Kaanchi, Subhash Ghai’s latest film, received mixed reviews. While some critics gave the film 4 stars and called it spectacular, saying Subhash Ghai was in full form, there were some who called it slow and too theatrical. Sunil Gavaskar, who attended a special screening said, “Absolute pleasure to watch the film. It is stamped with the class of Subhash Ghai and has everything a film lover wants.”
Subhash Ghai has taken the positive and negative reviews from the critics in his stride. He says, “I am yet to remember any of my 14 blockbusters when they were appreciated on very 1st week of the release. None of them was appreciated, rather bashed slashed brutally for its demerits.”
Mr. Ghai says he has made the film with lots of money, pains and passions and he is happy with the quality of content and cinematic brilliance of the film. As for his social media critics, he says “Thank you for love and hate, both as expected. At least you were concerned. Thank you sir.”
While Kaanchi is receiving good and bad reviews, Mr. Ghai is already working on his next script. As the last word he adds, “I treat my failure as postponed success”, saying he will keep trying till he is where he and his fans want him to be.
