Adhi Purush - Jai Shree Ram !

Tamil tinseldom aka Kollywood was far different a century ago ! – most films were based on PUranas and Hinduism was held high .. here is a list of films released in 1934 :    Bama Vijayam, Dasavathaaram, Draupadhi Vastrapaharanam, Pavalakkodi, Sakkubai,  Sakuntala, Sangeetha Lava Kusa, Sathi Sulochana, Seetha Kalyanam, Seetha Vanavaasam, Sri Krishnaleela, Srinivaasa Kalyaanam .. .. .. today it is a much changed ground !!  Telegu tinseldom is daringly different

Ayodhya was recreated in Tirupati on Tuesday and the temple town of Tirupati, which usually resounds with the chants of ‘Govinda Govinda’, for a change reverberated with the chants of ‘Jai Sriram’  !!

Rāmāyaa is the epic Maha kavyam  of the richest and longest surviving civilization on the face of the planet. The essence of Rāmāyaa can be boiled down to two words: Plurality and Righteousness.  Here is how sage Naradha describes the MaryathapurushSreeRamachandramurthy

इक्ष्वाकुवंशप्रभवो  -  रामोनामजनैःश्रुतः।

नियतात्मामहावीर्यो  -  द्युतिमान्धृतिमान्वशी॥

He is born into the lineage of Ikshwāku. He is known to all by the name Rāma. He has complete mastery over himself. He is a man of great valour. He is of brilliant radiance. He is extremely courageous. He has complete mastery over his senses.

The much awaited 'Adipurush' is set to hit the screens soon and the countdown for its release has already begun! A grand event was held yesterday to unveil the film's final trailer and it was attended by the film's cast and crew. Kriti Sanon along with Prabhas and director Om Raut launched the new trailer.

It has made the entire tinseldom standup and look for the meticulous planning as also the   amount of money that has gone into this grand trailer launch is equivalent to Kriti's fees for the film. The event was conducted at Tirupati on a grand scale. The entire team was present and Prabhas' fans came in large numbers. A report suggests that about 50 lakhs was just spent on the firecrackers used for the event. About 2.5 crore was spent for the grand launch at the Shri Venkateswara University stadium at Tirupati. Kriti reportedly is paid around  3 crores for the film.

The stage was all set for the pre-release event of Prabhas and Kriti Sanon’s highly-anticipated mythological magnum opus, Adipurush, in Tirupati.  Grand arrangements had been made after meticulous planning and even the cast and crew have landed from Mumbai for the mega event. But then the massive rain started pouring threatening to spoil the mega night.  However, thousands of fans who had thronged the venue just neglected the rain. Prabhas fans were excited to catch a glimpse of their favorite hero before they see him in his full glory as Lord Rama. Young filmmaker Prashanth Varma, who is directing the event, had earlier mentioned that Prabhas’ entry in the event will be a pleasant surprise and memorable for fans.  

Adipurush is an upcoming Indian epic mythological film based on the Ithihasam  Ramayana.  The film is written and directed by Om Raut and produced by T-Series and Retrophiles. Shot simultaneously in Hindi and Telugu languages, the film stars Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and others. Adipurush was announced in Aug 2020, through an official motion poster. Principal photography commenced in February 2021 and ended in November 2021 taking place primarily in Mumbai. The film's music is composed by Ajay–Atul. Adipurush is budgeted at ₹500 crore making it one of the most expensive Indian films ever made.  The film is scheduled to be theatrically released on 16 June 2023.

An amount of ₹250 crore is estimated to be spent on visual effects. The music for both the Hindi and Telugu versions of the film is composed by Ajay-Atul and Sachet–Parampara. The first single titled "Jai Shri Ram" was released in its short version in Apr 2023 on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti.

In a pre-release event at Tirupati Venkateswara University Grounds, Sri Sri Sri Tridandi Chinna Srimannarayana Ramanuja Jeeyar Swamiji blessed Prabhas and his team for their upcoming mythological film, 'Adipurush.' Swamiji's speech focused on the importance of embodying the virtues of Lord Rama and encouraged the youth to emulate his ideals. He emphasized that Rama's greatness lies in his virtuous behavior as a human and that individuals have the potential to manifest such qualities. Swamiji shared the story of Shurpanakha to illustrate how Rama's goodness transcends boundaries and garners affection from all living beings.

Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji stressed that every individual possesses the potential to manifest the qualities of Lord Rama, the epitome of righteousness. Rama's character exemplifies the ideals of an ideal man, a modern man who embraces his humanity while upholding moral principles. Swamiji explained that Rama's divinity lies in the fact that he chose to incarnate as a human to demonstrate that individuals can follow the path of righteousness and become ideals themselves.
