Film Critics

When his film 'Kambakht Ishq' bombed at Box office, Akshay blamed film critics in mainstream media for the failure of his film. Since then I have been reading reviews in Newspapers and Magazines and watching film reviews on TV. There are quite few blogs which review newly released film. I have to agree that there is some truth in what Akshay says. Many of the critics have no qualification except that they are movie buffs ( Who isn't?). Since a movies fate is decided in 1st week, it is important to have some qualification to be accepted as Film Critic in mainstream media. As such we know that in media 'space is for sale'. So far most of the critics are true to their creed. But it is essential that there should be some criteria to be applied to call some one as Film critic. Right now it is open field but its time this is done more professionally.---PK
