S. S. Rajamouli is upset!
Gone are the days when movies run to houseful audiences for 50 days and beyond. With a movie releasing practically every other weekend, it is exceedingly difficult to set such records anymore. Nevertheless, upon the insistence of fans and probably even filmi people, theatres are paid to run a movie even after it has outrun the interest of the audience. And hence 50 days and 100 days records are met and celebrated. No one dared call the bluff and the tradition goes on. But now a voice of reason has risen. Director S. S. Rajamouli has tweeted his distaste in these records that are practically fabricated. The tweets posted by the Baahubali director a while ago, is as follows: "Record number of 50 days, 100 days,175 days are things of past. Today, Films are being released in 1000′s of screens and run is over by 3-4 weeks. Few main screens might still give shares, but mostly the run is over. It is very sad when some fans ask for an extension, sometimes paying out of their pockets and sometimes asking the exhibitors to do so. Friends..! what do we gain out of these false records??" "Audience have given us a memorable victory, that we will remember for the rest of our lives. What more do we need? Our industry is plagued by this issue for a long time. Let’s not be a part of it. It is high time we stopped this. Bahubali will run in theatres that are yielding shares. If not, it will make way for other new films to follow. We will NOT block theatres for false records" These words of wisdom come from a director who has just had a resounding, thus far unseen, thunderous hit. Hence, he and his movie do not need gimmicks to keep the show going. Will his brethren in the biz see the meaning in his words or will they go up in arms against him? Let's wait and find out.
