Accident is a 2008 Indian Kannada language thriller film directed by and starring Ramesh Aravind, and based on the 1969 French film Z. Rekha Vedavyas appears in a pivotal role. The supporting cast features Pooja Gandhi, Thilak Shekar and Mohan.

Synopsis[edit]

The movie is a contemporary take on the life of a couple and their journey through time and how they have to fight the eternal battle of good over evil and how they win with support from a set of dear friends. The protagonist of the film is Sawanth (acted by Ramesh Aravind), a radio jockey. His wife is a teacher and a social worker. On returning from a three week foreign trip, he is shocked to discover that his wife and her co-worker had died in an accident. Sawanth cannot convince himself this is merely an accident and commences an investigation. It is one of the most critically acclaimed films of the decade in Kannada cinema.

Special notes[edit]

The movie is produced by Vishishta Productions, which is headed by Mr Raghunath G. This is the third directorial venture of actor-director Ramesh Aravind who had experimented with this film as he had drifted away from his usual genre of comedy films. Rekha Vedavyas had an important role in this film and critics claim that this was her best performance to date. Chocolate hero Tilak played an pivotal role and his performance was also noticed. Pooja Gandhi added star value and contributed to the glamour quotient of the film. Rajendra Karanth excelled in the role of a corrupt minister. Mahesh Kumar played the role of a villain in the film, his performance deserves special mention. Abhishek Venkteshwar, who played Mahesh's assistant (junior artist) in the film, later went ahead to do a lot of amateur/short films. Kiran (Ramesh Aravind's assisatant) played another role in the film.
