Upcoming Movies That Have The Potential To Change The Way We Look At Kannada Cinema


There was a time in Kannada film industry when the other film industries including Bollywood turned towards us, the golden era we can call. But soon the filmmakers were bit with bug of commercialising the films and somewhere we saw the decline in the quality of content. I don’t say that “no” good films were made, but the number gradually decreased. But luckily from the last half a decade or so, we saw a drastic change in the quality and a hunger for content films. By: Sharath Byloli

Rangitaranga, Godi Banna Sadarana Mykattu, Ulidavaru Kandanthe, U-Turn are a few of the many examples we have today and these type of films are changing the way we see the Kannada film industry. Here are a few such upcoming films that will change the way we see Sandalwood ! 

1. Avane Srimannarayana 

The film staring Rakshith Shetty, Directed by a newbie Sachin and is written by the kirik party fame Rakshith Shetty and the seven odds is surely going to bring a new wave the kannada film industry and the teaser they released is itself the proof for that.  

2. KGF 

The film staring Rocking star Yash and directed by Ugram fame Prashanth Neel is also a masterpiece in making and apparently it has become the most awaited movie of the decade. 

3. 777 Charlie
