The only reason that Sharada 35mm should be preferred over other theaters specializing in screening A-rated movies is the ambience that it provides. Only Glory
at Mallepally and Lamba
at Secunderabad would give Sharada a run for its money in terms of popularity.
Located adjacent to the Saroor Nagar Tank Bund, this theater apparently runs housefull shows every week. When ardent movie watchers of this area enjoy a prerogative which other hall owners fail to provide. Even Mithun Chakravarty's movies probably get outstanding responses.
The hall is very viewer-friendly. Primarily, the films that are screened here are all part of the contingent that missed the Academy Awards by a whisker. Seriously, ever heard of "Baat Bani Raat Bani", "Gupt Rog", "Sunday Ka Funda" etc? A mere handful of the staggering collection of spicy films that almost ended up winning the Masala Movie Of The Year award at the Oscars. Better luck next time.
The management has taken extensive care to provide portable loos. Shocked? That was exactly my reaction when I saw viewers relieve themselves everywhere around the theater except in the area intended for that purpose. Well, here in Hyderabad, forcing people to pee in the loos is a curtailment of their basic human rights.
Of course, there are a few films that are bereft of audiences in the second half, mainly because all the raunchy scenes have run their course in the first half. If you're bored, too, you can get back to the arrack store neighboring the hall and douse yourself in Gudumba (a local intoxicant) and wait for the next show to begin.
