“Om Namo Venkatesaya ” Movie Story Line:

Om Namo Venkatesaya is a devotional and biographical film, which has been written by K Raghavendra Rao. The movie is based on the life of Hathiram Bhavaji, who was an ardent devotee of Lord Venkaestwara. The director has weaved an interesting screenplay, which is engaging and entertaining.

Om Namo Venkatesaya is the biopic of ‘Hathiram Bhavaji’, a North Indian Saint who visited South India in 1500 CE (Common Era of Civilization). In his expeditions around the world to find peace, he visits ‘Tirumala’ and becomes an ardent devotee of Lord Venkateswara. Impressed by his devotion, Lord Venkateswara used to come to play dice with Hathiram daily in his temple. One Day, Lord Venkateswara gets late playing dice and leaves in a hurry leaving his ornament behind which also gets missed on his statue. The trustees of the temple doubt it on Hathiram Baba and take him to King’s court. The King in returns gives a punishment and Hathiram is faced with the danger of death. What happens next? and Will Lord Venkateswara come to save Hathiram? forms the rest of the story.


As Hathiram Bhavaji, Nagarjuna Akkineni has delivered superb performance, which is the highlight of Om Namo Venkatesaya. Anushka Shetty and Pragya Jaiswal have done justice to their roles. Saurabh Raj Jain has played Lord Venkateswara and his acting is another highlight of the film. Brahmanandam, Aditya Menon, Rao Ramesh, Raghu Babu, Pruthviraj and Vimala are also good assets of the movie
