The Indian Bollywood movie Adipurush is inspired by the epic Ramayana. Produced by T-Series Films and Retrophiles, the movie is directed by Om Raut. Telugu and Hindi languages were both shot at the same time. The movie features Prabhas as Raghav (Lord Ram), Kriti Sanon as Janaki (Sita), and Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh (Ravana). The film was released on June 16, 2023, and in its first show itself, Lord Hanuman, the ultimate devotee of Lord Ram and the son of Anjani, showcased his miracles. Recently, a video has been going viral on social media, showing a monkey entering a cinema hall and watching the movie Adipurush on the screen.
In the viral video, as soon as the monkey enters the cinema hall, all the moviegoers’ attention is drawn towards the monkey, and they begin chanting “Jai Shri Ram” (Hail Lord Ram) slogans. The monkey also continues to watch the ongoing film Adipurush on the screen. Watching this scene in the video gives the impression as if Lord Hanuman, the great devotee of Lord Ram, himself has appeared to listen to the story of Lord Ram. This is an extremely exciting and astonishing sight and has been witnessed for the first time.
The film Adipurush presents the story of the Ramayana, which depicts the tale of Lord Ram, whose wife Sita was abducted by the evil Ravana. Lord Ram seeks the help of the Vanara (monkey) army to rescue Sita, and Kriti recently discussed her role as Janaki (Sita) in the retelling of the Ramayana. She mentioned that the scale and magnitude of Om Raut’s direction are on a grand scale, and this film will be a “visually spectacular experience” for the audience. However, she also jokingly mentioned that she was shooting the “biggest film on the smallest set” as the entire film was shot in a studio. The movie Adipurush has garnered immense attention and praise for its visually stunning portrayal of the epic Ramayana.
