MOVIE-BUFFS IN Gujarat may not be able to watch Fanaa and the controversial Da Vinci Code eludes audiences in half-a-dozen States where the film has been banned but the CDs of the movie are freely available on footpath in the Capital.

You don’t need to worry about the quality of the CD as they run quite smoothly. At several places in the Capital, the pirated CDs are being sold on the footpath and the sellers keep a mini television set and VCD player to give you a test run so that you can ensure the quality of the CD also.

This is unlike the pirated CDs obtained from the video libraries that arrived within a couple of days of a film’s release but often have poor audio/video quality.

“The CD wouldn’t give you any trouble,” says a boy selling scores of CDs of latest Bollywood flicks on the footpath near Dak Bhawan on the Maida Mill Road. “It’s my office and I copy the CDs here and you can watch it on television to check if there is any fault,” he adds pointing towards the tent where he keeps his VCD player and TV set.
