Average is the one word that aptly describes this twin of Sensation. The seats are not too bad, the legroom available narrowly misses the 'ample' qualification, the cleanliness quotient isn't too bad, the toilets are nearly good, the snacks are almost reasonable, the parking is almost expensive, the sound is just short of ideal, and the air-conditioning cools in installments.
A theater that caters primarily to the neighbourhoods of Khairatabad, Lakdi-ka-Pul, Chintal Basti and Masab Tank, Meera has mostly SEC B and C crowds who several times need physical persuasion to stay in a queue and who wouldn't mind making women feel that they are quite desirable. The staff is used to dealing with such people, and is unlikely to have read editorials on how India is riding the wave of a surge in services, so it's ambitious to expect normal courtesies.
All kinds of Telugu movies are screened at Meera, but it's mostly new releases, with fan clubs of popular actors putting up vivacious banners on the day of release. Yes, as you've gathered by now, this is a pucca
mass theater. Like in any mass theater, you'd have to stand in a raucous queue and leave the results to the Lord if you want tickets on the opening weekend for a big release. Or buy from a black-marketeer and pay the price for the sin in your next birth.
Meera has crowds but lacks class. You'd get here only if you want to save 30 bucks on the ticket price or desperately need to catch the film showing here, for Prasad's
is exactly half a kilometer from here as the crow flies.
