Ori Devuda, the Telugu remake of Oh My Kadavule, directed by Ashwath Marimuthu, kickstarted its promotions with a bang with a special promo featuring Venkatesh (in an extended cameo) and also announcing its release date - October 21 (Diwali). Vishwak Sen, Mithila Palkar play the lead roles in the film and the rom-com also marks her Telugu debut. PVP Cinema in collaboration with Sri Venkateswara Creations is producing the film. Leon James is the music director for the same.

The second song from Ori Devuda, a calming melody titled Avunanavaa, sung by Sid Sriram, was launched today. Ramajogaiah Sastry is the lyricist for the number shot on the lead pair Vishwak and Mithila on a bike. The song explores how Vishwak is all over Mithila and helpless about falling for her. The lyrics, across multiple stanzas, describe what's so special about the male lead's love interest and how he has no control over his life amidst her presence.

The initial lines "Emani anaalani..Thochani kshanaalivi..Ae malupo edhurayye payanamidhaa..Aamani nuvvenani..Neejatha chaeraalani" are enough to describe the mood and the flavour of the song. While the composition and lyrics are first-rate, it becomes something very special in the hands of a singer like Sid Sriram, who penetrates the depths of the lines with utmost conviction. This is easily among the best Sid Sriram numbers in his tryst with Telugu cinema.

Pearl V Potluri and Parum V Potluri have bankrolled the film. Vidhu Ayyanna is the cinematographer while Tharun Bhascker has written the dialogues. Vijay Mukthavarapu is the editor. The first song Paathashalaloo, sung by Armaan Malik and Sameera Bharadwaj, was released earlier this year. Ori Devuda's Tamil original - Oh My Kadavule - can be watched on ZEE5. Vishwak Sen's recent release was Ashoka Vanamlo Arjuna Kalyanam directed by Vidyasagar. The film is now streaming on aha.
