Director: Santosh Kumar
Cast: Alankar, Yieshaana, Arya, Arathi, Hanumanthe Gowda, Bhavani Prakash, Keerthiraj, and Vanishree
Duration: 137 minutes
The movie Campus Kranthi is about an affluent father (Keerthiraj) who finds it tough to discipline his two sons Abhi (Arya) and Adi (Alankar). With no other option, he sends them to his friend who works a college principal. Both of them join the college situated on Karnataka-Maharashtra border. Abhi falls in love with Kanasu (Arathi) and Adi falls in love with Lakshmi (Yieshaana). As expected, the students from Maharashtra oppose the students from Karnataka.
Most of the actors are newcomers and they have to undergo training in acting to prove their acting skills. There are only three actors who are familiar with Kannada audiences. Yeishaana and Arathi look beautiful but the same cannot be said when it comes to their performance. Arya and Alankar struggle a lot even to deliver dialogues.
Bhavani Prakash, who acted as a girls’ hostel warden, has acted well. Hanumanthe Gowda, Keerthiraj, Vanishree provide good support. Music by V Manohar and cinematography by PKH Das are good.
