The action-thriller is written and directed by Tharun Sudhir. The film marks his second directorial after Chowka (2017). Produced by Umapathy Srinivasa Gowda under the banner of Umapathy Films, Roberrt released in theatres on March 11.
According to the streaming platform, the film “centres on the life of Raghava (played by Darshan) who lives with his son Arjun in Lucknow and works as a cook at a South Indian catering service. Raghava is an obedient, god-fearing and peace-loving person while his son is the complete opposite of his father – vengeful and obstinate. Their polar opposite personalities become the centre of all the action in the film, taking the narrative forward. The father-son duo is living peacefully until Arjun’s vindictiveness gets him in trouble with a powerful gangster. Raghava is then forced to take on his original avatar to protect his son.”
The film also stars Jagapathi Babu, Ravi Kishan, Vinod Prabhakar and debutant Asha Bhat in key roles. The film’s technical crew consist of Arjun Janya and V Harikrishna as music composers, Sudhakar S Raj as the cinematographer and KM Prakash as the editor.
Speaking about the film, Darshan said that viewers would see three avatars of his character – a gangster, a faithful friend, and a good father.
According to a report by The Indian Express, despite the prevailing Covid-19 situation, Roberrt managed to draw big crowds to theatres. The film’s popularity was boosted by the Karnataka government’s permission of 100% seating capacity at theatres. The report stated that the film earned more than Rs 40 crore within three days of its release.
