We’re all set to witness one of the biggest clashes this week with films from three industries arriving in theatres. One of those films is Thalapathy Vijay’s Beast, which is highly anticipated by his fans and even a neutral audience. However, the film is lagging far behind in cashing in on its momentum as the advance booking of the Hindi version flagged off today evening.
Frustration among Thalapathy Vijay’s fans over Beast’s Hindi advance booking…
As most of us know, Vijay’s Beast, Yash’s KGF Chapter 2 and Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey are clashing in theatres from this Friday. Vijay’s film will enjoy a benefit on its opening day as the film is releasing one day prior to the other two films. Shockingly, despite arriving a day earlier, the advance booking of Vijay’s film (for the Hindi version) has flagged off today evening, which is 2-3 days late when compared to the other two films.
What’s more surprising is that many Thalapathy Vijay fans aren’t even aware that advance booking for the film has started.
Different titles & a lot of confusion!
As expected, the confusion between Beast and Raw is backfiring a big time. For the unversed, the Hindi version of the film has been titled Raw for unknown reasons. So if you want to book tickets for the Hindi version, you will need to search ‘Raw’ in Bookmyshow or any other movie ticket booking platform.
Fully-fledged advance booking is yet to open & here’s why it’s stuck
Even though the advance ticket sale has been started, it is yet to open full-fledged. Shockingly, at the time this article is being written, there’s only one show in the entire Mumbai. In other cities too, there’s not much showcasing for the Hindi version.
As per reports flowing in, there’s an issue between Beast’s Hindi distributors (UFO Moviez) and theatre owners over the distribution of theatrical revenue share. Also, as KGF Chapter 2 is releasing on the very next day, there’s chaos over sharing screens with Thalapathy Vijay’s film.
Trade reports are stating that the matter is expected to get solved by Monday evening and the Hindi version will be fully open for the advance booking.
