The full movie of 24 Kisses starring Adith Arun and Hebah Patel, has been leaked on the torrent sites on the first day of its release. The free download of its pirated copy will affect its collection at the box office.
A notorious gang, which is known for its illegal activities on the internet, has released the full film of 24 Kisses even before its matinee show ended on the first day. The website offers six different prints which it claims as the HQ versions. The gang seems to have allegedly recorded the complete film during its screening in a cinema hall at 3.15 pm on Friday, November 23.
Written and directed by Ayodhya Kumar Krishnamsetty, 24 Kisses is a romance drama and it is another bold take after RX 100. Filmmaker Anand (Adith Arun) is not interested in marriage but has a lot of affairs. Mass communication student Sri Lakshmi (Hebah Patel) falls in love with him but splits from him after learning his ideology. The rest of the story is how he wins her love back.
The movie 24 Kisses has opened to mixed response from the audience and critics, who say that the director has taken a silly storyline and failed to make it convincing. It is a bland and boring romantic drama, which goes wrong in every aspect. Adith Arun, Hebah Patel, Rao Ramesh and Naresh's performances are the saving gracing.
24 Kisses is a small budget movie. But the makers have promoted it on a very clever note and created a decent enough buzz for this film, which is expected to make a decent collection at the box office on its opening day. However, the negative word of mouth would surely take a toll on its business on the following days.
The negative buzz might keep the audience away from the theatres, as they may think spending money on 24 Kisses is waste. It might even make some hardcore movie buffs resort to downloading its pirated copy instead of spending their hard-earned money on the tickets. If it happens, the piracy will surely affect its collection at the box office.
