Some of you may not understand the meaning of single card but it is a term used in the entertainment industry especially in the department of lyricists. Whenever a lyricist writes all the songs for a film then it is called a single card. In Tollywood, one man is quite famous for that.

He is none other than Sirivennela Seetarama Sastry but in the last few years, he has literally displaced himself from the song writing circuit. Given his caliber in providing songs, the filmnagar circles call him ‘Single Card’ Sastry. Now, after a long time, he seems to be getting back to his original game.

Recently, Seetarama Sastry penned all the songs for the magnum opus Rudramadevi and now he has done that for Mani Ratnam’s Ok Bangaram. In the recent past, Sastry has done that for the Arvind Krishna starrer Adavi Kachina Vennela. But for a long time he was silent and is not writing aggressively like before. However, now he seems to have entered the field again. At a time when the likes of Bhaskarabhatla and Ramajogayya Sastry are ruling the roost, the re-entry of Sirivennela Seetarama Sastry will sure create an impact.
