.Niwas. Now the
prolific director has hit the marquees with Jungle, loosely based on
the brigand Veerappan starring Fardeen Khan, Sunil Shetty and Urmila. His
greatest strength lies in his willingness to experiment, his taut
narrative and slick direction. He is a man of few words and seldom does
one find him entangled in controversies.

One more great news about RGV is....he is one of the "Leaders as Faculty" in the MIT School of Government, Pune.
MIT School of Government, Pune has been established with the clear
objective of imparting leadership training to educated youth of India
desirous of making a career in politics and government and providing
selfless service to the nation. MIT-SOG is the first institute in India
and Asia to have started such a program of this kind.

In this Institute RGV gives guest lectures to the students. The majority in this faculty are top political leaders in India. You can find more about this this institution on its home page. Just click on 'faculty' on the home page. But, his profession has been written as producer..!! instead of Film Director and Producer.


THATS THE CALIBRE OF Mr. RAMGOPAL VARMA.

*** ~~ RAM GOPAL VARMA on the point of MONEY ~~ ***

Money for me has always been a means and never an end. The important point of money is to identify what you want to do with it. Do you want to make money to secure it, buy properties and leave it for your off-spring or do you want to use it for what you wanted it for?

My grandfather was obsessed with saving money. For hours he used to explain about some recurring deposit scheme or some such thing where if you put Rs.1 Lakh how it will become Rs.5 Lakhs in 7 years and this he used to tell to a person who does not think beyond that day, namely me.

There, also, was a cousin of mine Raja whose father was very rich but used to lead a life style of not even taking his car out, always used to keep it under a tarpaulin cloth and travel in a bus.

One day I asked him what is the point of having money if you donít use it for having a better quality of life. He answered saying that if his grandfather and father thought the same then he probably would not have had any money. I answered Ďfine if you grandfather works hard saves and saves and gives it to your father and then he saves and saves and gives it to you and then you save and save give it to Raja and then he saves and saves and gives it to his son and what if Raja gives birth to a son like me. All the earlier four generations will become super big fools, Ha Ha!í

Money for me is potential energy and has no meaning unless it is made kinetic.

I would think in a very simplistic way on a philosophical level the origin of money could be explained in this way. When men in the primitive times used to hunt they were like all other animals. Hunt, eat, sleep, hunt again would have been the cycle.

And some time one among them has an idea of agriculture as in wanting to grow a crop. Now others might not understand or share his vision but he will need them to work for him on the crop. So to compensate them for working for his vision which could go wrong or right was where money has been invented and he pays them with that.

So with the money they got, it becomes their energy which they could choose to make it kinetic in whichever way they individually choose to. But again to enjoy money you first need to enjoy the experience of living a life and also to be able to identify what all lifeís shop can offer you. For instance you can buy the greatest music system that a shop can offer but you canít buy from lifeís shop a mind which can actually relish the music which plays from it. That mind, you have to have yourself. If not, having money will just amount to securing yourself fearing poverty or to feel a sense of elation in comparison to others who have lesser money than you. Thus it becomes nothing but a measurement for your own self esteem.

If you have a beautiful rich house others will admire especially those who live in the same street, but you yourself will take it for granted in not more than one day after the interior dťcor is done and from then on you will be only looking at its faults. Also if you have issues with your wife, the same house will look like a horror house from your point of view as you are approaching it after your days work.

Any way before you guys take off on me on this, the point I am trying to make is that no materialistic things like a music system, a car, a house etc can really give you pleasure unless it enhances the pleasure of your own personal feelings with regard to them in one way or the other.


If you are with a person who bores you it wonít make a difference if you are sitting in the JW Marriott Coffee Shop and if you are interested in the person a roadside tea shop also will do wonders.

The point of life is to relish your feelings and money can make a point if and only it helps you achieve that.

I donít care for people who want to make money just to save it as I donít understand the point of trying to prepare for losses and death right from the time of being born. Then whatís the point of being born?


In terms of my movie making money yes it is important for me that it should and I will try to the limits of my capability to see that it does. But I donít want to make that money to add to my bank balance. I want it for making my next movie.

I want money so that I can make movies but I donít make movies so that I can make money. I have never made money and I think I never will. The reason for that being my mindset of constantly putting to use whatever money I have going by my theory of making it kinetic. So even if I make a film which does not work, which obviously can not be my intention, the least it is doing is give that many people work thereby making them kinetic, and yes at least it is making them earn their livelihood and I irrespective of losing money will still generate more money because of my ideas.

Ideas and feelings are the only true wealth anyone can really possess and on that account I have always been rich and I will always be, that is at least for myself. Whether that achieves anything in others perception or not, itís not my concern as like I said a million times before ď I live for myself Ē.
