Here is an attempted filmography of Kannada actor Rajkumar, assembled from various sources. Many gaps remain. I'll be grateful for help in filling them. The entry on Rajkumar in the 'Encyclopaedia of Indian Films.' ----------------------------------------------------------------- Rajkumar (b. 1929) ----------------------------------------------------------------- Kannada superstar born in Gajanur, Karnataka; made over 200 films (25% of the industry) since the mid-50s. Child actor for Gubbi Veeranna playing Arjuna in the stage spectacular 'Kurukshetra (1924).' Broke through in R. Nagendra Rao and Subbaiah Naidu's theatre company, playing Narada in 'Bhukailasa' (repeating the role in K. Shankar's 1958 film version *1) and Ramakant in 'Ambarish.' Film debut in HLN Simha's Gubbi-Karnataka production based on GV Iyer's play 'Bedara Kannappa,' which established him as a mythological hero overcoming the severest tests of conscience to prove his devotion to his ideals. Formed a loose collective with GV Iyer, TV Singh-Thakore, Balakrishna, Narasimharaju, et al, the Kannada Film Artists Association, which produced one film 'Ranadheera Kantheerava.' Although the group did not survive, it became the nucleus for a Kannada film industry. His image, mainly moulded by GV Iyer, was politicized into a quest for Karnataka's cultural glory. The bulk of historicals ('Ranadheera Kantheerava,' 'Immadi Pulikeshi') and mythologicals were geared to a populist regional-chauvinist version of Karnataka's history in terms of a return to the Southern Kingdoms from the 7th century Pallava period and to the 14th century Vijayanagara Empire, focussing on Dravidian feudalism's resistance to the North Indian agrarian systems. In his films, Rajkumar often absents himself as he weaves through the bewilderingly complex narrative and kinship structures toward the final assertion of truth, unfailingly built around soliloquies expressing moral dilemmas redolent with political wish-fulfilment. Expanded the medium from the early mythologicals into the contemporary with 'Bangarada Manushya.' His persona takes upon himself all the burdens, which in Tamil DMK films would be distributed across several figures. His effectiveness is illustrated by the way he modulates his performances from the historical to the mythological ('Sri Kannika Parameswari Kathe'), from contemporary melodrama ('Karulina Kare') to James Bond thrillers ('Goadalli CID 999' and his Dorairaj-Bhagwan films). Retired after making 200 films to become a producer promoting his sons, Shivraj Kumar (introduced as hero in Singeetham Srinivasa Rao's "Ananda,' 1986) and Raghavendra Rajkumar. Shyamsundar Kulkarni published a monograph 'Dr. Rajkumar' (1988) and P. Lankesh edited a special issue of 'Lankesh Patrike,' ('Innooru Chitragala Raj', July 1988), devoted to the star. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Filmography The entries are in chronological order of release in Bangalore, to the extent possible.

Udayashankar Mus: Upendrakumar Note: There appears to have been a trilingual film 'Tenali Ramakrishna' made in 1956, with male actors being different in the Telugu, Tamil, and Kannada versions. Not included in the list above. In addition, there is some doubt whether 'Annapurna' (1962) is a Rajkumar film. This one is included above (#52). Also, it is not clear that 'Natasarvabhauma' be counted as a film. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Sources: Ashish Rajadhyaksha (ed).
