Ra One not up to the mark....that's what they had to say
Despite its spectacular marketing and equally phenomenal promotional events; Ra.One could not win accolades from Bollywood bigwigs. Though the superhero saga managed to fetch mixed reviews from press as well as public; the B town heavyweights including some of the actors, directors and film makers do not seem favorably disposed towards it.
According to the film maker and husband of chorographer Farha Khan; the superhero of Ra.One did not live up to its mark. In fact, to go by the scathing attack made in one of the social networking forums; the reference of ‘not living up to the mark’ will prove to be an understatement. The film maker who is on the way to launching his three dimensional adventurous fantasy- ‘Joker’; not only found Ra.One funny but also looks upon the same as B town’s failure.
2. Alvira Khan
The darling sis of Sallu mia- one of SRK’s close contemporaries; was equally forthcoming in expressing her sarcastic dig. She simply could not understand as to how someone with the so called superhero status also calls for the protective support of a ‘Bodyguard’. There is little to say about the age old rivalry between the phenomenal Khans. But according to one of Alvira’s close pals it was just meant as humorous exchange between friends; for the beloved sister of Salman hardly wanted to lash out at SRK.
3. Ram Gopal Verma
To go by one of his recent tweets; the maverick director- producer Ram Gopal Verma was given the impression that the power packed saga of superhero was nothing more than a ‘sham’. The director known for his frequent lashing outs against the so called big names of Bollywood; had once come down heavily on the proverbial star struck status of Bollywood. Mr. Verma further clarified the meaning of ‘sham’ and had things straightened to many a ‘dumbwits’ that he hardly had anything negative to say about the movie.
Ironically SRK was quite positive and forthcoming in his acceptance of the so called negative vibes. According to him, he felt pleased and important to be the topic of discussion. After all, it indirectly contributed to the film’s publicity. While everyone is entitled to share his /hers views and one of the premiere facets of the civilized society involves mutual respect of differing orientations and opinions; there is little logic in fathoming as to who and what really does the spectacular director mean by ‘dumbwits’.
