A few days ago, around fifty members, who had taken the
theatrical rights of Kadal for various regions, protested in front
of Madras Talkies office and demanded for the compensation. The
protestors said that they have suffered huge losses, as the film
has failed to impress the audience.
They paid huge amount taking the brand Mani Ratnam into the
consideration. But as the film got thumbs down from critics and
audience, the movie has disappeared from many theatres. Adding to
that the release of Vishwaroopam last week in Tamil Nadu has badly
affected Kadal, which was released on February 1.
However, it is still unclear whether Mani Ratnam, who had
earlier paid compensation for the losses, will do the same this
Mani Ratnam's Kadal is a romantic drama, which stars Gautham Karthik, Thulasi Nair, Arvind Swamy and Arjun Sarja in the lead roles.
