Not so much when it comes to box office. He has zero clue about how the box office works

Well he is not taran adarsh...... Actually :pHe is pretty close to judge the quality of a movie mostly........... Judging its collection at box office is not what he does.

True. Taran Adarsh is a trade analyst, not a film critic. Critics' opinions hardly matter (to me).

I am not very sure if it is the first ever zero rating. If I remember correctly he gave 0 rating and 2 thumbs down to the movie "Welcome" and that is one movie which was HILLARIOUS with multiple repeat value.

I wouldn't be surprised if he did that. He considers himself (like most other critics) to the flag bearer of 'intelligent' cinema and snubs anything that doesn't appeal to his 'senses'.

----------

FWIW, he could stick those 2 thumbs up his own.

i think there no need to be mad at a person who's job is to rate a movie according to his senses .....................he will obviously rate it according to his taste. and mostly he is right................obviously he cannot be right all the time (for all the movie goers) if u know a person who is right all the time , please introduce him/her to me.................... even i have disliked some reviews of him,for example i didnt like "ekk main ekk tuu" he gave it 3 starts i think.

your posts suggests that he should try and judge how a movie would appeal to the box office(people) and his reviews should be according to that....??????:laugh: ..........:nono:

Oh well, like I said, he can do whatever he wants. I really don't care. It is just that I can't stand prejudiced people who try to pass off as 'critics'. Even judging from a critics' standpoint, he hardly comes across as someone with enough knowledge of world cinema - not that I have any outside Hindi films either. Like it or not, box office is the true measure of how much a film has been appreciated, as it means people spent money to buy those tickets, unlike most who watch it for free in previews, or download it online.

I don't agree with the box office bit, there have been many films that were box office failures at the time of their release but later went on to gain cult status, via dvds et al.
