Has anyone seen this Bhanumati, NTR starrer? Theres a beautiful duet: andaalu
chindETi aanandaseema, by Bhanumati & AM Rajah. Whom does AMR sing for? For
NTR? But all the verses are sung by Ghantasala! BTW, its the first time I am
listening to the complete music track of this film. The film has certainly
great music! And theres a good number of verses by G ... quite unusual for a
Bhanumati production :-). As I once said, excepting "lailaa-majnu" (1949)
theres no "bharaNi" film with more than 2 songs  by G. Heres an exception :).

Also, the stamps of TV Raju and Addepalli Ramarao are clearly visible, though
the grand-dame of Telugu cinema claimed the music for this film.
