“Thanks giving seem to be the most Pleasant of all jobs, but it is difficult when one tries to put into words.” I owe a great many thanks to a great many people who helped and supported me during my research for the project. My deep sense of gratitude, to Prof. K.C. Prakash for his continued support and guidance. He has always lent a helping hand and been there when needed. I also appreciate and would like to thank the helpful people at IBS Hyderabad who helped me knowingly and unknowingly in one way or the other. At the end I would also like to thank ICFAI BUSINESS SCHOOL and my friends without whom this Project would have been a distant reality.

The capitals cosmopolitan audience was becoming increasingly aware of the advanced cinematic technology that enhances the movie going experience and this had whetted their appetite for watching movies on the “big screen“. To cater to the increasingly sophisticated tastes of the audience Priya exhibitor Pvt. Ltd. totally refurbished the existing cinema in June 1991 including installation of a Dolby stereo sound system. They also gained exclusive rights to screen blockbusters from major distributors mainly Warner brothers, 20th century fox, united international pictures, small wonder etc.
Cinema had become the focal point for entertainment in the capital for both the young and old attracting over 30,000 patrons a week. In fact, “Speed” set a national box office world record of Rs.785000 in its first week of screening at PVR (the highest ever for an English film), which was remarkable considering the relatively low price of a cinema ticket in India.
