The highly anticipated teaser of Prabhas' next film, Adipurush has been released and it looks quite underwhelming. The teaser lacks finesse and doesn't really hold our attention to the fullest. Prabhas seems to have delivered a good performance, but his beefed-up look could have been etched out in a more likeable fashion. Saif Ali Khan's animated face and makeover as Lankesh doesn't land well with the audience. The problem here is that Adipurush was initially said to be a live action film with some interesting fantasy elements, but the teaser is full of animation and this has come as a big disapppointment for the fans. Kriti Sanon plays the female lead.
The animation work also doesn't really look that effective to keep us hooked. The teaser has opened to a very mixed response from the film buffs and the team has a herculean task ahead now. Let us hope that the trailer and the upcoming promotional materials manage to impress the masses. Adipurush is directed by Om Raut who earlier made the historical epic, Tanhaji, starring Ajay Devgn. Produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar under the banner of T Series Films in association with Om Raut's Retrophiles, the film has music composed by Ajay - Atul.
Kharthik Palani who is currently working on Thalapathy Vijay's Varisu, is the cinematographer of this film, while the editing is taken care of by Ashish Mhatre and Apurva Motiwale Sahai. Adipurush is scheduled to hit the screens on January 12, 2023 for the festive occasion of Pongal / Sankranti and the film will be locking horns against Varisu at the box office. This film which has been originally shot in Hindi and Telugu, will have a dubbed release in Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam. The film will release in IMAX and 3D formats. Prabhas was last seen in Radhe Shyam which failed to strike gold at the box office. Check out the teaser of Adipurush here:
