Adipurush is a depiction of the epic legend of Ramayana. The epic is deeply rooted in Hinduism. Few religious leaders and few political leaders are now in opposition to the movie’s release. According to them, the government should ban the film. The makers of the film should delete the controversial scenes from the movie as it hurts the sentiments of Hindus. Two deputy chief ministers from UP have warned to take legal actions against the film and its makers if they did not create changes. Kesav Prasad Maurya and Brijesh Pathak have condemned the teaser of the upcoming movie Adipurush for hurting the religious sentiments of the Hindu religion.
While the makers are facing backlash because of their allegedly poor CGI, copied poster, and heavy use of stages in the movie. Director Om Raut is in chaos answering people on the VFX.
Adipurush is against their ‘dignity’
The movie is starring Prabhas as Shri Ram. Saif Ali Khan is playing the antagonist Ravana while Kriti Sanon is playing the role of Sita. According to the people who are against the release of the movie, the depiction of Shri Ram, Ravana and Sita does not fulfill the hype and the gravity of the battle in the actual mythology. The battle in the movie is against their dignity. According to the chief priest Satyendra Das, ‘Making a film is not a crime but they should not be made to create deliberate controversies to hog the limelight,’.
Keshav Maurya added in his complaint, “Whatever saints have said needs attention. Movies have often hurt the sentiments of Hindus. Whenever our culture was attacked it was these saints and akharas that saved our culture. We are proud of our culture,”
According to the BJP spokesperson, Malavika Avinash. The makers of the movie did no research before showing the character of Ravana in the movie. He said, “The Ravana in the photograph that I see floating around is a guy who looks nothing Indian. Has blue eye makeup, and is wearing a leather jacket. This is our history they are representing; they cannot do it in the guise of creative liberty,”
