After the failures of Saaho and Radhe Shyam, Prabhas’s Adipurush repeated the same concept. They invested huge money into the project but miss the beat, the film collapsed on the first Monday.
Adipurush looks like a cartoonish film, a total waste of stardom of Bahubali actor Prabhas and talents like Kriti Sanon, Saif Ali Khan, and Devdatta Nage.
Tanhaji director Om Raut’s execution disappoints at this time. If the film works at Box Office, a credit will go to Prabhas’s fans or people might go for big names associated with the project.
Adipurush pre-release events left no chance to create hype for this magnum opus, distributors already announced free tickets, joined by Ranbir, Ananya Birla, and others.

Makers of Adipurush

The film is made under the banner of Bhusan Kumar’s production company T-Series Films in association with director Raut’s home banner Retrophiles.
This magnum opus is said to have been made on a budget of Rs 650- 675 crores, with half of the budget (Rs 350 crores) reportedly to be spent on the VFX (visual effects). It is the most expensive Bollywood film to date and is one of the highly anticipated upcoming Bollywood films.
The teaser of Adipurush was unveiled via a grand teaser launch ceremony on the bank of the Saryu River in Lord Rama’s birthplace in Ayodhya on October 2, 2022. The main star cast, including Kriti Sanon, Prabhas, Sunny Singh, and director Om Raut, was also present at the ceremony. Simultaneously, the teaser was also launched on the “T-Series” official YouTube channel.
However, it didn’t go well with social media users, who slammed the makers of Adipurush for poor VFX and shoddy character designs. People were wondering if the film is based on the epic Ramayana or if it is a live-action movie like Game of Thrones or House of the Dragon.
Following widespread criticism, the filmmakers admitted their mistakes and promised to re-evaluate the film and improve its visual effects. It is obvious that changing the visual effects for such a big film will take longer. So that is the reason why the film’s release has been delayed by almost six months.
