One of the biggest blockbusters of the year, Kannada film Kantara, starring Rishab Shetty in the lead role, is all set to stream on Amazon Prime Video. The movie, which continues to mint money at the box office, will begin streaming from November 24.
Kantara revolves around a small community living in the woodlands of Kaadubettu in the southern coastal state of Karnataka. In a conflict where death leads to war between villagers and evil forces, a rebel Shiva defends his village and nature.
