Rishab Shetty’s Kantara is still running successfully in the theaters and is winning the hearts of the movie lovers. Apart from helming this film, Rishab Shetty also played the lead role. Kantara is already a raging blockbuster across the globe and the entire team is basking in the glory of its success. Recently, there were comparisons to the 2018 film Tumbbad in the manner in which the films were shot and their craftsmanship.  A section of the audience compared  Kantara to Tumbbad. This stemmed from the fact that both the movies are rooted in folklore and have elements of horror. Tumbbad’s Creative Director Anand Gandhi has now reacted to these comparisons.

Anand Gandhi wrote on Twitter: “Kantara is nothing like Tumbbad. My idea behind Tumbbad was to use the horror as an allegory of toxic masculinity and parochialism. Kantara is a celebration of these.

Anand Gandhi’ comments  about Kantara have sparked a row on Twitter.

 One of the netizen wrote: Your understanding of Indian society, masculinity and Dharma is pretty parochial. Don’t preach, that’s not your job. Your lot is proving Chanakya right even after 2000+ years.

Sanjeevee sadagopan : The plot of the movie is one such and the character required it. You can’t show him as someone who walks like a gentle cat. Have you watched Paruthiveeran?

 Chayran: Because it’s a north film and the creator of the film himself is saying this out of jealousy even though his film has been appreciated I’m not kannada but even I can blindly say Kantara is 100 times better and brilliant This one doesn’t come close And who cares what other say

Tumbbad is horror drama that revolves around the protagonist’s search for a treasure in British India. It is helmed by Rahi Anil Barve, and was released in 2018. On the otherside, Kantara  celebrates the traditional culture of Kambla and Buta Kola.
