Went to the #Kantara premier trusting The Director @shetty_rishab but came out as a die hard Fan of "The Actor" Rishab. That last 15-20 mins had one of the best performances ever by an Indian Actor. Come on Kannadigas and Namma Tuluvas let's make this Masterpiece a Blockbuster pic.twitter.com/Tzske7gDng

#Kantara is entertaining from start to finish. @shetty_rishab shines as both the director as well as the actor and puts forth a career best display in both roles. The first half builds the world, establishes character motivations and the second half is a (1/2)

Loved the Kannada film #Kantara , the writing is very rooted and powerful . Take a bow @shetty_rishab (Award-winning performance in the climax 🔥🔥PS: He is also the dir of the film). The production value and action sequences are lit, superb work by the technical team. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
