The online booking in a few multiplexes in Bengaluru has already started to give a bigger push to Darshan's Chingaari to get a huge opening on Friday, February 3 when the film is hitting screens in around 140 theatres. This runs contrary to the expectations in the trade that Darshan's films receive very poor response in multiplexes compared to single screens. Already the Cinemax and Cinepolice multiplexes which have a satisfactory online booking orders are thinking of increasing the number of shows for the film, say sources.
The Anupama theatre which is the main theatre in Bengaluru to release the much awaited Darshan film has added some more infrastructure to its existing instruments. "This new additional infrastructural improvements will fecilitate a good viewing experience for the film fans. We have changed our screens and have improved upon our sound systems. Some other sound materials have also been toned up. This is sure to go well with the audience. As for as the change in the screen at entry doors we can not say that this work was done precisely for the "Chingaari' release, as we had planned many days earlier to do something like that' says film distributor Chandanmal Suresh who is also holding leasing rights for the Anupama theatre.
Suresh says that there has been lot of inquiries from fans organisations and many software professionals, but he intends to issue tickets only on Thursday afternoon or evening. "We hope that the first day tickets will be sold as soon as we open the bookings, as the expectations about the film has now reached its peak. Already the success of the audio of the film coupled with the huge expectations on a Darshan film after the superlative success of "Sarathee' has created a big frenzy for the film' says Suresh.
