Salim Khan, a veteran screenwriter and father of actor Salman Khan, said Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is not a good film.
He also mentioned that Dabangg 3 had potential to be called a different film and that Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a ‘beautiful and completely different’ movie.
Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’s Reviews
Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai released with Eid and Salman in the lead role.
However, it became his lowest rating fetcher on IMDb, with a score of 1.7/10.
Directed by Prabhudeva, the film also casted Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda, Jackie Shroff, and Gautam Gulati.
What Did Salim Khan Say?
In an interview with Dainik Bhaskar, when asked if reviewers heard repetitions of Salman’s previous films in Radhe, Salim said in Hindi, “The film prior to this Dabangg 3 was different. Bajrangi Bhaijaan was good and totally different. Radhe is not a great film at all, but commercial cinema has a responsibility that every person can get money. From artists to producers, distributors, exhibitors and every stakeholder should get the money. The one who buys the cinema must get the money. Due to this, the cycle of cinema making and business goes on. On this basis, Salman has performed. Stakeholders of this film are in advantage. Otherwise, Radhe is not that great a film.”
He has also spoken to writers in the film industry. “The biggest problem in the film industry is that there are no good writers here.
The reason for this is that writers do not read books in Hindi or Urdu. They see anything outside and get involved in making it Indian. The film Zanjeer was the Change of Indian cinema. That film made Indian cinema came back the right way. But since then, the industry has not yet received a replacement for Salim-Javed. In that case, what can Salman do? “
Poor Response By Critics
Earlier this month, actor Sangay Tsheltrim commented on the film’s poor response to critics.
He has played the henchman Lota in this film to the main villian Rana, played by Randeep Hooda. In an interview with indianxpress.com, Sangay had said that a small negative reaction is not important.
“The film clocked 4.2 million views on day one, that’s a record in itself. How does a lakh or two trolls matter then? Whatever may happen, Salman sir makes money for the producers and entertains his fans. That’s what is important. I also have people in Bhutan, who tried to punch me down, saying that I have a minuscule role. However, they fail to see the bigger picture. I have learnt from the mega star Salman Khan to not let these things affect oneself,” said Sangay.
Next Salman will appear in Antim: The Last Truth with his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma. He is also scheduled to start working on the third installment in the Tiger franchise.
