Sirivennela (Telugu: సిరివెన్నెల) is a 1986 critically acclaimed and block buster Telugu film. The movie was produced by Ch. Ramakrishna Reddy, N. Bhaskara Reddy, and U.Chinaveerraju, and directed by K. Viswanath.

The movie revolves around Pandit Hari Prasad, a blind flutist (played by Sarvadaman Banerjee), and a painter (Suhasini) who is mute. Hari Prasad lives with his only sister in a village which is also a minor tourist attraction. He makes a living by playing flute and entertaining the tourists. His life changes dramatically once Jyothirmayi (Moon Moon Sen) comes there and hears his musical talent. She helps him reach high standards in classical music.

Years pass by and Hari Prasad becomes one of the greatest flutists in India; he develops; a great love towards Jyothirmayi for whom he dedicates all his albums.

Sirivennela (one of the most celebrated musical masterpieces in Telugu) abounds in classical music composed by K. V. Mahadevan with flute renditions by the renowned flautist Hariprasad Chaurasia. The movie saw the debut of Sirivennela Sitaramasastri as a lyricist, who wrote all of the songs. Because of "the wonderful songs," rich in meaning, he penned for the movie, Sitarama Sastry has taken the name Sirivennela as a prefix to his own name. Each of the songs is remembered to this day as a part of landmark 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."
