The Internet broke only a few hours after the teaser for the timeless Hindu Saga ‘Adipurush’ was released and memes trolling the poor VFX and copied scenes started pouring on social media.

Directed by Om Raut, Adipurush has Telugu star Prabhas as Lord Rama and Saif Ali Khan has been cast to play the role of Lankesh Ravana. Kriti Sanon will be seen in the film as Sita.

Given the Prabhas’s fanbase, a lot of hype was created for the movie and once the teaser was released, people just could not control what they saw. Several elements of the film including the VFX of the film, Saif Ali Khan’s hairstyle, and the movie looking much like a video game began mushrooming on several social media platforms.

A Twitter user wrote I think they wanted to make a horrible movie but instead managed to make it worse. Another one compared Saif’s hairstyle to those of Mughal invaders.

Twitter also saw a bunch of memes on how the movie’s scenes were copied from Hollywood movies and series like King Kong, and Game of Thrones. While many were worried about how the producers made such a mess of VFX after spending a sum of more than Rs 500 crore, as it looked like an animation movie.

A tweet reads, after watching this teaser my Respect for Chota Bheem, Little Krisha, Jai Hanuman and Bal Ganesh increased by 100000%…..Hats off to Animators.

Making fun of how unreal the VFX was a Twitter user said, excellent VFX in Adipurush teaser. The VFX artist must be a topper student at White Hat Junior.

Adipurush will release on January 12, 2023, in Hindi and Telugu, along with dubbed versions in Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. Earlier, the movie was set to release on August 11, 2022, but got delayed later as its release date coincided with that of Laal Singh Chaddha.
