Usire (transl. From the heart) is a 2001 Indian Kannada-language romance drama film directed by Prabhu Solomon. The film stars V. Ravichandran along with Rachana Banerjee and Prakash Raj in prominent roles.[1][2]

The film is a remake of the Tamil film Bharathi Kannamma (1997), directed by Cheran. The film was produced by Rockline Venkatesh and the music was composed by Ilaiyaraaja.

The film, upon release, met with an average response at the box office.[3] Prabhu Solomon had wanted Shiva Rajkumar to play the lead role, and he lamented that miscasting Ravichandran in the leading role instead, worked against the viability of the film.[4]



All the songs are composed and scored by Ilaiyaraaja. The lyrics were written by K. Kalyan.[5]
