The actor was accused of not being able to get used to the image of a provincial kid who found himself in the capital. And also that he did not manage to show changes in the nature of the character, which occurred closer to the end of the drama.

Negative feedback did not prevent Balabanov from withdrawing the continuation of the story, in which Bodrov again won the main role. After that, the status of the sex symbol was finally approved for him.
