- Reelmonk.com, the revolutionary legal online movie release platfor, is set to launch on July 20 with 15 movies including ‘Nee-Na’ by Lal Jose, ‘Njan Steve Lopez’ by Rajeev Ravi and Compartment by Salimkumar
- Film producers can release and promote their movies across 2.5 million screens of Indians across the globe
Kochi, July 19, 2015: A group of film crazy youths have come up with a novel platform to watch latest movies online, that too legally. Reelmonk.com aims to bring Malayalam cinema to its users’ homes the same day they release in India.
Through Reelmonk, film producers can release and promote their movies across 2.5 million screens of Indians across the globe. They can also see how their movies are performing on a daily basis on a transparent dashboard.
Reelmonk.com, created by Xincoz Labs, is the brainchild of three 22 year olds from Kochi - Blaise Crowly, Vivek Paul and Gautham Vyas and is promoted by Konglo Ventures. “We are set to launch on July 20th with 15 movies for users to download, including ‘Nee-Na’ by Lal Jose and ‘Njan Steve Lopez’ by Rajeev Ravi. An idea that originated over a midnight phone call with a friend is today ready to launch after a long and exciting journey that was full of challenges, setbacks, straight out crashes and amazing moments to cherish”, says Blaise M Crowly, CEO, Reelmonk.com. “Piracy happens due to non-availability of content. When content is easy to access at a reasonable price we believe piracy will take a back seat” he added.
“Lot of effort and sacrifice goes into creating a movie and it is shattering when elements such as piracy, lack of releasing platforms and other issues destroy this work. We want to be a platform where all movies can reach viewers with the click of a button.” points out Vivek Paul, COO, Reelmonk.com. “With connected users, our platform enables movie producers to distribute their content in any countries they choose on the same day as they release in India,” he added.
“During my European tour, I met many Malayalis who complained about their inability to watch new Malayalam movies as and when it was released in India. They also shared that they were forced to watch pirated versions as they had no option to watch them legally,” said Lal Jose, the noted director who is releasing Nee-na through Reelmonk.com in US, Saudi Arabia and other select countries.
“‘Njan Steve Lopez’ could not reach many cinemagoers due to special circumstances in our movie distribution system. Though television channels and DVD distributors didn’t show interest in the movie, many people who came to know about the movie later, want to watch it now. So we are planning a digital release of ‘Njan Steve Lopez’ for people who couldn’t watch it in theatres. We want the viewers to watch the movie on Reelmonk.com and share their opinion of the movie,” said Rajeev Ravi, director of ‘Njan Steve Lopez’.
Noted film director Jayaraj points out to another scope of the venture: “Malayalam movie industry is rich in diversity of great content. I have noticed great interest for Malayalam movies from a global community of movie lovers. Reelmonk.com will give them the opportunity to access the Malayalam movies they love easily, especially with features like pay per download and subtitles”.
Never miss the opening scene of a movie again. With Reelmonk, you control your film viewing experience. With prices starting as low as INR 180 for a movie, Malayalis can now watch the latest films at home through Reelmonk.com
