Adipurush First Day Collection: The audience criticized the film
Adipurush Movie Review: Viewers express disappointment over the film’s VFX and portrayal of mythological characters. The director fails to deliver a fresh perspective in depicting the looks of Ram and Ravana in line with the modern era. Since the story of Ramayana is already well-known, the film’s success relies heavily on its filmmaking, acting, VFX, and overall cinematic experience. However, due to audience dissatisfaction, the film is not performing well after the first weekend.
