Are Press Meet Scenes Getting Too Routine?

We normally see directors following soms or the other successful trend. Not many can afford to write similar scenes like Rangasthalam as the movie, was more dependent on execution than scenes.

In the same year, Bharat Ane Nenu also became a big hit and the movie had an impactful press meet scene that we can easily say that saved film from being too Flat in second hour.

Now, most of the directors are looking to include at least one press meet scene in their film.

Maharshi had almost 8 press meet scenes in the entire length of the film, and to a point that those scenes dragged the film.

Then, Nani's Jersey ended with a book release scene which can be counted as press meet scene but the director cleverly did not use it for the sake of it.

In Chitralahari, ABCD also we see press meets and some seem useless too. For everything, press won't be running around the famous people.

In any case, ABCD tried to introduce a thread with Vennela Kishore which did not sit into the film well, as a satire on media. It is okay to follow trend but Press Meet scenes seems to be losing the context and impact!
