Stardom in the movie industry is not only determined by how talented the actors are; but also by their command over the so called 'box office', at the releasing day.
If an actor fails to create magic at the box office, the rest of the industry and the audience will easily forget how talented he/she is. We have witnessed the rise and fall of the stars at the box office, at various periods.
A superstar is born when an actor succeeds in surviving the box office ups and downs. Behind each and every big star of our industry, including Mammootty and Mohanlal, there is a great list of huge box office hits and flops.
Quoting Mammootty, The future of a movie cannot be predicted when we read a script. Sometimes, the script will be exceptionally brilliant; but it will lose the charm when it is converted into a film.
But the failure rates of the movies are much higher nowadays while comparing to the earlier days. Lack of good movies, prioritizing stardom over the quality of the film, piracy, etc can be pointed out as the major reasons behind the cold box office reports.
