For the unversed, Manoj’s objectionable dialogues from Adipurush attracted harsh criticism from the public and critics who bashed the dialogue writer for making a mockery of the holy Ramayana.
Adipurush and controversies
From the very first day of its release, Adipurush made headlines for all the wrong reasons. The movie faced brutal criticism and trolling from critics, the masses, and celebrities who all had their fair share in bashing Om Raut’s directorial for its pathetic VFX, average acting, and most importantly its cheap dialogues like “Jalegi tere Baap ki”, “Teri Bua ka bagicha” and “Chal Nikal.”
The reaction of massive public outrage soon became visible in Adipurush’s box office performance as well when the movie’s collection started falling drastically even after having a very successful opening in its first extended weekend.
Following Adipurush’s dropping Box office collections and heavy criticism all over the internet, moviemakers tried to save their face by revising the movie’s dialogues and even went to the extent of lowering the price of its tickets.
However, none of that helped in halting the movie’s free fall at the box office as its collections only shrunk more and more with each passing day and the movie crashed down completely by the beginning of the second week of its theatrical run.
