Actor/Director Pawan Kumar who shot to fame with Lucia and Lifeu Ishtene is busy reviewing short movies. On his Facebook account the Lucia director said that on an average he gets at least 4 requests per week to review short movies. However, the requests are putting the director in a spot of bother.
He said, when he dislikes a movie, he has few options. The first option is to openly express his dislike. His criticism is not taken constructively and the movie makers start a "Pawan Kumar Hate Club" on Facebook. The second option is not be rude and give a few word of encouragement, however that leads to constant request to share the movie. Pawan Kumar also added that ignoring the mail from the movie makers leads to accusations of being selfish, while sharing all the movies begets him the tag of a spammer.
He said, "PLEASE share your short film with me, only if you are genuinely interested in listening to my feedback. I may be completely wrong in what I tell you after watching ur film, I am no expert myself, but you should be open to hearing that and ignoring it if you want. Please don't put me in a position where I wouldn't know how to react. OR don't show it to me at all... go right ahead and share it with the audience. The best of the content always makes its way to the right people. And I will contact you if I like it. If I dont connect to your film, it doesnt me ur film is bad, it just means it didnt work for me... so pls dont start hate club, I too have bills to pay." (sic)
