Career ::


Seetharama Sastry debuted with writing songs for Kasinathuni Viswanath. Though his debut song was for Janani Janmabhoomi (1984), where his name was shown as Chembolu Seeta Rama Sastry, the songs in the movie Sirivennela w in the film title it self the Sirivennela is added in front of his name

The songs of this movie are so wonderful and rich in meaning that each of the songs is remembered to this day as landmarks in Telugu film-music.

A particular highlight of the movie is the song "Vidhata Thalapuna", sung by S. P. Balasubrahmanyam and P. Susheela. The song is about Aum, the most sacred syllable in Hinduism, from which the Veda traditions originated. Other notable songs include Adibhikshuvu Vadinedi Koredhi and Ee gali Ee Nela. The songs and their lyrics became hugely popular with Sastry, subsequently winning his first Nandi Award for Best Lyricist for the song "Aadi Bhikshuvu". He won the Nandi Award for his first film itself, which was a one-of-a-kind event, never to be repeated as of 2016.

He then wrote lyrics for many songs in films such as Swayam Krushi, Swarna Kamalam, Samsaram Oka Chadarangam, Shrutilayalu, Pelli Chesi Choodu. The lyrics for these songs got high reception and Sitarama Sastry was established as one of the major lyricists in the Telugu film industry. He won his second Nandi Award for Best Lyricist for the song "Telavardemo Swamy" from the film Shrutilayalu and his third Nandi Award for Best Lyricist for the song "Andela Ravamidi Padamuladaa" from the film Swarna Kamalam in 1988. He also made record by winning hat-trick Nandi Awards in 1986, 1987 and 1988 and became the first one to do so.

His next major breakthrough was Rudraveena. The lyrics for songs like "Tarali raada", said to have inspired many people.

He then gave lyrics to many songs from the films such as Swarakalpana, Anna Thammudu, Indrudu Chandrudu, Alludugaru, Antam with all songs gaining high critical reception. His lyrics for the film Gaayam were considered as a path-breaking effort and gained him, his fourth Nandi Award for Best Lyricist for the song "Surajyamavaleni", in 1993.

He then wrote lyrics for many songs for films such as Kshana Kshanam, Swati Kiranam, Money, Govinda Govinda, Criminal, Gulabi, Love Birds (Telugu Version), Taraka Ramudu, Shubhalagnam, Srikaram and Little Soldiers. All these songs made him extremely popular. He won his fifth and sixth Nandi Award for Best Lyricist for the films Shubhalagnam and Srikaram respectively.

His next venture was Ninne Pelladatha, in which he was the single card lyricist. All songs were big hits, both lyrically and musically.

He followed up with lyrics for songs in films such as Shubha Muhurtam, Priya Raagaalu, Aaha, Pelli Kanuka, Sindhooram, Aavida Maa Aavide, Chandralekha, Wife of V. Varaprasad, Seetharama Raju, Prema Katha etc. The lyrics for all these songs got appreciated. However, lyrics for the songs in the films Sindhooram, Prema Katha stand out. The former one was about naxalism and the latter one was a tragedy love story. His lyrics got extremely positive reception and won him his seventh and eighth Nandi Award for Best Lyricist for the songs "Ardha Shatabdapu" (Sindhooram) and "Devudu Karunistadani" (Prema Katha).
