Chennai: The Tamil Film Producer’s Council (TFPC) is liable to stop the releases of most recent Tamil movies for around three months to make movie pirates out of business..
On Sunday, at the general body meeting of TFPC, a large portion of its people chose that the best way to stop the issue of of video piracy is to stop releases of films for at least three months.
“Piracy will naturally stop when there’s no substance. When we stop film releases, say for three months, the picture privateers will go bankrupt. We are researching this alternative in light of the fact that film makers have endured intensely in the most recent 24 months,” Kalaipuli S Thanu, TFPC president told IANS.
“We haven’t finalized on the choice yet. A determination has been passed yet we’d like to examine the thought with all the parties included and just when discovered useful for everyone, will we actualize it. It’s going to take eventually,” he said.
He also said need to be taken to grow better advanced projection.
“Since all movies are being releases digitally, its getting easier for film privateers to copy content. We need better computerized projection measures. We will examine with companies, for example, Qube and UFO to address this issue too,” he said.
The idea to ban release of films almost instantly has come as a stunner to the Industry.
“Piracy has turned into a hazard, yet ceasing the releases l of movies is not an answer. Movie producers are now attempting to discover a suitable window to releases their movies, and now this venture to stop arrival of movies will exacerbate it,” a main maker told IANS.
“Every Friday, at least three Tamil movies are releasing in silver screens. In the event that you stop arrival of movies for three months, we are keeping down around 36 movies. Post the ban, these 36 movies need to fight it out with more movies for releases, which looks incomprehensible,” he said.
Movie producer Cheran, who a week ago released his new Tamil film “Jk Ennum Nanbanin Vaazhkai” by means of immediate to-home and DVD, said its the “best alternative” accessible to stop Piracy.
“In original DVD of Newfilm is accessible for Rs.50, why would anybody anyone think of buying a pirated copy? We all know the nature of pilfered prints. I’ve sold about Rs.10 lakh DVDs of my film in the first two days,” he said.
“I don’t mind if one people purchases and shows to it to his entire family. The length of people don’t watch pilfered adaptation of any film, I’m cheerful to release my movies on DVD. Most family units today have admittance to advanced TV, so new movies can be release by means of immediate to-home medium also,” he included.
Cheran has arrangements to release his film “Arjunan Kathali”, which has been lying in the jars for long time, utilizing the same model.
He has also floated called Cinema to Home (C2H), to encourage the release of movies directly to home.
