Since its release, the movie Adipurush has been receiving backlash, criticism, and trolling. Viewers believe that this movie is a waste of money and is hurtful to Hindu sentiments. The audience is criticising the VFX effects, dialogues, costumes, etc. People feel that the dialogues are insulting and the whole movie is making fun of the holy book Ramayana. There are few dialogues in the movie that have become very controversial and people are not at all happy with it. There were a lot of appeals to the maker to change the dialogues.
Audience felt that the dialogues are rather ” tapori”. Viewers felt Hanuman Ji would never speak in such a way. Even the director was threatened by some people and was given security amidst the backlash. Recently, it was announced that some dialogues of the movie have been edited and changed to respect the audience’s demands. Here are the old and their edited versions-
Tu andar kaise ghusa… tu jaanta bhi hai kaun hoon main,
Tum andar kaise ghuse… tum jaante bhi ho kaun hoon main.
Kapda tere baap ka, tel tere baap ka, lanka tere baap ki, toh jalegi bhi tere baap ki
Kapda teri lanka ka, tel teri lanka ka, aag teri lanka ki toh jalegi bhi teri lanka hi
Mere ek sapole ne tumhare sheshnaag ko lamba kar diya
Mere ek sapole ne tumhare iss sheshnaag ko samapt kardiya
Jo humari behen ko hath lagayega, unki lanka laga denge
Jo humari behen ko hath lagayega, unki lanka me aag laga denge
Om Raut’s Adipurush after receiving so many criticisms managed to cross Rs 300 crore mark. Even after the trolling, people have been going to watch the movie. Appeals were made to Prime Minister Modi to ban the movie, but no action was taken.
