HYDERABAD: Producers and distributors have a tense festival holiday when their movie is scheduled to be released during a festive season. It is for no doubt that these days are considered auspucious for something new. But the question is - when there are so many movies releasing together, who does it benefit? This week,  there are four movies releasing together on a festive weekend?  

How many can one watch during his/her day off? Perhaps one or two. Won’t this affect the opening day collection of these movies?

Well, it is clearly on the filmmakers choice when to release the films. Some people delay the release hoping that these days would be profitable and will have an unusual rush in the theatres. But the shock comes when the audience decide to take their pic and exercise their choice.

It is for obvious that people have liking towards one particular star and will watch the movie which has their favourite hero. This will clearly affect the revenue generation model of any movie. Do such bulk releases favour any one?
