Kantara Wins Varaha Roopam Court Case Thaikkudam Bridge Kerala Band Navarasam
Kantara Wins Varaha Roopam Court Case Thaikkudam Bridge Kerala Band Navarasam

The iconic song resurfaces On YouTube after ‘Kantara’ wins the copyright case 

Often referred to as the “Soul of Kantara”, the Rishab Shetty directorial’s “Varaha Roopam” song had recently landed in a soup when the Kerala music band ‘Thaikkudam Bridge’ filed a copyright infringement case. Claiming that ‘Kantara’ had plagiarised their “Navarasam” single and its tunes to compose “Varaha Roopam,” the Kerala band moved the District Court of Kozhikode. After their plea was rejected by the judiciary due to a “lack of jurisdiction,” ‘Thaikkudam Bridge’ moved the High Court. However, the High Court stayed the District Court’s order on the same grounds (lack of jurisdiction) and agreed with Hombale Films’ (producers of ‘Kantara’) objection that ‘Thaikkudam Bridge’ should’ve approached the Commercial Court instead. 

One week after the original rendition of “Varaha Roopam” returned to the OTT version of ‘Kantara’, Rishab Shetty has now confirmed that Team ‘Kantara’ has defended themselves and won the copyright infringement case filed against them. Rishab, the director and lead of ‘Kantara’, tweeted, “ದೈವಾನು ದೈವಗಳ ಆಶೀರ್ವಾದ ಹಾಗು ಜನರ ಅಭಿಮಾನದಿಂದ ವರಾಹರೂಪಂ ಕೇಸ್ ಗೆದ್ದಿದ್ದೇವೆ. ಜನರ ಕೋರಿಕೆಯನ್ನು ಪರಿಗಣಿಸಿ ಅತಿ ಶೀಘ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ OTT platform ನಲ್ಲಿ ಹಾಡನ್ನು ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಲಿದ್ದೇವೆ” (With the blessings of Gods and the love of the people, we have won the Varaha Roopam case. Owing to people’s request, we are going to change the song on OTT platform very soon). 

Reacting to the news, fans voice that “the Soul of Kantara has returned” and have shared screenshots of specific scenes from the film. Check them out below:
