The day today started with a good news after the strike by Tamil Film Producer’s Council was called off. It lasted for 45 days since March 1. At 8 am today, the members of the council were supposed to decide which film would end the drought at the theatres after so many days and now we have the answer. Vishal has tweeted, "Here we go. Our first Tamil film release after the revamp is gonna be #MercuryMovie in a grand scale.looking fwd to this lovely venture from @karthiksubbaraj.all da best. #Tfpc will assure a huge and grand release wit all support. God bless." This definitely is good news for the film because the other versions of the film had already released on April 13. But Karthik had decided to go ahead with the strike in TN despite it affecting his film. Now that the impasse is over, more and more films will hit the theatres. In the midst of all this, the industry has lost out a lucrative time like the Tamil New Year for big releases.
But it's better late than never. Yesterday a meeting was conducted between TFPC, DSPs and the Tamil Government. The meeting resolved a lot of issues between the parties and thus the strike was called off. Here's the list of demands that were agreed upon, at the meeting:
Now, we wonder if Rajinikanth's Kaala will release next week. A big movie like it will boost ticket sales and that's exactly what the industry needs, to recover from the aftermath of the strike.
