What? He is on 3rd rank. He deserves 1st rank. Not only in india in the whole world he is the best directer. His every movie is a masterpiece. His works like anand, aalap, anari,etc are heart touching. His comedy works like golmal, chupke chupke, etc are laughing cylinder.

4 Upendra Rao

Best and versatile director and has a good thoughts.

Best in India. But not popular as Hindi directors.. If u watch his film you says he is real director..

What ever upendra does is excellent he is an exceptional director

His movies need to be watched more than once to understand and every time u feel u r introspecting yourself with the characters.
