States that Kantara is a celebration of toxic masculinity and parochialism

In 2018, a Bollywood film called Tumbbad was released starring Sohum Shah in the lead. Directed by Rahi Anil Barve, the movie was produced by a consortium including Anand Gandhi who also contributed to the screenplay. The horror flick follows the story of the lead actor’s search for a hidden treasure in the 20th century British India village of Tumbbad, Maharashtra. 

It was the first Indian movie to be screened at the 75th Venice International Film Festival. Netizens have been comparing Tumbbad to Kantara because of the similar ways in which both films blended folklore into the central plot of their films.

However, Anand Gandhi who watched Kantara on OTT recently took to Twitter to express his disappointment with the film. “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,” posted Gandhi. Interestingly, Gandhi found support from many netizens who said that Kantara was a highly overrated film and that Tumbbad was leagues above Kantara. 

It remains to be seen how Kantara team will react to this sensational claim by Anand Gandhi.
