The teaser of Adipurush featuring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan was unveiled by the makers today (Oct 2). High on animation and inspired by the Hindu mythological story of the epic Ramayana, the video of Om Raut directorial is getting heavily slammed online for looking like ‘video game’. Here, check out what netizens have to say about it below.
The teaser shows Lord Ram in deep meditation underwater as demons from all directions come swirling in. He aims his arrows to take a few out when we get the first glimpse at Saif’s Lankesh with ice-blue eyes, praying at a mountain. We also see him showing off his 10 heads to a woman sitting at his feet. He rides a demon-dragon-creature into battle and on the other side, Lord Ram is joined by his own army that includes Laxman and Hanuman with the vaanar sena.
There is a short glimpse at Kriti’s Sita as she swings in a meadow with Lord Ram smiling at her. It is followed by scenes of battle between the demons and the vaanar sena in Lanka. And all of it looks quite bad. The CGI reminds one of pre-2010 Bollywood, a far cry from Prabhas’ own Baahubali series.
Adipurush is Om Raut’s follow-up project to his 2020 blockbuster movie Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. Adipurush is produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar of T-series, Raut, Prasad Sutar, and Rajesh Nair of Retrophiles. The movie is slated to be released in theatres on January 12, 2023 in IMAX and 3D.
