Actor Fahad Mustafa wants you to stop sharing movie reviews online soon after movies are released and let people make up their own minds. He recently shared an Instagram post claiming that movie reviews negatively impact films before they even reach audiences.
the Charge Marriage The actor posted a message on Instagram warning bloggers that “criticism can significantly damage a film.” His post was met with cheers from fellow actors Mehwish Hayat, Sami Khan, Aijaz Aslam and Naveed Raza.
A Twitter user responded to the actor’s post and said if you make good movies, you don’t have to give an explanation. “The work speaks [for] itself,” the user said.
Another said that rewatching a film is quite common abroad, so why do filmmakers ask for different treatment here.
Someone pointed out that it’s not the reviews but the high ticket prices that keep people away from theaters.
All over the world, many movie reviews are shared on the same day as the movie release date. Whether a person is influenced by a review or not is entirely their choice. Bloggers or movie critics who post reviews or comments on movies are just sharing their opinion. If a movie is made for the audience, shouldn’t the audience be allowed to talk about it?
The global entertainment industry is now saturated with OTT content such as squid game, Money theftand sacred games, which raises the expectations of our own filmmakers. Given the hype, cast, and crew of some of our big-budget films, critics sometimes just point out what a big-screen project lacks.
Constructive criticism does not necessarily mean having a negative approach. It can also mean that we want you to do better in the future. We hope that in the future we can be more open to reviews and let audiences decide what they want to watch, read and listen to.
It’s true that we’re a nascent film industry, but that doesn’t mean we have to coddle filmmakers. If someone liked a movie, they should be able to tell, and the same goes for the reverse. Blocking people from reviewing films when they come out will stifle genuine opinions and may not have the positive effect Mustafa is hoping for.
Sometimes it’s nice to read what to expect in a movie and that doesn’t change if you want to watch it.
