I suppose right now everyone would have actually come across theatres selling popcorn (small) for Rs.40 or a Rs.10 Lays or Bingo packet for Rs.50 (Yup it's true and the best part is the MRP is still visible on the packet!).
Do you think all movie theatres have become worse or instead better? They don't allow almost any foodstuff inside these days as well. Ticket prices are sort of the same which is I think a good thing as if they had increased as well, it would be very very bad.
This is the reason why I stopped going to movie halls.
While they're to be blamed for their greed, we should also hold the public who will pay Rs. 100 for a glass of fizzy drink as responsible. When people are ready to pay, looters will price their crappy stuff as high as possible.
They want to get rid of piracy and all that, but people who want to go visit a movie hall and pay for the movie are being ripped off like crazy. I'm not sure if this is quite the strategy to eradicate piracy.
Unfortunately that is true. If they say you are stealing money from us to pirates, why do they stop the services which bring movies at home for example on set top boxes? Pay some money and watch some kind of stuff. Don't they earn from that? It's a problem when the filmmakers make sure that people are forced to watch in theatres. I don't think that money is a concern for them...
