Adipurush has remained the most anticipated film of 2023, but it failed to meet expectations. The Prabhas-starrer, based on the Hindu epic Ramayana, was made with a massive budget of ₹500 crore. However, the film has been heavily criticized for its poor visual effects and cringeworthy dialogues.
After receiving widespread negative feedback, Adipurush has made it to IMDb’s list of the 50 worst Bollywood films of all time, ranking 10th. The film initially drew large crowds, but after the first few screenings and negative word-of-mouth, Adipurush’s box office performance plummeted.
Despite the film’s poor critical reception, it grossed ₹410 crore (US$53 million) worldwide during its six-day theatrical run. However, it has also set an unwanted record, becoming the 10th lowest-rated film on IMDb with a user rating of just 4.6 out of 10, based on 89,000 votes.
Adipurush, a film based on the Hindu epic Ramayana, has been ranked 10th on IMDb’s list of the 50 worst Bollywood films of all time. The film was directed by Om Raut and stars Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, Saif Ali Khan, and Sunny Singh. Adipurush was banned in Nepal over a dialogue in the film which stated Goddess Sita as the “Daughter of India,” whereas many believe that Sita was born in Nepal. However, the ban was recently lifted, which did not sit well with the mayor of Kathmandu.
Another dialogue of the film, spoken by Lord Hanuman, was edited and updated after it went viral on the internet and received widespread backlash. The film is directed by Om Raut and produced by Bhushan Kumar. The film features Prabhas as Lord Raghav, Kriti Sanon as Janaki Sita, Saif Ali Khan as Ravana, Suny Singh as Lakshmana, and Devdatta Nage as Lord Hanuman. The film was released on June 16, 2023.
