Hare Rama Hare Krishna Kannada Movie Review


It is a Do or Die case for the protagonist Anand (Srimurali). In the big bad Bengaluru, the KAS office passed out Anand hailing from a lower middle class family to get the position of Karnataka Administrative Officer has to pay the bribe. Anand father in the bad company collects some money but it goes to the wrong hand. Anand begs for the return of his money but he is takes the position of a murders instead.

Once going to police station Anand is frequently checked in to the police station for no fault of his. It is time for Anand to get fed up of the system. He takes on the bloody rowdy of Srirampura and goes on a killing spree. Slowly Anand reaches a good position in the underworld. He takes on his opponent in the Hafta Vasooli case. In the clash the opponent gang leader son is murdered. That is the beginning of end of Anaand.

The opponent don (played by Kari Subbu) unite all the area rowdies and he wants the end of Anand. On a rainy night as expected the family members of Anand are killed inside the house and Anand is beaten badly on the streets of his area.


Director of the film Ashok Kumar has the age old theory in his stock. Scores of films of this type of have come and gone in silver screen. There is not even a minute difference from the earlier similar films.

The bottleneck of this film is the first half. It is a big bore and nothing happens. The ‘Chandra Chakori’ fame hero Sri Murali goes very silent in the first half and violent in the second half.

Instead of distributing the silent and violent mood for the film for the first and half second half the director should have mixed it up to create lot of curiosity to the viewers.

In the second half it becomes route of killing for living. The expectations of the viewers do not go wrong. Once the protagonist comes to city it becomes so common thing. Taking revenge has not happened in the eight reels so the hero obviously goes on the killing mood a 3rd standard student can guess.

This kind of film is what lacks substance and the hero is beaten throughout the first half for what sake. Where is the entertainment in the internet age? Where is the relief via comedy in the first half? Tragedy strikes in the first half and in the second half there is no entertaining element from this film ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’.

In fact there is no meaning for the title from the contents available. One should understand that being Rama a silent is not required and one should become Krishna a violent to live.

If that is the concept of the producer and director of this film what is the purpose. There is no finishing given to the protagonist. What lacks here is the intelligence of writer and director.


Sri Murali facing tragedy in the film career with series of flops has not offered anything new. He is known as lively guy on the silver screen. That is very much lacking in this film. Holding the long sharp edge weapon he looks so weak. He is a loser from this film because of his violent second half.

Srimurali younger brother of Vijaya Raghavendra and closely related to Dr Rajakumar family should look at how the career of power star Puneeth Rajakumar his cousin is shaping up. It is high time Srimurali correct his mistakes.

Roopasri is better than Pooja Gandhi in this film. Pooja Gahdi has added one more to the list of her films. She has nothing big and her dubbing is very poor.

Siddaraj Kalyankar, Achyuthkumar, Padma Vasanthi, Gururaj Hoskote, Mico Nagaraj, Kari Subbu given good support for the film.


The Maestro in music Ilayaraja and master in lyrics and music Hamsalekha combination has not done any wonders. Not even one song is worth remembering. The sorrow song sung by Dr KJ Yesudas is meaningful on life.

PKH Doss camera work is good in the songs. It is very bright. When the violence takes place on the screen it looks dull.

The editing for the film is average. It is at this editing table wonders could have been possible.

Last but not the Least –
Silence is OK Brilliance is needed but violence is very bad!
