Are Movie Theatres Staring At Empty Seats?
The Corona cases and casualties might have dwindled drastically. This doesn’t mean audiences  are rushing back to movie theatres with stars in their eyes and popcorn bags in their hands. Far from it. Movie theatres

all across India wear  a barren look. Could it get any better in February or March? Shocking as  it may sound, there are no fresh releases  to be put into movie theatres.

“How  long can we survive on leftovers?” a source from one of the leading multiplex chains bemoans. “We are running dubbed  version of Master  to  empty  theatres.”

Producers have been up for releasing their movies on OTT because of the money being offered, effectually shut off all possibilities of a revival in the  movie business. As for hopes being raised after the success  of two South Indian  films Master  and Krack in January is concerned, producer Sheetal Talwar says  it was a  false  hope. “Vijay’s fan clubs in Tamil Nadu  made Master a  hit. And  Ravi Tejaa’s fans in Andhra and Telangana made  Krack a hit. The same audience won’t return for another actor’s release.”

With  no  hope of revival  in fortunes,  movie theatres  in  India are looking at  the  despondent  possibility of closing down again. Unless something completely  unexpected happens.
