A well trained VFX artist and technician from around the country have started working on the project. Adipurush was criticized for everything ranging from very unnatural cast and unfit costumes to very disastrous VFX. The mythological epic has turned into a bull shit.

It appeared as if the makers have no intention of fixing it before releasing it. After the initial release of the teaser of Adipurush the makers of the film postponed the release of the film and promised to make the special effect of the movie better. The new posters then received a good response from the audience and later on they announced that the film will have its world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival on June 13th three days before it was released worldwide on June 16th.

Another user wrote ‘’Adipurush at Tribeca Festival Even the previous VFX appear better than the previous. A third user reacted Extra 100 cr oorke pettad anukunarra Colour grading looks devastating. But there are number of other user who never noticed any difference between the before and after pics. One user reacted ‘’ The way #Adipurush marketing team is promoting new and improved teaser VFX is laughable and sad  as they never take into account  for what they have produced . There is a huge difference in color grading and improved VFX. But the creative choices they made were atrocious. But though the film had 8000 VFX shot it is really arguable that whether the VFX shots were up to the mark or not. If in a film VFX is too high then the scope of performance in very much low.

To overcome this belief Adipurush team must give very much importance to the performance in the film as well. The trailer of the movie consisted of 98 VFX shot while the movie has more than 4000. The trailer gives two quick and short glimpses of Ravana (lankesh in the film) while Lankesh lokks like a saint the makers of the film has kept the actual look of Ravana hidden. The reason might be the audience uproar over the look which was shown in the teaser that released last year. Renowned for their music in Marathi film Sairat and several Hindi film the duo Ajay and Atul is providing music for the epic. Before releasing in cinemas worldwide on 16th June in five languages the film will premiere in Tribeca Film Festival on 13th June.


Adipurush director Om raut has defended the criticism of the film VFX saying that it is only fit for big screen. Om Raut has said earlier that he is a big follower of Lord Ram, and he had done nothing wrong in the film. He has tampered with history and he calls this history proud history. He kept the purity of history while working on it. Ramanand Sagar Ramayana on Doordarshan had a great effect on him. Om Raut said that he added modernity to Ramayana. Adipurush will be released on 16th June 2023.
