Well, the teaser of Bala’s upcoming film Naachiyaar is getting a mixed response. While netizens and celebrities including Anurag Kashyap lauded GV Prakash’s rustic look and performance, one can see a lot of criticisms on Jyothika for mouthing a cuss word at the end of the trailer.
Meanwhile, a section of audiences says Bala would’ve justified the particular dialogue in a demanding situation in the film and not just for namesake. They also say what’s the big deal? If Ajith can get a thunderous response in theaters for mouthing cuss words in Mankatha, why not Jyothika?.
Since Tamil audiences have seen Jyothika in dignified characters (Gautham’s Pachaikkili Muthucharam is an exception, the film is a flop), they cannot accept this shocking revelation and would never expect her to say this swearword. After all the teaser will be watched by kids and families!
Critics feel that since YouTube is an open platform, such explicit dialogues can’t be controlled but in the theatrical version of the teaser, censor officials would mute it.
