It is without a doubt that 'Kantara' is the most successful film in recent times. This movie which was made on a budget of 15 crores ended up minting more than 340 crores and it is still getting decent money from all over the country. It was a straight Kannada film at the beginning but it became popular in other parts too and started collecting big in the South as well as North.

This interesting film has a lot of highlights but it is the scream of Daiva Roopam which stunned the audience. Rishab Shetty explained in a recent interview about how he mastered it for this film. He said, "See it's a real thing that happens in our kola. We call it Daiva Kola, so there it's not just a scream, it's a statement. It's a verdict, it's an emotion so it's a blessing. So whatever I witnessed in our Daiva Kola since childhood that power of nature enters inside a human body and what happens after that is the reaction I tried to recreate." Talking about sequel, he told, “No comments because right now the focus is on Kantara. We will think about the sequel later. Nevertheless, we tried several sub-plots for the film. We call it 'upakatha'. So we have sub-plots options for the sequel."

Speaking about its release in Tulu, he stated, "The film is presently being dubbed in Tulu, and a large portion of it is already done. They want to release the film in December's first week, but that is subject to getting the censor certificate."

Rishab Shetty's movie is expected to collect more than 100 crores in North India and it already minted over 40 crores in the Telugu states. No one expected this movie to become such a big success but the movie's craze increased rapidly after the release. Now, the movie ended up being the All Time Highest Grossing film in Karnataka. The movie beat the collections of 'KGF Chapter 2' in Karnataka state and emerged to the top spot.

Written and directed by Rishab Shetty himself, this movie is produced by Vijay Kiragandur. Music is composed by B Ajaneesh Loknath while Aravind S Kashyap is the cinematographer. Pratheek Shetty and KM Prakash are the editors and action is composed by Vikram Mor.
