Mulk’s IMDB rating suffers from harsh audience reviews, director Anubhav Sinha says he doesn’t care
Actor Taapsee Pannu and Rishi Kapoor’s Mulk has received great critical response since its release on August 3. The film’s treatment when it comes to prejudice and preconceived notions about certain religions is being lauded. However, the film’s rating on IMDB has taken a blow. The film currently stands at 3.5 rating with 3,668 votes. Director Anubhav Sinha was not too happy about this and he took to Twitter to express his frustration.
The director tweeted, “The IMDB rating of #MULK is being attacked. You know what? I don’t give a Flying F***!!! MULK has received too much love to worry about that. There are more people who love the film. They will respond to you.”
The maximum number of votes, which is 71.8%, rated the film 1/10. The harsh user reviews ranged from, “Too slow/boring movie, it’s like Ekta Kapoor’s TV serial, which runs and runs but doesn’t end,” to a more detailed, “Pretty clichéd movie. This tries really hard to be a hard hitting movie but simply isn’t effective enough. It’s really hard to see a great actor like Ashutosh Rana reduced to a caricature lawyer. Taapsee Pannu must have done multiple viewings of Pink to prepare for her role but doesn’t come close to Amitabh. Rishi Kapoor is okay. So are others. Pratik Babbar has grown chubby. Music is weak. Take my advice. Watch KK Menon and Rahul once again in Shuarya instead.”
