Ayya is a 2005 Kannada film directed by Om Prakash Rao, starring Darshan Thoogudeep and Rakshitha. Darshan plays the role of a brave police officer prepared to go any lengths to control crime in the city. The background music and soundtrack has been scored by V. Ravichandran. The movie is loosely based on the 2003 Tamil movie Saamy.


The dialogue "Naan convent alli odi police agiddalla. Corporation school alli odi police aagiddu" (Means, "I have not become a police officer by studying in convent, I am a police officer who studied in corporation school"), became very popular in the whole of Karnataka and could be heard from Darshan's fans for many days. The film has some very exciting scenes such as the one where the police commissioner describes Ayya as a one-man army, who is more powerful than the nuclear bomb (Pokhran-II) invented by Dr. Abdul Kalam. The film also a scene where he intelligently kills some of the villains showing that Ayya is not only a brave police officer, but also a very very intelligent and brainy person.
