Kranti is a film for every parent: Director and composer V Harikrisha
Team Kranti is all smiles as the Darshan starrer is set to open big in theatres today. The fans, who have been hand in hand with the Challenging Star since the inception of the film, are all geared up to create a revolutionary experience with 400 screens having the FDFS in Karnataka. The makers shared that Kranti will hit theatres on 450 screens, and will at least have 3000 shows on the opening day.
Speaking to CE, ahead of the film’s release, director and composer V Harikrisha tell us that Kranti is a star vehicle that talks about a necessary revolution within the education system. “Education is a household issue, which is represented by the titular character of Kranti. It is the story of every parent. Kranti is about responsibility, accountability, and how education has become a burden today.
The film revolves around government schools. “When such pertinent topics are told through a superstar like Darshan, the reach is wider, and the impact will be bigger,” says Harikrishna, adding, “Kranti is a film, which is made on a big canvas, and with larger than- life characters, but it is also about giving back something to the society.” Billed as a mass entertainer, which is written and directed by Harikrishna, Kranti marks the filmmaker’s second directorial after Yajamana.
“I don’t know where inspiration can come. I considered this a gift from God. I love penning my thoughts, usually in the form of lyrics for various songs. Today, my writing process has just got a bigger canvas,” says Harirkishna, who has paid a lot of attention to writing, for which he has consumed six months and he says will be the biggest highlight of the film.

In my opinion, story, screenplay, and dialogues are a chain, and as a director, it is best when I handle it all on my own,” he says. The collaboration between Darshan and Harikrishna goes a long way back, and the former says, “It is difficult to mount a story on the sole power of content, and that is where stardom comes in too.” Harikrishna further shares his experience of working with Darshan and says that he is always in awe of the actor’s memory power.
“He is a star, who takes the entire team on his shoulders. He doesn’t have any starry airs, one good quality in him is that he doesn’t bring his star image to the sets of any film, and that makes it easy for the director. Another biggest quality of Darshan is that he always prefers and encourages local talent,” says Harkrishna. Kranti also features Ravichandran in a pivotal role as a father to a young Darshan.
This is the first time Ravichandran is sharing screenspace with Darshan, which will be another highlight of Kranti. Apart from them, Kranti also stars RAchita Ram, Samyukta Hornad, Vainidhi Jagadish, Umashree, Mukhyamantri Chandru, Girish Shivanna, Dharmanna Kadur, Tarun Arora, and Raghu among others. With music by Harikrishna, Kranti has Karunakar handling the camerawork.

Kranti review: Darshan’s entertaining onscreen revolution echoes plight of government schools
The Challenging Star delivers yet another typical over-the-top commercial action-drama but with education at its epicentre.

The film Kranti hits two targets in one shot — the entertainment and educational systems, especially the plight of government schools.
Plus, it has all the elements required to make it commercially viable, something which also satisfies Darshan’s die-hard fans.
Music composer-director V Harikrishna penned the story and dialogues besides handling music and direction. He has dished out a well-balanced action-drama backed by a sensible subject that is at least good as a one-time watch for the audience.
The story is simple and revolves around Kranti Rayanna (Darshan), the son of a wealthy, respected man played by V Ravichandran.
Kranti does his schooling in a government school where he learned the best lessons in life through his beloved teacher.
However, he is sent abroad for a reason and Kranti ends up becoming a very successful businessman.
This plot allows the director to fulfil another essential element of the commercial venture which is to shoot in foreign locations.
Kranti returns to India to be a part of his government school’s centenary celebrations and the drama unfolds for almost three hours.
Senior actors and the bad guys are just the necessary part of the film while it is Darshan’s show all along until it hits the climax.
Ticks all boxes

As the saying goes, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, the film makes sure to present the most important issue of privatisation of education and how it’s affecting society through the charismatic onscreen presence of Darshan.
The director serves the “usuals”, too, including half-a-dozen fights where Darshan alone defeats no less than 50 to 100 men.
Other necessary elements such as the introduction scene, fights, romantic number, a short and cute love interest, a pinch of comedy, father-son sentiment, and a special number are among the long list of boxes that the makers have ticked for a paisa-vasool movie.
A feast for Darshan’s fans
The aforementioned aspects hold good only for Darshan fans and those who watch movies for timepass and do not mind a lesson or two on some issues.
Well, this implies that Kranti is not for serious minds.

Kranti also provides ample opportunity for the Challenging Star to take a dig at his real-life opponents and competitors through cleverly written dialogues that carry a punch.
It’s a must for Darshan’s fans. But for others, the film is a regular commercial movie with some lessons on the educational system.
There’s nothing extraordinary about the film, yet it is not so ordinary either. If it still doesn’t interest some of you, then wait for the OTT release.
