Cinema strike affects Mollywood

The cinema strike, which has been announced by the theatre owners have virtually brought the Malayalam film industry into a standstill. Two major releases which were scheduled for Nov 2 has now been postponed and this in turn will affect the rest of the schedules as well.

The exhibitors are demanding a hike in the service charge from Rs. 2 to Rs. 7. The state minister for films and an actor himself, K B Ganesh Kumar has made it clear that the government is clear about the stand on the cinema strike and it is unwarranted.

There is resentment reportedly within the striking organization itself and two prominent theatres in Kochi have not gone on strike. More theatre owners are certain to follow suit as they have already committed to release Tamil superstar Vijay’s magnum opus, Thuppaakki, this weekend.
