The much-awaited first teaser of Prabhas starrer Adipurush is here. Starring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, Saif Ali Khan and Sunny Singh, the film has grabbed the eyeballs since its inception. After dropping the much first poster earlier this week in which Prabhas plays Lord Ram, fans finally have a glimpse into the world of Ramayana by Om Raut. The much-anticipated teaser was unveiled on October 2 on the banks of river Sarayu in the holy land of Lord Ram, Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh. The grand event had the attendance of superstar Prabhas and Kriti Sanon along with director Om Raut and producer Bhushan Kumar.
The teaser opens with a wide glimpse at a sea where Lord Ram (Prabhas) is meditating underwater. He uses his bow and arrow in order to kill the demons. The timeless story of good vs evil, justice vs injustice. We get a glimpse of Saif Ali Khan as Ravana and his ten heads. Kriti Sanon makes an appearance as Sita whereas Sunny Singh plays Lord Lakshman. The teaser goes back and forth between Vanar sena, Lord Ram heading to fight against Ravana who has captured Sita. The scenes from the sea, battles and more add impact. The teaser is heavy on visual effects. The Hindi teaser has Sharad Kelkar’s voice-over.
Earlier in the day, a source told Bollywood Hungama, “The team of the film will walk from a specially constructed bridge on the River Sarayu. They’ll come on the stage after which a giant poster of the film, which is 50 feet in size, will be unveiled. Then on a screen, the teaser will be shown. Interestingly, the promo will be played in all the five versions – Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam – one after another.”
The source revealed that the first-look event of this scale has never happened before for a film in India. The source stated, “Around 10,000 people are expected to witness the event. 250 policemen and 200 bouncers have been deployed. We are confident that this event will be talked about and will be remembered for years to come.”
The film is based on Ramayana, showcasing the triumph of good over evil. This religious town where the launch event will take place in Uttar Pradesh is also the birthplace of Lord Ram, making the location much more relevant for this grand event.
Produced by T-Series Films and Retrophiles, the film features Prabhas as Lord Ram, while Kriti plays the role of Janaki (Sita). It also stars Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh and Sunny Singh as Lakshman. Adipurush is a visual extravaganza slated to release on January 12, 2023, in IMAX and 3D. It will release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam in theatres.
