was like a family reunion. Three brothers (Bala Krishna, Hari
Krishna and Rama Krishna) met their brother-in-law Chandra Babu
Naidu who came to bless his son-in-law Taraka Rathna (son of Mohana
Krishna). In addition to these men, there was a row full of ladies
from Nandamuri family sitting in the audiences. Now, isn't that,
what a family is for - to bless a budding heir and encourage him?
extravagant event was organized on the 20th of October in Shalimar
theater, Narayanaguda to mark the release of audio of NT Rathna's
second venture 'Yuva Rathna'. This date marked another joyous
celebration for the Nandamuri family. Nandi awards were announced
this day and Bala Krishna won the best actor Nandi award for the
first time after 25 years in the field. Such a joyous event and

and fans? Unthinkable, Improbable and Impossible.
security cordon beefed up as CM of AP graced the event by letting
only the people who mattered for the presence. The podium was
dazzling with the lively presence of Sripati Rajeswar (All India
President of NTR Fans Association and the MLA), Uppalapati Narayana
Rao (director of Yuvarathna), Keeravani (music director of Yuvarathna),
Bala Krishna, Chandra Babu Naidu, Hari Krishna, Rama Krishna,
NT Rathnaa, Murali Mohan (MAA President) and Paruchuri Gopala
entire function was like a tribute to NT Rama Rao and eulogizing
the greatness of Nandamuri Vamsam. All the people who spoke during
the occasion narrated their experiences with the great NT Rama
Rao and how NT Rama Rao influenced the course of Telugu films
and Indian politics.
Gopala Krishna enthralled the crowds by telling his association
with the Nandamuri family. Paruchuri brother spoke about the importance
Bala Krishna gives to technicians by saying that Balayya called
him up to inform him that the character Narasimha Naidu [etched
by Paruchuri brothers] got Nandi award. Sripati Rajeswar thanked
the fellow Nandamuri fans and said that NT Rathnaa has a great
future ahead of him.
Krishna explained various important occasions and events that
resulted in the formation of Rama Krishna Horticulture Studios.
Punching authority and convincing logic were the life of Hari
Rathna thanked his mamayya Chandra Babu Naidu, babai
Bala Krishna and peddananna Hari Krishna for taking their
time out and coming forward to bless him.
Krishna started his speech on a lighter vein by saying that NT
Rathnaa has to compete with him on youth aspect. Bala Krishna
said that he reached 25 years of his career, climbed many steps
and attained many records before winning the first Nandi award.
He indirectly opined that he should have got it in initial stages.
He also reminded that his action in Chenna Kesava Reddy is far
ahead of what people expect from their heroes in the recent times.
He said that Nandamuri Vamsam has got a special place in the hearts
of Telugu film lovers. He also reiterated the fact that only Nandamuri
Vamsam is capable of performing each of nava rasas to the fullest
satisfaction on the screen.
stated NT Rathnaa as the first guy from the 3rd generation of
Nandamuri clan for having entered the film industry (conveniently
ignoring Jr. NTR). He suggested NT Rathnaa to not get bogged down
by failures and over joyous with the successes. His advice to
Rathnaa was to maintain balanced mind. He also requested the chief
minister to give enough encouragement to the cinema halls, which
are now days turning into function halls due to the lack of encouragement
from the government. He illustrated his point by showing Shalimar
theater [where this function was held] as an example.. He earnestly
asked CM to consider reducing entertainment tax of movies so that
exhibitors can survive.
Chandra Babu Naidu sang praises about Nandamuri vamsam and wished
NT Rathna all the best. He also asked the producers to make films
with social messages in it.
audio release function was followed by Sangeeta Vibhavari by MM
Keeravani. The other guests who graced the occasion include G
Adi seshagiri Rao (Producer's counsel president), B Gopal, A Kodandarami
Reddy, Siva Nageswara Rao, Prasad (producer of Nippuravva).
