Jai Arjun Singh talks about film criticism and film literature at TEDxNSIT:

***

Every time I read or hear him (or someone like Roger Ebert for that matter), I am reminded why I don’t read (or write, if you’re keeping count) other film reviewers anymore. Big-time film critics to small-time blogger-critics treat each movie like a one-night stand. Singh and Ebert are married happily to movies. Huge f*cking difference. Heh.

Instead of picking on someone else, I’ll refer to a review I wrote as an example of the kind of reviews one mustn’t look up to. It remains, for better or worse, my most popular post.

Just read Jai’s piece on Satyakam and you’ll get what I’m talking about.
