Before commercial films invaded the Telugu cinema during the late 1970s, family dramas were the majority of films that used to get made in the industry. One such family drama is Amayakuraalu. Starring Akkineni Nageshwara Rao in the lead role, it was a massive blockbuster at the box office. This film celebrates 49 years of its release today. On this occasion, let us revisit this classic.
Directed by V. Madhusudhana Rao, this film featured Kanchana and Sharada as the female leads. Gummadi, Nagabhushanam and Allu Ramalingiah have played the other main roles in it. The story of the film revolves around the couple Shekhar (ANR) and Shobana (Kanchana), and their family. Upon its release, Amayakuraalu received highly positive reviews from the audiences. Eventually, it went on to become one of the biggest hits of that year. It got produced by D. Madhusudhana Rao under the banner Annapurna Pictures.
Saluri Rajeshwara Rao has composed the music for this film. P. S. Selvaraj has handled the cinematography and M. S. Mani worked as an editor for it. The film's music was also a big hit. There were nine songs in total and all of them have become chartbusters during those times. Tracks like Paadeda Nee Namame, Hello Saaru Bhale Vaaru, Chinnari Paidi Bomma and Sannajaji Puvvulu still considered classics composed by Rajeshwara Rao. The film is still relevant to current society. The younger generation, who have missed watching it, can catch it on Youtube.
