Whenever a movie comes out, people often look at the reviews before they invest their time and money watching the movie. And same is the case with the recent release of Khel Khel Mein which gathered mixed reviews.
And Fahad Mustafa has a little something to say to the people giving these reviews:
This industry needs support 🙏 pic.twitter.com/3tfI0exATv

Fashion journalist Maliha Rehman shared her take on Fahad’s stance:
Journalist Aamna Isani also responded to Fahad Mustafa:
I understand that cinema needs space to regenerate but it won’t survive without strong content. A journalist’s job, to report and review, supports revival & survival. Maybe stop having media junkets and press previews? That’ll at least delay reviews…

People wanted to watch good films:
Aap buri film banao ge aur chalao ge, toh audience is not bound to watch it for the sake of "supporting industry". Audience ko kuch nhi pari k woh industry ko support kare, we go there for the sake of entertainment, aese he bilawajah kharch kare ghareeb awam apne 900 🤦🏻♀️-_-

People wanted to know why Lollywood should be treated differently:
It is the norm in all film industries across the globe so why should our industry be treated differently? And instead of asking critics not to critique the films, wouldn't it make more sense to simply try and make better films?

People believed that the industry needed support in making good films:
This tweet does not make sense at all, if we want the industry to grow, we have to work on it, make better films, not silence the REVIEWS 🙏🏼

There were disagreements:
yup let people be as tone deaf as the film makers about events of 1971, beef jokes, tea jokes, stereotyping. how dare any blogger point out how distorted history is in a movie based on our actual history 😤.
btw how long will these guys ask to support avg movies ?? https://t.co/G80wGJDV2P

People were sharing how they didn’t see any blogger asking people to not watch the movie:
(1/2) With all due respect, nobody wants to give a bad review. Instead of focusing on improving quality, you are asking journalists/bloggers to be ignorant? Haven't seen any reviewer telling people not to watch the movie. https://t.co/roB2eRTXLI

Shots were fired!
If you make good movies you don't have to tweet things like this. The work speaks itself.

People had questions:
So, no one should criticize bad work? Bloggers/ critics should not stop people from wasting their money?

People wanted him to know the purpose of reviews:
You understand how reviews are used, what is their purpose right ? https://t.co/t9r3a6KW5y

People believed that mediocrity cannot to be tolerated in the name of support:
Bakwas. Industry needs to do better, mediocrity can't be tolerated in the name of supporting the industry. It's not like anyone is charging any less to support the industry. Btao, are you doing roles without money? https://t.co/FAusX2Lifs

People agreed with him:
Exactly, Critics should stop reviewing any movie, let the audience decide
I agree Dont believe these bloggers they give lot of fake reviews
Go and watch yourself then decide by yourself

I agree with him on this. Even for Hollywood, some of the films critics did not like at all proved to be highest grossers. One such example is The Greatest Showman. And here for an already weak industry, the fashion journalists turned reviewers can wait for a week or two. https://t.co/Q8XIEkXugT
