One sees these cheap posters for "A" movies on so many walls around…

Who does go to a 11.15 am show to watch what I think is soft porn? I am sure there is an audience, as these posters have been around for so long…what’s the budget for such movies, how much do they make?

Yaamini Sundari…."Beauty of the Night"…indeed…no, I would never go to a theatre to find out more! Do such films also pay entertainment tax?

  1. I have always wondered about this. There’s a theatre on old airport road outside which I had seen such posters. Wonder if they get a lot of audience and how they escape the eye of the authorities. Also on my recent visit to agra I saw movie posters with sleazy names like “vilayathi jism” and “junglee love”. It’ll be good if citizen matters delves into this issue and comes up with a detailed story.

  3. There are a number of theatres in the city screening porn movies, many near the KR market bus stop. Most of them put up a poster of a newly released mainstream movie at the theatre, but they actually screen pornography. It would be good to find out about the tax bit. A friend who did a story on the same found that they start off by screening a regular movie and then change the reel. The movie supposedly isn’t an Indian one. Wonder how they get away with it
