Yesterday on 21st April 2019 the Critic’s Choice Film Awards was organized at Rang Mandir Bandra, Mumbai, where celebrities like Aliya Bhatt, SRK, Aditi Rao Hydari, and many others marked their presence.
Where Sriram Raghavan’s Andhadhun has won the most number of trophies, on the other hand, Aliya has also honored for her movie Raaji.
Shah Rukh Khan has also marked his presence at the event, he was a surprise guest there. SRK has delivered a wonderful speech at the event he concluded: “We filmmakers have fought along to give more credit to constructive and jaded ideas. We search for art, we search for form without the essence of the stories. We find logic and disregard the free-spirit of storytelling. We have to remind ourselves that truth is formless, only untruths are formed. We as film fraternity have to be truer to ourselves, to the stories we set out to tell.”
‘So I request all my critic’s friends here, please don’t be like us Bollywood film stars, and get carried away by what Bollywood succumbed to many years ago – the star system. The star system cannot be the only way of summing up films by our critics. 3 stars, 3.5 stars, 3 and a quarter stars, 5 stars….It’s a film, not a hotel for God sake. With critics sprouting all over, film critic is becoming an endangered species. Please let it not get replaced by consumer service.’
