By a Staff Reporter: Prabhas, Kriti Shannon and Saif Ali Khan starrer 'Adipurush' released today. Trolls and criticisms about various clippings and dialogues of the film have been spreading on social media since the show started. This film was in the center of attention even before its release.  Allegations of misrepresentation, bad VFX; but even then it cannot be said that the audience did not have expectations about the film. The film sold a record number of tickets even before its release. But the fans had to return disappointed after seeing the first day's show. From the story of the film to the VFX worth crores of rupees, nothing could touch the hearts . Om Raut's film came under ultimate trolling after watching the first day's show on social media.

 Prabhas or Kriti's dialogues in Hindi are referred to as 'Tapori' by many. The special effects of the film costing crores of rupees have been highlighted time and again during the promotion.Perhaps that's why the audience was so ambitious about the film's VFX. But practically all the propaganda went down the drain. From the battle scenes to the royal palace or other special effects, the audience did not like it at all. Many compared this film with Ramananda Sagar's Ramayana.

The excitement of Ram devotees is visible in the theatre. In every show, a seat is kept vacant for Hanuman Ji, a staunch devotee of Lord Rama. Apart from this, slogans of Jai Shri Ram are also heard during the show. But in the midst of all this, a Hindu organization has expressed its anger about the film. A public interest litigation was filed against the film in the Delhi High Court by the Hindu Sena. The petitioner says that because of this film, Ramayana, Lord Sriram and the culture of the country are being satirised.In this petition, which has reached the Delhi High Court, the organization has raised many allegations against the film. The petition stated that the film poked fun at 'Ramayana', 'Lord Ram' and 'our culture'. In the petition, the Hindu Sena national president also asked the Delhi court to remove the allegedly offensive scenes of Ravana, Lord Ram, Mother Sita and Hanuman in the movie 'Adipurush'. He states that the scenes contrast with the depiction of religious characters found in the Ramayana.

However, the performance of the actors and actresses has been appreciated. 'Adipurush' stars Prabhas as Sri Ram, Sunny Singh as Lakshman, Kriti Sanon as Mother Sita. At the same time, Saif Ali Khan is seen doing a strong performance in the role of Ravana. The film also stars Devdutta Nage as 'Hanuman Ji'. They have tried to give their best in their own place. Time will tell how much business this film will do at the box office after the final critical and trolling on the first day. However, the film's director and actors are optimistic about the film.
