Eduardo SaverinOct 3, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The much anticipated movie on the Facebook story, ‘The Social Network’ released on October 1 and the web is now abuzz with the reviews of the film. Though the critics have given the film a mixed response, several bloggers have also posted strong comments about the film that tells the story of Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin, the co-founders of Facebook. While many claim that Mark Zuckerberg’s relationship with Eduardo Saverin was portrayed wrongly, some feel that the movie creates a monster of the Facebook co-founder who recently went up on the Forbes list.

The film shows that it was Eduardo Saverin who helped out Mark Zuckerberg to create the web phenomenon called Facebook but soon was ousted from the credits. The film shows that he showed trust in his friend Mark Zuckerberg’s idea and funded the project. Reports suggest that it was Eduardo Saverin who gave inputs for the book ‘Accidental Billionaires’, on which the movie is based. The film has received some harsh reviews from some media men. One of them said that the film proves how clueless Hollywood is about the Silicon Valley. Another felt that it was an ‘anti-geek’ movie that vilifies nerds.

The film has been received well in the box office and has toppled ‘Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps’ from the top spot in terms of box office collections. The film was scheduled to be released two weeks later on October 15 but the producers decided to avoid the crowded middle of the month. The film has reportedly raked in a whopping $8 million over the weekend.
