Prime Video announces worldwide digital premiere of 'Kantara'

Period action thriller "Kantara" will start streaming on Prime Video from Thursday, the platform has announced.

Written and directed by Rishab Shetty, the hit Kannada film was released in theatres on September 30.

The story of "Kantara" is set around a small community living in the woodlands of Kaadubettu in the southern coastal state of Karnataka. Weaving an interesting plot of human versus nature conflict, where death leads to war between villagers and evil forces and Shiva, a rebel defends his village and nature.

Shetty, who also plays the protagonist Shiva in the film, said he is excited for the global digital premiere of "Kantara" on Prime Video.

"Audiences from all corners of the country have showered immense love on Kantara and I am extremely excited that with its global digital premiere on Prime Video we will be able to take our labour of love and hard work to a wider audience worldwide.         "It is a story that has universal appeal but the plot's local flavour will keep viewers intrigued until the very end," the actor-filmmaker said in a statement.

Producer Vijay Kiragandur of Hombale Films said the banner is always on the lookout for engaging tales in an extraordinary yet relatable manner like "Kantara".

"'Kantara' is yet another film by us that has touched the hearts of audiences from varied regions and backgrounds. Rishab and the entire cast and crew have worked incredibly hard to create this beautiful film and we are delighted to take it to audiences across the globe through the exclusive launch on Prime Video," added Kiragandur.

The film will also be available to Prime members in Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu language dubs.

Sapthami Gowda, Kishore Kumar G and Achyuth Kumar also round out the cast of "Kantara".
