Why Tharun Bhascker Blames Critics?


Director Tharun Bhascker isn’t pleased with the reviews of ‘Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi’. He didn’t hesitate to express his feeling on the public platform – ‘I hope I find time some day to sit and write reviews on reviews. They are horrible and unqualified to review a film. I understand that an opinion is like an asshole and everyone has one but a review should be given by a person who has at least done a film appreciation course. Their knowledge about screenplay writing, structure, other aspects of filmmaking are ZERO. Just amateurish’.

Why don’t Tharun Bhascker realize these are the same reviewers who offered positive feedback for ‘Pelli Choopulu’ the film which made him what he is Today? Even he could have been amateurish at some point in some way. Does Tharun Bhascker expect Reviewers to praise everything he does? How could a filmmaker improve if he/she don’t know how to handle criticism?

If Critics are wrong, Why were the openings for ‘Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi’ ordinary in the domestic circuit? Blaming the Reviewers has become a fashion for Filmmakers whenever there are negative reports on their films. Tharun Bhascker made the kind of film he wanted. Does Critics don’t have the freedom to express what they felt after watching that movie? While breaking barriers or trying to set new benchmarks, One should be prepared to face criticism. How did Tharun miss such simple logic?
