The 1.46-minute teaser of the much-awaited movie, Adipurush, was launched at a mega occasion in Ayodhya on Sunday night time.
However, it has left netizens upset and disillusioned, with many calling out the makers for its VFX and in addition a few of them evaluating it to “Pogo”.
But one key phrase that’s trending extra on social media is ‘Raavan’.
Adipurush, starring Prabhas, Kriti Shanon and Saif Ali Khan, is a retelling of the Ramayana. Prabhas’ character is termed as Raghav, which is one other identify for Lord Ram. Saif Ali Khan performs Raavan whereas Janaki is performed by Kriti.
Other than poor VFX, Saif Ali Khan‘s look as Raavan with beard made social media customers query if he’s enjoying Raavan or “Babar” or “Alauddin Khilji” within the movie.
Joking about the identical, one of many social media customers wrote, “He (Saif) is looking more like Babar or Aurangzeb or Taimur but certainly not Raavan.”
Another netizen commented, “How is this look of Raavan? Raavan was a Hindu Brahmin from Northern Region.”
Another wrote: “#SaifAliKhan looks like an IsIamic invader than Raavan in #Adipurush?”
“I mean seriously!!! Are they going to change the name of ravan to rizwan?? Who is styling his beard?? Javid Habib?? They have made him look like Alauddin Khilji,” added one consumer.
The makers of Adipurush, which has been directed by Om Raut, have spent a fortune on the visible results. The movie has reportedly been made on a funds of over 400 crore, most of which has been spent on the VFX however, it looks like the output is way from what the viewers was anticipating.
