He is better known as Kalathapasvi Vishwanath garu, what a movies he took. He is a legend and rare piece where the Indian cinema ever saw. I never the seen his movies on 60s and 70s, I saw the movies of his own direction, story, screenplay from 80s movies. Shankarabaranam, Saagara Sangamam (Salangai oli in Tamil) Subalekha, Swathi muthyam, Sirivennala, Swarnakamalam, Swayam krushi, Swathi Kiranam these are the master pieces which made Indian cinema just turn around and saw what they really missed out.
