Positive points

Very few actors in the current generation can pull off mythological or periodic roles with ease and conviction, and Prabhas is one among them. The actor has an unmatched aura and royalty, and Adipurush couldn’t have been any better if some other actor had played Lord Sri Rama. The PAN-India star amazes big time with his charisma, body language, and dialogue delivery, and he fits the bill perfectly as Lord Rama. The way he utters lengthy dialogues and his screen presence are indomitable.

One more best thing to have happened to Adipurush is Saif Ali Khan. The team had an uphill task of casting an actor who could match Prabhas, and they indeed did a great job by casting Saif Ali Khan. The star actor makes the film even fiery with his incredible performance as Lankesh, i.e., Ravanasura. Saif Ali Khan performs it to the tee and has scored brownie points too.

Sita character is definitely a challenge for someone like Kriti Sanon, who mostly played glamorous roles in her career, but boy, she is perfect as Janaki, aka Sita. Kriti’s divine looks and her mature performance adds depth to the proceedings. Devdatte Nage, the Marathi actor, breathed life into the role of Lord Hanuman. Sunny Singh, Vatsal Sheth, and Sonal Chauhan pass muster.

Om Raut’s strength lies in showcasing the drama, and he handled the first half in a very neat manner. There are many well-executed sequences in the first hour, including the Jatayu – Ravana fight, Hanuman meeting Rama for the first time, the face-off between Sugriva and Vaali, and Hanuman setting Lanka on fire. These aspects are something that are very familiar to the audience, but the way Om Raut has presented them intrigues one. Ajay-Atul duo’s songs are superb, to say the least, and the background score has lifted the movie in many areas.

Negative points

While the first half was pretty engaging, the second half failed to continue the momentum. It starts on a dull note as the proceedings showcased look bland here. The final battle takes the lion’s share of the screen time, becoming an exhaustive watch after a point of time. The editing team should have reduced the length by 10 minutes to make things better.

All the fears about the VFX have come true, sadly. The teaser received severe flak from one and all, and hence the team reworked on the VFX works for a long time. But the end result is unsatisfactory in this aspect. For a movie of 500 crore budget, the visual effects are substandard.

One more drawback of Adipurush is that it is mostly shot in Hindi. Most of the time, we see actors mouthing Hindi dialogues, and this surely is a major disappointment as the makers stated that it is a Telugu-Hindi bilingual. The impact got bogged down at times due to this issue. The Ravanasura’s look, the way Lanka world has been designed may not go well with many. The makers took some cinematic liberties, and a few scenes look exaggerated.

Review

As per our expectations that film would be great showing culture, heritage and history but director failed in making film. Dialogues are good at some places but it doesn’t suits in some places. Music is good, all the songs in the movie are well written and composed .

Overall movie is good but audience expectations were more than the film is and it is the movie which tells about our history in modern way.
