This 2022 Indian Kannada-language action thriller movie is the directorial venture of Rishab Shetty, who also happens to be the writer. Production has been carried out under the banner of Hombale Films by Vijay Kiragandur. The movie was supposed to release on OTT much earlier, but now the date of OTT release has been revealed. Amazon Prime has acquired the movie’s rights, for a speculated amount of Rs 150 crores and will release on November 24.
Kantara’s Unstoppable Theatrical Run
Kantara continues to garner praise from all corners of the country. It has been running in theatres for over a month, released on September 30th, yet the movie’s craze refuses to die. People continue to flock to theatres to watch this movie. Owing to this, the makers of the movie have decided to push back its OTT release. It is because of the movie’s success in theatres. Earlier, the picture was supposed to release on OTT on November 18th, but now that date has been postponed to the end of November. The movie continues to rake in impressive numbers at the box office.
The movie was produced on a modest budget and is the latest cinematic phenomenon to emerge from Sandalwood. According to reports, the movie has grossed a jaw-dropping Rs 300 crores in India. Worldwide collections stand at Rs 343 crores after its 38-day run in theatres.
The movie has performed exceedingly well in the Hindi belt as well. Within 3 weeks, the movie minted a little more than Rs 60 crores at the ticket booth. The availability of the movie in all 4 South Indian languages has been advantageous in increasing its audiences. With all this box office success, it is little wonder that the movie makers have decided to push its OTT date. Technically, when a movie is doing well in theatres, makers push back OTT dates because they want to milk ticket sales as much as possible. This also seems to be the case for Kantara, as the makers have decided to push back the dates. The dates in question aren’t even certain. When the end of November, this movie might launch on OTT, is anyone’s guess.
The storyline is very interesting. It is a tale of two cultures – Kembla and Bootha Kola. A human-nature conflict occurs when we are introduced to Shiva, a rebel who defends his village and nature. A sudden death leads to war between villagers and evil forces. Will Shiva be able to restore peace in the village? That is anyone’s guess.
