In the story of Kantara, there’s a ripple when we see a battle of ego swirling along tradition & culture of the land. The soul of the story is on human & nature conflict in which Shiva is the rebellion who works against nature.
There are intense conflicts in which he indulges. In the end, there’s a much awaiting loop that leads to war b/w the villagers & the evil forces. If Shiva, the protagonist of the film can reinstate peace & harmony in the village is something for you to unveil in the movie.
The film has a predictable storyline that’s embellished w/ technical brilliance which makes the experience unique. The director shines as himself as well as the protagonist. The cinematography of Kantara pulls the audience into the film & makes you a part of it.
The 1st half of the film has a very engaging storyline & also has apt comedy w/ quirky one-liners that are in coastal dialect. The 2nd half delves deep into the actual story of culture & tradition which has been blended w/ a little bit of mystery.
The biggest take away from the film is the pre-climax & climax which is conceived & performed to perfection. The performance of Rishab Shetty in the last 20 mins is chilling as he comes from the coastal region. The mannerisms have also come out effortlessly on the screen. The film shows the hidden aggressive side of Rishab as an actor.
