Going forward, Tamil movie audience will never get to watch big budget movies on the big screen on non festival days, thanks to the new rule enforced by the Tamil Film Producers' council.
According to the baffling rule, movies with a budget of more than 15 crore rupees shall be released only on 10 festival days in a calendar year. The 10 festival days which includes April 14th, August 15th, Diwali day, December 25th and so on has been decided by the producers' Council.
Tamil cinema has grown immensely of late and going by the number of films that manages to cross the budget of 15 crores, it is almost impossible to accommodate so many films in just 10 festival days. This new rule can also force two or even three hugely anticipated movies to release on the same day which might affect the collections of those films.
The rule also means that no big movies can be released until April 14th of a particular year which will definitely make the first three months look dry for a Tamil movie lover. Dhananjayan Govind, one of the member of Tamil Film Producers' council had tweeted, "As per new Tamil Film Producer Council rule, big bud. films (> 15 cr) are going to compete with each other on these(festival) days & affect each other".
Will the council consider the consequences of their new rule and tweak it a little to save the big budget movies or will they stand by their rule by backing it up despite many concerns raised against it? Let's wait and watch as the drama unfolds.
