Kantara Movie Story: A king seeking peace wanders into the forest and one day comes across a deity in the form of a rock and reaches an agreement with the people who worshipped God to let him take the rock with him. In return, he agrees to give the forest dwellers thousands of acres of land and promises that he will never claim the land to be his in future. However, when he passes away, his descendants are blinded by the worth that land holds and tries to take control of it again. What follows after that forms the core of this story.
Kantara Movie Review
Kantara is an excellent film, the kind of movie that you rarely see pop out in today’s world. There is heavy usage of myth, folklore and regional sentiments in the film. All these elements work wonderfully in favour of this movie. Rishab Shetty as a director, is phenomenal. He has managed to cultivate a film that would have obviously required a lot of research and precise work to map it onto the screens.
The movie is a cinematic brilliance and absolutely deserves to be watched in a theatre. The movie has everything from great sound effects and breathtaking action scenes to beautiful folklore-inspired sequences. Kantara is shot wonderfully and really captures that part of India that most of India itself is ignorant of or tends to ignore.
The cherry on the cake in Kantara is its phenomenally executed climax. You know what they say, a movie is as good as its ending. Kantara won’t let you flinch for even a single second during its highly engaging climax. Rishab Shetty as an actor, pulls off a great display of acting in the climax. Even though he is brilliant throughout the film, the climax is so powerful and unique that it stays with you for a long time.
Personally, I’m not a fan of Indian films based on myth and folklore, but surprisingly I was charmed by the effects of Kantara and now highly recommend it to everyone. This one is for the theatres. So, don’t wait and watch it on the big screen as soon as possible.
