Kaala faces stiff protests, not released in Bengaluru

Agitators outside theatres were seen requesting the moviegoers not to watch the movie. From flocking the theatre screens all across the country for the first show on the first date, the frenzy among the fans has proved to be a huge advantage for the filmmakers.

Upset over the 67-year-old actor-politician's remarks, the highest film body of Karnataka, Karnataka Film Chambers of Commerce, banned the movie.

In what could be perceived as a shocking setback to the Rajinikanth legend, his latest release Kaala has opened to an underwhelming response.

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.

Barring the state, the film released worldwide today amid much fanfare. Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy had requested the distributor of "Kaala" not to release it in "this kind of atmosphere", but assured that his government would follow the high court order on the issue. "However, personally, speaking as a Kannadiga, I will say that considering the situation in the state, the makers should themselves not release the movie", he said on Tuesday.

The state government's decision to grant permission for special shows for the first two days have also turned out to be a boon for the Rajinikanth-starrer.
