Olave Jeevana Lekkachaara! (Kannada: ಒಲವೇ ಜೀವನ ಲೆಕ್ಕಾಚಾರ!) is a 2009 Indian Kannada language film directed by Nagathihalli Chandrashekhar. The film starred Srinagara Kitty and Radhika Pandit in lead roles. Chandrashekhar has brilliantly handled the subject in the film which is laced with humour and sarcasm. It's a sentimental family entertainer, with a message for all. With excellent control over the script and neat narration, Nagathihalli has presented his point of view based on his short story Bhoomi Gundagide.
The story revolves around Balu (Srinagara Kitty), who comes to Halekote village, falls in love with Rukmini (Radhika Pandit), but is brainwashed by a college lecturer (Rangayana Raghu). The lecturer is a self-made revolutionary, who infuses negative thoughts about life and marriage. Balu leaves Rukmini, comes back to Bangalore, becomes a lecturer and imposes the same theme: rich should become poor; poor should become rich. He changes his heart after seeing the positive sides of family life and decides to return to Rukmini. But the developments give him a shock of his life.
The music of the film was composed by Mano Murthy.
