We know that the divine track Varaha Roopam in Kantara was banned as it is accused of plagiarism from Navarasam track composed by a popular Kerala-based band Thaikkudam Bridge. The band filed a case against the makers of Kantara and Varaha Roopam is now replaced with another song on OTT.
Reportedly, Kozhikode district court in Kerala has dismissed the plea filed by Thaikkudam Bridge in recent times. The district court has stricken off its earlier orders that barred the makers from streaming the song. With this, the court lifted the ban on the devotional number. But a detailed court order is still awaited.
After receiving confirmation from the district court, Varaha Roopam song will be allowed on OTT in Kerala. Anyhow, the removal of the divine track, which is a soul for the film is disappointing every music fanatic. Let’s see what happens in the coming days.
Kantara is based on the culture and traditions of a village in Karnataka. Rishab Shetty, who directed this film, has also played the lead role in it. In the film, Rishab Shetty is seen as a Kambala champion, who is at loggerheads with an upright DRFO officer, Murali.
