I watched #KantaraMovie today and was thrilled while watching the #Varaha #Worship scenes. Appa had narrated a story where some 20+ years back he travelled with forest rangers deep into the south Canara forest in the middle of the night to see Bhuta worship dance and ritual.

He took some amazing photographs with his film camera very similar to the visuals in the movie. We are trying to locate those photographs. Will share it soon.

I watched Rishab Shetty's interview in #Tamil and what a conviction in his #Hindu #Belief (#Deiva_Vazhipadu)! Appa would have loved this movie!

Congrats to the entire #KantaraMovie team for bringing out our regional traditions and culture to #entertainment field🙏.

The Traditional Bharateeya Lens of #Purushartha is very powerful. Its a lens that comes out of our ‘purpose’ of life and from ‘real experiences’.

It is not merely ideological. It elevates into Ontology and Epistemology.

Hence, powerful.

At the outset, this looks natural - so what is so great about it?

- That it looks natural is one part of its greatness.

- The other part is - Tradition explored the balance between these 4 elements in enormous detail, complexity & nuance.

Mahabharata stands testimony to it.

In #Kantara

The State appreciates Artha & Kama only.
- Highly places its own Artha
- Not aware of its own Kama
- Places Artha-Kama of the Society as subservient to its own
- Does not recognize Moksha (Daiva)
- Appreciates Dharma only as Law & Order

Purushartha imbalance.

#Kantara, the latest Kannada movie directed by #RishabhShetty, has been making headlines ever since its release. True to its origins, the film of rustic brilliance is receiving positive responses from the who's who of the film fraternity across India, while wowing #cinema lovers! Image
Our Emeritus Director, Dr. K. Ullas Karanth, is the latest to share his admiration for Kantara. As a conservation organisation based in #Karnataka, we are pleased to share Dr. Karanth’s words of praise for the #film and the filmmaker as follows:
"I saw Rishab Shetty’s (@shetty_rishab) stunning movie, Kantara, last night! It was a deeply moving experience, which held me in a trance-like state from beginning to end."

This is an old Bengali song - 'ভাঙ খেয়ে বিভোর ভোলানাথ ভূতগণ সঙ্গে নাচিছে ' (Bholanath is dancing with the Bhootas after consuming bhaang) But didn't know much about these bhutas
Recent #KantaraMovie explores these fascinating concepts. Amazing Guliga (Bhoota Kola) performance 👇 Not just simple role playing- these are sacred to the natives 🙏
Comment section under the video has a lot of information

My reflections on the #KantaraMovie

This is not a Review. This is just a summarised enumeration of some of the finest things in the movie & its importance.

Anything said is an understatement.

+
1. As somebody else said on Twitter, our dEvatAs are back. We have regained the dEvatAs/the Sacred with a critical space in the Cinema.

Make no mistake, we have had Devotee-characters in our cinema. But we now have dEvatAs as an integral part of the plot, narration & essence.

+
2. We have regained independence from ‘Realism’ as the primary form of telling a story.

Nagin/Magadheera, Fantasy movies stories were shy attempts.

Kantara is an unabashed foregrounding of the Indian form. The Myth merges with the Real to create a universal form.
