Actor Mammootty, who plays the lead in the upcoming film 'Kaathal The Core', is of the opinion that banning film reviews won't save the film industry. The actor was speaking during the film's promotion in Kochi. He also said people should not be influenced by other people's opinions and should articulate only their own views about a film.

“Let there be films and reviews. But it is important that people have their own opinion about the film they are watching. I don't think banning reviews will save the film industry,' he said. The actor's words gain significance as review bombing has become a major concern for filmmakers within the industry. Recently, the Kochi police had registered the first-ever case of review bombing after a filmmaker alleged there has been deliberate attempts to degrade his movie.
