The mythological drama Adipurush, starring Prabhas as Raghava (Rama), Kriti Sanon as Janaki (Sita), and Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh (Ravana) has finally been released in theatres worldwide on June 16. There has been a humongous buzz as the audiences are waiting to see how the filmmaker Om Raut has adapted the Sanskrit epic Ramayana for the big screen.
Taran Adarsh called Prabhas film 'epic disappointment'. Sharing his review for Adipurush, Taran Adarsh wrote, "#OneWordReview #Adipurush: DISAPPOINTING. Rating: 1 and a half #Adipurush is an EPIC DISAPPOINTMENT. Just doesn’t meet the mammoth expectations… Director #OmRaut had a dream cast and a massive budget on hand but creates a HUGE MESS. #AdipurushReview."
Not only Taran, even Twitter is full of audience reviews that express sheer disappointment and call the film a colossal waste of money. Audiences are especially cribbing about the bad VFX that mar the film. They have called the TV Series Ramayan much better than this.
“What A Trash VFX?? Looks Like Whole Film is Edit In Alight Motion Or Inshot. This VFX In 600Cr.? Bollywood Can Make 100x Better Than This In 100cr. Budget #Adipursh” said Sahil @SahilSheikh__SK
Amit Tiwari says, “Adipurush - A perfect example of messing around with your belief, emotions, love and everything attached with epic Ramayana in the name of creative freedom, and what so ever that strikes you to give it a fresh feel. This movie majorly felt like a cheap wannabe Hollywood action movie in the wrapper of Ramayana.”
However, there are viewers who have completely loved the movie. Sandeep Hebbar mentions that “Adipurush is an absolute cinematic marvel that captivates viewers with its grandeur, compelling storytelling, and breath-taking visual effects. The first thing that strikes you about Adipurush is its stunning visual presentation. The meticulously crafted sets, awe-inspiring landscapes, and seamless integration of computer-generated imagery (CGI) transport you to the mythical realm of ancient India. The attention to detail in the costumes, weapons, and overall production design is commendable, immersing the audience in an authentic and visually mesmerizing experience. Directed by Om Raut, this mythological epic takes inspiration from ancient Indian scriptures, breathing new life into the age-old tale of righteousness, valor, and the eternal battle between good and evil.”
According to Ramesh Nalimela who gives the film a 5 Star rating says, “Adipurush is an awe-inspiring cinematic masterpiece that takes the audience on an exhilarating journey into the realm of ancient mythology. As a devout fan of Indian cinema and mythology, I was eagerly waiting for this movie, and I must say it exceeded all my expectations.”
Director Om Raut's vision and storytelling prowess shine through in every frame of Adipurush. The grandeur and scale of the production are breathtaking, and the attention to detail in recreating ancient settings is commendable. The visual effects are top-notch, seamlessly blending with the narrative and adding an extra layer of realism to the mythical world. The battle sequences are awe-inspiring, leaving you at the edge of your seat, completely absorbed in the epic clash between good and evil.
Prabhas, known for his charismatic screen presence, delivers an extraordinary performance as Lord Ram. His portrayal effortlessly captures the essence of the character, showcasing both his strength as a warrior and his unwavering devotion as a prince. Prabhas's dedication to the role is evident in every scene, making him a perfect fit for the epic tale. The supporting cast also deserves praise for their outstanding performances. Kriti Sanon as Sita brings grace and strength to the character, while Sunny Singh as Laxman displays unwavering loyalty and a fiery spirit. They add depth to the narrative, complementing the central characters perfectly.
Adipurush is more than just a retelling of a mythological tale; it's a celebration of our rich cultural heritage. It explores timeless themes of love, sacrifice, and the triumph of good over evil. The film not only entertains but also sparks a sense of pride and reverence for our mythology.
In conclusion, Adipurush is an extraordinary cinematic experience that deserves all the accolades it receives. Prabhas's stellar performance, Saif Ali Khan's compelling portrayal, and Om Raut's masterful direction come together to create an epic spectacle that will leave you in awe. This movie sets a new benchmark for Indian cinema and is a must-watch for anyone who appreciates grand storytelling and visual splendour.
