BANGALORE: Thousands of Rajnikanth's fans thronged various cinema theatres in Bangalore to watch the morning show of Enthiran.

While people selling tickets in black made a killing by demanding a hefty premium, police fond it tough to clear the crowd at theatres such as Pallavi, Kapali, Bhumika and Nataraj. A few of the policemen were seen chasing the habitual blackmarketeers from the theatre premises.

The police had to resort to lathicharge when the crowd created traffic problems outside Nataraj theatre.

Many people were injured.

While some of Rajni's hardcore fans were seen doing abhisekha to Rajani's posters with milk, others were also seen distributing samosas and lemon rice at Nataraj theatre. However, many fans, who had high hopes, were disappointed.

They said that the movie was just above average. “It has neither a story nor any fight sequence,” said Murugan, who spent Rs 750 to watch morning show at PVR. The technical aspects were appreciated by the class audience though.

Meanwhile, many people, who happened to watch Upendra's Kannada movie Hollywood, found some similarities between the two.

Some people from Sandalwood allege that the distributor of Enthiran has violated the norms of Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC). As per norms, the total number of prints should not be more than 25.

They allege that Enthiran (Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions) is being screened in more than 70 theatres across the state. “We are deploying our people to verify the number of theatres screening Enthiran,” said Basant Kumar Patil, president, KFCC.
