Kaala audience reaction: Rajinikanth’s film receives an overwhelming response from the fans

‘Only Thalaivar can do this’: Rajinikanth’s 'Kaala' becomes first Indian film to be released in Saudi Arabia in decades

Agitators outside theatres were seen requesting the moviegoers not to watch the movie. How much this has affected the film's opening, I don't know.

Kaala which recorded one of the lowest advance bookings for a Rajinikanth movie, is the first film after the 67-year old announced his political entry on 31 December, last year.

When Rajinikanth's film hits the screens, it is nothing short a festival and Kaala is turning out to be no different.

As Kamala Cinemas claimed that they were forced by the distributors to sell tickets for a higher price as against the government norms, Wunderbar Films that has produced the film, responded on Twitter, "Kamala & Udhayam theaters have not expressed their consent to the similar terms that's been agreed by other cinemas". Armed with the recent High Court order directing the government "to take adequate steps to ensure a peaceful atmosphere for the screening of the film", Karnataka's film distributors have chose to go ahead with the release.

Also, in the wake of the protest, the screening of the movie has been stalled in Orion mall in Malleswaram, Garuda and Lido malls in Bengaluru central district.

Single screen theatres and multiplexes across Karnataka on Thursday avoided screening the multi-lingual "Kaala" amid vociferous protests by pro-Kannada activists against his remarks on the Cauvery river water issue."We are unable to screen Kaala for the time being despite the security provided due to strong protests against its release by the Kannada Rakshana Vedike (KRV) activists outside", a multiplex official said. Protestors held demonstrations outside theatres in Bengaluru asking fans to not watch the show.

However, two cinema theatres in Ballari and Raichur districts chose to screen the movie. As a result, the Tamil film has taken a good opening in the state.

Earlier, Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy had suggested voluntarily backing off from the release in view of the sentiments of the protesters. He also appealed to the state film chambers in Kannada.
