Vanaja exhausted after a Tillana

Vanaja (Mamatha Bhukya) is exhausted after dancing a Kuchipudi Tillana. In the right corner of the image is a Nattuvangam - a set of cymbals that a Nattuvanar uses while keeping the rhythm. In the film, the Nattuvanar (Srinivas Karra) is heard when he breaks into staccato verses such as "Tha-Dhit-Thai" to the accompaniment of the a Mridangam - a two ended drum that is played seated on the ground.
