The highly anticipated film ‘Adipurush,’ starring Telugu superstar Prabhas, has finally released in theaters worldwide. Helmed by director Om Raut, the mythological drama offers a fresh retelling of the Hindu epic, Ramayan. Prabhas portrays the iconic role of Lord Ram, while Kriti Sanon shines as Sita, Sunny Singh plays Lakshman, and Saif Ali Khan brings the character of Ravan to life.
With a whopping budget of Rs 500 crore, ‘Adipurush’ has garnered significant attention. On its opening day, the film recorded an impressive pre-booking business of Rs 12 crore. Leading national theater chain PVR alone sold over one lakh tickets in the Hindi market, indicating a massive response from audiences across the country.
Renowned film trade analyst Girish Johar estimates the film’s opening day collection to reach Rs 50 crore, encompassing all languages. Speaking about the deep-rooted connection Indians have with the epic Ramayan, film trade expert Taran Adarsh expressed, “For me, the most important thing is not Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, or Saif Ali Khan. For me, it is Ramayan, and it is a very strong emotion. Everything else is secondary.” Adarsh believes that many viewers will resonate with this emotional attachment while watching the film. Recent reports even suggest that the first-day collection may surpass the opening day earnings of Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Pathaan.’
‘Adipurush’ narrates the captivating tale of Lord Ram, who embarks on a mission to rescue his wife Sita after she is abducted by the evil Ravana. With the assistance of the mighty vanara army, he successfully brings her back to Ayodhya. Kriti Sanon, who plays the role of Janaki (Sita), has expressed her excitement about being a part of the project, highlighting the grandeur and visual spectacle the film offers. She humorously mentioned shooting for her “biggest film on the smallest set” since the entire movie was filmed in a studio.
Social media platforms have been buzzing with reviews from audiences who have watched ‘Adipurush.’ Users praised the film’s cinematography, background music, visuals, and graphics. They commended the stellar performances of Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, and Saif Ali Khan, terming them “awesome” and “outstanding.” Several users emphasized the grand scale and modern presentation of the timeless Ramayan tale, praising the film’s engrossing narrative and exceptional production values.
Producer Sreenivasa Kumar expressed his admiration for ‘Adipurush,’ describing it as a must-watch cinematic experience.

Kumar also lauded the inclusion of Lord Hanuman’s episodes and the efficient modern presentation of the timeless story. He encouraged viewers to showcase the film to their children to instill cultural pride and awareness.
As ‘Adipurush’ continues its theatrical run, fans eagerly await further box office updates and look forward to experiencing the grandeur and splendor of this modern retelling of Ramayan on the silver screen.
