Sequal of my Previous post. What lesson Ra One taught to Bollywood ?Dj | November 3, 2012, 8:21 AM | 23 comments | 0 views
November is a very Significant year for City of Bollywood and King of Bollywood. It was the same month when City of Bollywood (Mumbai) got biggest scare on its face and that is 26/11 attack. It was the same month when King of Bollywood (SRK) got the biggest scare on his face and that is Ra One. So here you are. Mumbai was attacked by Raavan’s (Demon=Terrorist) and SRK was attacked by Ra One. But as the say every dark cloud has silver line. These 2 event also taught some lessons. I don’t know how much Security agencies learnt from 26/11 attack but bollywood suerly learnt some lessons from Ra One and here is the list.
1- You can’t take Viewers for granted anymore – If you think just because you are a big star Viewers will take any shit from you the sorry it wouldn’t happen.
2- Promotion can’t help a crap – I haven’t seen a film after Ra One which is overpromoted.
3- Promotion can backfire – Almost all are agreed on this point that it is better to keep expectation low.
4- Indian viewer still prefer Dil over Dimaag – If anyone think style and Special effect can make a film work then it is wrong. You should have a story which touch a chord to viewers heart.
and last it gave Ajay devgan a belief that he can take on SRK-YRF combo.
PS- Below is my previous post that titled Ra one is a pice of shit.
First thing..You Must say sorry to millions of your fans, even to all, who watched this crap. There is nothing wrong to admit your mistake. For the first time i felt ashemed to be your fan. I am not too mush into movie watching, but this is the worst film i have seen. I am saying again this is worst film i have seen of any actor in any language. Even not a single miniute i felt good in the theatre. SRK you said yourself this is not just a film. This is your dream and if your dreams are so cheap then there is something wrong with you. You are working in the industry since 20 years and you took 2-3 year to make this crap ans didn’t knew that what was going wrong with the film is very sad. I read all bashing and trashing of Ra One everywhere. So i went to the movie will very low expectation, still it exceded my worst expectation. You won’t belive but it is true that when end credit rolled i didn’t came out from the theatre with other viewers just because i was afraiding to listen abuses. Shahrukh you and Ra One deserve every abuse, every bashing what you are getting. Some people are saying Ra One is not that bad and the films, who were worse then Ra One, is getting bigger success. I don’t care about other stars films. Ra One was the biggest film and a cherished dream of my most favorate actor. Before release i defend every criticism of this film with tooth and nail. In return you gave me this peice of shit. Shahurkh when going gets tough (read Salman-Aamir) tough gets going. But you are coming with MNIK and Ra One. I mean MNIK was tolarable but Ra One. Seriously SRK you owe a sorry to all.
PS – First and foremost you owe an apology to our Milind Babu. Before knowing milind in NG i think that i am your biggest fan but now i can say milind is your biggest fan and just because of you and ra one he is not coming on NG that often.
PS – Though i am very angry with you and ra one. I still don’t loose hope. You have done so much to entertain me. But if you do another film like ra one then i will quit and mind you i am not Mamta benarjee who give false warning.
