Watch: I Respect Critics and Their Ratings

Director Maruthi has scored a massive hit with “Prati Roju Pandaage” starring Sai Dharam Tej. The entertainment quotient worked big time and the film clicked with the general audiences. It gave Maruthi a much-needed boost.

The film has already crossed Rs 20 crore worldwide share in its first week and is heading towards a solid hit.

Elated with such massive response, the director said that he knew it would click with the audiences but admitted he didn’t anticipate this much success. 

“Prati Roju Pandaage” didn’t receive glowing reviews. The aggregating rating for the film was 2.75/5 meaning it was just a passable entertainer. But Maruthi says he was aware that the film would not get beyond 2.75 ratings.

“There are films that would work with the audiences more and there are films that appeal to the critics. Some films might work for both the audiences and the critics alike. Geetha Govindam and Jersey were the best examples. My ‘Bhale Bhale Magadivoy’ also received great reviews and it succeeded at the box-office as well,” he analyzed the pattern of ratings. 

“I respect critics and value their opinions. I read them and correct myself. Critics are like schoolmasters. We prepare well for the exams only when teachers evaluate us. Likewise, filmmakers also need a recheck,” he said.
