Diggajaru is a 2001 Kannada film directed by D. Rajendra Babu and produced by Rockline Venkatesh. The film stars Umashree, Ambarish, Doddanna, and Avinash in pivotal roles. The film revolves around the story of a village's struggle against a corrupt politician who tries to take over their land. The story begins with the village head, Doddanna, who tries to protect his land from the evil intentions of the MLA, Avinash, who is backed by the underworld don, Rangayana Raghu. The MLA hatches a plan to forcefully acquire the land by threatening the villagers with consequences if they refuse to give up their property. The villagers decide to form a group to fight against the politicians' corruption and protect their land.

The protagonist of the story is Umashree, who plays the character of Diggajaru, a fearless and resolute woman who takes charge of leading the villagers. Ambarish plays the role of Dr. Vishnu, a medical practitioner who supports Diggajaru in her fight against corruption.

Through various plot twists and turns, the film shows the determination of the villagers to safeguard their land and their rights. It highlights how the powerful and corrupt politicians resort to unethical and illegal means to suppress the voice of the common people.

One of the film's strengths is the portrayal of strong female characters, which were not commonly seen in Indian cinema at the time of release. Umashree, in particular, delivers an exceptional performance as Diggajaru. The film also includes several action sequences, which are well choreographed and add to the film's overall entertainment value.

The film's soundtrack, composed by Hamsalekha, features some memorable songs, including "Yenu Karanthalu," "Nanu Nane Avalu," and "Preethi Nodaleno."

Overall, Diggajaru is a well-made film that addresses social and political issues prevalent in rural India. The film's message about standing up against corrupt politicians and defending one's rights is relevant even today. The performances of the lead actors, coupled with the action sequences and music, make it an enjoyable watch for cinema-lovers.
