Sampoorna Ramayanam


Based on the ancient epic literature, NT Rama Rao acted as Rama and Padmini as Sita and Sivaji Ganesan as his brother Barathan. Music was by K V Mahadevan. Sivaji Ganesan became more famous than the hero as he lived the character of Bharathan both by his dialogue delivery and histrionic skills.

NT Rama Rao acts as Rama for the first time in his career. For Sivaji ganaesan also this was the first Bhakthi film. Released in 1958 this film had two intervals.

Director Somu had an interesting anecdote related to this film.. After its release, he went to see the Kanchi Maha Periava Chnadrasekhara Saraswathi Swamigal. He gave a small note stating "Somu Ramayanam director" to the Mutt offical. In front of him, waiting for the Swamiji's dharshan were the celebrated couple M.S. Subbulakshmi and Kalki Sadasivam. But to his surprise he was called ahead of them by the Seer of Kanchi to receive his blessings.
