'Yentha Sakkagunnaave', the first song to be released from Rangasthalam is Devi Sri Prasad's baby all the way. The latest lyrical video song is cinema style folk at its best and also gives us more glimpses into Samantha Akkineni and Ram Charan's rural avatar.

And it only makes sense that Chandrabose happens to be the lyricist behind these beautiful words which have been strung together impressively. 'Yentha Sakkagunaave' maintains a folk-ish and subtle tone throughout and is composed in praise of Lakshmi, played by Samantha. Devi Sri Prasad's vocals drive this track dominated by a catchy chorus and the song conveys how head over heels Ram Charan is for Samantha in this upcoming Telugu drama.

The song also presents the essence of Rangasthalam, the village in which the movie is set. From the few glimpses we witness in the latest video, curiosity definitely rises to see the song come to life with an extremely chirpy and rural Samantha and rugged Ram Charan. Yes, the two lead actors are nothing like what we have seen them as before.

Needless to say, Prasad's latest is worth the hype and a song to listen to when you are in the mood for pure folk, that too on the big screen. While we have heard hits like 'Deeyalo Deeyalo' from the composer in the past, which belong to the traditional folk genre, 'Yentha Sakkagunaave' still stands out from his many fast-paced hits we have grooved to so far.

The video also introduces us to the various other makers of the film and gives us a peek into some fun behind the scenes. With all the rawness of the characters and the story captured in 'Yentha Sakkagunaave', we can now not wait to hear more from what sounds like a diverse album.

Till then, happy hymning Lacchimii, yentha sakkagunaavee.

Directed by Sukumar, Rangasthalam hits theaters on 30 March and the film has managed to top trends with some promising teasers so far.
