Filmmaker Hansal Mehta has expressed his view that the box office earning of a film is an extremely personal matter and the audience should only consider whether the film was worth the price of admission or not. He further added that box office collections should not be the sole criterion for assessing the quality of a film, as even mediocre films can do well financially, while better films may not.
Hansal Mehta tweeted: “Sometimes terrible movies make a lot of money and good movies make less money”
Hansal was replying to a Twitter user who pointed out the difference between the box office figures presented by a filmmaker and the figures presented by a trade analyst. The user suggested that on some occasions, a producer may share exaggerated box office numbers, while trade analysts may also make errors in their calculations. Hansal tweeted back and wrote, “Bottom line: The box office of a film is nobody’s business. It only affects the people involved in the film in various ways that are purely transactional and essentially private.
He further added, “Stop judging films by BO (box office) numbers. Terrible movies sometimes make a lot of money and good movies make less money. Focus on your experience of the film as an audience and not the collections of the film. Focus on whether the movie was worth the price of your ticket, not whether the movie star should be priced up or down.
Ground level :
The box-office of films is not in anyone’s control. It simply affects the people involved in the film in various ways that are purely transactional and essentially private.
Stop judging movies by their BO numbers. Terrible movies sometimes make a lot of money and good movies less… https://t.co/f4quG4xxcR
