No! You are not looking at people waiting for a darshan at Tirumala. It is a ticket counter of a cinema theatre in Chennai that will play Dasavathaaram, the magnum opus.
Well, this is the scene that one will see at all the theatres of Chennai, including Sathyam Cinemas. Sathyam and Inox did not even dare to open their online booking services for Dasavathaaram. They knew the deluge that awaited them!
Dasavathaaram set new standards in various aspects of filmmaking in India. Now it is setting new records in the ticket sales. In each theatre, there is a long queue that stretches from the ticket counter to the road abutting the theatre.
