With “Dandupalya 3” it will be curtains on the franchise, a series which has received much acclaim in both Kannada and Telugu. Directed by Shrinivas Raju, the earlier two films in the series were commercially very successful.

The series had to be made because according to the director, the story and the concept were so extensive that it could not be made in one film. Right from the beginning, it was clear that the story could not be told in one movie and therefore it was decided to make it in three parts. Hence two films were announced before the beginning of the first film and the shooting of the second and the third editions was conducted almost simultaneously.

'Dandupalya 3' — Excellent reviews

The series has been acclaimed, and the director is delighted to see the reaction from the audiences. The making of the series was not without hiccups and during the shooting of "Dandupalya 2," the producers experienced a lot of financial difficulties.

Thankfully all that is behind and the film‘s shooting has concluded. The film features Pooja Gandhi, Makrand Deshpande, Ravi Kale, Kari Subbu, Petrol Prasanna, and Ravishankar.

Box-office success

The first part of the film was released in 2012, and it was a riveting story of a notorious gang and was a stupendous success at the Box-Office.

As mentioned, the third part was started along with the shooting of the second part. The director had planned to release the third part as soon as possible immediately after the release of the second part.

Public review

Based loosely on the criminal dacoit gang from Dandupalya, the third version takes off from where the second part ended.

Most of the principal cast takes on from the prequel and includes characters played by P. Ravishankar, Makarand Deshpande, Sanjjanaa, Ravi Kale and Petrol Prasanna.

Even though Hindi movie "Raid" starring Ajay Devgn has released today, this Kannada movie is expected to do exceptionally well in Karnataka, particularly, in Bangalore. The box-office collections will be updated here as soon as they are available.
