That was a 'seesa padyam' by Sree samudrAla  rAmAnujAcArya , well known as
samudrAla jUnior.

I don't think it was adopted from 'tenAli rAmakRshNa's  pAnDu ranga
mahAtmyamu'.  The 'danDakam' in the same movie sung by 'G' starting 'Sree
kAminee  kAmitAkAra  sAkAra...'  was a partly adoption from ' pingaLi
sUrana's kaLApUrNOdayam'.
