Veera Madakari (English: Brave Madakari) is a 2009 Kannada action film directed by Sudeep featuring Sudeep, Ragini Dwivedi in the lead roles. The film features background score and soundtrack composed by M. M. Keeravani and Produced by Dinesh Gandhi. The film released on 20 March 2009.[2] This film is remake of Telugu blockbuster Vikramarkudu.[3] The interval fight sequence of this movie was spoofed in the climax of 2015 Kannada movie Ram-Leela.


The story of Veera Madakari revolves around Muttati Sathyaraju (Sudeep), a small-time conman, who is in love with Neeraja (Ragini Dwivedi). Madakari (also played by Sudeep), an honest police officer who is murdered by the villain, Babjee (Gopinath Bhat), his brother Titla and his son Munna (Arun Sagar). After Madakari's death, Sathyaraju takes on Madakari's identity and takes revenge on the villains in the small village of Devgarh terrorised by Babjee.



Actor-director Sudeep is well known for making successful remakes, especially from Telugu language box-office hits. Sudeep in the film casts himself in two different roles and has also given his voice to some songs. The film, as a remake of Vikramarkudu, successfully maintains the original script of its Telugu counterpart.[4]

The reviews of the film are favorable regarding the rendition of songs, choreography and the dual role of the protagonist but the film suffers because of its long duration and its sluggish pace in the first half of the movie. Sudeep excels more as an actor rather than a film director. Ragini as a debutante is imposing.[7] Sudeep does justice to his dual role, so does Tennis Krishna. Dharma is impressive in the sentimental role. Camera work and the action scenes of the movie are worth commenting.[8] chitraloka [9]
