 1. For takeaways,the domestic film making industry is still very much growing and should not be compared with other international counterparts.

  2. Domestic Movie critics should and must be allowed to voice their opinions about films. They  are part of the film making ecosystem and truly beneficial.

 3. Filmmakers should not be told what to do. Advise and move on. They have been in this game for long and they have firsthand experience of  what their Audiences will PAY for. Keyword on PAY!

4. The fact that this tweet storm  actually took place means domestic audiences now more than ever are paying attention to what domestic filmmakers are doing. This in fact means audience growth and penetration has increased for the past five years.
