There are a host of reasons that this theater has been rated 4/10. Primarily, the entrance is concealed amidst a barricade of flats encapsulating the entire hall's campus. And, after a thankless ride into the premises, you are caught between men and machines - all wrestling with the trifling amount of space available. The parkingwallah yells at you to hurry up. You have no choice.
Secondarily, the facade reads Shiva Shakti "35mm". Relax - the hall was renovated last year and now has installed a 70mm screen and a DTS sound system. What's in a name, huh?
You are now inside the hall, and are alarmed at the settings in the interiors. Huge sculptures of Shiva and Parvati, and paintings of Ganesha and other Hindu gods, consume most of the area, instead of the normal movie posters on the walls. However devout you are, there isn't much you can do here. Once on your seat you realize it has been a bad day. First the traffic jam, then getting late for a good movie and having to settle for this one, and now the dysfunctional A/C and the ineffectual sound system (did I hear a DTS early on?).
You have one option of saving yourself from further complications - don't touch the food, and stay away from the loos. Although a placard outside reads "Outside food not allowed", carry your food and water and a few anti-allergents (insect bites result not only in pain but uneasy rashes as well!).

One of the Best theatre in the Kapra Area...Best sound system and Maintaince...Manager Nagamohan is very freindly to Everybody....but the renovation should be done....and A/C is not al all good in summer....
You will not feel like watcheing movie in the theatre but you will feel as if you are peeping the movie from out side,as if peeping the film sitting on the terrace of a nearby appartment from where you can see whats going on in the theatre. Nothing else can be told because to comment we need minimum qualities of a theatre.
Pros: Some what cleaner than radika the neibour Cons: every thing

Its a bad theater to watch any kind of movie. The sound system is horrible. Inside the theater, it smells as if we are in a very old cave surrounded by bats. I was warned by one of my friends.. on not going to this theater, but I went for which i'm repenting now.
