Guruvaram is a flick based on the legend of the Sai of Shirdi. To those who have not heard about the film, Ramireddy (late) plays the role of the Baba in the film. The film is definitely an experiment. It sees Suman in the other most important character.
Babu Mohan, Annapurna, Telangana Shakuntala, Uttej and others are also playing other key roles. The film is so titled because Thursday is considered to be Sai's favourite day in the week. After the saint, who attained Mahasamadhi on a Thursday, it has been seen as very auspicious by millions of his devotees across the globe.
The film is full of devotional flavour, according to the makers. To be released in the first week of January, the film has music by Sai Sri Harsha, Jaya Surya, Sashibala, Anuradha and Ravi Shankar.
It is to be seen if Guruvaram manages to make a mark in a season crammed with almost half-a-dozen big films.
