Bara (Kannada: ಬರ English: Drought) is a 1982 Kannada film directed and produced by M. S. Sathyu. It is based on the story written by U. R. Ananthamurthy.[1] The film starred Ananth Nag, C. R. Simha and Loveleen Madhu in lead roles. The film won many laurels upon release including the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Kannada for its script of an incisive analysis of the socio-political situation in a drought affected district.[2] The film went on floors in 1980 and made its theatrical release in 1982. The Hindi version of the film Sookha was released in 1983. However, unlike the Kannada version, the film couldn't get a theatrical release, and was shown on Doordarshan.[3]
