--------------------------------
Above is the list of songs that I have from the film "bratuku teruvu". I am
sure that all of you have atleast heard the title, just because of the GREAT
song "andame aanandam". IMO apart from that, AND the last song in the list
theres no other well known/hit song from this film. Am I missing any songs?
And its difficult to believe that G had just one song in the film. I had seen
this film some time in 1983 but can't recall much (did n't like it very much,
I should say.). Did anyone see the film? Can you recall any other songs 
picturised on ANR?

As you see this film has three MDs. _bhuvana vijayam_ (book) says that G
composed "few" songs. Who has composed which song; esp. the big hit? 

An anecdote at the end: how many times you wondered/laughed/joked at the
"Piano" songs in Telugu. There were quite a few in old films. Probably
"andame aanandam" is the most perfectly picturised Piano song. Those fingers,
perfectly executing the notes, shown in the closeup are NOT ANR's but
Saluri's son :-).

Regards,
Sreenivas
