Rajinikanth requests film critics to review film on the fourth day of its release

"Give a film its breathing time!" Rajnikanth requested the critics.

Reviewing a film is everyone’s cup of tea these days. From film critics to moviegoers, reviewing a film within the opening weekend of its theatrical release has become a habit for everyone. Though it’s film critics’ duty to watch a film and review it, normal movie lovers take to social media like Facebook and Twitter to write reviews of the film within the opening weekend.

In an interesting message to film critics, legendary Tamil actor Rajinikanth has requested the film critics to review a film only on the fourth day of its theatrical release. He also asked the people to avoid using hurtful remarks while reviewing a film. Thalaivar was in Chennai to grace the audio launch event of Vikram Prabhu’s upcoming Tamil film Neruppu Da.

Speaking at the event, the 2.0 actor said: “Making films is our responsibility. Reviewing movies is your duty. But how you communicate while criticising a film is important. Don’t pass any hurtful remarks. I would request you to use proper words while registering your thoughts on a movie.

I understand that reviewing a film is your freedom of expression. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. But give a film its breathing time. Please review a film on the fourth day of its release. Let the movie be there for three days at least.”

Neruppu Da stars Nikki Galrani in the female lead. Written and directed by B Ashok Kumar and jointly produced by lead actor Vikram Prabhu, Esakki Durai and R K Ajay Kumar, the film will see Vikram Prabhu donning the role of a Rajinikanth fan—a fire fighter. Interestingly, the film’s title Neruppu Da was taken from the popular title of Rajinikanth 2016 blockbuster Kabali.

Neruppu Da also stars Varun, Nagineedu, Aadukalam Naren and Madhusudhan Rao in supporting roles.
