This reporter who had heard good reviews about the offbeat film, tried to book a ticket online, but several ticket booking sites showed the tickets as unavailable. Determined to see the film, the reporter, kept trying to book, but had no luck online. He was even advised that he should go to the theatre in person to purchase the ticket.
On Friday morning, the scribe reached the ticket counter of one of the multiplexes in the city and asked them for a ticket. Much to his shock, the person in the counter informed him that the show was cancelled.
The counter-staff politely told the scribe, ‘Sir ,we need atleast a minimum of four people for a show to begin. We cannot screen a movie just for one person.”
So, this reporter called up another theatre instantly and got a similar response. By then, this reporter had already shelled out Rs. 50 for parking in the multiplex.
As he gave his parking coupon wondering why the audience aren’t ready to support good films, a scene from All in All Azhagu Raja flashed in his mind in which a film called Thai Pongal released on Deepavali screened at a theatre with a disastrous opening.
