On the auspicious day of Guru Pournima on the 10th of November, Sri Rama Rajyam will hit the marquee. The much-awaited film, starring Nandamuri Balakrishna in Lord Rama's role, is currently in its post-production stage. The mythological film has been made in a distinct format, and Bapu, it appears considering the audio of the film, has given it a new-age touch.
This goes to show how much inspiration that one of the greatest film music directors of all time has derived from Bapu's creative interpretation of some portions of the Ramayana.
The same can be gauged by the fact that, Maestro Illayaraja, who watched the movie, felt that it needs a different kind of music to elevate the unorthodox feel of the movie. Bapu's style has never conformed to routine format, even if it is a story of mythological greats.
Produced by Yelamanchi Sai Babu, it sees Nayanatara playing Goddess Sita.
Though it has been in the making for a longer time than usual, the audience excitement around it has not diminished, so to speak.
