I've never released anything in theaters, but I'll give you my two cents.
I'll say it's a safe bet to have a 4k camera (whatever camera fits your needs) if you're truly concerned about resolution, but keep in mind most people not in our little niche can't tell the difference between true 1080p and 4k even on a theater projector. You can rent instead of buy for your movie, but I don't know the rental houses available in India.
Focus on the story, characters, etc. and don't get into the 1080p vs 4k debate. Plus, if you have a dedicated DP on set let him worry about those small details.
I don't know any recent movies on the top of my head strictly filmed in 1080p, but don'the let the resolution be the obstacle to achieving your goals. A 4k release is not going to make you one of the big boys in Hollywood (or Bollywood). Heck, the Blair Witch Project was released in under HD in theaters and people still enjoyed it.

Good luck on your movie!
I hope everything goes as planned!
Unfortunately, the platform of YouTube is focused mainly on the personality of the creator and entertainment they provide, not necessarily on the knowledge/advice they give. I respect both Ryan Connolly and Simon Cade, but basically whatever gets views, they will make more of.
Also, "Losses" was created when they were still new to filmmaking, so it's not fair to compare it to other short films.
And I recommend watching "Proximity". It's not bad, but it's done well for a short film and shows what Film Riot is really capable of... besides the dialogue could use alittle work.
Is this gear heaven?
Does the new update still require installing QuickTime?
I was told to uninstall it since Apple stopped its security updates.
For the price point, I would recommend the Panasonic GH3 over the T5i or T6.
The GH3 has focus peaking, 1080p at 60fps, higher bit rate, a headphone jack, longer battery life, and many more that the t5i doesn't have. I have used magic lantern on the t3i (I'm not sure if it's the same for the t5i) and personally, it doesn't work that well for me.
I don't know much about the GH3 since I've only used it twice, but I can tell it has a massive difference than the canon dslrs.
Also, I should mention the GH3 allows you to use the viewfinder while in live view, which I find frustrating that dslrs don't have because of the mirror.
