Tickets for Sivaji- sorry too late, see you in July
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
June 11, 2007
It was just the crack of dawn but the crowds were there, the queues were long and excitement was in the air. Who knows, those at the front of the queue might have been waiting there from the previous night or even earlier. No one wants to miss the opportunity of being the first to see the grand spectacle on the big screen.
Sivaji Booking

Advance bookings for Sivaji opened across the city on Sunday the 10th of June and the response was tremendously humungous (sorry, ran out of superlatives), the sort of response only the Superstar can command and this one looked big even by his standards.

The distributors might be struggling to stop themselves from declaring the movie a hit four days before its release, but that’s how things are looking. Go to any theater in the city that is going to release Sivaji and try getting a ticket; that is if you can brave long hours in the sweltering heat, being squashed in a horde of humanity, crushed to the walls of enclosures without losing your sanity or your money and you will find that you will have to preserve your ticket till the very end of June or even later to watch Sivaji in a theater. That’s right, all the tickets for the first week have been sold out in all theaters in the city and this was the report that came in sometime around noon on Sunday. This report being written in the early hours of Monday morning after futile attempts at getting further reports can only assume that the second week would have been sold out by the time counters closed on Sunday evening. So if you have not already got your ticket or if one of your very close relatives (whom you have been praising sky high for the last few weeks anticipating this) is not the manager of one of the theaters screening Sivaji then forget about watching the movie on the big screen in the foreseeable future. July first week might be the best you can hope for.

18 theaters in the city are going to show Sivaji come June 15th. These include Sathyam complex, Abirami (3 screens), Udhayam, Devi, AVM Rajeswari, Bharath, Maharani, Melody, Kamala and a few others. According to estimates that is a combined capacity of around 15000 people. Try calculating the number of people who would have watched the movie by the first week only in Chennai city. All theaters had to make special arrangements to manage the crowds at their premises and the crowds were nothing short of hysteric. People not familiar with this sort of scene could have been a bit shaken; they could have mistaken this for some huge political gathering or festival. They also would have mistaken Rajni to be some sort of deity as the fans were busy conducting Palabhishekam to his king size cutouts outside theaters. This is something that is not seen even on the day of release of other movies.

All this four days before the release of the movie, the phenomenal celebrations that will happen on the first day of Sivaji in theaters will have to be seen to be believed. Even if you have not got your tickets be sure to hang around the theaters, there will be firecrackers and lots of other stuff you will get to see only during Deepavali and Pongal.

4 days to go……
