The plot revolves around the life of a pianist who gets caught up in the middle of a murder mystery.  

Maestro is directed by Melapaka Gandhi, who has spearheaded projects such as Krishnarjuna Yudham earlier. Bankrolled by Sudhakar Reddy and Nikitha Reddy under the banner of Sreshth movies, the film is slated for release on June 11.  

Maestro has cinematography by J Yuvraj, while Hari K Vedanth will be cranking the camera for the venture. Andhadhun was critically acclaimed and won multiple awards including the Filmfare awards for Best Film (Critics), Best Director, Best Actor Male, Best Actor Female bagged by Sriram Raghavan, Ayushmann and Tabu respectively.
