New Delhi : The post-pandemic box office recovery has not been as strong in small-town India as it has been in big cities despite some hits like Brahmastra, RRR and Gangobai Kathiawadi. Trade experts and theater owners say these films manage significant revenue, benefiting from higher ticket prices in multiplexes, failing to find an audience in tier-II and tier-III cities. On the other hand, small towns are deprived of commercial mass market fare, with Bollywood’s most recent star vehicles, Vikram Veeda and Doctor Who failing. In fact, many single screen owners say that distributors are either refusing to supply them with films, pushing their business or asking for maximum number of shows for their own film. The same titles kill the opportunity to collect.
