Kantara on Prime: Kantara’s OTT release has caused quite a stir. The makers of the film took down the original version of the Varaha Roopam song from its OTT release. Pots this, the Kerala-based band Thaikuddam Bridge reacted to its new version song released on OTT.
Netizens were unhappy with the fact that Kantara makers came up with a new version of the Varaha Roopam song used in the OTT version of Kantara. The makers have taken down the theatrical version after the allegations of plagiarism by a Kerala-based band and the matter also reached court.
Thaikkudam Bridge filed a lawsuit against the makers of Kantara saying that they used their ‘Navarasam’ song without permission and the court ordered that the song be taken down.
Today after Kantara OTT release, Thaikkudam Bridge took to social media and wrote, “Amazon Prime has removed the plagiarised version of our song ‘NAVARASAM’ from the movie KANTARA. Justice Prevails!” They also thanked the musician fraternity, fans, and media who extended their wholehearted support to fight for their rights.”
Meanwhile, netizens are demanding the makers bring back the original version of the song, which is clearly an impossible task for now. Until then, we need to wait for the maker’s comments on this matter.

If Hombale knew Kantara would collect 400cr they would have bought rights for "Varaha Roopam" instead of lifting it 😂
