Kantara becomes highest-rated Indian film on IMDb, Dhanush calls it a must-watch

Kannada action drama Kantara not only rakes in the dragon, but is also acclaimed from all sides. Actor Dhanush on Friday took to Twitter to call Kantara “mind blowing” and a “must watch.” He went on to say that Rishab Shetty, who both directed and starred, should be proud of himself for what he accomplished with the film.

Kantara, which translates to a mystical forest, tells the story of a local demigod (Bhoota) who, in 1870, traded forest land with the tribe’s people with a king in exchange for good fortune. Many years later, when the king’s son becomes greedy and wants the land back, he dies due to Bhoota’s wrath.

Dhanush tweeted: “Kantara..Amazing!! A must see.. Rishab Shetty, you should be very proud of yourself. Congratulations Hombale movies.. keep pushing the boundaries. A big hug to all the actors and technicians of the film. God bless (sic).”

Dhanush on Friday took to Twitter to call Kantara “mind blowing” and a “must watch.”

The film stars Kishore, Achyuth Kumar, Sapthami Gowda and Pramod Shetty, among others. It has had a phenomenal run at the box office with 13 days gross of 90 crore worldwide. In Karnataka it has grossed about 70 crore so far and still going strong at the counter.

Kantara has also become the highest-rated Indian film on IMDb, surpassing KGF: Chapter 2. The film currently has a 9.4 on IMDb, which is the highest for an Indian film. It is followed by KGF Chapter 2 (8.4) and SS Rajamouli’s RRR (8). The film appeared alongside Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan:1 and still did extremely well at the box office.
