Puneeth Rajukmar’s Acting Career

 

Bettada Hoovu (1985)

Based on Shirley L. Arora's novel What then, Raman, N. Lakshminarayan's 1985 Indian Kannada-language film Bettada Hoovu was produced. It is a Parvathamma Rajkumar production, and Puneeth Rajkumar, her son, plays the principal character. Puneeth portrays Ramu, a youngster from a low-income family who enjoys reading but has to give up school in order to provide for his family. He won the National Film Award for Best Child Artist for his performance. The movie was ranked as the finest children's movie in Kannada by Deccan Herald. Three South Filmfare Awards went to the movie.

Ramu is a little child from a low-income household who lives in a hill town with his parents and two brothers. His mother works as a fruit and vegetable trader, and his father runs errands in and around the hamlet, frequently to assist the visiting visitors. His parents struggle to make ends meet. Ramu enjoys going to school and reading his books, though. Even after school, he has a bond with a healthcare professional who teaches him English. After witnessing the movie Sri Ramanjaneya Yuddha in his hometown and Kuvempu's Sri Ramayana Darshanam at a bookstore—both of which are adaptations of the Ramayana—he becomes fascinated and wants to buy the latter to read. He starts working towards it, which costs ten dollars.

Ramu's family position worsens during the off-season when visitors go home, forcing his father to relocate to the city in search of job and handing over control of the household to young Ramu. Ramu is currently compelled to quit school in order to support his family and find work. He begins performing minor tasks around the village while setting aside some of his earnings to purchase the book. He starts selling flowers to an American instructor who is researching Indian wildflowers for a book. When he gives the teacher an orchid flower, he receives ten rupees in exchange, enough money to purchase the book. When he goes to purchase the book, he changes his mind. He must choose between purchasing the book and a blanket to protect his family from the bitter winter cold. He ultimately decides to purchase the blanket, much to the delight of his family. Then, though, his hope of purchasing the book is dashed.

 

Abhi (2003)

Dinesh Babu wrote and directed the romantic comedy Abhi, which was released in 2003 in the Indian Kannada language. Starring in it are debutante Ramya and Puneeth Rajkumar. Rajkumar, a seasoned Kannada actor, sang on the soundtrack Gurukiran created for the movie. In Telugu, the movie was recreated as Abhimanyu, starring Kalyan Ram and Ramya in the same role.

Abhi is a cool dude who excels at cultural pursuits. In quest of a rented home, Bhanu's family contacts Abhi's family. They first hate each other, but as time goes on, they get closer. Bhanu's father disagrees with this because Abhi is a Hindu and Bhanu is a Muslim, so he eventually goes looking for Bhanu's lover to beat him up. Abhi disapproves of her father's actions. They start arguing with one another in college. They are stopped by Bhanu, who reveals that he is her father. They all depart for Hubli as Bhanu's father leaves the home. In Hubli, Abhi and his buddies look for Bhanu. Despite the fact that Bhanu's family is unaware that he was the lover, Abhi finds a way to talk to him. When Abhi and Bhanu embrace in front of their family, they will reveal that they were once lovers. The elderly woman in Bhanu's home encourages Abhi to go right away because the males from that home will be returning from the mosque following the prayer. But when Abhi questions why he should be afraid of them, the elderly woman replies that they'll try to murder you. When Abhi asks why, the elderly woman replies, Ask your mother. Abhi travels to Bangalore to speak with his mother about what the elderly woman said.

Abhi's mother tells him a flashback tale about the murder of his real parents. She'll also admit that she wasn't really his mother. The same tale will be told to Bhanu by her grandmother. After a few days, Bhanu chooses to abandon her relationship with him for the benefit of her family. She departs Hubli and travels to Bangalore to tell him this. He concurs with her as well. However, Bhanu's father tries to kill him since he believes that she fled to marry Abhi. After that, Abhi and Bhanu's father would fight. The elderly woman counsels Bhanu's father to stop being so nasty. Realizing his error, he permits Bhanu and Abhi to marry.

The Karnataka State Film Award for Best Actor was given to Puneeth Rajkumar for his portrayal. Ishtam Enikkishtam is the name given to the Malayalam dub of the movie.

Vamshi (2008)

Puneeth Rajkumar and Nikitha feature in the action drama movie Vamshi, which is made in India's Kannada language. Smt. Parvathamma Rajkumar is the producer, while Prakash is the director. The movie premiered on October 2, 2008.

Vamshi's backstory discloses that he is the son of Kotnal Ramanna (KR), a former crime leader who was recently assassinated by the other group commanded by a rival gangster Jayachandra. This revelation occurs after training and as he is ready to be sent to Bangalore for posting. Due to Vamshi's resentment, his parentage, and DCP Reddy's association with Jayachandra, the police interview with Vamshi was unsuccessful. Dejected, Vamshi is compelled to become KR's new squad leader and is assisted in killing Jayachandra and other adversaries by a different politician. He wanders away from his mother and his buddy Sharadha, also known as Sharu, while doing this.

Vamshi discovers the terrible background of his mother and the value, love, and compassion of those close to him after killing Jayachandra. Vamshi returns to a normal life, but his own team and the politician who supported Reddy turn against him because they want Vamshi to keep working for the syndicate. The group and Vamshi engage in combat, during which Vamshi ultimately kills the group and Reddy. Vamshi finally accepts a position as a teacher and settles down to live contentedly with Sharu and his mother.

Six songs by R P Patnaik with lyrics by Ram Narayan and V. Nagendra Prasad make up the official soundtrack. The movie was hailed as a great hit at the box office while receiving mixed reviews. The movie had a Malayalam dub.

A sincere young IAS officer named Prithvi Kumar serves as Bellary District's District Commissioner. His main goal is to end the District's continuous corruption and uphold his values of integrity and corruption-free governance. Once in office, he learns that the locals are consuming tainted water that has been contaminated by unstoppable illicit mining businesses every day. He observes that people get sick from the contaminated water and predicts that things could get really worse if people continue to drink the same water. His goal is to identify the cause of the contaminated water. He acknowledges that one of the primary causes is the intrusion of illicit mining from the Andhra Pradesh border, and he begins mercilessly seizing illegal mining operations near Bellary. As a result, Bellary begins using bribes, threats, and even intimidation while working closely with the High Command of Karnataka politics.

The soundtrack of the movie was written by Manikanth Kadri, who also scored the background music. Jayant Kaikini, K. Kalyan, and Kaviraj wrote the lyrics for the soundtrack. The film received positive reviews, enjoyed success in A centers and multiplexes, and played for 70 days in the Sagar and Menaka. It failed miserably in B and C Centers, though.
