Why is the movie Adipurush doomed to fail?

There is a lot of hoopla around the movie Adipurush which is going to release on the coming Friday. The initial trailer of the movie had greatly disappointed fans leading the film makers to delay the release. With the improved VFX, the film is slated for release this week. Many celebrities are doing mass-bookings and the film seems to be riding high on all the positivity that it exudes. However, I feel that the film is going to come crashing down on the box office once the initial hype gives way. Here are the reasons.

Extremely poor VFX

Though the VFX is told to have been fixed, but it is hardly up to the mark. To be honest, the VFX is dreadful. Prabhas who appeared flawless in Bahubali is appearing below average. It is the VFX that is making him look so ordinary. All other characters are also not very pleasing to the eye. Barring Kriti Sanon, no one is looking the part.

Poor Writing

The writing of the movie seems to be very average. The holy epic whose every line is considered sacred cannot be presented with weak writing. The dialogues appear very weak. When I saw the original Ramayana for the first time, the heavenly voice of Arun Govil swept me away. I was so enamored with the voice that it kept looping in my head for a long time. Such was the casting and attention to detail in the original Ramayana. Here, Prabha’s voice appears more of a great warrior but as we know lord Rama is as much an embodiment of goodness, humility etc. as he was of courage and strength. It seems the movie is rushed through and is not given the time and attention it should have been given.

Poor Casting

The casting looks weak. Laxman’s character in particular looks very weak. Also, Saif Ali Khan, I believe is an overrated and a very limited actor. He is good in few genres only and he has already done lot of such movies. He enacts evil with being clownish. His character in Tanhanji was a classical example of a casting goof up. He appeared a person who is forcefully trying to be cruel. With him, everything appears forced and structured and not natural.

Initial hype is PR made

I get a feeling that the filmmakers have accepted that the movie is going to flop. PR has been set into motion to give it a massive opening before the true feedback comes out in public domain. That is why I believe the movie can open well but the content will bring it down sooner.

What Sushant Singh Rajput’s death teaches us?

• That there are people who can take advantage of anything to further one’s agenda – Beware of them.

• That we are ignorant about mental health issues – Anyone can suffer from any problem.

• That we are a patriarchal society – Stop finding easy excuses or culprits. Go to the root of the issue. Things are not always as we want them to be.

• That we are strongly biased, and logic is the least used faculty – Apply logic and not instinct.

• That Bollywood has its share of problems – Bring reforms, structure, and have more acceptance towards everyone.

• That choosing to not react regardless of who you are is a personal choice – Don’t judge people for their personal choices.

• That choosing to react the way you do regardless of who you are is a personal choice – Don’t judge people for their personal choices.

• That not all celebrities or rich people are evil – Rich doesn’t mean evil.

• That not all general people are good – There are a lot of stupid people around us.

• That TV journalism (largely) is evil and agenda driven. – Don’t watch it.

• That we don’t respect the law and let it function – Trust your institutions, stop gossiping. If you have a different viewpoint, raise it objectively.

• That we enjoy drama and sensation – Curb this inner instinct.

• That we are essentially either blind followers or trolls – Stop that.

• That we love to hate – Stop that.

• That we need a tragedy to realize the value of a person or his talent – Appreciate talent at the right time. This is for the people who became Sushant Singh Rajput’s fan after his death.

• That we are always waiting for an opportunity to start hating people – Stop that.

• That we have some sort of inherent hatred for people who are successful than us – Get over it.

• That we love to make people fall – Don’t enjoy seeing people fall. Even if someone has done wrong and he or she gets her due, just be gracious that justice is done. Don’t enjoy that.

• That an unsuccessful person always thinks that he or she didn’t get what he or she deserved because of the flawed system – Stop blaming your failures on everything else except you. Maybe you were not good. Maybe others were better than you. Maybe you are meant for something else.

• That the system sometimes can actually be unfair – Maybe you were hard done. But then, never lose hope and constantly work to fix the systemic issue as per your ability.

• That you are more than what you become or what people know you for and all other shit – Just have a go at life and keep going.
