Here is a master stroke of director Sekhar Kammula to use a Vedic Stotram (of Rig Veda?) ascribed to Agastya Muni.

Only the first four lines are used here which mean Oh Goddess Sarasvathi, who is fair as a jasmine flower, the moon or a snow flake, who is dressed in white and whose hands are adorned by veena, who is seated in a white lotus, to whom Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara pray, please protect us.

Singer is Pranavi & the music arranger is Mickey J Meyer. This is Tamanna Bhatia’s 2nd Telugu film.

This is Sekhar’s fourth film after Dollar Dreams, Anand & Godavari.

Full Stotram is :
