Said an engineering student, Anujesh, “We were looking forward to the film and wanted to watch it first day first show. We were quite upset on hearing about the cancellation of shows. But when my friends and I arrived at the theatre this morning, we were told we could watch the second show for a higher sum.” A ticket, priced at Rs 80, was being sold for a whopping Rs 200 for the second show. “The demand for the film made us take the
decision,” said a ticket seller.

But movie-goers didn’t seem to mind. “Multiplexes are selling the same ticket for Rs 400 so we’d rather buy them here,” said Monisha, another student. While the theatres didn’t pay heed to the warning proposed by the KFCC president, a special protection provided by the police at most cinema halls gave confidence to the audience.
