It is a fact that watching movies at the cinema hall has become a very hectic task because the overall expense is just too much. This has put the burden on the shoulders of many people that they like to watch the movies but the cost of watching the movie has gone to the next of levels.
As the cost of living has gone high to the next level, it has become a dream for many to watch one movie in two months and forget about back-to-back box office numbers. Hence, even in India where people love movies, they are also not spending the money at all despite some good offers to run.
So how are people watching the movies?
Well, many of the people do wait for the movie to come on OTT which comes just after two to three months of its release. So people think about what is needed for spending money on watching movies at the cinema hall because OTT does resale it very soon.
This shows a lot about how people can even wait to see some of their superstars to watch at home. And some use tricks and watch the same content for free on Moviesda.com 2023 or HDHUb4u. This is what that shows how expensive it is to lead things ahead for the good. These players do impact the overall box office numbers. But it happens overall cost is huge. And it is hard to neglect it after a certain point.
This is what the problem is. The tickets would cost around 300 for a person and if you take three to four members of your family, then the overall cost would be around 1200 INR. And then you have to add another 1800 rs for popcorn and a cold drink. Even if you eat other dishes or drinks, then add another 1500 to 2000. Then the money spent on patrol/cab or parking fees, one can spend a lot of money. It means the overall expense might go to INR 6000.
This is what makes websites like 9xflix and others grow because they do provide something for free. And hence, people think that what is the worth of spending money when it can come for free. This is what cost has done to the people. Because the expenses are huge and managing them is not a small thing to do at all.
What to do?
Well, the answer is very simple. The cost of popcorn and others should go down. And not just this, other things should come down. Because they already make good money, it is better to sit back and work on overall movie expenses. This trend keeps going means things will never come to the level they should be. This is how managing it would be even better. It shows a lot about how Multiplex have to work hard to bring down the cost for the people. This is ethical but as they are making good sums, maybe they would not like this.
