Here comes the Adipurush trailer it seemed to have caused quite a stir in the Indian film industry, with its breathtaking visuals, grand scale, and star-studded cast. The film is an adaptation of the Hindu epic Ramayana and is directed by Om Raut, who previously helmed the hugely successful Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.
The trailer begins with a stunning shot of the ancient city of Ayodhya, where Lord Ram (played by Prabhas) is shown leading a peaceful and contented life with his wife Sita (played by Kriti Sanon) and brother Lakshman (played by Sunny Singh). However, their idyllic existence is soon disrupted by the arrival of Ravan (played by Saif Ali Khan), the demon king of Lanka, who kidnaps Sita and takes her away to his kingdom.
The rest of the trailer showcases Ram’s journey to rescue Sita and defeat Ravan, with stunning battle scenes and epic landscapes that are sure to leave audiences in awe. Prabhas looks every inch the valiant hero, with his chiseled physique and intense expressions, while Kriti Sanon brings grace and beauty to the role of Sita. Saif Ali Khan, on the other hand, is almost unrecognizable in his demonic avatar, with his striking makeup and menacing demeanor.
What sets Adipurush apart from other adaptations of the Ramayana is its focus on the human emotions and relationships that underpin the epic. The trailer gives us glimpses of Ram’s love for Sita, his bond with Lakshman, and his unwavering sense of duty towards his kingdom and his people. We also see Ravan’s complex character, with shades of arrogance, jealousy, and vulnerability that make him more than just a one-dimensional villain.
Another aspect that has generated a lot of buzz around Adipurush is the use of cutting-edge technology to create the film’s visuals. The trailer features stunning landscapes, intricate costumes, and larger-than-life sets that transport us to the ancient world of the Ramayana. The battle scenes, in particular, look like they could rival any Hollywood production in terms of scale and intensity.
Of course, with such a high-profile project comes a certain amount of controversy. Some have criticized Adipurush for glorifying a religious text that has been used to justify violence and oppression against marginalized communities. Others have accused the film of promoting a certain political agenda, given its release date in the run-up to important state elections in India.
However, the filmmakers have defended Adipurush as a work of art that transcends politics and religion. In an interview with The Indian Express, director Om Raut said, “We are not trying to promote any religion or ideology. We are telling a story that has been a part of our cultural heritage for centuries. Our aim is to entertain and inspire audiences, and we hope that people will appreciate the hard work and passion that has gone into making this film.
