Gowtam Tinnanuri is an Indian film writer and director who is predominantly known for his work in Telugu film industry.Before joining the film business, the Jersey director worked for Deloitte, an IT based company, for eight years. He got into directing and screenplay writing when one of his friends advised him to create the narrative and lines for a film he was working on. When their picture was in post-production, he quit his job. During an interview, when asked about his prior life before entering the film industry, he said, Actually one of the reasons I quit IT was because a friend of mine wanted to direct. I wrote the story and dialogues for it. The post production of the film went for a year in Chennai but never released due to financial issues. I was in Chennai during that year and since I was looking after the post production I learnt about edit, mixing, DI etc..Malli Rava was his debut feature, which was released in 2017. Malli Rava is an Indian Telugu-language romantic drama film starring Sumanth and Aakanksha Singh. The film showcases a love story between Karthik and Anjali whose paths cross during three different stages of their lives. Gowtam Tinnanuri had no industry ties and had never worked or assisted a film director. He took his time writing Malli Raavas script before approaching the films producer Rahul through a friend. Gowtam Tinnanuri never looked back after the film was a moderate success. I was totally clueless about what was going to happen because I had no prior experience. I felt I had a good story, I narrated, the producer liked it and decided to make it. It all happened pretty quickly. Even days before the films release I was totally blank; I didnt know what to expect. If you say something in a gathering of 20 people maybe five wont like it. Imagine going to lakhs of people and expecting them to unanimously like something. It is an enormous task. And on the first day the market was slow so I thought I had to learn a lot more to reach a larger audience. But by the end of the first day it picked up. Then I felt confident that there is some section of audience that I can communicate to..
