The teaser of Adipurush has been panned for the presentation of the characters and VFX, which are being called amateurish, especially after what Brahmastra has delivered last month
Prabhas and Om Raut
The teaser of Adipurush has become a talking point ever since it was unveiled on Sunday. Based on the Ramayana, Om Raut’s directorial venture stars Prabhas as Lord Ram, Kriti Sanon as Sita, and Saif Ali Khan as the demon king Raavan. However, the teaser has been panned for the presentation of the characters and VFX, which are being called amateurish, especially after what Brahmāstra has delivered last month. That’s certainly not music to Prabhas’s ears as he is banking on the film to get back into the groove after the sub-par box-office performance of Saaho and Radhe Shyam. In a video, that has gone viral, Prabhas can be seen summoning Om to his room. Going by his tone, the actor seems miffed. Considering that the video came out soon after the teaser of Adipurush was released, it is only adding fodder to the controversy. Prabhas’s fans hope that the film will correct the damage done by the teaser. To appease the audiences, the producers are reportedly sending out feelers that the VFX looks great on the big screen.
