'A film may be lengthy, a film may have a different narrative and a film may boast of some superb technical finesse. However, what matters to me eventually is whether the audience has been patient, intrigued and impressed enough to sit through the entire film and not feel bored', says Madhavan who has just seen the release of his much appreciated supernatural thriller 13B.

With the release of the film, he made rounds of theaters across the city to gauge audience reaction. 'For me, what holds of utmost importance is the fact that audiences aren't leaving their seats till the end of the end credit song 'Sexy Mama'. If they are willing to spend their 5 more minutes into the theater, that means that they didn't mind the two and a half hours length of the film', says Maddy in defense of his film which has been criticized by some critics for it's length.

He agrees that there is no defined rule book that states that the length of a film belonging to a particular genre should be of a particular duration. 'My question is, did the film succeed in having you glued to the screen? If the answer is yes, why complain over a few extra minutes?'

He is happy that the film is managing to find its own audience with some good word of mouth. 'Opening Friday was ok but ever since then the youth has patronized the film in a big way. They have been referring the movie to their friends. This makes me happy as well because it reinstates the belief I had in the subject and my director', says a relieved Maddy who confirms that down south, the Tamil version has already turned into a superhit.

'We knew that in Hindi the opening won't be as huge as Tamil. It's okay because it was meant to be that way. However, the Tamil version YAVARUM NALAM is already a superhit. I have seen it with my own eyes how people are clapping at the thrilling moments. It was a great moment because ultimately, it's the audience acceptance that means everything', says Maddy proudly.
