The universal rejection of Nagesh Kukunoor's 8x10 TASVEER has sent shock waves across the trade and the film industry and has set many a tongues wagging. Media sources are already questioning the super stardom of its lead actor, Akshay Kumar, who just a few months back was being hailed as King Kumar (by the same sections!), overthrowing King Khan, SRK from his pedestal. But the fact of the matter is that in spite of three (?) flops Akshay remains in the top five. And he can only be blamed (apart from Nikhil Advani, of course) for the failure of CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA. JUMBO was never an Akhsay Kumar film, it was an animation flick, with just his voiceover being used to lure in the audience.

CHECK OUT: Akshay completes flop hat-trick!

As for 8x10 TASVEER, although a part of the blame should go to Akshay also (his high price becoming a deterrent) but he cannot be solely blamed for its debacle. The major reason for its failure is being attributed to its budget, climax and poor promotion.

Trade cannot fathom why Nagesh Kukunoor, who is known for making small budget ventures, should have spent around 40 crores in the film. Most of his movies like HYDERABAD BLUES, IQBAL or even DOR have worked only in select centers and that too in a small way. His films have never worked universally and so the logic behind spending 40 crores, and that too in a psychological thriller (which did not require lavish sets) does not make sense. It appears that a sensible director like Nagesh Kukunoor and the Percept Picture Company just went overboard with the thought of working with a top actor like Akshay and so just pumped in money into the project without working on the script.

As for Akshay, we are sure that he will be back in a big way with Sajid Nadiadwala's KAMBAKKHT ISHQ and Priyadarshan's DE DHANA DHAN and shut up his detractors.
