(CTN News) – Prabhas’ performance as Lord Ram in “Adipurush” has generated significant buzz since it is a Ramayana film. In the past few weeks, the film has received a lot of hype.
A Adipurush story about:
Prabhas (Prabhas), Kriti (Kriti Sanon), and Sunny (Sunny Singh) are exiles living in the forest. Ravana (Saif Ali Khan) kidnaps Sita after Lakshman cuts off Soorpanaka’s nose.
The Vanara Sena and Hanuman (Devadatta) help Raghava declare war on Ravana.
The artists’ Adipurush performances were as follows:
As Raghava, also known as Lord Ram, Prabhas excels. The tall, commanding figure of his character is perfect for the role. Prabhas is the ideal choice for the role since Om Raut presents Lord Rama as an aggressive warrior prince.
The performance Adipurush of Kriti Sanon as Janaki is adequate. Although she has limited screen time, she does a good job.
Initially, Saif Ali Khan portrays Raavana convincingly, but as the film progresses, Raavana’s portrayal starts to resemble that of a superhero.
It is Devadatta Nage’s stellar performance as Hanuman that makes him stand out in the film.
As Ravan’s wife Mandodari, Sonal Chauhan appears as a cameo, while Trupti Toradmal portrays Soorpanaka well.
Excellence in technical skills:
As one of the film’s strongest assets, Ajay-Atul’s songs play a very significant role. Many scenes are enhanced by the skillful use of “Jai Shri Ram” in the background score.
This epic drama’s greatest strength is its music department. While the visual effects are impressive, the 3D effects and background are lacking. Second-half war Adipurush sequences have particularly disappointing visual effects.
An analysis of
“Ramayana” is a fundamental part of Indian culture, and everyone knows it. In our culture and way of life, it is deeply ingrained. Using innovative cinematic approaches, Om Raut updated this epic tale to appeal to today’s young audience. Despite his good intentions, Om Raut lacks the expertise to implement his plan.
Om Raut focused on a section of the Valmiki Ramayanam that was still in the middle of its original telling. In the film, Ram and Sita are exiled during the Soorpanaka tale, and the battle between Ram and Ravana concludes the story.
‘Yuddhakanda’ (the war episode) is what Om Raut focused on in the Ramayanam.
Raavana’s admirable traits are highlighted in the Adipurush first part, and Soorpanaka’s nose is severed in the second part, Sita is abducted, Hanuman arrives, and Ram builds the sethu. Thus, the first half of the film provides a wealth of material. This makes the first half of the film watchable despite some cheesy CGI and a strange depiction of Ravana’s Lanka.
In the second half, however, the film devolves into a standard, action-heavy superhero film. The second half consists exclusively of Ram and Ravana’s unending battle, lacking any emotional depth. Moreover, the visual effects are substandard. Often, their poor quality makes it difficult for us to enjoy the experience fully.
Om Raut, who usually handles VFX-heavy productions like Tanhaji, struggles in this film. Dialogues are also ineffective.
It has a long history of producing fantastic Mahabharata and Ramayana films for Telugu audiences. Thus, Om Raut’s portrayal of Lanka and Ravana falls drastically short. The world of Lanka seems like something from a science fiction film, and Raavana’s limp is confusing.
By turning a magnificent epic into a gaudy superhero film devoid of emotion or intrigue, Om Raut made a serious mistake.
Aside from Prabhas and the music, the film does not live up to its potential.
In general, “Adipurush” is an emotionally flat retelling of the Ramayana. Prabhas does a great job as Lord Ram, but it fails if you are looking for a devotional feeling or VFX-rich experience.
