    Those familiar with Kannada films of the 1980s and 1990s will be familiar with the name Gokul Films. This firm was one of the biggest film distributors in Kannada and ventured into film production also. They distributed some 80 films and produced five of them including Khiladi Gandu, Kodagina Cauvery and Love Triangle. The company started film distribution with Haalunda Tavaru and went on to distribute films like Yama Kinkara, Gadibidi Ganda and dozens of others. The firm is run by Gokul Raj and his brothers Suresh and Balaram. They however ceased their business in 1999-2000.

    Last year, Gokul Films surprised everyone by making a return to film distribution. In a high profile return they released Rajinikanth starrer Lingaa and Vikram starrer I, both Tamil films in Karnataka. Now they have made their reentry into Kannada films after a gap of 16 years. They are distributing Sudeep's Ranna, one of the most expected films of the year. Gokul Films in their new innings are planning to release only big films or very good films which they feel would be big at the box office. In the days to come Gokul Films are readying to release many big Kannada films.
