We all believe that the so-called new-age film making began just a few years back, but the genius Sekhar Kammula started making new-age films right from his first film Dollar Dreams. Dollar Dreams movie was much ahead that it even suits the present youth and their states and situations.


After completing his Engineering from CBIT College, Sekhar Kammula did M.S in the USA and then joined in the fine arts. Holding a degree in Master of Fine Arts, Kammula did his first independent film Dollar Dreams which garnered him the National Film Award for the Best first film. His second film Anand remained a classic. This movie is the best example to know the taste of Sekhar Kammula coming to the cinema.


His third movie Godavari was another masterpiece. This movie is one of the all-time favorites for many. He put a lot of effort into making this movie, but commercially it was not so successful. Even though there are die-hard fans for Godavari, and watches n number of times while telecasting on TV. Sekhar Garu has a different approach towards the music, and albums in all his films remain timeless. Another specialty in his movies is the characterization of heroines. They are so natural in their actions and dialogues. Rupa in Anand and Sita in Godavari stood as standards for the heroine characterizations.




Later, Kammula changed his style and did Happy Days movie setting up everything in his previous college CBIT. It's not an exaggeration saying Sekhar Kammula is the only director who had shown the college life that beautifully. Happy Days became a smash hit at the box-office and built interest in many youths to pursue Engineering. Though Happy Days was made in a confined budget, the respect and fame he gained have no boundaries.


Taking three years of gap, Shekar Garu came up with a political drama called Leader introducing Daggubati Rana as a lead. This movie shows his anger and concern towards the society he lives in. We can say this is the BEST POLITICAL DRAMA ever a Telugu has produced. Leader brought the State Nandi Award for Sekhar Kammula for the Best story.


After doing a couple of movies in between he did Fidaa again taking a break for three years. The magic of Kammula's films lies in picturizing the mood of the scene before the action. In this film, it can be shown in every frame. Also, how can we forget the role of Bhaanumathi? Fidaa movie is a stepping stone for many directors and writers to write their characters with the Telangana dialect. Thanks to Sekhar Kammula for that.




The craze of every director is like a wave consisting of crests and troughs. It goes up and downs with the results of their movies. But after the release of Happy Days, Sekhar Kammula came to a stage that his movies didn't show any effect on him. A movie releasing from his directorial itself boosts the craze of that film. This is all because he makes what he believes, and he believes what he makes.


Today, Shekar Kammula Garu celebrating his 48th birthday, and the team 9by10.com wishing him many more happy returns of the day. Thanking him for giving wonderful memories to cherish and wishing him to give many more.
