Director: Udaya Prakash HS
Cast: Ganesh, Deepika Kamaiah
Borrowing the title from the 1980s Shankar Nag film, the Ganesh starrer Auto Raja was a let-down.

Sweety Nanna Jodi
Director: Vijayalakshmi Singh
Cast: Aditya, Radhika Kumaraswamy
Radhika Kumaraswamy made a comeback with this film.

Director: Ayyappa P Sharma
Cast: Malashri, Komal Kumar, Rahul Dev, Ashish Vidyarthi
Malashri’s action film was a colossal dud.
At a time when Kannada films and Indian cinema in general is trying to raise the bar in screenplay and quality of production, Veera was a mindless action film made exclusively to please Malashri’s fans who love that kind of action.
