Compensate for losses, Malayalam films will not be given to PVR: FEFKA

theatre

KOCHI: Amid a dispute between PVR and Malayalam film organizations, FEFKA announced that Malayalam films will no longer be screened in PVR theaters without compensating for the loss incurred due to the screening. FEFKA general secretary B Unnikrishnan said Malayalam films will not be screened unilaterally on PVR screens across the country in between discussions with PVR and the Producers Association on the virtual print issue.

FEFKA representatives also stated that PVR is behaving like a cartel and questioning the dignity of Malayalam. There are also plans to extend the protest against PVR to the streets. "The matter will be dealt with legally. I have discussed things with the Chief Minister. As PVR's important theaters are located in Lulu Mall, the matter has been discussed with MA Yusuff Ali," Unnikrishan said.

Apart from B Unnikrishnan, Sibi Malayil, Ranji Panicker and Sohan Seenulal were present along with Vineeth Srinivasan, Blessy, Visakh Subramaniam, Anwar Rasheed and Soubin Shahir representing the films currently shown in theatres. Blessy said that even after paying the VPF amount in advance, they were not notified even over the phone that their movie (Aadujeevitham) will be removed from theatres. He further said that their request to screen the movie in other states was rejected.
