Soundtrack[edit]

The music was composed by Singeetham Srinivasa Rao who debuted as a music director with this movie. The lyrics were by Chi. Udaya Shankar.[6] Udayashankar had casually written the song Yaava Kaviyu Bareyalara meant as a Bhaavageethe and not specifically for any movie. However, once Singeetam saw the poem, he insisted on using the same for this movie.
