Director Om Raut Defends 'Adipurush' Teaser Amid Criticism

Mumbai, October 5 - The teaser of director Om Raut's mega movie Adipurush, starring Prabhas, has been under scrutiny for poor VFX. "Adipurush" is probably the most trolled movie in recent times, however, Om Raut has strongly defended the teaser amid criticism.

Om Raut and T-Series showed the teaser to industry people on the big screen, and the reaction from the screening has completely opposite to what the audience is saying. The teaser also revealed the first look of Prabhas as Raghava, Kriti Sanon as Janaki, and Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh, based on Lord Rama, Goddess Sita, and Ravana from the epic Ramayana respectively.

The filmmaker interacted with the media after showing the teaser to the industry people. He said that he was dishearted to see the audience's reaction but wasn't surprised as he made the movie for the big screen, not for the mobile.

"I was disheartened for sure, not surprised because the film is made for a larger medium — the big screen. You can cut it down to some extent but can't bring it down to a mobile phone. That's an environment I can't control. Given a choice, I'd never put it on YouTube but that's the need of the hour. We need to put it there so that it reaches a wide audience", Raut said according to Hindustan Times.

"My partner and the studio (T-Series) is the largest YouTube channel in the world. This film does require an audience that comes to cinema halls very rarely — primarily the senior citizen generation that doesn't come to cinemas or people from remote locations who don't have access to theaters".

"We need those people to come and see the film because it's Ramayana... We need to reach a wider audience and get them excited. So, as I said, I was not surprised because it's not made for the smaller screen. It's made for a larger screen and I can't consume it on a smaller screen", he added.

Produced by T-series, and Retrophiles, the movie is scheduled to release on January 12, 2023, in 3D and IMAX in multiple languages.
