Yet another restriction by Producers Association on release of movies

In order to allocate a number of theaters for small budget movies, the producers association has imposed a restriction that movies starring lead actors should be screened only during 5 important occasions. People are lamenting that since big ventures occupy majority of theaters, there is prevalent difficulty in release of small ventures.

Theater owners prefer movies by lead actors for release in their theaters during important occasions and other days.

One movie is being screened in number of theaters.  Once the movie screening is over for good, another, mega movie is screened.  Due to this mini ventures are not screened.  Producers Association has resorted to drastic measure regarding this.

Restriction has been imposed that only during 5 important occasions during the year, mega ventures should be released.

SA Chandrasekaran, the head of Producers Assoication stated ‘So as to alleviate the problem, the mega ventures should be screened on five occasions as April 14th – Tamil New Year, May 1st – Laborer’s day, August 15th – Independence Day, Deepavali and Pongal.’

‘Following this restriction small budget movies will have theaters.’, he said.

This is not the first time producers association imposed such a restriction. Several times such announcements have been made but the restriction was not brought to vogue.

Small budget movies are of mediocre quality.  There are small budget films which are aplenty, and two days within release the theater hall is empty.  The plight of the theater owners is such that the rest of the days English movies and dubbed movies are being screened.
