Kreedom has failed the expectation of the Thala Ajith's fans. The film much touted to be his comeback vehicle has not been upto mark with the expectations of his fans. It is not only but the entire cast of the film that does a bad job with their roles in the film including Trisha and Vivek.
The film is a remake of a Malayalam film Kreedom of the same name. The film which has been released worldwide collected 28 lakhs rupees via its pre release booking. The plan was for the film to be released in 6 screens with four screening per day per screen - making it a total 24 screenings. The first two screening were hugely successful. Word that the film was disappointer spread and the crowds started becoming less and less.
One of Thala Ajiths hardcore fans said, "The title Kreedom is not in accordance with the films storyline. His hardcore fans have been disappointed by the movie. I spent nearly a 1000 rupees to watch the film and it has been a waste of an experience."
In the Mayajaal complex multiplex, the number of shows for Shivaji was reduced to accommodate the film. For the first day of Kreedom's release saw Shivaji being screened only 16 times instead of 26 times. After sensing the poor response to the film, they reduced Kreedom's screening to only four shows a day thus giving Shivaji 21 screenings a day.
A word form the critics was, "Generally hero oriented films have a positive climax. But Kreedom has a negative storyline from the beginning the to end. Vivek's comedy scenes in the film are very boring with some of them going the extent of being vulgar. It leaves me at a loss to understand why actors like Ajith, Trisha and Vivek took up the film in the first place."
The film being a loss has brought down Ajith's market value. His previous few films - Alwar, Paramasivan and Thirupathi - have all not been huge successes at the Box Office. The actor is at present suffering both health wise and also mentally. Kreedom has only added to his list of problems. We hope that he will make a comeback soon before his Box Office credit goes completely.
