Versatile actor Aadhi Pinishetty took digs at film reviews at the ‘success meet’ of his latest film Neevevaro.The mystery thriller has been panned by critics and turned down by ticket paying public alike, which is evident from its disastrous first weekend collection report.Aadhi like many actors and filmmakers has put the blame on reviews for poor reports that the film has generated from its early shows. He stated that the film opened on a dull note because of Varalakshmi Vratam.
“People were busy with puja, which is why the film got below par openings,” he stated.Aadhi also went on to add that the collections have improved later and expressed his happiness as their hard work has been rewarded.What Aadhi has conveniently ignored is that a slight rise in collections on Saturday and Sunday doesn’t mean that the film has been accepted.
In fact, there isn’t much growth in the collections during the weekend as the film struggled to get noticed amid Geetha Govindam storm.Aadhi should have waited until Monday morning to gauge the film’s box office range before passing such statements.Neevevaro is having a dismal first Monday at the box office that makes the public verdict very clear. This wouldn’t be the scenario if ninety percent of entertainment loving audience liked the film, as he claimed.
