Nothing dithers the film lovers in Andhra Pradesh. Be it rain, traffic, restrictions in entry even after having vehicle passes, need for a long walk in rain inside the premises of a huge HITEX campus, our Andhra people are second to none. Thus, Hyderabad International Conventional Centre (HICC), HITEX, Hyderabad, saw a huge turnout inspite of heavy rains, traffic and physical hurdles near the premises. Yes, it is for the Oberoi Santosham VI Film Awards.
So, the lustrous crowd was blessed with the presence of various film stars and recipients of awards. By this time our Andhra crowd must be familiar and clear that any movie related function cannot take place without Dr.Dasari Narayana Rao, Ex Union minister. Here too he is the chief guest supported by stars Nandamuri Balakrishna, Venkatesh, Rajendra Prasad, Chakri, Abhinayasree, lleana and others.
Singing 50000 songs is something an ordinary man can never boast of. Santosham added glory to itself by awarding �Lifetime Achevement Award� to SP Balasubramaniam. Chief guest Dasari too honored himself by felicitating the singer. Praising SPB for his versatility tone that played vital part in dubbing 10 different Avtars of Kamal Hasan in Dasavatharam, he proclaimed that the void created by Ghantasala was well filled-in by the great SPB. Dasari also praised Suresh Kondeti for his committed role played in bringing the status of Santosham awards equivalent to the Nadi Awards.
Nandamuri Balakrishna appeared to have stolen the function, obliging by delivering a lengthy dialogue from �Okka Magadu�. He fondly reminisced his past and NTRs teachings to him and concluded his speech with best wishes to Suresh Kondeti.
SPB, slightly limping due to his heroics at the airport trying to save an old man from fall, was too emotional, thanking his parents, guru Kodhandapani and the beloved public for all his achievements. He pleased the gathering by singing two songs from old movies.
The achievers Venkatesh for best actor, Bhoomika for best actress, Saikumar for best dubbing and many others like Dr Rajendra Prasad, Sekhar Kammula, C Kalyan and CC Reddy spoke in the function with special thanks to Suresh Kondeti.
The function which started with dull note got charged with the Jalsa song of Baba Sehgal and I am the boss, Andhra Boss. Kasturi and troupe, Abhinayashree and Chakri also displayed their talents on the stage to entertain the audience.
