So does that mean Times of India does not review Tamil movies in Chennai edition… Kannada movies in Bangalore edition… or Telugu movies in Hyderabad edition? Of course not! How can they ignore the local language movies? The people speaking the local language are 1st grade citizens in these cities. You might be amused to know that the percentage of Kannada speakers in Bangalore is lesser that Marathi speakers in Mumbai!
On two past occasions I have shown how Times of India cold shoulders Marathi manoos – 1 & 2
3M shares an thot – A friend argued that if Marathi Manoos wants to read the reviews of Marathi movies he should read Maharashtra Times… but with that logic Times of India should review only “English Movies” and Hindi movie reviews should appear only in Navbharat Times.
