In the latest development on the broadcasting of Kamal Haasan's new movie, Vishwaroopam, on the DTH platform before its theatrical release, Tata Sky has agreed to join the five other major DTH players to air the movie, said Haasan. With this, all the six private DTH players in the country would be airing the movie a day prior to the theatre release.

That's great to know... Sun Direct telecasting the movie in HD format as well. At Rs. 1000 , watching movie in HD format looks reasonable for more than 3 family members ... Hope every DTH follow the same.

Kamal Haasan is up against protests by theatre owners ever since he decided to release his forthcoming film 'Vishwaroopam' on DTH (direct-to-home) platform ahead of its release in theatres. 'Vishwaroopam' will be premiered at 9.30 p.m. on six DTH platforms January 10, a day before its release in theatres Jan 11. It will be available on Airtel, Sun Direct, Dish TV, Videocon, Big TV and Tata Sky.

"You can't ask a farmer to stop farming just because he said 'no' to traditional ploughing and 'yes' to tractor. I consider myself a farmer in this case, because DTH is my tractor and since I've adapted to change, I request not to be stopped from farming," says Kamal.

'Vishwaroopam' is written, directed and produced by Kamal Haasan -- he also plays the lead role. The film also features Andrea Jeremiah, Pooja Kumar, Rahul Bose and Shekhar Kapur in prominent roles.

"The film will be screened on January 10 in all six DTH platforms. The digital video recorder (DVR) will be disabled by all DTH providers to ensure there is no piracy," added Kamal.

theatre owners in TN only opposing kamals move. Throughout india producers will follow this for sure. Theater owners in other states are not opposing.

in TN Coimbatore , Salem , Erode theatre owners are with Kamal , mainly Chennai theatre owners are opposing...

any new tech. will receive this kind of response only. But for sure it will be accepted on longer run. Its inevitable.

People said computers will take away human jobs. Even mobiles, internet and satellite tv received many opposition. But can we imagine life without these things today.

Screens in Tamil Nadu full on January 11, when the release is scheduled

Chennai, Jan. 2:
Kamal Haasan

Chennai: Amid stiff opposition to the release of his movie 'Vishwaroopam' on Direct-To-Home (DTH) format, actor Kamal Haasan today complained to police he has been receiving threats that the movie would be pirated and power supply to the cinemas screening it will be suspended.

"I have been receiving threats that the film will be pirated and electricity supply to the theatres which have decided to telecast it will be suspended. Since these are against the law, I preferred to lodge a complaint with Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order)", Mr Haasan told reporters in Chennai.

The 58-year-old actor, also the movie's director, sought the state government's help and met Home Secretary R Rajagopal, sources said.

The Rs 90 crore movie landed in controversy after the actor decided to release it on DTH platform on January 10, a day ahead of its release in cinemas.

Though several theatre associations, including Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners Association and Madurai- Ramanathapuram United Film Distributors, threatened not to screen the movie, Mr Haasan said the film will be released across 390 theatres.

He described the move as an "evolutionary growth" and insisted it was the "way to go forward".
