It will take time for Indians to watch a multiplex movie
14 August 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Sorry,everybody who choose movie bad and good according to the box office status.I am very sorry for them who watch and comment on movies.Bur the actual thing is that they don't know anything about cinema and the labor behind making cinema.If everything goes right then Mera Naam Joker will be hit as Shakti,Sadma...........and the list is too long to write. But one thing is sure they will feel that they know about cinema. They will raise question about our movies are not getting Oscars. Then guys please watch any foreign movie that got Oscar. But please with some intelligence you will never be doubtful over this question. Have you guys watched movie Draculla in comically presented in Hollywood. Please watch it you will find what Tashan is all about. This is a genius. Everything is brilliant except proper marketing. Those who rejected Tashan made Om Shanti Om super hit (the years biggest hit) as well as Main Hoon Na. I have no complained over those movies. They were also brilliant but properly marketed by Saharukh Khan. The thing I want to say is that Tashan is a pure homage to 80's Masala Bollywood movies where Dharmendra can jump over 10 stored buildings, a canny man like Rajkumar can defeat tones of villains with great body by slapping only. The same critics' applause that made them intellectual best. So my dear audience never judge at your point view but you have no idea of film-making art. Sadly speaking a good movie is proved a good movie when it declares as hit. Tashan is by far the best movie I have seen these days. Just imagine Bijay Krushna Acharya is a fool who made this action movie no my dear he assumes that our Indian audience has improved a lot they can understand the theme of the movie which is parody of all Masala Bollywood movies of 80's .
