Vijay fans protest at Devi Cinemas

Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s fans in Chennai conducted a protest in front of Devi Theater Complex, Anna Salai, Chennai to request the theater owners to screen their hero’s forthcoming flick ‘Velayudham’ which is hitting the screens on the eve of Deepavali(October 26, 2011). Devi Theater Complex, one of the biggest cinema halls in Chennai(with 4 theatres Devi, Devi Bala, Devi Kala and Devi Paradise,), is said not to be screening Velayudham at any of it’s theaters. It is worth mentioning that Suriya’s 7aam Arivu, another Deepavali release is scheduled to be screened in two big screens Devi and Devi Paradise.

Following this a group of Vijay fans staged an agitation holding the flags of Vijay Makkal Iyakkam and requested the theater owner to release the film at least in either of the theaters Devi or Devi Paradise. They’ve also written a leter to the management which is signed by 2000 fans.

Velayudham has got 38 screens in Chennai, including Sathyam, Santham, Screw, Inox, Woodlands and Sangam Cinema. It is said that the film would have released in more theatres if Surya’s 7aam Arivu was not hitting the screens at the same time.

  1. Vijay fans why u r tensed….. 38 theaterslaum 100 days Velayutham odaum…. neega yenn theater ella nu kavalai padureenga…………..

  2. its all about collections in the 1st 3 weeks .. the more the # of screens -more the collection -especially when rajtamil uploads new movies within the first week .Piracy kills collections 🙁

  3. stupid vijay fans.. they think they can force anybody to do anything.. if they really had an strong fan base why could they not make his previous flop movies an hit.. will they or their hero compensate if the theatre owners make an loss screening this movie??

    remember what happened to SURA?? where were u guys when theatre owners made an loss?? you and your hero went into hiding.. and Vijay never came forward to compensate!!

  4. jobless idiots! I strongly feel Vijay is paying them to do this.. I dont understand why such an stupid actor will ever have an fan.

  5. HEHE ofcourse the priority of suriya’s movie is higher than vijay’s. Vijay had given 7 flops in a row…

  6. new strategy to pull crowd…if quality is good automatically theatreas will screen his movie.

  7. U r correct , but they upload such a poor quality in the first week, where even the back ground is not clear.. those who are ready to watch such a low quality video would never spend to even enter theaters

  8. Reminds me of thalaivar Kounamani’s dialogue..

    Oorula Nondi nosakkaan,
    Vendhadhu vegaadhadhu,
    Petti kadaila kadan sonnadhu..
    Beediya killi kudichadu..
    Sandha kadaiyila Karupatti thirudittu odinadhu..

    Indha motha kumbalum ingha dhaanyaa irukku…!!!

  9. @kh, @unmai made an valid point.. u also make an valid point and stop acting like an stupid Vijay fan!

  10. Dei velayudham next month poyi amaithiya parange da.During that gap watch the original telegu version.ok va?dont fight.7 arivu is better than sura,pura vetaikaran and of course velayudham..

  11. Whatever u guys say I think Velayudham collections will be in par with 7 aam Arivu (even though its being screened in lesser # of screens) . I dont think 7aam Arivu has staying power in B and C centers

  12. saw latest stills of 7aam Arivu …kandravi..asapula ali maathiri thaan irukkan surya ..no wonder so many 9’s are surya fans .. or all surya fans 9 ? 😀

  13. guys i dont see a point in all of you people fighting over vijay and surya god their making the money u wasting ur money.. nobody caress just relax and all will fall in place.

  14. DICK HEADS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    YOU CAN SEE WHO RUNS  TAMIL NADU. FAN CLUBS, FANATICS. THE LAW SHOULD TAKE THE UPPER HAND. UNTIL IDIOTS LIKE THIS EXIST IN TAMIL NADU SEVEN A HALF SANI WILL CONTINUE. PLEASE GUYS GO AND GET A LIFE AND THER IS MORE IMPORATNT THINGS THANS THIS IN LIFE.

  15. vijay should address his fans to play it cool. this crap makkal iyakkam has a political force behind. i hope these guys have other jobs to do accept disrupt public life.

  16. So now fans are blackmailing theatre owners to screen their favourite hero’s movies. Looks like vijay is really manipulating his fans to get things done on his favour. Vijay Makkal Iyakkam beginning to look like a political party now. Shame on you Vijay.

  17. How much is vijay paying these guys to protest? Oru pottalam briyani aah?. Hello vellai illathe vetti pasanga ungga thalaivar padam nalla irunthuchina kandipa periya screen ke mathuvanga. Logic kuda theriyadha?. What nonsense yaar!!!

  18. After giving 7 flops in a row, can anyone ask for big screens like Devi, Devi Paradise or Sathyam?? In today’s trend people look for creativity and not these stupid copied movies of same stereo typed films from Telugu. Vijay fans must be happy that they got atleast 2 small screens at Devicineplex and not crib like a baby. Grow up!!!

  19. i dont think the no. of screens will affect the performance of the film.. a gd example was when engeyyum epothum released together with vandhan vendran.. EE released with 252 shows while VV got 276 shows.. the following week, VV dropped to 153 shows and EE increased to 306 shows..

    it’s the movie and content that it very important.. VV might be a slightly diff story, but the screenplay was very weak.. EE is a simple story but with a beautiful screenplay, it became a hit.. now after 4 weeks, VV is out of the cinemas but EE was still had in 177 shows last weekend..

    so now tell me will the no. of theatres a movie gets during its release affect the performance of it at the box offce?
