    The movie was good.
    But will the Director clarify why was a Ayyappa swami black dress code along with Mala was used to define a villain in the final climax. What was the need.
    A Swami in black attire with Mala is always in penance with pure mind and soul and njn violent. Why was the vilian shown in a swami attire?

    “ಕಾಂತಾರ” ದಲ್ಲಿ ನಾನು ಅರಿತದ್ದು: ಸರ್ಕಾರ, ಪೋಲೀಸ್ ಅಥವಾ ಇನ್ನು ಯಾವುದೇ ಅಧಿಕಾರ ಅಮಾಯಕ, ಅಸಹಾಯಕ ಸಾಧಾರಣ ಜನರನ್ನು ಕಾಪಾಡಲಾಗದಾಗ ಆ ಅಮಾಯಕರ ನಂಬಿಕೆ, ಭಕ್ತಿ ಮತ್ತು ಒಗ್ಗಟ್ಟು ಅವರನ್ನು ಕಾಪಾಡುತ್ತದೆ.

    When all else fails to protect the helpless, his faith, reverence and oneness with nature protects hi.

    Hi there,
    Nice review, enjoyed the movie quiet a lot. But one thing that pinching me is- the deal between the Panjurli and the king in simple terms is he will bless (give) happiness and peace to his family in exchange for the land to the tribals. As we can see in the Movie now the present generation of the King – Devendra’s Son is shown as Disabled (who would call this a blessing of happiness) , isn’t it implies that the Panjurli too gone back on his promise to the King. Please enlighten me.

      Hello Koti Reddy,

      Panjurli gave the King a blessing and kept her word until his family kept their word. One man questioned and he took back his blessing to help them learn from their mistakes, But Devendra did not learn and he paid for his deeds. Instant justice and long term punishment both are ways of Panjurli. And yes, writer could have been more effective in showcasing some more incidents with family and murali.

    I some what agree with the article. The movie is a good watch but the mid section of the movie is dragging to long. Like most Indian movie first and last few minutes are relatable while rest is to fill gap. We have seen many similar movies. What would have been better if the hero in subconscious state transforms and protects the forest and village through out the movie might have been plausible but it chose the old fashioned romance and comedy in the body. But at least the effort to raise interest in Hindu lore and mythos is appreciated.
