Jwaalamukhi (Kannada: ಜ್ವಾಲಾಮುಖಿ; English: Volcano) is a 1985 Indian Kannada film directed by Singeetham Srinivasa Rao. The film featured Rajkumar, Gayathri, Thoogudeepa Srinivas, K. S. Ashwath and Mukhyamantri Chandru in the lead roles. The movie is based on a novel of same name by Vijay Sasanur.
The story revolves around the heroics of Jayasimha, played by Rajkumar. The story starts with an introductory scene where Jayasimha explains his resignation as a professor. Well educated, rich in values and honesty will be Jayasimha's attributes. He exposes the forgery done by mischief in the college and the favorable probe trial of that case makes him resign from the college. The mischief maker happens to be the son of the influential builder in the town, Gunasekara, played by Mukhyamantri Chandru.
Soon after leaving the professor job, he starts working for a press led by Rudraiah, played by K. S. Ashwath. He becomes successful in changing the mindset of matka mafia gang leader Ratanlal, played by Thoogudeepa Srinivas. In the meanwhile, Jayasimha falls in love with Gayathri, who plays the role of Tejaswini. The second half of the story unfolds the battle between truth/fact-finding versus influence and power of Gunasekara.
The movie marks the splendid performance of Rajkumar in the role of a fighter against injustice.
