Shiva is a henchman who does small jobs for Devendra Suttooru, a landlord. They live in a tribal hamlet. Due to a troubled past, Shiva stays away from Bhoota Kola and Daivaradhane's legacy. Forest officer Murali enters the village, and in a situation, Shiva locks horns with Murali. During the Bhoota Kola festival, Shiva was asked to perform the rituals, and he denied it, as he and his mother were still suffering when the attended the festival and followed the rituals when he was a child. Why did Shiva refuse? Who is Murali? Why did Shiva and Murali fight? The rest of the film deals with these.

Star Performance

Rishab played a dual role as the father and son and did his best. Kishore did an excellent job, and his look is also a plus point. Achyuth Kumar and Saptami Gowda are good in the given roles. Praveen and Pramod did a decent job.


The story has nothing unique, but all it has is in the making. A simple story is shown in a mind-blowing way with effortless performances. Rishab is really a show stealer. His dialogues and body language are superb, and his pitching tone is excellent. The main hero of the film is the cinematographer Arvind. The production design is impressive and the background shades are changed frequently to match the story’s flow. The music is fantastic as usual. A few comedy scenes worked out, and the action scenes are incredibly choreographed.

What’s There?

  • The performances of the stars are excellent
  • The screenplay is racy
  • The visuals are stunning and the music fits well

What’s Not There?

  • The story is a bit predictable


Kantara is a wonderful watch not only for Rishab’s fans, but the action movie lovers. If you want to try a new film with good performances, you can try this!
