The success of the film shows how to create an enthralling cinematic experience without burning crores. It had taken a decent start at the BO but with the positive reviews pouring in, Kantara saw huge growth in its collections in the coming days.
As per the trade estimation, Kantara has gone past the 50 crores mark in its 10day run at the box office. And now, with the multi-language release, it will now be eying the 100 crore mark domestically.
