The movie saw the debut of Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry as a lyricist (he wrote al of the songs). Sitarama Sastry has taken the name of the movie, Sirivennela, as his own name, because of "the wonderful songs" he penned for the movie. Each of the songs is remembered to this day as land-marks in Telugu film-music.

"Sirivennela" Sitaramasastri is one of the most notable lyricists in Indian cinema for movies made in the Telugu language. His first work in films were the songs for K. Viswanath's Sirivennela. The songs in the movie were so phenomenally popular that the name of this movie got tagged to his given name. He is known to many as just "Sirivennela".

The movie revolves around the role of Pandit Hari Prasad, a blind flautist (played by Sarvadaman Banerjee)and a painter who is mute. The casting includes Suhasini and Moon Moon Sen as Jyotirmayi. The movie (one of the most celebrated musical masterpieces in Telugu) abounds in classical music composed by K. V. Mahadevan with flute renditions by the renowned falutist Hariprasad Chaurasia.
