Quality of content material issues, and never dimension of the display screen, feels filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.
“The fear is that films meant for the big screen will never be as effective on small screens like TV, Video or phone. 99 per cent of the ardent fans of #MrIndia have never ever seen Mr India on the big screen. And continue to enjoy it on smaller screens. Its the content that matters!” tweeted Shekhar Kapur from his verified account on Wednesday.
The filmmaker’s opinion relating to the standard of content material comes at a time when theatres throughout the nation are closed owing to social distancing rules amid the Covid-19 pandemic and lots of movies, notably small and medium price range productions, are choosing an OTT launch.
Reacting to Kapur’s tweet, a consumer shared: “My daughter love this movie and saying papa why i cant be Mr India to fight against China.”
Replying to this, the director of the Anil Kapoor-Sridevi starrer, which grew to become a superhit on launch in 1987, urged: “I will send your daughter the secret of #mrindia secret formula to invisibility as she grows up.”
The filmmaker has earlier shared his opinion relating to the dying of the “theatrical star system” in a tweet posted on Tuesday.
“Theatres are not going to open for at least a year. So all hype around first weeks bussiness of 100+ crores is dead. So the theatrical Star System is dead. Stars will have to go to existing OTT platform or stream films themselves through their own apps. Technology is quite simple,” he had written on his verified Twitter account.
