Problem with #ZoyaAkhtar is that she watches foreign movies & shows and start to think India is also like US.— Vagabond (@ExMachina1196) May 14, 2022
No kid in the 80s in India used to dress up like this.#StrangerThings4 was relatable because the characters looked like average US kids living in the 80s.#TheArchies https://t.co/QjWlFTR6sM

im sorry but who truly is excited for this? the archies is another example of nepotism in bollywood and in south asia overall. tons of talented actors with no connections to big stars have lost out on roles because of mediocre star kids. some have even died bc of it,, iykyk pic.twitter.com/0sCgxNNTei— nono (@bunnyjaemin) May 14, 2022

It could be renamed as The Archies: The tale celebrating Nepotism— Tarangini das (@CalmDevops319) May 14, 2022
Netizens are saying that this movie should have been named as 'The Archies: A tale celebrating nepotism', as we can see only star kids in it. They are calling it the hotpot of nepotism. They are also saying that they cannot see their childhood memory getting ruined by these nepo kids.
