Gone were the days when women entering into films used to have thorough knowledge about acting and enacted their performances in best possible way to entertain the viewers thus winning the respect and adoration. Miserable are the conditions today when so called heroines are just made to stand in front of cameras as mere glamour dolls and nothing more. Best example film critics are quoting currently is the entry of Poonam Pandey into South cinema with ‘Malini and Co.’
The film directed by Veeru K is released in multiple languages. So far if the Telugu version alone is being considered, Poonam’s entry proved to be dismal. What can we expect more than quintals of skin show from Poonam Pandey, the attribute which made her so popular? Despite picking an International Affairs topic of Sri Lanka Vs India, how come Veeru K mixed so much of vulgarity and awkward exposing into the script pains those audiences who think a lot!
‘Poonam is wasting her talent by day dreaming of becoming a star heroine without knowing the fundamental acting lessons. In order to grab the audience attention and stay for long time in film circles, she has to be spicier selecting the raunchy item songs. Absence of Mumaith Khan gave shorter shelf life to many item girls these days like Nora Fatehi, Scarlett Wilson etc.
Possessing a hardcore desi sex appeal can be a best advantage for Poonam to exploit the market conditions. She should try in those areas rather than failing as main stream heroine,’ an analyst commented.
