Let me get a few things off the bat first. I have enjoyed watching a multitude of movies here. It is the only cinema in the entire country to host an analog IMAX projector. I was on a high after the screening of Interstellar. Then a few things ruined the experience for me.
I was excited to watch the movie The Hobbit in 3D on such a huge screen! But the film got interrupted midway. I found myself staring at the screen with no sound at all. Azog seemed to shout something at his proceeding army, while I sat in disdain, as my scenes were getting destroyed. Those moments reminded me of watching The Artist. The major difference reflecting with the fact that that movie was amazingly entertaining despite being a silent one.
Prasad’s commands a premium on watching 3D movies on its huge screen. I do not mind shelling out the additional bucks. But why in the whole wide world, have they started charging for 3D glasses as well! Like other multiplexes, they are most welcome to take a security deposit. On the one hand, the glasses are terrible on quality. On top of it, i really do not think that an Indian cinema would go to the lengths of disinfecting and cleaning them even once a month. If that is the case, then I would happily pay out the 8% extra cost for this service.
I truly believe that the managers at Prasad’s should rethink their strategy. I would not be willing to send my clients back with negative thoughts, despite having some good facilities to entertain them.
