Ranganayaki is a Kannada-language film that is directed by Dayal Padmanabhan. It tells the tale of a happy-go-lucky teacher, who is also the titular character of the film, who is on the verge of starting a new life with a fellow educator from the same institution who she sees as the love of her life. As things seemingly start to take a turn for the better for her, an unexpected traumatic and horrific event temporarily puts a wrench in her plans for the future.

However, the event in question only motivates her to fight back against the people who brought her the trauma. But in order to do so, she will have to overcome several societal obstacles. Ranganayaki is about passion and grit and serves as a guide for victims of sexual assault.

This film has an impressive cast list, the members of whom serve their individual functions effectively and in the most poignant way. Several Ranganayaki movie reviews online have praised the drama for its compelling plot and impactful dialogues, as well as its music score.

Ranganayaki movie plot

Ranganayaki (Prabhudeva) is a happy-go-lucky educator who lives life to the fullest, one day at a time. The primary romantic angle involves her and her partner, Mahadev, who also teaches at the same educational institution. Sparks fly all over and love is in the air, and Ranganayaki is planning to start a new life with Mahadev in the middle of it all while planning a separation from her current husband, Krishnamurthy. But, as destiny had it, she became subjected to a horrific event of sexual assault by people she never imagined would bring her trauma.

However, in spite of preparing and succumbing to the inevitable victim-shaming, she decides to plan to bring her perpetrators to justice. In a wholesome turn of events, she finds an ally in Krishnamurthy while going through the ordeal. Thus begins her quest for revenge and justice, an endeavor that also has hurdles such as the social stigma surrounding the nature of the crime she has been a victim of and being a virgin.

In a parallel story, we meet a colleague of our protagonist, Jhansi (Lasya), who too has been a victim of sexual violence. But, unlike Ranganayaki, she succumbs to the horror of it all by taking a drastic step. This incident, which is reminiscent of the real-life 2012 case of Nirbhaya, motivates Ranganayaki to go full throttle.
