The trailer begins with Nagarjuna’s voice over narrating the premise of ‘Om Namo Venkatesaya’. Nag describes the story between Lord Venkatesa and his ardent devotee Hathi Ram Baba as ‘Nava Rasa Bharitha Leela Drushya Kavyam’. Set in the 18th Century, the film is an attempt to chronicle the life and times of Hathi Ram who is also known as Bhavaji.
Nag, who is best in doing roles of devotees like Annamayya, Sri Rama Dasu, is back to his forte. As usual, he breathed life into the role of Hathi Ram whose history isn’t much available to present age. Director K Raghavendra Rao stuck to his trademark style in directing this historic biopic. Anushka is seen as Krishnamma, another devotee of Lord Balaji. She is seen grooving to a devotional song ‘Koneti Rayuda’ and her presence does the magic.
Sourabh is playing Lord Venkateswara and he really fit the role aptly. The other supporting cast has Jagapathi Babu, Rao Ramesh, Prudhvi, Vimala Raman, Pragya Jaiswal and many others. On the whole, the trailer seems to be offering a devotional experience. It doesn’t help but reminds us the phrase ‘Govinda…Govinda’ that is often chanted in Tirumala.
