Why Kantara Exposes Bollywood Fully | Akash Banerjee
This is not a movie review, but a recommendation... if you plan to see a movie in theaters, check out
Kantara. Even Kangana Ranaut praised the movie after seeing it in the theater...she said that it gave her goosebumps.
Kantara's success is a revelation to many people Just by word of mouth, this film has grossed over Rs 160 crore which is extraordinary... this is many times its small budget. On the contrary,
Bollywood movies cannot break even. huge budget at the box office I'm not analyst Taran Adarsh... so there's more to this video than box office numbers
Kantara reminds us of issues beyond sensationalism, nationalism etc like feudalism, tribal rights , the caste system, land grabbing and so on.
And people like to spend money to see it in the room.
Kantara features the multi-talented Rishab Shetty, who worked as a writer, director and actor on the film Just like me, right, editor? Shetty has used folklore, superstition, and mythological subject matter to highlight tribal, state, and feudal issues. The film sticks to his theme and is commercially viable.
Kantara is not a documentary about tribal rights...it's an entertaining account of the issues facing tribal people. General audience. he doesn't care about tribal rights...still the movie is successful This was also common in
Bollywood when they made movies about social ills...now it has changed The angry young man is now a calm old man...nationalism is the factor motivator in
Bollywood... no more authority-defying movies Socio-political experiments in
Bollywood are very limited Because it has become more and more risky to make these kinds of movies Also, people's attention spans are shortened However, a good movie can keep you hooked like Jai Bhim Jai Bhim highlighted various socio-political issues and was successful at the box office.
Socially relevant stories are a norm in Tamil Telugu Malayali Marathi cinema. They are not successful because of money. or production banner, but because of the gripping stories and word of mouth What is even the role of the boycott gang?
Bollywood has to introspect
Bollywood has boycotted good scripts, experimental stories... making safe movies that don't do well anyway Don't make movies that provoke that's the formula, the result is one box office flop after another
Bollywood is driven because of the hype now Can you name a
Bollywood movie from the past few years that has given you food for thought?
What defied the rules? Write in the comments if you know that making movies about social and/or political issues is not an easy task... people oppose that too. But still, people can be drawn in if the story is lucrative. .. the king seeks inner peace. He finds a deal with Panjurli Daiva of the forest...the tribal people are promised the land of the forest in exchange for peace of mind. Weak and illiterate tribal people face difficulties when trying to take their land Only Daiva can protect the tribes, an invisible energy. The king's successor insults Daiva. He denies existence and wants to take back the land from the tribes.
I won't reveal what happens to the king, but there are a lot of twists and turns. Rights have been cleverly integrated into the story. The tribal relationship with the owner, for example, how the house is purified from him when it is entered. The fight sequences by Vikram Mor, who also worked at KGF, are praised.
Kantara's budget was nothing compa. red to KGF's... this is where creativity plays a part Slow motion videography, fight and environment interaction (fire, water, etc.) Doesn't feel like a low budget movie at all... feels like a high budget VFX sequence Audio and thematic settings are interesting...movie music by B.
Ajaneesh Loknath captures the mystery and drama of the story. Sudden bursts of sound keep you on the edge of your seat. Even Kangana was surprised. The most important reason to watch is the social issue of it. ... the issue of tribal rights Tribes have become one with the forest for centuries Government interference in their way of life creates conflict between tribal leader and forest officer Forest officer plays his role well .. saving the environment is their duty So the conflict and banter between the two is a delight Worth seeing how they end up supporting each other Final reason why I think this video every
Bollywood producer and director should watch
Kantara. .. how they made a brilliant low budget movie
Bollywood can also make small scale movies and take risks, if not big production movies.
At least there will be chances to experiment and emerge new talents in the industry... and who knows a blockbuster?
Kantara is the highest rated movie on IMDb in India... despite some flaws, like deep-seated sexism... southern movies have to overcome that too. However, subject selection and risk-taking skills are better than
Bollywood actors. acting these days Producers are busy pandering to the establishment
Bollywood has a lot to learn otherwise flops will continue SUBSCRIBE AND PRESS THE BELL ICON
