An experimental film that was well appreciated by Kannada cine-goers, Chowka was the first to experiment with five music directors, lyricists and writers.
In keeping with the number 5, Chowka is set in 5 different time periods and places in Karnataka. All the main characters meet in the central jail for crimes they didn’t commit but were set up for. Their loves and lives leading up to their present situation are captured beautifully as they attempt to track a better future.
Darshan makes an extended cameo appearance for which he received much praise.
