Kommula Sreedhar Reddy from Hanamkonda is slowly but steadily making a name for himself in the highly competitive film industry

He’s a techie from Telangana who moved through the Regional Engineering College in Warangal, IIT-Chennai and onwards to Infosys in India and abroad too. In 2010, the movie bug that bit him earlier in his life manifest itself in the form of Sneha Geetam, a film that attracted attention.

The year 2011 saw the release of his second film, It’s my Love Story and now, his third offering, Back Bench Student (BBS), is all set to hit the screens on March 15. That’s Kommula Sreedhar Reddy from Hanamkonda who is slowly but steadily making a name for himself in the highly competitive film industry. Soon after he started Madhura Audio, he became known simply as Madhura Sreedhar.

BBS is produced by M.V.K. Reddy on the Shirdi Sai Combines banner and presented by Multidimension Entertainments. The protagonist (Mahat Raghavendra) fails in at least 16 subjects in his course, and the story is about how this student’s life turns out to be. “Failure in exams is not failure in life” is the message.

Piaa Bajpai, a fresh face from Mumbai and Archana Kavi, an accomplished young actress from God’s own country essay the lead roles with the hero, also providing the glamour elements. Sunil Kashyap, who has been with Sreedhar all along, has scored the music and yes there are no double meaning dialogues or item numbers for the front-benchers. “Yes, there are a couple of fights but honest, there is no bloodshed,” he said.

BBS was canned in 55 days of shooting in Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam with Prasad G.K. as the Director of Photography. Interestingly, it has ‘Jagada, Jagada ..’ a song sung by Tamil actor Silambarasan @ Simbu that’s a re-mix of that famous number from Akkineni Nagarjuna’s Geetanjali. And yes, Anirudh Ravichander of ‘Kolaveri’ fame has sung the title track.
