Hebbuli (English: strong ferocious Tiger) is a 2017 Kannada action film directed by S. Krishna.[3] The film features Sudeep and V. Ravichandran, teaming up for the second time after Maanikya (2014).It was dubbed into Hindi as same name under goldmine telefilm ptv ltd.[4] Amala Paul, making her debut in Kannada cinema, in the lead roles.[5]

Produced by SRV Productions, the film has cinematography by A. Karunakar. The soundtrack and film score are composed by Arjun Janya. The principal photography commenced in Bangalore mid June 2016, continuing in Hyderabad, Jammu-Kashmir and Iceland.


The story begins with Captain Ram ( Sudeep ) performing a rescue operation rescuing 3 doctors including Dr. Nandini (Amala paul). Nandini falls in love with him but is not able to express it. Meanwhile, another doctor named Harish (Chikkanna) has a crush on Nandini. One night Ram receives a letter stating his brother IAS officer Krishnamurthy ( Ravichandran ) is dead. He arrives at bangalore and then searches for clues because the view was of suicide but Ram believes it is a murder. He is right and how he solves the case and kills his brother's killers is the epic climax of this epic movie.




After having roped in Sudeep to play the protagonist, director cast P. Ravi Shankar to play a negative role opposite Sudeep. Since the plot required a parallel male lead to play the brother role to Sudeep, director approached actor V. Ravichandran to play the character and finalized him. Actress Amala Paul who was on the lookout for a fresh script in Kannada was signed on to play the female lead role. For the other antagonist roles, Sampath Raj, Kabir Duhan Singh and finally Ravi Kishan were selected.[6]


The film released on 23 February 2017 in over 500 screens across the country, making it the Kannada cinema's biggest ever release.[7]
