Scarcity of cinemas hit new films

The flow of multiple releases week after week is playing havoc. Sometime back, this writer had mentioned categorically that the day is not far when release dates will go haywire due to lack of theatres. And that's what is happening.

This Friday, as many as three new Hindi films were confirmed -- MEHBOOBA, MUKHBIR and GOODLUCK. In fact, the producers of MEHBOOBA and GOODLUCK have gone all out to promote their films. With JAANE TU… YA JAANE NA faring exceptionally well and some plexes increasing its shows from next week onwards, it has resulted in the new releases not getting the theatres. Resultantly, the makers of GOODLUCK have decided to shift its release to 1st August. That makes it MEHBOOBA and MUKHBIIR this Friday [July 11], besides two major Hollywood openers, HANCOCK and KUNG FU PANDA.

In the future too, the release dates of a number of films are expected to go topsy-turvy for this reason.
