Making a film on the world famous mythological epic like Ramayana is a big challenge for anyone. It is a tough task for the director to make characters like Sri Rama – Sita Devi – Anjaneya – Ravana in a way that people can appreciate them. We have scholars who have vast knowledge of mythology. There will be also staunch supporters of Hindu religion and gods, who will not take any slight mistakes when making these kind of films. The movie units will face serious opposition from them. Team Adipurush is facing the same heat now. When the teaser of the Omraut directorial was released recently, such criticism came from all corners of the world.
Especially the way the characters were shown in it and the shoddy VFX was severely criticized by many. Especially Saif’s getup in the role of Ravana was severely criticized for comparing him with characters like Thor.
However, the Prabhas – Om Raut team had arranged a media conference earlier to counter the above criticisms. They said that visual viewing is different in mobile. The view on the big screen is different. Adipurush is a must watch movie on the big screen. That too would be great in 3D, the team said.
Around the negativity of this movie, Bollywood audience have been trending in social media with #BanAdipurush tag and saying that Adipurush team is degrading the epic Ramayana. In response to this, South Indian audience are now countering with #NoOneCanStopAdipurush.
In the recent days god knows what’s the issue with Bollywood audience but they are trending on social media to boycott every hero film for silly reasons. Recently they did the same boycott trend for Lal singh chadda, Brahmastra and now they are doing for Adipurush.
