Inside story of how Uttama Villain got released (stills)

Inside story of how Uttama Villain got released (stills)

Chennai,May 3(TruthDive): Uttama Villain saw the daylight thanks to Studio Green Gnanavel Raja. Around Rs 35 crores were outstanding towards Eros International and financier Jaswant Bhandari.

Uttama Villain was produced by Kamal Haasan under the banner of Raaj Kamal Films on a Rs 55 crore budget. Taking almost one year, Kamal Haasan held the overseas distribution rights and for Kerala. Thirupathi Brothers being on a downslide after Anjaan flop had borrowed heavily from the financiers by promising distribution rights.

 

Uttama Villain Chennai distribution was given to Abirami mall and Madurai to Anbu. Thirupathi Brothers did not anticipate Eros and Bhandari to pull off a last minute discord as it was agreed that the collections from theatres would go to settle their dues. As word spread around that the production house would face litigations,they decided to press the panic button. They blocked the company that was digitalising the movie from delivering the content till the dues were cleared.

As talks moved on, Chandrabose, brother and partner of Lingusamy ‘s Thirupathi brothers called his friend Gnanavel Raja. Raja, a cousin of actor Suriya and Karthi runs a distribution cum production company.  Raja had bought the distribution rights of Vai Raja Vai releasing on the same day of Uttama Villain. Raja in turn called his friend C V Kumar, YNot studios Shashikant and a few others and decided to buy out areas other than Chennai and Madurai and put on the table Rs 35 crores. This is Rs 15 crores more than the market price.  This was made possible only because Raja had trust in Bose.

Uttama Villain is expected to do well in urban areas but might fly over the heads of the mass audience. The two day non release of Uttama  Villain  has resulted in a huge loss.

Meantime,big ticket producers are facing trouble on the financial front. Ascar Ravichandran featured in an advt issued by IOB stating a list of properties that the bank has notified as those will be auctioned. A M Rathinam who lost money on Yennai Arindhaal was bailed out by Ajith who has given him another date for a new film.

With much excitement, the director tweeted on his Twitter page, “In all these years its the first time that my teaser is ready a month ahead of schedule. Now feeling totally restless.

Uttama Villain fails to release in morning shows

Uttama Villain fails to release in morning shows

Chennai,May1(TruthDive):  The fans who arrived to catch the morning show of Uttama Villain were told by the theatres that they would have to wait for the noon show. No reason was given for the cancellation. The reason that is coming from the sources close to the production house is that the director Ramesh Aravind and actor Kamal Haasan had at the last moment decided to cut 15 minuts of the running time of three hours after the screening of the special show. Many celeberties who saw Uttama Villain  and were in awe  felt that the running hours needed to be cut down. Sources say that the cuts that were implemented had to be done across 1500 screens and this took time. The premiere shows in USA and Dubai went as usual.

Trade circles say that Thirupathi brothers the production house had borrowed money from many financiers promising distribution rights of Uttama Villain. Thangam cinemas had given Rs2 crore on the condition that it would be given distribution rights of Uttama Villain and as it was not given to them they moved the court which ordered the production house to give back the money with interest before April 28. Now another production house had given money to Tirupathi brothers and this money was to be cleared before the release. The production house which is closely linked with a top actor with whom Thirupathi brothers had once produced a film and burnt their fingers kept waiting and did not move the courts. As the film was ready for release and there was no move from Thirupathi brothers, the company decided to obtain a stay order. Thirupathi brothers are now in talks with the production cum distribution house to arrive at an amicable settlement.

The film had run into trouble with the theatre owners association President who owns Rohini theatre in Chennai. The President demanded Rs 50 lakhs as bribe to settle a dispute over Kamal’s Vishwaroopam and wanted Thirupathi brothers to pay Rs50 lakhs as compensation to the theatre owners association. Kamal had filed a complaint with the competetive commission alleging that theatre owners and distributors were functioning as a cartel and restricting free trade. Theatre owners association claimed that it had spend Rs25 lakhs on fighting the suit and distributors had spend Rs2 lakhs. Thirupathi brothers paid Rs2 lakh to the distributors association and Kamal withdrew his suit. A sum of Rs 25 lakhs that was given the theatre owners President was deposited with the association after multiplex theatre owners ganged up against him. VHP had gone to court seeking a ban on Uttama Villain and the plea was rejected. Media saw the film at a special screening today morning.

Will Jaya TV spoil Vijay TV award function?

 
Chennai,Apr23(TruthDive): Vijay TV’s 9th film awards scheduled to take place on April 25th at the Indoor stadium has run into trouble with the Tamil Film Producers council (TFPC) and the pro AIADMK channel Jaya TV. TFPC has asked Prabhu Deva and Brindha  who are choreographers of the show to pull out and caravan vans that were used during the rehearsals have left the venue due to pressure from TFPC. TFPC has asked the TV producers and actors union to not cooperate with the channel.
 With only two days to go Vijay TV is put on the burner. The face-off started with TFPC  asking Vijay TV to buy satellite rights of movies as it was cashing in on the award function using film industry’s actors and technicians. An official in charge of buying the movie rights in the Vijay TV skipped a meeting called by TFPC and later when he came there was an altercation in which in which he asked the council to apply the yardstick to Jaya TV too. News reached Jaya TV about this comment. The channel is not sure whether the word of mouth dikat by TFPC would be followed . Performers and other technicians  have already signed a contract.
The attendance of Stars is the key to the success of an award nite. Nadigar sangham the actor’s body has not not taken any stance on it. Vijay TV officials are trying a last minute effort to cool tempers and have the unofficial ban removed. Sources say that TFPC newly elected President came on the promise of championing the cause of the small budget producers who are in a majority. Big ticket films get ready buyers from top channels but small timers are left at the mercy of channels like Vijay TV and Raj TV. Many top brands are co-sponsor and Poorvika mobiles is the brand sponsor of Vijay awards,
