National Multiplex chains delay screening Jailer in Hindi due to hold over clause: see details inside | Hindi Movie News

National Multiplex chains have not screened the Hindi version of Rajinikanth’s film Jailerdue to the hold over clause. The makers were ready to sign the four weeks hold over clause, but national chains wanted them to keep a eight week gap before it is streamed on an OTT platform. Speaking about the same, Pankaj Jaysinh of UFO, which has distributed the Hindi version said, “Fundamentally, the clause is not right – many a times the life of the movie is short in cinemas, but the National chain expects you not to screen the film before eight weeks on the OTT platform.Not only that, they will also halt screening the film in their cinemas after a week or two, but will not allow the producer to screen it on OTT, so ultimately it is the loss of the producer.”
He added, “the correct clause should be about four weeks in cinemas before it is released on OTT, as it is films don’t last for a long time in theatres.”
Jaysinh however, added that the eight week hold over clause only applied for the Hindi version, so National chains have screened the Telugu and Tamil versions of the film.
Jailer has opened to full houses in Tamil Nadu and is expected to continue the same the whole week.
