    • IMDb is a user-generated site. Anybody can submit a project to IMDb, so a project being listed there doesn't mean that it is notable, or even legitimate. Take a look at this totally fake "movie" created by a kid, who also tried to use the IMDb presence to legitimise the hoax article he created at Wikipedia. Koimoi is not a reliable source per WP:ICTFSOURCES and as IWMBuzz is a PR site, it is inherently dependent on press releases, which means that it is not an independent source, as is required to establish notability per our General Notability Guideline (GNG). While The Tribune in general is reliable, the article you included has no byline, which means it could be a press release (i.e. not independent), it doesn't speak in depth about the film (i.e. doesn't meet the "significant coverage" requirement of WP:GNG) and the entire second paragraph is an actor quote (i.e. not independent.) So, in plain terms, none of the references provided help to establish the film's notability. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:18, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
      • The article doesn't speak about the depth of the film, but the headline of the article says it all. Also, i assume, you missed out the article's last line where it claims the series release date.RadheSlate (talk) 11:33, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
      • I have included another article from another reliable outlet Deccan Chronicle which speaks about The Depth of the Film (i.e. meets the "significant coverage" requirement of WP:GNG. Now this article has two reliable sources that cannot be ignored or denied. RadheSlate (talk) 11:58, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
        • @RadheSlate: You seem to be (conveniently) confused about what I actually said and are ignoring other key details. I didn't say that the Tribune doesn't talk about the "depth of the series" I said that The Tribune does not speak in depth about the series. It tells us (vaguely) where it streams, it lists two stars, includes a brief plot synopsis and then tells us when the series will be released. Four pieces of data is not in depth coverage. Where was it shot? How long did filming take? Were there any problems along the way? Who directed it? Who did the music? How much did it cost to produce? This sort of content inches us closer to "in depth", but if such content is presented in the context of a press relesae or interview, which fail the independent aspect of the General Notability Guideline's requirement. And as I said above, the bulk of the 'article' is a quote from Tejwani, thus, not independent. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:38, 28 January 2021 (UTC) I erroneously called this a "film", when I meant series. I have changed those terms in my most recent response. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:42, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
        • If i go by your in depth explanation what you just wrote, the Article would be termed as PR Note where the Article will speak about the series Length, Budget, Cast and Crew details etc. I hope we are not looking for a PR Note but a proper Article from reliable sources. This article has two articles from reliable sources, IMDb Link (To explain the Cast and Crew details), and some bulk articles which you may want to recognize or not. I think this article justifies it's stay on Wikipedia. If not, i really have no idea what exactly are you looking out for. (talk) 12:37, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
          • We're looking for detailed coverage about the series that isn't a press release, that isn't an interview, and that comes from reliable secondary sources that are independent of the subject. If you can't find that, then perhaps it's too early to publish this article. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 20:57, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
            • There are other detailed coverage to support the article which are neither Press Release, nor Interview, along with two reliable sources. There are also many articles on Wikipedia which are published on the basis of one or two reliable source articles. (talk) 04:47, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
              • I have now submitted a properly detailed explained review of the mini-series from a very reliable outlet Mid-Day. Earlier this link was broken due to some technical error, may be. Now the Article has 03 Reliable coverage and some supportive coverage. I hereby request this Article for Publishing. (talk) 03:54, 01 February 2021 (UTC)
                • The Mid-Day reference is useless, as it appears to be a reprint of "partnered content" (hmm, like a press release?) from an unknown source. Mid-day doesn't even stand behind it, disclaiming: "This story has been sourced from a third party syndicated feed, agencies. Mid-day accepts no responsibility or liability for its dependability, trustworthiness, reliability and data of the text." So this is clearly not content generated by the reliable source, and thus it does nothing to advance the claim that the subject is notable. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 22:47, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
                  • No one gives anyone the right to call any reference as a useless reference. Myself, being a journalist, would love to take the opportunity to explain you what 'Partnered Content' exactly means here in Indian Journalism, especially in Entertainment Media. When a particular article or a story is written/created by two or more Authors for different sources, and those two or more Authors feels not to be named in the 'Byline', it is known as 'Partnered Content'. As far as Mid-Day not accepting any responsibilities or liabilities goes, the reliable source means, if the content, in any case, hurts any religious feelings or sentiments, the reliable source cannot be called out for any responsibilities. They give this line for any 'Partnered Content'. This does not at all means, the content is not released from the reliable source or the reliable source is ashamed to release the content. I really have no idea why you are 'Purposely' targeting my Edits or my Contributions. I am noticing this from a long time. First you targeted my Edits on Kavita Radheshyam, later Faisal Saif and now here. I am not here to do any Promotions to anyone. I am here for contributions. There are so many Articles on Wikipedia that are there on merely one or two reliable source references. This Article has a total number of 08 References (Supportive and Sub-Supportive, both). RadheSlate (talk) 03:43, 04 February 2021 (UTC)
                    • 1) Your definition of "partnered content" seems to differ from Mid-Day's, since they very clearly indicate at the bottom of the article that the content came from an outside entity, not from two of its journalists, as you seem to be intimating. Mid-Day did not produce that content. 2) Wikipedians can absolutely decide what sources are suitable for meeting the community's standards. For instance, the community considers Forbes Magazine to be a reliable source. The community does not consider Forbes.com contributor articles to be reliable. Like Mid-Day, Forbes.com also distances itself from contributor content with a similar disclaimer. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 19:06, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
