After taking the visa for entering this part of the world, you will find this baby on the highway to Vijayawada. You will also find yourself asking whether this theater is closer to Vijayawada than to Hyderabad. We confirmed with the authorities and they insist that it is not. That is, it is not closer to Vijayawada, it is in it.
Being this far from the city has its advantages. Vishnu is considered as the best theater in this part of the town. It is the only towering structure on the highway, standing lonely and proud. With air conditioning, Dolby DTS and a 70mm screen, why shouldn't Vishnu be proud?
Maybe because its seats are cramped. Maybe because the crowds here greet each other by spitting on others. Maybe because the black-ticketeers thrive in these conditions. Maybe because you feel like you will die if you don't go to the John, and when you do, you actually die. Maybe.
All those maybes are the reasons why Vishnu should not feel proud. But it still does. And the people always make sure that it does well. As they say, highways have their own standards.
