The traditional Daivaradhane and Bhoota Kola legacy (traditional dance forms) are brought to existence in a two-and-a-half-hour-long movie.

Kantara starts offevolved in the 18th century with a king giving a bit of land to the villagers in exchange for peace and joy.

twenty years later, forest officer Murali (Kishore) wants to put an give up to the superstitious rituals and store the woodland from the villagers.

Shiva (Rishab Shetty), a hot-headed henchman, stands up for the complete village. Meanwhile, Leela (Sapthami Gowda) is appointed as a forest guard, but she is torn between her work and her ideals.

Will she take a stand? Is Murali the real villain? What does landlord Devendra Suttur (Achyuth Kumar) have in mind when he helps the villagers?

Apart from writing and directing the movie, Rishab Shetty has also performed the lead function in Kantara, and as an audience,

director and actor.Kantara begins off evolved off on a promising notice and the way Rishab establishes the characters is what sticks out in the crowd.

Murali and Shiva are at loggerheads with every different and their rivalry keeps us hooked, expecting a big showdown. And the movie doesn’t disappoint.

The story focuses on Shiva and Murali intentionally only to spring a surprise when we get to know the intentions of Devendra Suttur.
