Telugu Musical Drama Sankarabharanam Completes 44 Years Of Release

Sankarabharanam bagged many awards.

Sankarabharanam, featuring JV Somayaju as the lead, was made under the direction of K Viswanath.

Sankarabharanam was released 44 years ago on February 2, 1980. The Telugu musical drama emerged as a feather to the Telugu entertainment industry’s cap and showcased its potential in the best way possible. Ever since the film was released for the audience to watch, it had everyone in awe. Such was the impact that people were compelled to change their narrative of Telugu cinema.

The musical drama, featuring JV Somayaju as the lead, was made under the direction of K Viswanath. Even after 44 years, the film is appreciated by many. It needs to be noted that the makers of the film had approached actors Krishna Raju and Sivaji Ganesan but things did not work out and Somayaju was roped in to play the lead character in the film.

Produced under the banner of Poornodaya Art Creations by Nageswara Rao and Akasham Sriram, Sankarabharanam beautifully depicted a love story between the characters. The on-point portrayal of characters and captivating depiction should be accredited to the director K Viswanath who did a brilliant job in the film. The soulful characters of Shankara Shastri and Tulsi in the film are still poured in with much love and respect.

Not only Telugu cinema lovers but people from all over the country showered the film with much-deserved praise for the commendable storyline and direction. The shooting of the film lasted 55 to 60 days.

Sankarabharanam was the first Telugu film to be honoured with the Swarna Kamalam Award. The film bagged many other awards as well. While SP Balasubramanian, for the first time, was given the National Award for Best Singer, KV Mahadevan also took home the National Award for Best Music Director. The music of the film became extremely popular and was a big hit. Vani Jayaram also bagged the National Award for Best Singer for the film.
