Lucia, thinbeda kammi - Online streaming

Image
Lucia released online! The only "catch" is that it is not yet released in India.



Why watch Lucia?
It is a fresh concept, and an enjoyable movie.It has English subtitles - first Kannada movie to have it.Audience chose it as the best film in London Indian Film Festival. It is an experiment at every level - script, music, cinematography, casting, and above all production too. It is the first crowd-funded movie in Kannada.In the movie hall that I watched Lucia, people clapped at the end. And people were still talking about it when they were walking out. This is not something that happens with other movies, even when they have huge budget and superstars playing lead roles.When you watch the movie, I make some good money. You help me pay my bills - this is the most important reason :-)

Pawan Kumar, the director of "Lucia",  has sent an e-mail to all the online distributors asking us to get a bit more proactive. Now, that sounded like a comment from my manager at office. I never considered myself a proactive fellow. Considering myself a proactive fellow will not change my nature, anyway.

I have shared the link on Facebook, and have asked my friends to share with their friends. But, somehow I feel that friends on Facebook will be more keen on judging me than in watching the movie and judging it! There are about 1300 online distributors. Some of them might have very good marketing skills. There is this top distributor who has done 130 sales already. That is some good money. But this fellow is a very dedicated guy, and I guess he deserves the returns. He has a very well maintained website, and he has been updating it regularly for a while now. I guess he had already generated a lot of traffic there, even before the online release. My secret guess …
