The makers of the actor’s 55th film, which had been called #D55 had earlier announced that they would reveal the title on the auspicious occasion of Ganesha Chaturthi.
The moment that Challenging Star Darshan fans have been waiting for is here. #D55 has a name and it's Kranti.
The film reunites Darshan with the team of Yajamana, including composer-turned-director V Harikrishna and producer duo Shylaja Nag and B Suresha of Studio Media House. Since his last release, Roberrt, earlier this year, Darshan had only announced his next venture with the makers of Yajamana but has not been on a film set for a while. This is the first big announcement from the team.
This film will mark Harikrishna’s return to the director’s chair. He had earlier co-directed Yajamana with Pon Kumaran, in which Darshan was paired with Rashmika Mandanna, while Tanya Hope was seen in a pivotal character. Darshan’s Roberrt had brought Asha Bhat to Kannada cinema, so, it would be interesting to see who gets to romance him in Kranti. The actor’s films are also known for its ensemble cast, bringing artistes like Jagapathi Babu, Thakur Anoop Singh, Ravi Kishan, Sonu Sood and Rajat Bedi, among others to Kannada cinema, while also having the who’s who of Sandalwood onboard. All eyes will now be on the makers about who they choose to be part of Kranti.
Expectations of this film, of course, are high, since Yajamana was a successful venture for the team. The film, about an oil mafia scam in which an underdog was pitted against a corporate giant, was widely appreciated for its production values, performances, and, of course, Harikrishna’s musical score. The aim now will have to be to match or top this, which will be interesting to see. Watch this space for more news on Kranti, which is set to go on floors shortly. #Krantibegins is already a trending topic!
