If you think Kantara is just about supernatural powers and it's repercussions, I'm sorry to say.. you have missed a lot more that it did offer to make you feel about. Had it be like that.. there would not be any sufferings on the people's side.. the cop would have not understood where he went wrong.. the main protagonist through which the deity appears in the end would have never happened as he was the one after killing the same God the whole time. So many thing to watch and feel about the tribal life and their beliefs. Obviously, it's not everyone's piece of cake. Oh yes, a wide range of people from all over the art and cinema fraternity could able to recognise the gem inside SDM and hyped it unnecessarily, as it's no big deal for anyone living that life daily and couldn't differentiate the cinematic aspect of any fine cinema. Believe me, almost all Academy flicks are hell bore to the core for entertaining masses, yet they have their own charisma and place amongst all. And yes, not a single one I've watched did fail to amaze me!

Being said that, in art.. there can be hundreds of views/ perspectives on any subject and it surely doesn't have to coincide with others sitting just beside us watching the same piece. It all depends on the way you perceive it. You are absolutely right defining it in your ways just like the rest gave their 'insights and feel' about this piece (though they have tried to make it less art and more entertainment). Nothing can be denied!!

@Dileep_kumar Even many North/ East Indian movies are not everyone's favourite. Being from a region has got no meaning on how you perceive something made with heavy detailing and still feel disconnected to that. To each his own! grinning

Kannada best language to watch. Original script dialogues worth it. Hindi translation doesn't even come close to the original. Watched both kannada n Hindi.

Are they still playing that song "varaha roopam" as court ordered to stop using it due to the copyright infringement.

Yeah, but the Original language is available right?

As usual, Hindi will be released later.

Those who really want to watch for its essence, better watch the original audio with English subtitles.. it's quite good. And it's a simple movie (with a good twist). You need to get connected with the culture to feel the depth. fire raised_hands💯

No, they have changed it pensive pensive. It was the only song I played on a loop for almost 2 months. I just hope that the original song will be added again 🤞.

It's a different version now. Lyrics are same, but there is difference in music.
Honestly, I am not liking this as I was kinda addicted to that song.

Honestly, that only thing gave me chill after the similar scene in the beginning, and it soothes as well.. don't want to check the new one now. I have the original old one.. that'd be more than enough! Seriously!!!

Yeah bro it was really the essense of the movie I liked it too pretty much frankly I feel it's better than the orignal "navrasam" the band version. They should have given the credits to original creaters cause anyone can tell it's not inspired but copied.

That was really the part of the movie who have seen it with the orignal will surely feel the difference I was expecting the directors will settle it out of court & really the original creators deserve it. But recent updates doesn't make it look ike that.

I would suggest to listen "navarasam vs varaha roopam".

I prefer watching all South Indian movies with subtitles because as you said essence, emotions and feel of the scenes is always lost in other language dubbing. 

In 2005, I saw Korean movie My Sassy Girl without any subtitles aid as I downloaded it from torrents by mistake. It was such an intense romantic drama that I really got teary eyes in the end after watching that movie without knowing any word they said. Even music of I beleive song in background was so ultimate that I kept whistling it for days. I know love stories have no logic, but after watching some powerful movies, one can feel good about their ownselves 😍

Hope Kantara is also like that.

Kantara is "culture" based. It's whole theme is around the ancient culture of those "mulnivasi" and their faith. It's visuals take you through rollercoaster rides of joy, hysterical laughters, pain, agonies and love. The makers and actors left no stone unturned trying to make every single scene worth it, sometimes it is too intense too.. many of those. And those boring scenes (as per many) has got good connection with the culture of that time, even today in many parts it's being followed religiously. It's better to be watched with good headphones/ sound systems (7.1 surround preferred) to feel it in the heart. 😍

Promotions? Which promotions??
It's the word of mouth that's brought it to this place.

Kantara created history (mainly coz of climax) because for most of the common normal audience it's something new never witnessed act, but not for me who is aware of such supernatural phenomena that's why there was no fun for me, e.g for foreigners slumdog millionaire was epic but for we Indians nothing extraordinary, same goes with Kantara audience who are unaware of such practice and spiritual powers went crazy @bdatta1981 @chiraggyl170 @Ash-D @B3A5T @superdimes @deb3l @MSDfan @saucap @amey_dev143 @Dileep_kumar right Dileep too much hyped movie but not through promotions, it was word of mouth instead, YouTubers exaggerated reviews and timing, nowadays anything from south is making news, simple common sense and logic to prove my point distinguish between Tumbbad vs Kantara and all will find the answer. Thanks me later.

@indianboy my point is Kantara would be a good movie but not great, just coz of timing "Boycott Bollywood" Kantara earn more than what it deserves, synonyms of Quality Content and definition of Art + Entertainment = Tumbbad. You can't Dabate/Argue or Counter.

I would pick Tumbbad anyday over Kantara.. Kantara is lightyears behind Tumbbad on the "story" aspect.. But for a theatrical experience, I would pick Kantara anyday over Tumbbad.. The cultural / spiritual connect is simply unparalleled 🙏🏻

And you probably won't.. Check this - https://www.desidime.com/news/amazon-prime-vide...

I must say that the newer version of varaha roopam ( earlier one was bang on but plagiarized ) is not creating the same effect.. 😢
