Simon Abrams RogerEbert.com Everything is big here, but nothing looks grand. Rated: 2/4 Jun 16, 2023 Full Review Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express It reduces Ramayan to a two-dimensional barrage of little feeling. Rated: 1.5/5 Jun 16, 2023 Full Review Anuj Kumar The Hindu Director Om Raut takes a leap of faith only to land in safe territory, while Prabhas looks the part but is too restrained to convey the inner turmoil of a man for whom virtue is more important than his life. Jan 3, 2024 Full Review Ishita Sengupta OTTplay Even then, Adipurush lacks ingenuity. This is saying something because the outing (mounted on a staggering budget of Rs 500 crores) stands on visual effects. But like most Hindi films the VFX is shaky and even jarring Jul 23, 2023 Full Review Tatsam Mukherjee The Wire (INDIA) Even if one were to somehow shut one’s senses to the film’s intent, Raut’s adaptation of the Hindu mythological epic, Ramayan, is one of the most tacky, perplexing and derivative attempts. Rated: 0/5 Jul 11, 2023 Full Review Nandini Ramnath Scroll.in The lack of chemistry between the leads is augmented by the heavily worked-upon backdrops and Manoj Muntashir’s pedestrian dialogue.

Sreekanth Great work by the whole team. The VFX is so nice as an Indian movie. Acting of everyone is so good. This can be watched one time. Kids will really enjoy the movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review theater_fan This is essentially “Marvel Style” adaptation of ancient Ramayan story. ENJOY the movie AS A movie. PROS : Strong Righteous Ram Character who can fight for Justice , defeat the worst enemy, live to tell the story, stay positive despite all obstacles in life. Great acting by Saif Ali Khan of Ravan , from beginning to end. SciFi depiction of Lanka and some action scenes are actually great. CONS : Very cheesy Chroma keying VFX of forest scenes , cheap rope tricks of Hanuman flying , very silly movie start stills (they could have used a flash back sequence instead), very silly Bollywood style bombastic background audio (they should have used more Foley artists and Dolby Atmos rendering to create an immersive experience), the monkey characters dressed like Star Wars characters look out of place. They should have titled the movie “Ram-verse 15000 AD” , a Ramayan SciFi movie in some distant galaxy, may be .. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review Rajrani It was an entertainer. A visit to Hindu mythological Ramayana with special affects. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/23/23 Full Review Shivani Not as expected, exaggerated a lot, not worth watching it Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/23/23 Full Review Prakash S could have put some life in to casts? Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/21/23 Full Review purnendu Modern Ramayana, good movie for the kids in terms of introducing Ramayana . Few things could have been improved with respect to dialogues and props etc. But overall great movie to watch . Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review Read all reviews
