Nobody can deny a fact and an observation. We just reflect on the facts that stats indicate and don't have any kind of personal gain from writing any kind of news story.
Having said that, we have to be able to make our case and voice our concern heard too. Yes, concern.
Even though it is hard to believe that a film website cares about a good film, unfortunately, these days, we do. We care about the box office results of good films and try to help the good word spread as much as possible.
But Rakshasudu, even though could get good reviews, positive Word of Mouth, the movie isn't collecting as well as people expected it to. In Tamil, many audiences regard Christopher as a cult villain and rate Ghibran's score as iconic achievement.
