Nagesh’s strange pleaApril 3rd, 2009 - 5:35 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
Nagesh Kukunoor was never like this.
“Hyderabad Blues’ was a path breaking kind of film in the 90s and then later on he went on to make much appreciated movies like “Iqbal’ and “Dor’.
But now he seems to be getting jittery over the release of his film “8×10 Tasveer’ today.
Maybe the fact that his last film, “Bombay to Bangkok’ bombed badly and the fact that ‘Tasveer’ and his other movie “Aashayein’ are stuck for long, has made him so.
He has actually sent an email to all the critics, making an “unusual request’ and asked them not to reveal the end of his latest film, as it’s a “thriller and a murder mystery”.
The mail goes like this:
This is Nagesh. I just want to make a personal, humble and unusual request to you that you not divulge the ending of my film in your reviews.
Given that it is a thriller and a murder mystery, its USP is the finale. I hope to reach as wide an audience as possible and I fear that the revelation of the climax may turn many viewers away.
Thanking you in advance.
Well, this can definitely be called a way of building goodwill. But then our critics are a mean lot. We wonder if this would actually help “8×10 Tasveer’ or “Aashayein’ in the future. -Sampurn Media
