With the advent of online streaming platforms, the traditional cinema experience has evolved, bringing both opportunities and challenges. One such platform that has garnered attention, is iBOMMA. While it claims to provide a convenient and accessible way to watch films, its impact on the industry has been a subject of heated discussion. Some of the Telugu film industry producers tried to stop the website using a legal route. But, now iBOMMA Warning to Telugu Film Industry Producers and released a note.
A screenshot has surfaced, appearing to be an iBOMMA warning note to Telugu film producers, and it’s being widely shared on social media. In essence, the message seems to be a response to a recent film producer who attempted to take legal action against the iBOMMA.
Note: iBOMMA Warning to Telugu Film Industry
Considering the matter in the iBOMMA Warning note released…
iBOMMA Warning note reads, “If you focus on Eyeball, we will focus where we need to.” iBOMMA letter further informed that the producers focus only on the pirated sites but not on the audience who record films in the cinema and also raised concerns over the exorbitant ticket prices. It stated that the audience is now reluctant to watch the films in theatre because of the high prices.
According to iBOMMA, if the actors and actresses stop charging high remuneration, then ticket prices will decline. It also urged the producers to stop spending so much on the abroad shootings and trips of the stars. It questioned the Telugu producers about how much remuneration they provide to the production and the other crew.
Focus on piracy sites that are releasing camera prints rather than on the front side. Vijay Deverakonda (Khushi movie released online) does not like to sacrifice another hero in the battle of the film industry.
The iBOMMA further said in the note that the makers mount an unnecessary budget and then the distributors and theatre owners raise ticket prices to recover that money. In the end, it is the middle-class people that suffer. The iBOMMA note ends with another warning that informs, “There’s nothing more dangerous than a man who has nothing to lose.”
Some of the points raised by the iBOMMA are valid. To this end, some comments are being made to support them on social media. At the same time, how much is this warning letter? Has the actual piracy site been released? Or the people who are angry with the Telugu film industry in their name? There are many doubts rising. Let’s see what happens next.
A social media user tweeted a screenshot of this note and wrote, “iBOMMA warning to Telugu Film industry.”

Piracy Streaming services have become more sophisticated, making it challenging to curb piracy effectively.
