Some verified Twitter handles have claimed that the Big budget movie of Superstar Prabhas is now postponed.
The movie Adipurush was planned for release in January 2023. Adipurush stars Prabhas in the role of Shri Ram, Kriti Sanon as Mata Sita, Saif Ali khan as Ravan and Devdatta Nage as Shri Hanuman.
The Film is based on Hindu Epic Ramayana and is directed by Om Rout.
The film was widely criticised from all sections for its cartoon-like VFX, mediocre cinematography and misrepresentation of the Hindu Deities after its teaser was released. The director later tried to explain the reason for the poor VFX in the teaser. The makers had even screened the teaser in 3D theatre after the worst possible public reactions to the teaser.
Call for Ban
Various Hindu organisations and a few politicians expressed their displeasure with the portrayal of ancient Hindu history in the movie. People were not happy with the representation of Bhagwan Ram and Ravana. Some organisations have demanded Ban on the release of the movie. Some have even moved to the courts to get the Ban orders.
How new release date will affect it?
Looks like the makers have now taken cognisance of the public sentiments and are working on the VFX and other aspects of the Film. Prabhas fans had appealed to the makers to postpone the release of the movie.
As per the unconfirmed reports, the movie is postponed for summer 2023, which is for April 2023. This few months of the gap will give crucial time to the makers to improve the VFX and characterization in the movie. While it is disappointing for some we hope the delay will benefit the film.
The makers have not released any official statement yet.
