BIG 4 vs SMALL.
Stop legal looting – Abolish Theatres lease system
We [small budget film producers, directors,technicians,distributors] after years of suffering and exploitation, hv revolted against the
Big 4 monopolists:
1.Suresh Babu- Suresh Movies Film Distributors.
[366 Theatres on lease as officially claimed on their website:
2.Sunil Narang- Asian film distributors & Asian Multidimension.
3.Allu Aravind. Geetha film distributors.
4.dil Raju – sri venkateswara film distributors. -18 theatresIn the past when some producers sat fr fast, the lesses/exhibitors aftr many discussions had agreed to exhibit small budget films on percentage system and issued an advt in ANDHRA JYOTHY dialy by their association as below:
but later they VIOLATED that and started squeezing rent,
after waiting fr a long time we decide to start this agitation
as they hv cheated, deceived and duped us.
wil giv u 2 examples how the producers/buyers benefit in the percentage system
and how they r looting the money which shd actually belong to the producer [ who puts his hard earned & borrowed money ]
CASE 1 :
‘Prasthanam’ movie collected rs 3,00,000/- net fr 1 week aftr deducting 7% e.tax the lessee took 2,75,000/- and the producer got 25,000/-
If it cud hv bn percentage system,
on 31% occupancy the producer cd hv got 45% share from 3 lakhs i.e 1,35,000/- and the lesse share shd actually b 55% i.e 1,65,000/- bt he took 275,000/-
In Odeon theatre, the lesse Suresh productions collected rs 2,80,000/- for a film as weekly rent , later the producer c.c reddy came 2 know frm the theatre owner that the lesse was paying him just rs80,000/- … They were charging 2lakhs extra on the lease amount per week
So producer’s share of 1 lakh [As per the percentage which they agreed and issued an ad] had gone into the pocket of the lessee.LIKE THIS PER THEATRE ON AN AVERGE ,1LAKH PER FILM…
HOW MUCH MONEY THEY ARE MAKING , JUST CALCULATE
and the abv mentioned producers cud hv covered their max investment if it had been on the percentage system with out big losses.
They made it in right budgets, y d u drag audiences int this rana? Don’t deviate the issue
There is no market fr small budget films in this rental system- thts very clear.
THE SMALL PRODUCERS ARE STRUGGLING 2 GET BACK THEIR INVESTEMENT WITH OUT PROFITS AFTER MANY MONTHS OF STRUGGLE TO COMPLETE THE FILM
[ EXCEPT VERY FEW PRODUCERS WITH BIG SUCCESS]
BUT THE LESSEE’S ARE MAKING HUGE MONEY .
SO SHARE, PART OF UR HUGE PROFITS TO THE PRODUCERS.
WE ARE DEMANDING FOR 24 WEEKS COMPULSARY SCREENING OF SMALL BUDGET FILMS ON PERCENTAGE SYSTEM,
REST OF 48 WEEKS U CAN RUN ON RENTAL SYSTEM.
IS THIS FUSS?
IS THIS LOOKS LIKE A STORY TO U ?
u n rana abused us like ….
fools, pigs, cinema-illiterate, ediots… on ur tweets
Ok will bear all the humiliation as we r fighting [Dharma Yuddham]
for da survival and existence of the thousands of families.
We r prepared for the worst in this war,
and most of US , r prepared to sit HUNGER STRIKE also as the final step.
WHO R GULLIBLE?
WHO IS GVNG DISTORTED INFO?
Can u come out with the complete details in which state there is a similar sitn like a.p?
AS PER UR STATEMENT [ twitter] ‘ ‘The so-called "families" hold less than 250-300 theatres…
Then wat abt da the list on sureshproductions website shwng 366 officially?
is that wrong figure?
What abt geeta arts can u disclose the list?
Can u say there r no lease theatres on benami names in nizam, ceded & Andhra?
U wrote WHOLE ‘THEATRE CONTROLLING ‘ DRAMA IS POLITICIZED BY FEW PPL IN THE INDUSTRY FR THEIR PERSONAL GAINS…
CAN U NAME THEM ?
Y DO YOU BRING POLITICS IN THIS ISSUE.?
YES WE AGREE THERE ARE VERY FEW SMALL INDIVIDUAL PLAYERS, BUT THAT IS RESTRICTED 2 PARTICULAR CITY/TOWN AND THAT DOESN’T EFFECT MUCH.
Why r u taking theatres lease on benami names? And Y da syndicate business
with sunil narang and rammohan of multidimension ent p ltd [ karvy group company] ?
CAN U DECLARE THE THETRES LIST TO PUBLIC WITH THE COMPLETE DETAILS OF THE AMOUNT U ARE PAYING TO THE OWNERS AND HOW MUCH RENT U ARE COLLECTING FROM THE BUYER/PRODUCER ?
Can u giv the cities/towns list where u hv 80-90% of thetres on their lease
With clear Monopoly?
CAN U DISCLOSE ALL THE TRANSACTIONS DONE FRM LAST FEW YEARS ?
CAN U COME fr DISCUSSION ON T.V CHANNEL WITH PROPER LISTS AND FACTS
u gathered huge support fr piracy we appreciate fr dat, bt at the same time u react on the Survival problems of the small film makers and support them.
u makes films in percentage system without gvng high remunerations fr safety bt refuses percentage in theatres, Y double standards?
Y did a buyer slapped ur mngr jagdeesh in r.p rd?
Y did the buyers put pamphlets angst u in r.p rd?
Ppl say ‘Suresh babu policy — Make money, make no else make money.’ Is that true?
wil ur company come undr Monopolies and Restrictive Trade Practices (MRTPC) act or not?
U GUYS ARNED CRORES OF RUPEES IN FEW YEARS ON THE LEASE SYSTEM ENOUGH ….
ATLEAST NOW LEAVE THIS BUSINESS FOR TWO YEARS
AND SEE HOW THE INDUSTRY WILL FLOURISH, U CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE.
Mr dil RAJU, is holding only 18 theatres, that too in the meeting he openly declared bfore all that he will leave the lease business once fr all as he is gtng bad image, so that he concentrate more on his production affairs
Sunil narang also expressesd to mr prasanna kumar producers council sec that he leave the theatres lease business and requested him not to darg his name into this
other small lesses r READY 2 LEAVE THIS BUSINESS ONCE FOR ALL
SO EVERY THING IS IN THE HANDS OF SURESH BABU& ALLU ARAVIND
LEAVES IT PERMANENTLY FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE FILM INDUSTRY THEN IT WILL BE INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION FR THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY.
U R LIVING LIKE A KING, ATLEAST ALLOW US TO LIVE
[ HAND 2 MOUTH]
IN KRISHNA NAGAR SOME FAMILIES R ABLE TO HAV 1 MEAL A DAY.
WE R NT GREEDY AND DON’T WANT 2 EARN MONEY LIKE THIS.
ANOUNCE THAT YOU WILL LEAVE LEASE BUSINESS
ON MAY 26 TH @FILM CHAMBERS MEETING
