3.Reducing the time interval between theatrical and home video release: The dvd release of a successful movie should be done anywhere between 110-125 days of it’s release where as for a flop movie a time gap of 35-60 days would be reasonable.With Kananmani,Kandahar.Best of Luck paving the way,I wish more movies follow this healthy trend.
4.Uniformity in the ticket rates- Too high pricing of tickets will certainly act as a deterrent for the moviegoers.There should be some sort of uniformity in the ticket rates of theatres within the same town/city. For cities like Ernakulam,Tvm and Calicut a ticket fare of 70-75 Rs/- and for smaller towns something between 50-55 would be reasonable. Our neighbouring state,Tamil Nadu, had successfully implanted this practice (of standardizing and controlling ticket fares)a couple of years back,so I think it’s possible to do so in our state also.
5.’Competent’ Advance Booking system- Tele-booking system,internet booking et al will certainly attract more family audience to the theatres.The advance reservation system in our theatres are still in the primitive state.For instance In a big city like Ernakulam though most of the theatres have all the afore said (booking)facilities they are highly incompetent (except for the plexes which have highly efficient advance booking plans)to say the least.The internet booking system for the single screens rarely works while the tele-booking numbers rarely respond!
