Rustum is a 2019 Indian Kannada-language action film directed by Ravi Varma in his directorial debut.[1][2] It was produced by Jayanna and Bhogendra under the banner of Jayanna Combines. The film features Shiva Rajkumar,[3][4] Vivek Oberoi,[5] Shraddha Srinath,[6][7] Rachita Ram and Mayuri Kyatari in the lead roles. The film marks Oberoi's debut in Kannada cinema.

The movie was the Kannada debut of Vivek Oberoi , J. Mahendran and Harish Uthaman.This is the first Kannada movie to be set in Bihar for a large part of the movie. The movie was also noted to have a large portion of the second half of the movie in Hindi.[8] A sequel to the movie was announced after the movie became a success.[9]


The story revolves around a super cop who is sincere, brave and deadly. He is on a mission to end nexus of the organ trading mafia across the country and to take revenge for the brutal murder of his close friend.[10] The film begins with an honest IAS officer trying to unearth a massive criminal operation, where he ends up in a dead end when he meets the Home Minister's son and team who want him finished. His parents and wife, who are seeking justice, find help in their new neighbour Abhishek who is always in the right place at the right time. The narrative, which begins on a slow note, picks up pace towards the interval. One gets to know the identity of Abhishek in a scene that seems to be a tribute to some cult Abhishek Bhargav (Shiva Rajkumar) films. From there, the story shifts to Bihar and one gets to piece together the jigsaw puzzle.[11]



Vivek Oberoi lent the voice himself.[14]
