Om Namo Venkatesaya Movie Review, Rating: Om Namo Venkatesaya (2017) is a Telugu devotional movie, based on the life of Hathiram Bhavaji, Starring Akkineni Nagarjuna and Anushka in lead roles. produced by A. Mahesh Reddy on the AMR Sai Krupa Entertainments banner and directed by K. Raghavendra Rao. If not for K Raghavendra Rao and Akkineni Nagarjuna, we wouldn’t have had an Annamayya, a Sri Ramadasu, a Shirdi Sai, and now Om Namo Venkatesaya. The very combination raises expectations.
Movie is based on the life and legend of Haathi Ram Baba, Nag plays the legendary saint, while Hindi actor Saurabh plays the Lord Balaji. K Raghavendra Rao has this time gone for a young-looking actor, perhaps believing that the Lord’s image among devotees is that way. While Nag’s first look is awaited, Saurabh, the tall and well-built actor is looking serene enough to reflect the right ‘rasa’. Flanked by his consorts (played by two less-known actresses), the Lord is full of grace.
Film was Written by JK Bharavi and music-directed by MM Keeravani, it has Anushka, Pragya Jaiswal and others among its cast. This devotional has Nagarjuna essaying the popular saint’s role. If Pragya Jaiswal of Kanche fame and Vimala Raman are playing important roles, it has been rumoured that Anushka is playing the role of a ‘sadhvi’ here.

Om Namo Venkatesaya is an movie which had the importance of Swami Vari Sesha Vasthram. Movie is about one of the greatest Lord venkateswara devotees Hathiram Bhavaji.
