Quickly after the makers unveiled the promo of Ramayan followers flooded the remark part with pink coronary heart emoticons. “Jai SiyaRam,” a fan commented. One other fan wrote, “Jai Shree Ram.”

Earlier in 2020, throughout the covid-lockdown, Doordarshan determined to re-telecast the mythological collection on public demand, Union Data and Broadcasting (I&B) Minister Prakash Javadekar knowledgeable.
Speaking about ‘Adipurush’, the movie, which is a dramatic retelling of Ramayana, confronted backlash on social media for its poor VFX and controversial dialogues together with marega bete, bua ka bagicha hain kya and jalegi tere baap ki. From critics to reviewers, a number of individuals from throughout the nation have expressed disappointment over the movie’s sure dialogues. Within the wake of such flak, the makers of Adipurush revamped the dialogues.

Speaking solely to ANI, Ramanand Sagar’s son Prem Sagar earlier mentioned, “Manoj Muntashir is well-informed about Hinduism. I don’t understand how he even conceived such dialogues in the film. It might be a misjudgement that the younger generation would like it. But you can’t do this with the audience. Don’t say it is based on Valmiki Ramayan, give it any other name. Make it a ‘fantasy’ film. But if you’re making Ramayan then you cannot hurt the sentiments. People watch this with devotion.”
“I have seen the clips of the movie and had a lot of interaction with people like Sunil Lehri (who played Laxman in Ramanand Sagar’s ‘Ramayan’), so some problem is there. I don’t even want to watch the film. Ravan was very knowledgeable and you are blackening the golden Lanka (sone ki Lanka), and his look with 5 heads up and 5 heads down,” he added.

Actor Sunil Lahri, who performed Laxman in Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan, earlier advised ANI, “I have seen the film. I am very disappointed after watching the film… The thought that crossed my mind was, why did I go to see the film? I didn’t like the picture at all. There are only two things that I can say I liked about the film — background music and the cinematography. Barring these two aspects, the film left me sorely disappointed.”

“After seeing the picture, I had no clue how to react to it. Setting myself aside, since I played a character in Ramayana, even the people who sat around me at the theatre were not happy watching the movie. Two women sat saying to each other, ‘Let’s get up and take a walk. What nonsense are we watching?’ To that, the other woman said, ‘Let’s see the visual effects if nothing else’. A man sitting next to me told his friend, ‘What are they showing in the name of Ramayana?'” he added.

Directed by Om Raut, Adipurush stars Prabhas as Lord Ram, Kriti Sanon as Goddess Sita, Sunny Singh as Laxman and Saif Ali Khan as Ravan.
