He has a strong screen presence but it appears to be wasted on an undeserving film.“
Anindita Mukherjee from India Today rated this movie 2.5 stars out of 5 stars and said “All in all, we can’t put a stamp on all the hype that Adipurush has been gathering, but it surely deserves one watch at the theatres. For Prabhas, if nothing else.” Avinash Lohana from PinkVilla rated this movie 2 stars out of 5 stars and said “Om Raut’s Adipurush is a sincere attempt but a not-so-sincere adaptation of Ramayana. Its biggest letdown is the writing, and could have done much better if it was divided into two parts.“
