    Vishwaroopam - Why all this fuss?

    I have watched this movie and my short review is here - http://www.myfiatworld.in/showthread...ll=1#post13353

    Regarding the controversy, I haven't felt any scene in the movie to be offensive to any community. In fact, there is no reference or portrayal of any community from India.

    Moved all the posts related to Vishroopam controversy to this thread.

    Vishwaroopam - Why all this fuss?

    I feel so bad that I didn't watched the movie when it was telecasted on AIRTEL digital TV. I thought I will watch it in theater but never expected such a controversy. Hope the controversy will be over and the movie will be available in India.

    It's hightime Kamal Hassan shifted to Hollywood so that we could enjoy watching his English movies without any hurdles.

    There is no India anywhere in the movie.
    My son mentioned that a title-card announcing Viswaroopam2 will continue in India was shown in the last scene when Omar escapes in a plane; it seems, Kamal Hassan has already shot Viswaroopam 2 too!

    DTH premiere of the movie has been cancelled due to protest by the exhibitors. I don't think any DTH operator has announced the fresh dates for its telecast.

    Awaiting eagerly.
    Felt 500/- was too much to watch on Airtel DTH when it was released on 10th Jan 2013. Should have spent that money. May be will watch in Delhi this weekend when I will be travelling there.

    Agree Ravi Ji. It will be a loss for India if Kamal moves over to Hollywood. Nothing more to say.

    That's right that at the end they show that Viswaroopam 2 will continue in India. But, I didn't know that he has already shot that too.

    I doubt if it was released in DTH. The charge was fixed at Rs. 1000 not 500.

    Rightly said Ramesh..It was 1000/- for Tamil version & 500/- for Hindi. Since I can't understand Tamil I wanted to watch in Hindi. Till 9th Jan they were promoting it on Airtel DTH. Didn't track if it was released or not on TV.

    the release has been postponed to Feb 1st but now the movie itself banned hence DTH release has been further postponed.

    charges initially were 1000 for Tamil and 500 for other language, earlier it was planned to release a day before actual release in theater hence premium charges asked.

    not sure about the charges now.

    Absolutely not worth it. This movie cannot be enjoyed seeing on a computer monitor or TV. This movie has to been seen in a Cinema Hall. If any one wants to see the poorly recorded video of the movie on a computer screen, he will be the loser of all the joy.
