All efforts to resolve the contentious revenue sharing issue between the multiplex owners and producers/distributors remains unresolved. In fact, rather than inching closer to a solution, the differences have become more pronounced and bitter. Some sections of the trade feel that in a way the talks have broken down, so there is no hope of any reconciliation in the near future. All the same we are still hopeful and optimistic of some headway in the near future.
The coming Friday will see the release of just one film, the relatively unheard of DETECTIVE NANI, featuring Ava Mukherji in the title role and master Zain Khan of CHAIN KULII KI MAIN KULII fame. If the makers feel that the families with kids in tow will throng the cinemas due to the holidays and the genre of their film, DETECTIVE NANI, they are sadly mistaken because they are likely to see almost empty theaters.
