Mithai, a dark comedy that hit the screens last Friday, was panned by all critics. The film starring comedians Rahul Ramakrishna and Priyadarshi as the lead actors has now stirred controversy. A day after the film's release, Rahul Ramakrishna tweeted that he is sorry for doing this film and he was forced to commit to this movie though he was not sure about it. His tweets didn't receive well. He being apologetic a day after the movie's release was slammed by netizens.
Soon he deactivated the Twitter account. Meanwhile, the film's director Prasanth Kumar hits at Rahul Ramakrishna in a sly manner. He wrote a public letter and said that 'if a film is a hit 100 people come to take credit. If it bombs director is the lonely man standing'.
"Okay the verdict is out and My film has tanked, all the stakeholders have lost money. I raise my hand and take responsibility for the failure, somewhere audience failed to connect with the film. Solely my responsibility no one's else's. But at the same time I am proud of Mithai, even when I would have given few hits down the line, when I get old as well I will be proud of Mithai. From the beginning I used to tell to my crew if its hit we will have success party if it bombs we will have failure party. The cast has slowly started to dissociate themselves, which is pretty much understandable if a film is a hit 100 people come to take credit. If it bombs director is the lonely man standing.
I am not lonely my cameraman Ravivarman Neelamegam, my sound designer Sachin Sudhakaranand my music director Vivek Sagarand the direction department are standing with me. So I am not standing alone . It's topic for another day why it tanked and other things...I will be back very very soon , I am down but not out. I still stand by my open letter which I wrote when I started the film. If you care to read you can over here.
Cheers alll. It's been a great journey and I enjoyed each and every bit of it."
