      Here is what Lijo Jose Pellissery has to say...

      'The film producers have all the right to release their production ventures in the platforms they think is favourable. Similarly, it is the theater owners who have the right to decide which film should be released in the theaters. At the same time, the viewers have the utmost freedom to the medium and time to watch the films according to their personal preferences.

      However, it is not practical for everyone to wait for the release of a film for another eight or ten months. But at the same time, films should be given the priority only after we win back our lives.', said Lijo Jose Pellissery.

      To the uninitiated, the Malayalam film industry is all set to have its first-ever direct OTT release very soon, with the upcoming Jayasurya-Aditi Rao Hydari starrer Sufiyum Sujathayum. But, this decision has not gone well with the theater owners association. Reportedly, the association has even decided to ban Vijay Babu, the producer of the project from releasing his film in the theaters hereafter.
