The Top Ten
1 Bangarada Manushya

This is the movie that inspired me the most! Since then, I have watched hundreds of English movies in the United States (and Hindi movies), but none have changed my mind!

Definitely the top Kannada movie of the great Dr. Rajkumar. This movie inspired thousands of urban people to take up agriculture at that period, and even today, many villagers worship Rajkumar for this movie.

This is the only movie that shows to me that nothing is permanent in our life. There is one Guru who teaches me how to react when something does not belong to us. Dr. Raj Kumar is simply a legend.

2 Naagarahaavu (1972)

Superb movie. Brilliant acting by Vishnuvardhan in his debut movie. No one has had such a roaring debut in Indian Cinema. Hats off to Puttanna.

Superb movie of all time. The Angry Young Man series started with Vishnu Dada in Sandalwood. This movie should be in the number 1 position.

All-time hit and best direction in the Kannada film industry.

3 Mungaru Male

This movie brought back Kannada movie fame and glory once again, mainly the music industry gained a lot after this movie, and many melody songs came later. I have watched it 5 times. Every department of this movie is perfect.

A beautiful love story takes you through the roller coaster of emotions. It is surprisingly fresh and fun-filled. All the departments in the movie gave their best results.

This movie has one of the deepest elements of love that appears superficial to viewers at first sight. It is a delight to re-witness Ganesh's emotional acting once again!

4 Sangolli Rayanna

Number 1 history created movie in Sandalwood. Darshan Sir plays very well, acting in this movie. The film climax is ultimate. Everyone loves this movie, an all-time record movie, one & only Sangolli Rayanna!

This movie was well-researched and very well-made with the biggest budget of Rs 50 Crores, during a time when movies were made at an average of Rs 5 Crores. Our own very first freedom fighter. I liked the movie as it gave a revolutionary experience to the entire family.

The film is very good. Darshan has also acted in the same way. But I like the real Rayanna from those days.

5 Om

Spectacular movie with rowdism as a central subject in the 90s. Real rowdies of Bangalore, when they were ruling at their peak, are depicted in this movie. I'm proud to say that this is the one and only movie in the world which has been re-released 550 times with impressive box office collections.

Now also the movie runs with house full theatre. That's what Uppi's talent is. He is a God-gift for Kannada movies. In old moments, there were no competitors anyone could click like Raj Kumar, but Uppi, he is the real hero who came up by his own talent.

This is the first time I am watching a Kannada movie, that is Om. The story, acting, songs, music, and making of this movie are all perfect.

6 Kempe Gowda

Kiccha Sudeep is a leader in this movie. The villains are good at fighting. It is a good movie, and the songs are superb. I like both the movie and the songs.

Sudeep is talented in this picture, and the movie is superb with all nice songs.

It was a remake film, but it was a wonderful hit, and Sudeep's acting was extraordinary.

7 Milana

I like this movie. Appu's acting is wonderful and the best in top Kannada movies. I like this film so much.

Best movie I like so much. Too much.

It is a great movie for our boss, Puneeth Rajkumar.

8 Lucia

The best Kannada movie ever, and hats off to the director for such innovative thinking. It is innovative among all Indian movies.

Lucia's non-linear script is one of the best I have watched. It's a breakthrough in Sandalwood.

Mind-blowing... A movie that can bring Kannada cinema to international standards... (not kidding!)

9 Paramathma

Natural acting. The climax makes me cry. It's a wonderful feeling to watch this movie.

I like this movie because just one sentence changes life, "jothegirada jeeva endigintha jeevantha." I most like this sentence. This credit goes to Yograj Bat.

10 Mata

A very good movie and a must-watch. The movie has all the elements present in life with a meaning.

It is an awesome movie. The director has brought very valuable things in a comic manner. It is amazing.

Upendra is the great director in the Kannada industry. Without creativity, film can't exist.

The Contenders
11 Galipata

I would call this the best movie ever made. Ganesh, Rajesh, and Diganth seem to have put in all the effort they possibly could. The locations are amazing too.

Awesome direction and superb casting. A perfect movie.

Yogananda K: Amazing movie that every youth should watch. It has been shot at cool places in Coorg and other Malnad regions.

12 Manasa Sarovara

Manasa Sarovara is one of the greatest movies by Puttanna Kangal. Songs, location, acting, story, everything is amazing. This movie has to be in the top ten list of the best movies of all time.

This movie is based on the tragedy of Puttanna Kangal's own life. The songs are beautiful, and the storyline is touching.

One of the notable movies of Kannada cinema.

13 Ugramm

Solid, entertaining movie, simply awesome.

Awesome action movie in Sandalwood history.

The tight screenplay and impressive background score make this movie stand among the all-time greats.

14 My Autograph

It reminds us of our olden days. Thanks to Kiccha Sudeep for bringing back our old days.

15 Vishnuvardhana

Awesome twists and entertaining.

It is a film that remembers the name of Vishnuvardhana. Super film.

KICCHA is a very good actor and talented hero, singer, director, painter, captain, batsman, and stylish man.

16 Pancharangi

I like this movie because I like the place and the way the hero speaks Kannada words.

Most of the people didn't get what's there in this movie. But this is extremely good. Yograj's best movie. Best movie in the world. Small concept. Great film. Didn't get bored even for a second. Vote if you like it. Ee movie na nodi artha madkolakku ond talent beku!

17 Veera Madakari
18 Mussanje Maathu
19 Gooly

Its an epic movie! Best movie of all time

20 Mayura

Starred Raj Kumar, Vajramuni, Srinath, Manjula - a film about Karnataka kingdom of Kadambas, a Royal family of kings... An history film about Mayura varma, the Karnataka's first king...

No other historic movies in the world can match to this movie.
Saidappa Bhajantri

21 Kasturi Nivasa

Really superb Raj kumar acting..which I never see from any body

22 Ondu Muttina Kathe
23 Bhakta Prahlada

What a movie... Enjoy it even today

24 Googly

The rise of YASH! Today's superstar. Expected it to be in the top ten. Great entertainer. Kannada movies regained most of its essence back due to YASH and an era that's following.

Googly is a nice picture. I saw it in the year 2013 and liked it very much. The songs of Googly are nice.

Very entertaining movie. Yash Sir's acting is superb. This film should take the number 1 position, and Yash should be the number 1 actor in Sandalwood.

25 Gaja

It's a superhit movie in the Kannada film industry. I really liked the movie, and it's really superb.

Superb! Fantastic, marvelous, awesome movie. Sakkatt from all angles.
