Annamayya again

Annamayya on a Saturday – what more can I ask for. Enduko ee cinema chusinappudalla chala bhavodvaegam kaluguthundi.

The scenes I liked the most and touched me the most are

1. The first time Venkateswara Swamy came to Annamayya to divert his life’s direction, to make him know the purpose for which he was born

I like the complete conversation between Annamayya and God – intha kanna soundarayam chupisthae – aa soundaryaniki dasoham antanu – and the Venkateswara Swamy vigraham chala chala andam ga untadi, kallu tippukolenanthaga, kanu reppalu muyalenanthaga, mugdha mohanam antae adenemo anipinchae tantha ga

2. Annamayya’s conversation with Narada

aa harivasam chaerae varaku upavasam chaeddamani thatha,  aa prayatnmulo asalae pothae ? aa swami seva kosam chesae ee yatralo alisipoyina asalupoina poyaedi emundi thatha appudu Naradudu cheppae dialogue – this one quoted by God,  “nenu vaikuntam lonu undanu, yogula hrudayallonu undanu, ekkada naa bhaktulu paduthuntaro akkada thista vesukuni koorchuntanu ani”

3. Ammavaru came to Annamayya with the laddu

Annamayya’s expressions when he tasted the laddu and also his expressions when he realized that ammavaru came in that form

4. The whole climax episode

Emi cheppina, entha cheppina adi underexpression avuthadi.

naa pata mee nota, natana Sutradhari,

Swami ee sakshakatharam kala kadhu kadha kalpana kadhu kadha apadha mokkulavada anni bayalanu pogottae abhaya hasthamtho karunamrutha dharalu kuripinchae kati hasthamtho nannu kowgilinchukunnava, aa thalluliddariki nilayamaina nee gundaelapaiki nannu cherchukunnava, natho palikinchukunna ee keethanalaku pratiphalamga intha pedda kooli mutta cheppava naa janma tharinchindi charitharthamaindi

స్వామి ఈ సాక్షాత్కారం  కల  కాదు  కదా !  కల్పన కాదు కదా !  ఆపద  మొక్కులవాడ,  అన్ని  భాయాలును పోగొట్టే  అభయ  హస్తంతో,  కరుణామృత ధారలు కురిపించే  కటి  హస్తంతో  నన్ను  కౌగిలించుకున్నావా, ఆ  తల్లులిద్దరికి  నిలయమైన  నీ  గుండెలపైకి నన్ను  చేర్చుకున్నావా ! నాతో  పలికించుకున్న ఈ  కీర్తనలకు  ప్రతిఫలంగా  ఇంత  పెద్ద  కూలి  ముట్ట  చెప్పవా  ! నా  జన్మ  తరించింది,  చరితార్తమైంది !

Anamayya expressions when he came to know Venkateswara Swamy’s physical presence at different stages of his life, the feeling that God has been physically with him – naa patalu lokalanu adinchae mimmalani adinchaeya? avi meeru gurthu unchukuni malli padaentha ga mimmalani alarincheya? Chalu Swamy chalu naaku pattaleni alasipoyantha anandam kaluguthundi

Antharyami alasithi solasithi …..

Content wise, action wise, from any aspect this climax is naa bhutho naa bhavishyathi …. I get very emotional at this climax whenever I see this movie, today is no exception, I cried even more than the first time I saw this movie. very sad and emotional. I do not know how Raghavendra garu had conceived this climax, but hats off to him. And the whole cast and crew had given life to his vision – especially Nagarjuna, Keeravani garu.

  1. Thanks for reading my ramblings Murthy garu. You are absolutely right. I am really sorry for overlooking or taking it for granted SPB garu. I felt SPB gari presence all the more in Shirdi Sai.
