The much-awaited trailer of Kannada filmmaker-actor Rishab Shetty’s Kantara is here and boy is it exhilarating. Kantara is Rishab’s return to the director’s chair after four years, his last being Sarkari Hiriya Prathamika Shaale. This time around, Rishab presents a story set in an eco-sensitive area and the tussle between the residents of the area and the man in charge of maintaining a balance and ensuring that man’s activities do not disturb the flora and fauna of the region.

Fans have been going ga-ga over the trailer of the film, calling it “superb”, “Thrilling”, “Goosebump-inducing”, among others. “Rishab Shetty Never Disappoint 🥰 He Allways Show Something special In Writing”, “Rishab Shetty Always comes up with the Unique and new stories. This one looks like a blockbuster for sure because his dedication, passion towards cinema is Superb”, were among some of the many comments praising the filmmaker’s presentation.


But what also stood out is that audiences are pleased to see Kishore in a pivotal role. “Happy to see Kishore getting the recognition he deserves,” wrote one. The film, produced by Hombale Films, which has Rishab, Sapthami Gowda, Pramod Shetty, Kishore and Achyuth Kumar on its cast, has been announced as a September 30 release, in time for the Dasara festivities.

At the moment, Kantara only has Navarasa Nayaka Jaggesh’s Thotapuri as competition in Kannada. However, Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan part 1 will be in theatres on the same date and is getting a Kannada version release too.

Recently, when Rishab spoke to the media at the launch of his next as actor, Bachelor Party, he said that although the bull race Kambala is an important element of Kantara, the film is a lot more than that. When he had closed the final edit of the film he had posted, “Ode to the wonderful days and nights spent on the edit sessions, Soaking in the divine world of ‘KANTARA’ We explored the unexpected and went on to traverse #Kantara in all its mystic glory. Closing the final editing of KANTARA. Can’t wait to show this world with you all.”
