Back Bench Student movie review was being awaited by the cinegoers who were searching for the movie to come and hit the screens. Back Bench Student Telugu movie review is now out to let the viewers know what the film is all about. After reading this analytical piece, you guys would know what Back Bench Student movie rating would be. Read on and have fun. The film has been directed by Madhura Sridhar Reddy and produced by MVK Reddy. The movie stars Mahat Raghavendra, Archana Kavi, Piaa Bajpai and Sharat Babu in main leads.

The film is not any novel cinematic effort at all since the plot is the same which we have grown up watching – love triangle mainly. One guy and there are two girls falling in love for him and the same jealously factor that often the movies of these kinds carry on celluloid. Well, no matter if the film’s script and story are old as hills, what matters is the execution has to be powerful to get the cinegoers glued to the screens. But unfortunately the execution of the subject on celluloid is much weak that you want to slip from the theater. There is nothing to rave big about in every department of the film except the performances which nonetheless raise your spirits.

Karthik (Mahat Raghavendra) is an engineering student. He is the one student who loves sitting in the last bench in the class. He soon starts loving Priyanka (Archana Kavi). The four years of engineering get completed and Archana becomes a graduate but Karthik still has 16 subjects to finish. He does not let his family members know about his failure. Archana leaves for the U.S. and he thinks that she is leaving because he is a failure. He becomes a friend of Chaitra (Piaa Bajpai) who also arranges a job for him. Soon this friendship turns into love. And here the twist comes up when Priyanka returns from the U.S.

The script is not well penned and has many flaws. Story is old and not interested at all. Direction by Madhura Sridhar Reddy is a lackluster. Music by Sunil Kashyap is boring. Editing is not crispy. Cinematography is just about okay.


Mahat Raghavendra impresses with his acting skills. Archana Kavi looks stunning and enacts the part well. Piaa Bajapi too looks strapping in her role. Rest of the cast does fine as well.

Final Verdict:

On the whole, Back Bench Student is a boring fiesta with bad direction, boring story and full of flaws script. Leave it.
