Chennai – : Adipurush has created a buzz not only because of its star-studded cast and captivating trailer but also due to its ambitious production value. The film promises to bring the epic tale of Ramayana to life with stunning visuals, elaborate sets, and intense action sequences. The scale of the project has garnered attention from both critics and fans, raising expectations for a grand cinematic experience.
Adipurush, the highly anticipated film directed by Om Raut and produced by Bhushan Kumar, is generating immense excitement among fans as its release is just three days away. The film, which is an adaptation of the epic Ramayana, stars Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, and Saif Ali Khan in lead roles. It has received a U certification from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and has a runtime of 2 hours and 59 minutes.
The advance ticket sales for Adipurush have been remarkable, with approximately 62,000 tickets already sold for the opening day in popular theatre chains such as PVR, Inox, and Cinepolis. The Hindi version of the film alone has sold around 1.13 lakh tickets for the weekend, indicating strong advance bookings. The film aims to reach a total of 2.5 lakh tickets by Thursday night, which would make it one of the highest advances for a Hindi film.
According to Book My Show, over 800,000 people have shown interest in watching Adipurush. In comparison to other highly anticipated films like Pathaan, KGF 2, and Brahmastra, Adipurush has shown better momentum in terms of advance bookings, particularly in the Hindi market. If the film maintains its pace in on-the-spot bookings on the day of release, it is expected to have an opening collection of around Rs 25 to 30 crore in Hindi, which is considered very good for a non-holiday release. The long-term success of the film will depend on positive word of mouth from the audience.
While Adipurush has not included the South Indian market in its advance bookings due to its release in local languages as well, it has still managed to surpass the overall advance bookings of many big Bollywood films in the post-pandemic era, except for Pathaan and KGF 2. As a universal story like the Ramayana, Adipurush has the potential to reach the top 10 of all-time highest-grossing films, provided it delivers on the content front and receives strong word of mouth.
With its grand scale and gripping trailer, Adipurush has captivated audiences, and its release is eagerly awaited.
