Tollywood movie premieres at Digicel IMAX
Digicel IMAX hosted its first Telugu/Tamil language movie premiere last week Saturday. The critically acclaimed movie of the evening—called EEGA (titled Naan Ee in Tamil)—was viewed by more than 200 people, including the Indian High Commissioner, Malay Mishra, CEO of the Digicel IMAX Ingrid Jahra and chairman of the Digicel IMAX Brian Jahra.
Many of the patrons who came from south Trinidad enjoyed a first-time experience at the theatre, where they were treated to specially-made Indian delicacies including pakora, seasoned rice and samosas. Distributors of the movie Dr Kalichand Myneni and Roberts Prashanth Buthapati from the south of India, expressed great satisfaction with the turnout and the positive feedback from the movie. They said they would like to expose more Trinidadians to these films, which are very popular in India now.
Senior marketing officer, Charissa Minty, said, “We at the Digicel IMAX were very interested to showcase great East Indian movies. I was also quite impressed with the graphics and the visuals of the movie and it filled our entire screen, which was great.
With the successful showing of this movie we look forward to working with Dr Kalichand and Mr Roberts in the near future with other films such as these.” With positive reviews worldwide, the producers of the film are reportedly considering a sequel, but they are still very much in the early stages.
