Kittu Puttu is a 1977 Indian Kannada comedy drama film directed by C. V. Rajendran and produced by Dwarakish. The film features Vishnuvardhan, Dwarakish, Manjula and Vaishali Kasaravalli in the lead roles. The film was widely appreciated for its songs and story upon release. The songs tuned by Rajan-Nagendra were huge hits.
The movie is based on the 1967 Tamil film Anubavi Raja Anubavi directed by K. Balachandar which was remade as Do Phool in Hindi in 1973. Kittu Puttu went on to inspire the 1993 Hindi movie Aankhen.
The dual role played by Nagesh in Tamil was reprised by Mehmood in Hindi and by Dwarakish in Kannada. Earlier, the triple role played by Nagesh in Panakkara Kudumbam was reprised by Mehmood in Hindi version (Humjoli) and by Dwarakish in Kannada version (Bhale Huduga).
