The climax scene
Interestingly, Hrithik had some special honor for the climax fight sequence of the film, which has been appreciated for its tone, cinematography, and intensity. “The peak climax transformation gave me goosebumps. Respect & kudos to the team,” wrote Hrithik.
Recently, RRR director SS Rajamouli spoke about Kantara and said that one doesn’t need a big-scale film to do big numbers. “Big budgets are something… and suddenly Kantara comes in and looks at the numbers it is making. Suddenly, you do not need a big-scale film to do big numbers. Even a small film like Kantara can do that,” the filmmaker said, talking to Film Companion.
He continued, “As audience it is exciting, but as filmmakers, we need to go back and check what we are doing.”
Kantara was released in Kannada and Hindi on 30th September and 14th October respectively. The film is written, directed, and starred by Rishab Shetty. Produced by Vijay Kiragandur under Hombale Films, the film also features Sapthami Gowda and Kishore Kumar G in pivotal roles. The Hindi version gave tough competition to several Bollywood releases over the weeks. Several celebrities including Prabhas, Dhanush, Anushka Shetty, Siddhant Chaturvedi, and Shilpa Shetty have heaped praise on the film.
