There Is Just One Comprehensive Survey – The Box Office
one more fraudulent survey, many more manipulated awards and a volley of critical abuse for an extremey popular film released last week force me to write this piece.
let me reiterate once again that all surveys and awards are nothing but frauds, pulled off on the unsuspecting reader. they are all conducted as a commercial deal and whichever actor/production team is willing to have an arrangement (of dancing at an award, providing editorial material to the paper, having deals for paid stories that all newspapers/magazines/channels have) gets these awards and comes out tops in the surveys. even the reviews are carried in the same media outlets and the writers/presenters have clear instructions from the marketing team through editors to praise some films/stars and bash others.
offcourse these magalomaniac media magnets that mint money both from the film industry and the reader/viewer can get away with this fraud because many idiots (at last count there were more than 3 idiots) think their ‘SUBJECTIVE’ views are a better judge of ‘UNIVERSAL’ quality than ‘OBJEVTIVE’ data. offcourse these very ppl get agitated when another actor’s lobby tries to prove him better than the fave of these idiots. so much for their subjective parameters of quality.
only a fool with low self confidence in his intelligence levels will believe that a critic/award jury member is more intelligent than him to believe in them. the latest farce of ndtv survey listing 15 most popular actors (having the likes of ranbeer and shahshi kapoor and missing out on akshay, putting dharmendra below much less popular actors) is just another proof of what i have always maintained.
not that boxoffice is a perfect way to judge popularity of films/actors but it is the best available so far. yes it can falter especially if you take the ‘REVENUE’ route raher than the ‘FOOTFALL’ route which are the real indicators of popularity of a film/actor. many actors who are liked by much more ppl but with less spending power buying tickets cheaper than their richer counterparts are at times underestimated in the ‘REVENUE’ based analysis. its the ‘Footfall’ route only that can give us a clear picture of the most popular actor/films.
so junk al the surveys, dump all the awards, trash all the reviews. the most popular film/actor is the one that sold maximum tickets.
