Is Kantara an overhyped movie?
Kantara is a recently released Kannada movie written and directed by Rishav Shetty who has also acted in the lead role.
The story of this movie progresses in three timelines - 1847, 1970 and 1990. It begins with a wealthy king seeking peace and ends with a conflict between man and nature.
This movie was made with a budget of Rs 16 crores and has grossed Rs 400 crores worldwide so far.
After KGF, no other Kannada movie has been discussed so much.
Kantara is not a particularly brilliant film, but it is an important contribution to the growth of the Kannada cinema industry.
