Why is John Abraham being a cry baby?

The actor of I, Me Aur Main was heard bawling about the reasons why his recent movie was such a damp squib at the box office. But who is to blame?

I, Me Aur Main turned out to be one of those scattered movies that passed by without anyone taking much notice, or buying a ticket, in this case. Blame it on the release date, is what John said in an interview. “I admit that the film released at a very bad time. Children, particularly teenagers, form a large part of my fan base. And most of them are busy with their exams now,” he said to a tabloid. Eh? But didn’t you agree to the date, John? Apparently he did. So what’s the fuss all about now?

Blame it on the way the film was marketed and promoted, said John, all ready and willing with an excuse yet again. “I can tell you only one thing – very little was done too late. I guess that says it all,” he said, again in that interview. But does it say all? Naah. Why, you haven’t said anything about your acting yet, John!

“John Abraham tries hard to deliver an honest performance, but doesn’t convey the various moods with much distinction,” our critic Prathamesh Jadhav said, and “John smirks and frowns through his performance, unsure of how to play a man who’s hopelessly in love with himself,” said another critic. So some credit of this catastrophic failure should be given to the (non)acting skills of this cry baby too, right?

But guess the actor is too involved with heaping the blame on others to notice how and where he went wrong. Even so, we stay hopeful that on a bright and sunny morning John will finally wake up and smell the…err…coffee as it clogs up the cash registers and stops them ringing. And we pray (just for you, John) that the said morning arrives before the next script does. Fingers crossed.

    The movie became flop because of John’s bad acting? Maybe you don’t know what are you talking about. It’s bollywood and no one cares about acting.If acting would matter then Salman and Katrina would never be bollywood’s top stars…So wake up and smell the coffee.You talking about bollywood…

    Well said Priya. It amazes me how you glorify Salman Khan who cannot act to save his life yet put John Abraham down. Is he the best actor? Nope. But hell of a lot better than many of the actors you glorify. Maybe your mind isn’t as strong as the coffee you drink:)

      Ally read properly my comment and you’ll see that I didn’t glorify Salman Khan or Katrina Kaif and put down John.It’s fact that he is a top actor and I would say very sad fact for bollywood when an actor who has only one stone-expression is a top actor.I just said that no one cares about acting in bollywood. It’s about plastic beuties and heroes with six packs. There are few natural actors who really can act like Vidya Balan and Ranbir kapoor. I personally like John very much. Maybe he is not the best actor but he is far more better than Salman in acting and look. Give him a good script like “Aashayein” and he’ll give good performance.

          Will John ever can do the role Salman played in Tere Naam??? Even Partner?? And he cannot act in comedy scenes.. He can do roles like in Dhoom wer having less dialogues & that rough n tough look.. I like John.. But how u compare him with Salman.. Salman is now doing these type of roles because thats what people want to see from him.. When Talaash was offered to him he told I will co-produce but will not act, becoz my fans will not accept me in this role… John is making good film as a producer(Jaffna & Madras cafe) & also planning to direct.. Thats good..

            Salman cannot act. Aside from all his remakes (that were already proven hits in the south) he really hasn’t had many original hits over the last 15 years. He could never do justice to Talaash or any author-backed role. That’s why he sticks to awful, mind-numbing remakes. John is better looking than Salman, has a better body, more respect and a better attitude. It’s disgusting how Salman’s ignorant fans promote his bad movies, bad acting & bad behaviour. Don’t forget that he is a rude, hot tempered woman beater & an irresponsible, reckless drunk driver who ran over & killed an innocent homeless man & then left the scene of the accident. This is who you idolize? Shame on you!

            Will Salman ever can do the roles John played in Jism, New York, jhoota hi sahi,Aashayein and even Dostana. No he can’t but I think john could do Tere Naam. I liked Salman’s acting in that movie till I saw tamil original ” Setu” with Vikram. That’s what I call real acting. What Salman did in Tere Naam John could do also…What about comedy. John is not a comedy king as well as Salman Khan. Non of them can’t do comedy like Govinda…I respect John for trying different genres and not doing the same Dabang role in every movie saying ” Oh you know my fans want me to do dumb movies only”

        I totally agree. I absolutely love John but I think that they bully him a lot because he doesn’t come from a film family with strong connections in the industry. Katrina Kaif is one of the worst actors in Bollywood – even after being in the biz for 10 yrs, but because she dated Salman, had so much plastic surgery and looks hot, her terrible acting gets overlooked. Salman only gets hits from remaking South movies. He doesn’t act well, but everyone’s afraid of his tantrums, plus his family has strong ties in the industry. It’s disgusting!

          I agree with you.
