This movie has some cool technical inputs and musical score. Kudos to Director Srinivasa Prasad for selecting Prachanda Ravana as his debut movie based on a play written 50 years ago by Kanagal Prabakara Shastri. Devaraj as Ravana has done a stupendous job and so is Sudharani as Mandodhari. Rajeshwari as Seetha and Bharat Bhagavathar as Anjaneya have performed tremendously well. The grandeur of the sets and melodious music by Vajrappa and Mysore Gopi adds a lot to the film.

This movie is a 2010 Kannada drama starring Diganth, Supriya and Rupa Shri. It highlights different aspects of a father-son relationship. 

The main storyline of the movie is the relationship between a very good son and his strict and enraged father. This story idea is something that is definitely relatable to people.

Krishna is a much-misunderstood son who runs a grocery shop. His father has a short temper and often cows down the son. Krishna remains an obedient son and takes on all the insults heaped by his Dad. The love story between Krishna and Thulasi adds an interesting angle to the story.

Diganth and Avinash have delivered a powerhouse performance.

Diganth surprises with his convincing emotional performance. Veteran Avinash has excelled in the role of a tough father. Their chemistry works.

Cameraman is Naveen Suvarna and the music composer is Raja Ramesh.

Good story and neat performances from the two lead male actors make Putra a good watch!
