The film’s launch was a big event. Chiranjeevi, Dada Saheb Phalke Award recipient Akkineni Nageswara Rao and Darsakendra K Raghavender Rao attended the affair at Rama Naidu Studios, Hyderabad and Muhurtham.

Why are we reading about this in a blog on the Caribbean? Because the film, a musical, is based on the fictional story of a band formed by Indians born and brought up in the Caribbean whose members go to the USA in search of their fortune. Their struggles and obstacles form the plot of the film, whose slogan is ‘Shout for Success.’ The film’s music was composed by Chakri, with lyrics by Chandra Bose.
