Certain things that get my goat at the multiplexes here are [not one in particular but PVR,Satyam,Big Cinemas,Inox..all are same,huh!]
Online booking: If you’re promising us that by booking the tickets online we would be able to skip standing in line at the counter then please see to it that we don’t have to stand in line to collect our online booked tickets! Especially when you are charging Rs. 10-20 under the name of convenience charges!
Of course it is any day convenient to book the tickets online and so far that I remember we haven’t booked the tickets at the counter since ages now. But when I reach the counter to collect my already booked tickets I have to stand in the common line behind the girl who is doing a thesis on show timings,the audi, screen length and sides and the seats,of course! Then there I’m wasting my time,no?
Age Bar:I have come across the notice that pops up before you’re about to enter the ‘book tickets’ area on the site which says ‘This movie is A certified,make sure you’re above 18″ . Okay boss I’m above 18 and I’m following the norms. But when I reach the theater to watch the movie I find so many toddlers who are surely not more than 5 years old accompanying me with their parents!!! How did they qualify to enter?
In violent and adult movies like ‘Aakrosh’, ‘Desi Boyz’, ‘Ishqiya’, ‘Rajneeti’,’Love Sex aur Dhoka’.. and the tpyes how could toddlers be allowed? Where are the rules then ? And if you’re not going to follow any rules then why irritate us on the website by popping age bar window at every stage of booking? I agree that it’s parents’ responsibility first to not decide to bring their children to such movies but if they’re going wrong why you shaking hands with them?
Disturbance:People talking loudly on their mobile phones and that too for time pass and for as long as 10-15 mins! Almost every theater shows a ‘switch off’ you mobile phones ad before the movie is relayed and still people don’t follow it-leave alone keeping their phones on silent they literally pick up the calls and talk as loudly as possible !!! Where is the crew to at least tell these people to take the call outside the hall ?
Imagine a serious scene like ‘Auro on his death bed’ is being played and at that moment a mobile ringer goes on like ‘beedi jailaye jigar se piya’ and the man recieves the call talking things like ‘han main meeting mein hoon jara,ek ghante baad milta hoon, areh koi nahi..woh maal bhijwa do…areh nahi nahi…suno meri baat…’ and the conversation continues till he is satisfied that the person on the other end is convinced!
Cleanliness: You at the entrance door check us all and scan everyone for any suspecting item and rip people off their gutkha and paan masala and cigarette packs but then how some people still manage to whisk them off under your nose and get these things inside the theater and use it?
Imagine cigarette’s smoke in the A/C hall? The empty wrappers of Manikchand under your feet or sometimes even on the seat?
Queue:There is a queue system at your snakcs counter. One has to follow the path to reach the counter and to exit it. So when you have put those ribbon barricades that means people have to walk accordingly right? Then why do I have to have a fight with a boy who is standing behind me in the line and is so eager to buy and rush off-as if we have bought tickets to stand in line at the snacks counter-that before my turn comes in he starts placing his order by simply raising his voice and money in his hands ?
Imagine you are sincerely standing in line and following the queue system and a boy comes from behind you and gets restless of the time taken and literally tries to push you aside so that he can place his order before you,how would you feel ?
All I’m saying is either don’t propagate that you are a high class multiplex and stop charging us that money which we earn with efforts OR follow the rules made by you yourself,every single time,not at your disposal!
