Rishabh Shetty’s Kantara has become an industry hit in the Kannada film industry. The movie, which was made on a budget of 16 crore rupees, has earned about 400 crore rupees at the box office. 

The highlight of the theatre viewing of this film, was Ajneesh composed Varaha Roopam, which has been making rounds on social media and reels since its release. However, if you search for the song on Spotify, you will not be able to find it.

 The Controversy

A band named Thaikkudam Bridge has alleged that ‘Varaha Roopam’ has been plagiarised from their 2017 song, named Navarasam. When the song was released several listeners noted the similarities and took to social media to share their concerns.

A district and session verdict has stopped the producer, music composer, director, and other music platforms from playing the song without the explicit permission of the band. The band had added a suit for an injunction which was filed by Supreme Court music attorney Satish Murthi, on behalf of the band. 

Kantara released on Amazon Prime India on November 24, and fans took to social media to show their discontent with the absence of the song from the version being played on the platform. 


 Pathbreaking movie 

Directed by Rishab Shetty, the movie has gained tremendous popularity in India. In a time when the Hindi film industry is lacking original content, a powerful and regional, movie of this sort has made the debate of ‘local being universal’ much stronger. 

The movie is based on the years-long culture of Bhoota Kola prevalent in the coastal part of Karnataka. The movie was conceptualised during the pandemic. It is written and directed by the lead actor of the movie Rishab Shetty, who earlier starred in the commercially acclaimed Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana.
