'Kantara' Connect With Messi Wows Netizens

The meme of Lionel Messi on the ground with Diego Maradona in a ‘Daiva’ avatar is going viral

In a nail biting, pulsating final, a game that saw fans cry out in both joy and despair, Messi-led Argentina got the better of France to take home the World Cup football trophy. 

Lionel Messi, the captain of the Argentine team and arguably the greatest footballer ever has always faced the criticism of not having been able to bring home the World Cup for Argentina. That dream finally came true on Sunday. 

At one stage in the game, Argentina seemed headed for a comfortable victory but France pulled back with an incredible display and the battle went down to the wire. With the match in the stalemate, Messi was tackled and fell to the ground, exhausted. Seizing upon the moment, an Indian movie fan replicated this image with the face of soccer legend Diego Maradona bending down on Messi albeit in the avatar of a ‘daiva’ from the Pan-Indian hit Kantara.

Fans of ‘Kantara’ will recall the grand climax of the film when the hero (Rishab Shetty) is defeated by the goons and lying on the ground. That’s when the Daiva imbues him and bestows him with the energy to defeat the villains and safeguard the forest, a climax that’s easily one of the best in this decade.

Naturally, fans were amazed at this artistry and complimented the meme. Among those who hailed it was Tollywood actor and filmmaker Rahul Ravindran. Praising the work, Rahul Ravindran said whoever created it should come forward and claim his award.
