Malaysia : Sivaji The Boss FDFS Celebrations
June 14 9.00 pm was the first day first show in malaysia in 5 theatres, PJ state lotus, Colesium, Damansara cineplex and sentul cineplex. I managed to get tickets for the first day first show through my fren in lotus in PJ state. Good news is, this is rajini sir's 0 tamil movie and i managed to get 100 tickets.
We all went early, and started our coverage. I gave a briefing to our group members who came and explained about our group and our activity. Than with the help of pal and yogz, we started the video coverage, We managed to interview the public on their opinion on sivaji and thalaivar. Annother good news, one of our group members who took my invitaion and joined us did have a fren who is a Rajini sir look alike. We did invite him and he came in the baasha get up. We did a coverage on him and the few of us including me took photos with him.
Almost around 9pm, trouble started. Movie reel did not arrive from Tamil Nadu on time and movie is delayed. By that time, the public had already known that we are from fan club and were expecting us to talk to the theatre people, which we did. They promised to start the show at 9.30pm. Everyone waited and they announced 9pm show is cancelled due to unavoidable situation.
That is where me and two other important members in our group who assisted me a lot went into the office and had a very long discussion with them. It was me, pal and yogz. The reel only arrived at 12 midnight. We pressured them to open their second hall and show both the 9pm and 12am show simultaneously. At last they did. This is when the public was seen thanking us. Its a joint effort by me and the two others.

I went to watch Sivaji The Boss on Thursday (14.6.2007) at 9pm…. they open the ticket counter around 1.30pm… by 3pm..the ticket for 9pm and 12.15am show already sold out…. I queue up nearly 40 min to get my ticket…
I reach cinema around 8.20pm to watch 9pm show… firstly they said, the show will be late 30min, at 10pm thy said there will be no show coz they haven’t receive the movie reel from the distributor….
They (management) should not have sold tickets without receiving all the prints from India. … finally after few hours, fans allowed to enter the hall at 12.05am(15.6.2007) only for those bought the ticket for 9pm show… show cancelled for those bought ticket for 12.15am show… really a bad day for me..
Here are the clips and some photo that I manage to record :-)
