Prabhu Deva answers to the Zero Rating and His Movie being branded the worst film of 2013

Prabhu Deva's R..Rajkumar starring Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha was released last friday. The movie received a decent opening, But it was the critics who made the movie a headliner, This action flick was absolutely thrashed by the critics who awarded the movie just one stars and some even gave zero rating to it. http://ssmusictheblog.blogspot.in/2013/12/prabhu-devas-film-rated-zero-marks-and.html Amidst all the critical review, the film went on to be the highest grossing movie of Shahid Kapoor beating his previous Kaminey.  The Director was recently quizzed by The Times Of India for the severe rating his movie was subjected to, Here is what he had to say 

I can understand some people like a film, some don't and I respect everyone's views. But there was a lot of criticism when the film had just released. Then Friday, Saturday, Sunday saw a good response at the box office and then when the film was holding well even on Monday, Tuesday and thereafter, we felt why was there so much criticism, especially in Mumbai. If a film is really bad, even we can make out with our years of experience. But here, the audiences are clapping, whistling, laughing... I was so thrilled when I quietly went to theatres and saw it myself.For us, audience is God.

We make films for them and they have proved once again that they love entertainment. I just feel that if people write about a film then they should also write about audience's response.The claps Shahid Kapoor gets during his entry and then throughout the film is amazing and for me, it's important that my hero is accepted because the rest will follow.
