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 time.
Mani Ratnam's Kadal is a romantic drama, which stars Gautham Karthik, Thulasi Nair, Arvind Swamy and Arjun Sarja in the lead roles.
