Biography
 
S. Rajeswara Rao noted music director for South Indian films was the son of the famous mridangam player and lyricist Dwaram Venkataswami Naidu.

In 1934 the Hutchins recording company conducted a talent hunt in Vizianagaram. Not surprisingly Rajeswara Rao was spotted and the company took the child along with his father to Bangalore. There Rajeswara recorded the �Bhagavad Gita� along with P.

V. Das and Gudavalli Rambramham. In 1934 he was cast as Lord Krishna in the film Sri Krishna Leelalu. During this period he also played the role of Abhimanyu in the film Maya Bazar (1936). Shortly afterwards he went to Calcutta to act in a film titled Keechaka Vada and met eminent musicians like Pankaj Mullick and K. L. Saigal.


In 1938 he returned to Madras and began a full fledged career in the film industry. Around this time he formed his own music troupe. He made his debut as a music composer in the film Jayaprada. During those days the playback system had not become the standard industry practice and the actor/singers were much in demand. So Rajeswara Rao continued to act in such films as Balangamma and Illaulu in which he played a part opposite famous singer Balasaraswati Devi. During this time he also produced some charming Telugu popular songs among which �Thummeda oka saari� �Kopamela Radha� �Podarintilona� and �Rave rave koyila� still form the repertoire of nostalgic Telugu music.

The most prolific period of this composer�s career began with his joining Gemini Productions in 1940. For a decade he remained with Gemini. His next assignment came from B. N. Reddy. He worked as music director in the 1950 film Malleswari. In the same period he worked as music director in other musical hits like Missamma Vipranarayana etc. As a composer Rajeswara Rao had a particular fondness for ragas like Bhimplas Sindhu Bhairavi Kafi Kalyani Pahad and Malkauns and most of his songs are wholly based on these ragas or are based on a blend of different ragas.

He passed away in the year 2000.
