N. T. Rama Rao highlighted Andhra Pradesh's distinct cultural identity, distinguishing it from Madras State with which it was often associated. Madras State was the former name of the present day state of Tamil Nadu, India.
Rama Rao was referred to by fans as "Nata Ratna" and " Vishwa Vikhyatha Nata Sarvabhouma" (Emperor of Acting) in Telugu. 
Though widely recognized for playing mythological characters, NTR is considered as one of the greatest actors in Telugu film, and in general in South Indian films. His portrayal of Lord Krishna in Maya Bazaar by B. Nagi Reddy, a producer at Vijaya Productions, was the turning point in his life. Krishna (कृष्ण in Devanagari kṛṣṇa in IAST, ˈkr̩ʂɳə in classical Sanskrit is a deity worshiped across many traditions of Hinduism Mayabazar is a Telugu Film first released in the Andhra Pradesh, India on March 27, 1957, produced by BNagi Reddy (2 December 1912 - 25 February 2004 is a famous Telugu movie producer from the Kadapa District of Andhra Pradesh. His portrayal of Ravana and avatars of Vishnu, especially Rama and Krishna; mesmerized an entire generation who saw the face of Rao when these gods were mentioned.

Rama Rao had a major contribution to what can be considered the golden age of Telugu film making, between 1950 and 1965. Analysts believe that the Telugu film industry produced some of the best mythological movies from India, while the Tamil and Hindi movie industry produced better socially-oriented films. Tamil (ta தமிழ்; t̪əmɨɻ is a Dravidian language spoken predominantly by Tamil people of the Indian subcontinent. Hindi ( Devanāgarī: hi [[wiktहिन्दी हिन्दी]] or hi [[wiktहिंदी हिंदी]] IAST:, IPA:) is
NTR was naturally talented and extremely disciplined about various aspects of acting like preparation, punctuality, and dialogue delivery. An important factor that made him a great actor was his ability to deliver extremely lengthy dialogues that were original verses from the Ramayana and the Mahabharata with a fervour and command unmatched by most of his contemporaries. The Rāmāyaṇa ( Devanāgarī: sa रामायण is an ancient Sanskrit epic attributed to the Hindu sage ( Maharishi) Valmiki In addition, he generally played multiple roles in the same movie, which increased the number of dialogues and hence the preparation required.
Rama Rao was very versatile. In Tamil Nadu, Sivaji Ganesan was much better known for his acting skill and talent and M. G. Ramachandran for his commercial movies. Tamil Nadu ( Tamil:, Country of the Tamils, t̪ɐmɨɻ n̪aːɽɯ is one of the 28 states of India. Sivaji Ganesan (born Viluppuram Chinnaiahpillai Ganesan, October 1, 1927 - July 21, 2001) was a legendary Indian Maruthur Gopala Ramachandran Menon ( Tamil: மருதூர் கோபால இராமச்சந்திரன் Malayalam:മരുതൂര് NTR struck a balance between both kinds of cinema. He used to perform roles in mythological movies like those only Shivaji could perform and even do commercial Janapadham (where the adventurous prince saves the damsel in distress) films which were Ramachandran's forte.
Rama Rao, in fact, played the role of Lord Krishna not only in Telugu movies, but also in Tamil and Kannada movies. Krishna (कृष्ण in Devanagari kṛṣṇa in IAST, ˈkr̩ʂɳə in classical Sanskrit is a deity worshiped across many traditions of Hinduism Tamil cinema or Kollywood ( Tamil: கோலிவுட் kōlivūṭ) is the English name of the popular Tamil Film Industry based in the Kannada (kn [[wiktಕನ್ನಡ ಕನ್ನಡ]] Kannaḍa) is one of the major Dravidian languages of India, spoken predominantly in the state While the megastars—Ramachandran, Shivaji Ganesan and Rajkumar vied for the roles of other Mahabharata heroes like Karna, Arjuna and Bhima, there was no denying that NTR would be the only one to play Lord Krishna. Karna ( Sanskrit: कर्ण written Karṇa in IAST transliteration is one of the central characters of the Mahābhārata. Arjuna or Arjun ( Sanskrit: अर्जुन arjuna) is one of the heroes of the Hindu epic Mahābhārata, whose name In the Mahābhārata, Bhima ( Sanskrit: भीम IAST: Bhīma was the second of the Pandava brothers Krishna (कृष्ण in Devanagari kṛṣṇa in IAST, ˈkr̩ʂɳə in classical Sanskrit is a deity worshiped across many traditions of Hinduism This is probably the greatest tribute to NTR's charismatic cine-genius.
One of his greatest janapadams was "Jagadekaveeruni katha" (the story of the universal hero) where he plays the role of Pratap, the prince of Ujjain. WikipediaWikiProject Indian cities for details --> Ujjain ( Hindi:उज्जैन (also known as Ujain, Ujjayini, Avanti He dreams of celestial damsels as his wives, but on revealing the dream to his father, he is banished from the kingdom. The heroic prince then does the impossible — passing the various tests put to him, winning the celestial damsels and bringing them home to his kingdom. Another one of his janapadams was "Gulebakavali katha" (the story of Gulebakavali) where he plays the role of a prince who sets out to the heavens to bring the flower named "Gulebakavali" in order to cure his poisoned father, even winning Indra's daughter in the process. Indra ( Sanskrit: इन्द्र or इंद्र Indra, Malay: Indera, Thai: พระอินทร์ Phra-Intra
As time passed by, Rama Rao stopped playing the role of the prince in films. Instead, he played the role of a poor yet heroic young man against the system in his kingdom. To the lakhs of the denizens in Andhra Pradesh, he became 'one of us'—one who assures the poor that he is there to rescue them from the wicked traitors in the kingdom.
The most notable movies acted by Rama Rao in mythological characters are Maya Bazaar (Sri Krishna), Lava Kusa (Lord Rama), Sri Krishnaarjuna Yuddham (Sri Krishna), Bheeshma (Bheeshma), Bhookailasa(Raavana), Nartanasala (Arjuna also as Bruhannala), Panadava-vanavsam (Bheema), Sri Venkateswara Mahatyam (Lord Venkateswara), Maha Mantri Thimmarusu (Sri Krishna Devarayalu) and Dana Veera Sura Karna (Duryodhana, Sri Krishna, Karna)which created a record in telugu film industry, first film which has crossed one crore collection in Telugu film industry.

He also donned the roles of an elderly teacher (Badi Pantulu) becoming a model to his pupils, as a prince and pauper (Raju-Peda), a down-to-earth servant dedicated to his master (Aatma Bhanduvu).
In addition to his purely artistic contributions to the Telugu movies, he built the Rama Krishna Film studios, was very active in moving the Telugu film industry from Madras to Hyderabad. This created the first sophisticated service industry in the agrarian state. He actively campaigned for the construction of a large number of movie theaters in rural locations and was influential in designing and implementing a financial system that funded the production and distribution of movies
Rama Rao formed the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) on 29 March 1982. Telugu Desam Party ( Telugu: తెలుగు దేశం Party for Telugu Land and people or TDP is a regional Political party Events 1461 - Wars of the Roses: Battle of Towton - Edward of York defeats Queen Margaret to become King Year 1982 ( MCMLXXXII) was a Common year starting on Friday (link displays the 1982 Gregorian calendar) While promoting a new film, he was asked a question by a person in the audience 'అయ్యా, మేము మిమ్మల్ని దేవుడు లాగా ఆదరించాము, కానీ మీరు మాకు ఏమి చేసారు?' meaning Sir, we have treated you like a God but what have you done for us?.  He was so moved by this that he formed TDP, and with a victory in the immediate election, formed the government and ruled the state of Andhra Pradesh for a full term. He went into the elections with the slogan Atma Gauravam which meant "self-pride. "
Like his films, the formation of the party and storming into the assembly was very dramatic. TDP came into power within nine months of its formation. Initially ridiculed by the Congress that state politics is not like movie acting among others, TDP was considered a no match for the Indian National Congress, with the local representatives unheard of, the complete burden rested on the shoulders of NTR, and true to his charisma he won the elections with a landslide majority. Indian National Congress-I (also known as the Congress Party and abbreviated INC) is a major Political party in India. Among other reasons why he won the elections was no real alternative to the Congress, lack of development, unemployment etc. NTR himself contested elections from the constituency of Hindupur in Anantapur District and Gudivada in Krishna district.

He returned to power, among the most significant changes he made was to abolish the Legislative Council of the Andhra Pradesh citing the reason that it was a non-performing body which was just a burden on the state exchequer. A Legislative Council is the name given to the legislatures or one of the chambers of the legislature of many nations and colonies NTR introduced administrative reforms that strengthened local governance and strengthened the Jilla parishad system. He introduced management reforms that held corrupt government offices accountable to elected representatives. The death of his wife, marathon of activities that started with chaitanya ratham, culminated in large scale administrative reforms left his health in poor shape with a mild stroke and unable to campaign in the next election. NTR lost the subsequent elections held in 1989, but during the same period he gained valuable experience and had people like N. Chandrababu Naidu and Daggubati Venkateswara Rao (both sons-in-law) in his party. Nara Chandrababu Naidu ( Telugu:నారా చంద్రబాబు నాయుడు (born April 20 1950) was the Chief minister
Other contributions of NTR included the educational reforms he brought about in the state, where he overhauled the entire state's education syllabus for schools. He instituted statewide entrance examinations for all disciplines of higher education vis-à-vis Engineering, Medicine, Pharmacy, Law, and MBA to name a few. Students, based on the merit of their ranks obtained in these tests, could join any state college of their choice. These education reforms laid the foundation for the coming high-tech era for Andhra. NTR created a new commando force for the state and was very successful in combating naxalism both ideologically and militarily. Communal rioting in Hyderabad had been put rest for good during his term. Vizag steel plant which had been struggling since its foundation went online during his tern in no small part due to his active lobbying with the central government. He recruited worldwide medical talent and improved higher end medical capabilities of the capital city and founded a medical university in Vijayawada. He reformed the administration of Tirupathi and converted it into a modern tourist attraction. He did away with the feudal munusobu and karanam system to empower elected leaders of the local government. The state government introduced entrance exams for vedic subjects and opened up priest positions in temple to non-inherited candidates. He built the largest bus station in Asia, commissioned the largest Budha statue in the world at the time to high light the Budhist heritage and history of Andhra. He adorned TankBund with the statues of great Telugus of the past creating a sense of heritage. He guaranteed one light bulb per house hold to give educational opportunities to the lowest economic class of rural Andhra. This led to a rise in electric consumption that resulted in Andhra going from a net electricity exporter to an importer despite production gains. He reformed water distribution system from the major water reservoirs in the state by giving farmer organizations (raitu sangam) a say in planning. The telugu desam party operations were significantly computerized and a systematic local party structure was built and this resulted in the establishment of a stable second political party that survived his death. NTR introduced the concept of strong states with strong centre in his discussions about state power with Mrs. Gandhi and ushered in a new era of empowered local governments, within the framework of India. The long held belief that strong states imply a weak and collapsing country is no more a political dogma that governs center state relations in India. He also lobbied and won the amendment of Hindu inheritance laws to give women equal inheritance rights. He introduced the first social net program in India with Rs2/kg rice scheme. While Andhra Pradesh was one of the largest producers of rice in the world, its rural agricultural labor often went to bed hungry due to a food disribution system that was centrally controlled and often corrupt and in-efficient. This program was narrowly targeted at families with monthly income of Rs500 ($12 per month or 40 cents a day) or less and played a key role in reducing government induced hunger in the rice bowl of the world. This social net program was later extended to include free food for primary school children in government schools for the same income group and that scheme encouraged the single biggest drop in child labor and increase in primary school enrollment. The despicable scourge of pre-teen children working for their daily food next to cattle and machinery started receding thanks to this program. All the major state subsidies like free bachelors degree education, free rail tickets for railway employees, free telephones for telecom employees, free electricity for electricity employees, free medical care for medical employees, free loans for bank employees, free housing for govt employees were till that date targeted at the rich and the new social net programs aimed at the poorest and the most hard working of the poor were a big political success.
It is noteworthy that though he didn't know Hindi, yet gave a speech for forty-five minutes in a packed stadium in Haryana. Hindi ( Devanāgarī: hi [[wiktहिन्दी हिन्दी]] or hi [[wiktहिंदी हिंदी]] IAST:, IPA:) is Haryana (हरियाणा Punjabi: ਹਰਿਆਣਾ hərɪjaːɳaː is a state in northern India. He later revealed that he had memorized the speech phonetically. Devi Lal, a Deputy Prime Minister of India was shocked to learn this.

Even though he lost the 1989 elections, he shot to fame at the national level and was capable of uniting many regional parties. He formed the National Front with parties like Janata Dal , Bharateeya Janata Party, CPI and CPM as an alternative to the Congress. The National Front was a coalition of political parties led by the Janata Dal, which formed India 's government between 1989 and 1991 under the leadership of Janata Dal is an Indian political party which was formed through the merger of one of the major Janata Party factions the Lok Dal and a group of Congressmen

Rice is a Cereal foodstuff which forms an important part of the diet of many people worldwide and as such it is a staple food for many 2/kg and to make Andhra Pradesh an "Alcohol-Free" state. True to his word he kept his promises only to burden the state exchequer.
The loss of power and the subsequent events can be summed up as the start of anti-climax in NTR's life. NTR died on 18 January 1996.
