Director Ambarisha M, who made his debut with Jwalantham, is ready with his second outing, Kalantaka. The unique title has been drawn from the Markandeya Purana that talks about Lord Shiva as the conqueror of time and death.
The suspense thriller is set in the small town of Abachur and features Archana Jose of KGF fame, Shridhar K, Dharmendra Urs, Yashwanth Shetty, Kartha Samaga, and Sushmitha Joshi in important roles. It is about how a drug peddler’s heist and efforts to evade cops lead to a series of unfortunate events.
The murder, revenge, and kidnapping drama involves an author, a movie director, and a wannabe actor, says director Ambarisha, adding that the story takes multiple dimensions when humiliation leads to deception. The film has been shot in various locations of Chikmagalur, Mudigere, and Bengaluru.
Meanwhile, the director, who has also written the story, screenplay, and dialogues of the film, plans to reveal the teaser on January 9.
Produced by Shanthakumar, Kalantaka has music scored by Judah Sanday and cinematography by S Halesh.
