Want to see a latest blockbuster?

Buy a DVD player and rent or buy latest movies at your door. Yes, that’s possible to get any pirated movie DVD here in Bangalore.


People prefer to buy the DVD’s for their advantages…like beating the traffic, see at you convenience at home with family and keep the copy for future screening too… and when such movies are made available on streets openly there is a temptation to buy illegal DVD versions, with two / three movies burnt together on a single DVD and a quick bargain can get the same @ Rs.50-75. Big deal!!

According to a study by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), the karnataka film industry was losing 1700 crores of it’s revenues to piracy. Lot of initiatives of awareness and alerts been happening across India

Despite State Government has promised the film industry that it will introduce a Bill in the budget session of the legislature to curb the increasing audio-video piracy of film songs and sequences.. The Pirated DVD’s of latest films, Film songs and music Albums are made available openly on streets …most of them though are of bad quality (Camera prints) still in demand due to unavailability of films in the remote area’s as the latest are being made available only in the cities top most theaters and off course affordability as an average ticket would cost anywhere from Rs.80 to 150.

    Kannada movies and piracy? With the quality of movies thrown in at the audience, I am sure somebody in FICCI must be fooling around!

    With Moser Bear proposing to come out with Film DVD’s for Rs.30 or so, I believe, end of days for these guys are near.

    Dvd’s Containing 3-4 movies are available at as low as 30 INR. in bengalooru. Recently i bought a DVD of 3 Hindi movies for 20 INR from ahmedabad. Thats time pass shopping before my flight. Just to Kill Time!! The Kannada VCD and DVD’s are much Protected. It’s very difficult to get pirated kannada movies.

    Recently I bought few DVD’s from SP road. The vendor told me that they have all the tools to make a copy. They get the main copy from Nepal , Dubai, Malaysia. After that they make more than 1000 copies of that in Bangalore.

    Well, these are the only vendors where I have located long lost movies like “12 Angry Men” which are pure gems! Would you not buy DVDs from these vendors if they can get you what you want? I was able to get quite a few classics from them whereas months of hunting and “requesting” video clubs produced no result.
