The film began production in early 2021. Anji and Sriram were to work together on a Tamil film and came together instead for this film, which is based on an event in producer Achut Ramarao's life. This film marks the directorial debut of cinematographer Anji and is his 50th film as a cinematographer. The film is about the reunion of 10th standard classmates. Avika Gor plays a character older than herself. The film was shot in Chikmagalur, Hyderabad, Rajahmundry, Sri Lanka and the United States.
10th Class Diaries was theatrically released on 1 July 2022. Initially, the film was scheduled to be released on 4 March 2022. It was later pushed back to 24 June 2022, before postponing to the current date.
A critic from The Times of India opined that "What works in favour of the film is its light-hearted humour, the effervescent feeling of love, cinematic and peppy vibe after the interval and impressive performances by the lead and supporting actors". A critic from 123Telugu wrote that "On the whole, 10th Class Diaries is an okayish movie that works only in parts. Comedy by Vennela Ramarao and a few emotional scenes are fine to watch".
Calling it "mixed memories," a reviewer from NTV appreciated the storyline and cinematography but pointed out uninspiring screenplay and music as its minus points. Sanju of Sakshi felt that despite faltering at times, Anji has succeeded in delivering a good film in his directorial debut. Aithagoni Raju of Asianet News Telugu opined that 10th Class Diaries takes the viewers down their memory lanes. In a more critical review, ABP Desam rated 1/5, writing that the screenplay tests the patience of audience.
