The movie industry is an extremely merciless ground for business. A small mistake and you could end with a loss of crores of rupees. A number of Kannada movies have also met the same fate. They have been failures at the box-office but the content the movie carried was impressive. The reasons for their failure could be pointed out to many factors but at the end of the day, they remain as movies worth watching.

Here are 12 such Kannada Movies:

1. Ulidavaru Kandanthe

Released ahead of its time, this Rakshit Shetty directorial surely missed the target at the box-office. The screenplay was extremely new to the Kannada audience and hence, the movie received mixed reviews. However, to date, this movie remains one of the best films made in Sandalwood.

2. Paramaathma

Yograj Bhat and Puneeth Rajkumar combination promised a good time for the fans. However, this flick belonged to a less-trodden genre and hence, many were left unsatisfied. The dialogues, catchy songs, neat entertainment, and an unpredictable climax still makes this flick worth watching.
