Chakravarthy is the Kannada film featuring Darshan Thoogudeep in the lead role. The film is scripted and directed by AV Chintan. Actor Siddanth produced the film and Anaji Nagaraj is the executive producer. Deepa Sannidhi plays the female lead and the film has Dinakar Thoogudeepa, Srujan Lokesh, “Aditya” and Kumar Bangarappa in the supporting roles. The music composition is by Arjun Janya and Chandrashekar K S cranked the camera.


The story is about how Shankar, a normal guy turns into Chakravarthy, an underworld don. Although Chakravarthy is an underworld don, his wife Shanthi doesn’t know anything about his underworld business. The film starts in the 1980s and continues to the current period. The story is split into three phases. Kitappa is the close pal of Chakravarthy. He grows along with Chakravarthy and shares all his joys and sorrows. The life history of the Don is shown in a different perception in this movie. Watch it in theaters!

Star Performance

Darshan has lived as a Don in Chakravarthy. His expressions differ between the normal guy named Shankar and the Don named Chakravarthy. Srujan and Dinakar played their part well. Sharath Lohitashwa unveils the story of the Don through his narration.


The screenplay writer Chintan makes his debut with Chakravarthy. He had worked hard to prove his excellence. Although the Don sector is good, we feel that the romantic portions are forcibly inserted to the plot. To be particular, the romantic songs seem to be unnecessary for such an action plot.

What’s There?

  • Darshan’s stylish look and performance

What’s Not There?

  • The screenplay is not much impressive and it rubs off the performance by Darshan
  • Climax is one of the biggest drawbacks in the film
  • Unnecessary romantic scenes didn’t fit in the plot
  • Predictable story


 The film is a predictable mass entertainer only for the fans of Darshan. The Challenging Star’s stylish appearance would impress his fans for sure!
