Chennai – HOUSEFULL !!
UPDATE : The “Blind Date” in Sathyam Theatres, this thursday, is all booked up, already. Usually the Blind Date is even available on Thursday afternoons, and I have booked tickets. For people who dont know about Blind Date, Sathyam Premiers a new movie every week (Thursday evening) as a surprise movie – the audience unaware of what they will be watching.
Looks like everyone is expecting this week’s movie to be Sivaji, otherwise the tickets for Blind Date would still be available. If someone goes on a Blind Date, let us know if it was Sivaji. They would be a set of lucky people, who didn’t stand in any queue and just gambled on their luck, and watch the movie before anyone does. We will know, tomorrow. (End of Update).
House fullu ma !!
Sathyam is screening Sivaji for atleast 10 shows per day, this weekend – the opening week for the mega-blockbuster Sivaji. Abirami is showing Sivaji in three of its four screens. Udhayam is showing it in all its theatres. Picking up the new trend, Sivaji not only gets released in Simultaneous screens of a same Cineplex, it also sets a record in the number of theatres a movie gets released in Chennai at a time. Reports have it, that 60,000 tickets are available per day at Chennai alone.
This is clever business, and Kollywood has been following it for quite some time now. But no movie like Sivaji. Not these many theatres. The promos are already dazzling. The City’s double-decker buses now feature Sivaji advertisements. Shankar and team have brought out the complete charisma of the Superstar, and it shows.
Just three more days to go, and we will know.. Sivaji Rightaaa ?
