Yet another trouble unfolded for the makers of Adipurush. On the release date of the film, the Om Raut directed Adipurush, landed into a legal issue.
On the 16th of June, Friday, the Hindu Sena filed a writ petition in the Delhi High Court (HC.) In the public interest litigation (PIL,) Mr. Vishnu Gupta, the President of the Hindu Sena, opposed some of the scenes of the movie, saying that the film should not be certified for public exhibition.
In the PIL, Mr. Vishnu Gupta said, “This is a writ petition in the shape of public interest litigation under article 226 of the Constitution of India praying for issuance of an appropriate writ in the nature of direction to the respondents for removal of objectionable scenes depicting religious leaders /characters/figures in bad taste and issues a writ of mandamus to the respondents directing them to not certify the feature film Adipurush for public exhibition and pass such other or further order as this hon’ble court may deem fit and proper in the facts and circumstances of the case.”
In the petition, he further said that several scenes of the film hurt the sentiments of the Hindu community. He also questioned the inaccurate and inappropriate filming of the scenes, which is a modified version of the Indian mythology Ramayana, authored by writers like Maharishi Valmiki, Saint Tulsidas.
The petition further stated the depiction of Ravana, Lord Ram, Mata Sita and Hanuman in the feature film Adipurush is contrary to the image and descriptions of these religious leaders /characters/figures as depicted in Maharishi Valmiki’s Ramayana and Tulsidas’ Ramcharitmanas. Claiming that many Indians are not strong financially, therefore the Hindu Sena is filing a PIL, on behalf of the people and in the interest of the public.
The film also gained a lot of criticism from the audience who went to watch the film, after it was released on the 16th of June. Many people took to social media and expressed their disappointment with the film and how it is not doing justice with the Indian mythology Ramayana.
Famous movie reviewer Saibal Chatterjee also said, the film looks like a mix version of “Marvels” and “The King Kong.”
