Not many but some of the songs are by cinAre and many by veeToori, other
lyricists being dEvulapalli (ghanA ghana sundara), AtrEya and dASarathi.
All the verses (padyAlu) in the movie were by veeToori. 

Other numbers missing in the list:

  * chindulu vEyakurA Sreeranga neetulu
  * vanne tarugani vajrAlu (padyaM)
  * kESavA mAdhavA

The movie starred ranjan (hero), supported by anjali (heroine) and
reeTA. I remember the above song sequence was picturised on ranjan

As Sree rAmannagAru mentioned, V J varma sings the song 'pOvammA' though
his name doesn't appear in the credits. I guess there shd be at least a
couple of more female singers not listed in the movie.

I might be wrong, but the two nATakaM songs could have been written by
