Adipurush Movie Review: A sincere attempt at retelling 'Ramayana' but rides high on action over ethosModified On: 19 June 2023 | Reviewed By: Team Moviekoop
Storyline: The film is a screen adaptation of Valmiki’s Ramayana.
Review: "Adipurush" is a film that attempts to retell the epic tale of Ramayana in a contemporary manner. The film focuses on the abduction of Sita by Ravan and the subsequent battle between Ram's army and Ravan's forces. The action-adventure aspect of the film is highlighted, drawing comparisons to the Marvel superhero movies to appeal to a younger audience.
The film struggles to find a balance between the epic story and its execution in a superhero-verse. The dialogue is criticized for lacking impact and the characters' oscillation between different tones is deemed unconvincing. The first half of the film is described as stagnant and lacking thrill or urgency, while the second half, which showcases the war scenes, is deemed engaging and redeems the film to some extent.
Saif Ali Khan's portrayal of Ravan is praised for exuding energy and stealing the show with his wicked mannerisms. The music and background score are commended for enhancing Saif's performance. However, the VFX and visual appeal are considered passable but not impressive, and the 3D aspect is seen as unnecessary. The reviewer mentions that despite the dramatic buildup, the climax of the film doesn't leave a strong sense of joy, reward, or victory.
Overall, "Adipurush" is a sincere attempt at retelling the epic tale of Ramayana but the film's ambition may have overwhelmed its execution.
