Bachelor Director Sathish Selvakumar Responds To The Backlash On His Film's Dialogue
The recently released trailer of G.V. Prakash and Divyabharthi's " Bachelor " is receiving some backlash from the audience. Some have been saying that the teaser seems similar to the Tamil films Arjun Reddy and some have been criticizing the actress for her lines in the teaser.

In the teaser, the actress was seen saying "I should have thought twice before sleeping with you" to the hero and this particular dialogue caught the attention of many viewers and some of them were disappointed to see such a dialogue in the film. 

Now explaining the dialogue to the audience Sathish Selvakumar, the director of the film said, "That is how people speak in the real world. When someone is angry, the mind-to-mouth filter doesn't work effectively and they tend to say things directly. In this case, the line is uttered by the heroine in a moment of anger and I felt that it would be more truthful. We wanted to see if we could narrate a story through the teaser instead of merely teasing the audience. 

We intended to show that this film will be raw and real, and will not be preachy. We did not have this line just to increase the saleability of the film. People who are criticizing should also look at the line that the protagonist says before this line. He asks the girl, ‘Did I cheat on you after saying that I love you? Are you psycho?’ Any girl would have been angered by such a question and would have responded this way.” The director also said that he never thought that this line would become a controversy before writing it and said that he understands the concern.

Bachelor is an upcoming Tamil romance action movie written and directed by Sathish Selvakumar. The film features G. V. Prakash and Divyabharthi in the lead roles.
