Tweets also suggest that the film was uploaded at 5.28 am in the morning with many fans asking producers to take strict action against Tamilrockers. Some of the anger dissipated by the afternoon in Bengaluru as screens operated by Inox Cinemas screened the film.
Media sources say that Kaala, which released in over 1,800 screens worldwide on Thursday, has had one of the lowest-recorded openings in recent times for a Rajinikanth-starrer. "While shows from today to Sunday will eventually be packed, the thing to note is the pace at which the tickets get sold and the number of screens potentially showing the film". While fans are enjoying the release of the much awaited movie, here's another reason to celebrate.
A day after the Karnataka High Court ordered the State government to give police protection to theatres screening the film, the Madras High Court and the Supreme Court refused to stay the release of the film, which has been facing legal and political hurdles.
"This is HUGE! #Kaala is the FIRST ever Indian film to be released in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia!", Wunderbar Fims, the production company owned by actor Dhanush and his wife Aishwarya said on Twitter. "By end of day we had about 50 screens and we are confident of another 125 screens showing it from tomorrow (Friday) morning".

Amid high drama and police cover, Rajinikanth's Kaala was screened in many parts of the state, including Bengaluru. Even the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) is reportedly disappointed with Thalaivar over his comments on Cauvery water issue. "We were concerned about the damage that they could cause inside the theatre".
Activist Vatal Nagaraj told NDTV, "Kaala must not run". They were released later. "How can we stop the release?" the bench said.
With the good reviews coming the film's way, the collection of Kaala is expected to improve in the next few days.
