Manchu Vishnu faced camera for the first time in his life as a child artist at the age of four when he appeared in “Ragile Gundelu” in 1985. He turned in to a full-fledged hero in 2003 with the film Vishnu directed by Shaji Kailas but the movie failed miserably at the box office. Unfazed by the failure, Vishnu continued to do one movie per year. After a string of flops (Vishnu, Suryam, Political Rowdy, Asthram, Game), Vishnu first tasted success with Srinu Vaitla’s Dhee in 2007.
In the next year, his first multistarer movie, Krishna Arjuna alongside Nagarjuna released but went to become one more failure. His next movies, Saleem and Vasthadu Naa Raju even have bitter experiences in store from him. He acted and produced both the movies with big budgets but both of them went on to register as big disasters.
Finally, the success drought ended with Denikaina Ready in 2012. The movie went on to become the biggest hit in the actor’s career.
The actor’s most recent movie, Doosukeltha got good reviews and talk. The actor once again banked on the ‘comedy’ mantra for success. The movie will end up as decent hit for Vishnu. The actor's inconsistency is back again immediately. His next two films - Pandavulu Pandavulu Thummeda and Rowdy directed by Ram Gopal Varma both failed at the box office.
However the bigger shock is yet to come. His most recent film, Erra Bus directed by Dasari Narayana Rao failed to draw crowds even for the morning shows of the release day and ended up as the biggest failure in Vishnu's career so far.
