Dr. Jawahar Surisetti, Eminent Psychologist and Movie Buff, Comes out With a Solution to Bollywood Rankings That is Objective and Representative
Dr. Jawahar Surisetti has created a unique rating system for Bollywood called BAAP (Bollywood Algorithm for Assessment of Popularity) Ratings. These ratings take into consideration only those factors that are directly proportional to the people's view. BAAP Ratings will be the first scientific and democratic ratings to assess popularity of stars and films in India.
BAAP Ratings is hosted by the website www.merabollywood.in and is a complex maze of calculations to arrive at the ranking system of Bollywood's top actor, actress and film of the week. These ratings are necessary because of the fact that they do not include ad revenues of the stars which are a by-product of their popularity therefore have been left out of the process.
In this wholly objective process, calculations are based on factors like the first day and overall collections which reflect the popularity of the stars; consistency which is measured by the last two releases of the star; efficiency which is a coefficient of the cost of making the film and the revenue generated so that smaller films of low budgets which are doing well also get justice; ratings by top critics and media and voting by fans apart from many other factors. After inputs in all these areas, BAAP ratings comes up with a weekly ranking which is displayed on the website www.merabollywood.in which is updated every week.
Dr. Jawahar Surisetti, the maverick innovator of BAAP ratings, says that the voting system and Bollywood share bazaar allow people to represent their stars and be a part of the democratic process. He opines that since 10000 Bollyshares are allotted free of cost to each registrant on the site, the member then has the right to invest these notional shares on his favourite stars and the values of these shares rise and fall based on the performance of the stars and their movies. There is also a voting system in place called BOL PUBLIC BOL on the website.
All in all, these ratings will bring in objectivity and will get rid of speculation and emotional ranking of stars based on perceptions which are not scientific or logical. Thus, Bollywood has BAAP ratings as the first ratings to bring in assessment based on public perception but with an objective transparent outlook.
