O Friend, This Waiting! is a 2012 Indian, bilingual documentary film in Telugu and English written and directed by Sandhya Kumar, based on the poetry of 17th century Telugu composer Kshetrayya.[1][2] For its wholly unconventional investigation of the Devadasi tradition in Andhra, combining an appreciation of this delicate and sensuous art form with a genuine sociological exploration, the non feature film has received the National Film Award for Best Arts/Cultural Film at the 61st National Film Awards.[3][4] The film has received special mention at the Erasing Borders Festival of Classical Dance, Indo-American Arts Council, New York, 2013.[5]
