Can the Indian audience have been provided with an opportunity to live with the experience of the wonders of IRON MAIDEN FLIGHT 666 on the giant 70 mm screen? Not likely, was it not for the impasse between the distributors and the filmmakers.
As a logical corollary of the impasse, a film made on the tour undertaken by the famous rock group IRON MAIDEN FLIGHT 666 has indeed enchanted the audience more so the audience who is into the genre of the kind that IRON MAIDEN FLIGHT 666 advocates. As a matter of fact in all the metropolitan cities where IRON MAIDEN FLIGHT was released it is still going strong in its third week.
The strike has meant that the film producers can now experiment with the quality of content that they can offer to the film aficionados at least in the metropolitan countries. It is also facilitating in creation of a new creed of audience that would have the receptivity for more initiatives of this kind in the future.
Nothing can be traded-off when it comes to the surround sound and the audio outputs that the multiplexes of the modern times can provide. It is like a live audience performance, only difference between that every person in the audience can have the same view of the performance being unleashed on the silver screen, unlike in a concert where few select, sitting in the front rows, are privy to live performance.
Now that the audience has tasted blood it is the opportune time to whet its appetite with more such musical releases both in English and Hindi. There are score of performances of our famous stars, which have been done in different places outside the country, and they could also turn out to be big money spinners if they are released in the cinema halls all over the country. Antics of Kishore Kumar, for example, on stage are a treat worth every paisa on the large screen.
Audience is receptive to as diverse content as possible and the ball is now in the court of the distributors to give them as diversified cuisine as can be possible.
