Well versed in Hindustani and Carnatic music, Bhanumathi Ramakrishna was not only a wonderful singer, but a multi-talented personality. A leading actress, a director, and a producer, she was one of the pioneers of Telugu movie industry. Here's her rendition of this popular Thyagaraja krithi from the 1964 Telugu movie Vivaha Bandham.


Nagumomu Ganaleni....

GBL,
That was nice! At first, in that distant shot, she looked a bit like Sowkar Janaki because she is slim here and that wig makes her look different, though her sweet voice is unmistakably hers from the very start.

VKailasam,
Her expressive voice captures it all just in the word 'nagumOmu', like BMK.

I saw this film in tenkAsi bharathan theater as an elementary school boy along with my mother and siblings.
PB has also sung a western no.in this film when her daughter sulks about her singing when she tries hard to compose a song for her college function.I like PB in spite of her over acting.

Bhanumathy was a good singer besides being an actress. This is a good song by her. I have not seen this movie and she looks pretty.

Ganeshkant,
Are you sure about Bhanumathi's over-acting? I have only seen her earlier films, so I don't know perhaps. To me, she was all exuberance and that was engaging.
Did Shivaji over-act? May be he did (all that old drama tradition). Yet, his hamming was worth a dozen Oscars or a Chevalier!
