Wonderful devotional film ‘Om Namo Venkatesaya’ which has hit screens on February 10, is running successfully in all areas. Union minister Vekaiah Naidu has watched the film at a special screening at Prasad Labs in Hyderabad on February 18. After watching the film, the minister hailed director K Raghavendra Rao garu for carving out such a wonderful devotional film and lauded Akkineni Nagarjuna for giving perfect justice to his role. He also showered praised on Anushka, Pragya Jaiswal and Vimala Raman.
Union minister Vekaiah Naidu shared his experience saying, “Watching such a wonderful devotional film ‘Om Namo Venkatesaya’ is a wonderful experience. K Raghavendra Rao garu has created wonder and passed on an amazing historical story to the present youth. I would like to appreciate producer Mahesh Reddy garu for producing such a great film. The film describing the story behind seven hills was made beautifully. The film goes on in a pleasant way starting till the end.”
He said, “Today’s generation is so busy. We overlook significant thing like worshiping god because of our busyness. Raghavendra Rao garu, Nagarjuna and Mahesh Reddy has given a wonderful devotional film for all of us. We have seen new Nagarjuna in the films like ‘Annamayya’, ‘Sri Ramadasu’ and ‘Shirdi Sai’. In the same way we see King Nagarjuna is a different look in ‘Om Namo Venkatesaya’. Nagarjuna get into the skin of the character and given perfect justice to his role. K Raghavendra Rao garu has created a new Vaikuntam in this Kaliyuga with his innovative skills and wonderful graphics. Our present generation directors must learn from him. It’s a must watch film for not just Telugu people, but also for the whole Indians.”
“The film reminds me of senior actor NTR garu’s ‘Lava Kusa’ film. The film discloses many things like why we should not do sin in Tirumala and why Lord Venkateswara Swamy got the name Balaji. Saurb Jain, who played Lord Venkateswara Swamy role, has given excellent performance,” he added.
Saying that ‘Om Namo Venkatesaya’ is a must watch film for the youth, Vekaiah Naidu said, “Devotion gives mental strength. Raghavendra Rao garu has once again proved through this film that devotion, tradition and culture are our Indian’s assets.”
