Munirathna Kurukshetra is an Indian Kannada-language epic historical war film of 2019, written by J. K. Bharavi and directed by Naganna. In the epic poem Gadhayuddha by Ranna, which itself is based on the Indian epic Mahabharata, this movie is based.
The film starts with Pandavas and Kauravas returning after their training and education from their teacher Dronacharya. Kauravas’ animosity with Pandavas makes paths to the humiliation of Pandavas and the disrobing of Draupadi by Kauravas in Dice Game. Finally, all the circumstances leading to the Great War in Mahabharata Kurukshetra War. On 9 August 2019 across more than 1000 screens, the film was released making it the widest release for any Kannada film alongside dubbed Telugu version. It is also released in Hindi, Malayalam and Tamil languages.
A news report in late-2018 speculated that the film would be released on February 2019. But a delay caused the release date to be pushed to 5 April, targeting a Ugadi release. After actor Nikhil Kumar announced his participation in the 2019 Indian general elections, the release date was further postponed as promotion of a candidate is prohibited during the elections. Producer Munirathna remarked, “The film is made in both 2D and 3D and it has got delayed due to the extensive graphics. Now, we are ready with the product and as planned, I am very keen to release this in April first week.
But since Nikhil is part of our film, if I want to go ahead with the planned release date, I will have to lose out the entire Mysuru region.” The film was later slated to be released on 2 August but pushed back by another week to avoid a clash in screen allotment with another multi-language release Saaho.
Though the movie received a mostly positive response, few episodes and dialogues were reported to be inspired by the 1977 Telugu movie Daana Veera Karna
