- Kranti’s rights acquired by Amazon Prime
- To be released by mid-march on OTT
- The movie crossed 100 crore mark in just 4 days of its release.
Kranti, the first movie by Challenging Star Darshan in two years to be released in theatres, is directly competing with Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathan for the top spot at the box office. According to recent rumours, the movie will debut on the OTT service Amazon Prime in mid-March. It is safe to assume that Kranti will be available on the platform by mid-March at the latest as the Kannada superstar had stated in a media interaction that the movie will only go to OTT after 45 days of its theatrical premiere. The movie was initially announced as a pan-Indian endeavour, but in the weeks leading up to its release, Darshan made it clear that he had actually made a Kannada film and that he would exclusively market it in Karnataka and to the fans who had shown him so much support over the years. However, Kranti will also be dubbed and released in Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam, and Tamil.

Produced by B. Suresha and Shylaja Nag, the film is written and directed by V. Harikrishna. Prakash Karinja edited the motion picture. A. Karunakar is the name behind the stunning cinematography in this film. Under the auspices of Media House Studio, the movie is distributed. The actor works with the same crew from his previous film Yajamana again, including Shylaja Nag, B Suresha, and composer-director V Harikrishna. Rachita Ram, Samyuktha Hornad, Vainidhi Jagadish, and Sadhu Kokila are also featured in Kranti, which also has Ravichandran and Sumalatha in significant parts.
Kranti, as its name suggests, is a film about a revolution with education as its central topic. Darshan portrays an NRI who travels back to India to help his old school, a Kannada-medium institution.
On IMDb, this movie received a 7.6 out of 10 rating, meaning that more than 60 per cent of viewers thought it was good. The film, which generated a thunderous reaction from people even before its release, is still making the box-office cash registers counting pages. The mass commercial entertainer, which premiered in theatres on Republic Day (January 26), is apparently the newest member of the 100 crore club. If the sources are to be believed the commercial entertainment product has officially surpassed a gross income of Rs 100 crore. This figure includes revenue from the sale of satellite and digital rights as well as revenue from the theatre industry.
