Pan-Indian release turns a stress for Filmmakers


Baahubali franchise paved path for a pan-Indian release erasing the barriers of language. Several South films headed for a pan-Indian release but the real fact is that the audience are not ready to watch every big-budget film or periodic dramas from other languages. Movies like Syeraa proved it. Vijay’s Beast that released this week ended up as a disaster. Pawan Kalyan’s Bheemla Nayak is finding tough to find the right release date in North Indian theatres. The producers are spending lavishly on the dubbing work and they are releasing the films in other languages after the lead actors are insisting.

Pan-indian release is a huge stress for filmmakers as most of them are not even recovering the digital expenses. There are several distributors who are ready to release the films of South Indian stars but they are not ready to take the risks. The producers have to bear the digital charges and this is costing a bomb. With RRR and KGF: Chapter 2 emerging as super hits, there would be more and more films heading for pan-Indian release.

Though the North Indian audience love to watch the films of several actors on the small screen, they are not really interested to watch the films of these stars on the big screen. This has been proved several times in the past but the actors are forcing the filmmakers to head for a pan-Indian release which is bringing a lot of financial stress on the makers. Salaar, Pushpa: The Rule and Liger would be the biggest pan-Indian attempts from Tollywood in the future.
