In a recent turn of criticism surrounding the highly anticipated film ‘Adipurush,’ popular folk singer Neha Singh Rathore has released a song “Dhatt Teree Kee Writer maooga.. (Dhatt Teree Kee Writer maooga…)!” for Manoj Muntashir that has stirred up a controversy. Meanwhile, the film’s writer, Manoj Muntashir, finds himself facing criticism for allegedly deviating from the essence of the revered Hindu epic, Ramayana.
Initially, Manoj Muntashir had claimed that he meticulously studied Valmiki’s Ramayana to ensure the film maintained its authenticity. He stated that every dialogue was crafted with utmost care and respect, even going as far as removing his shoes and slippers while writing. However, viewers have expressed disappointment, accusing the writer of not staying true to the original narrative.
Muntashir’s portrayal of certain aspects of the film has drawn ire from the audience, with many questioning the writer’s apparent mockery of the Sanatana dharma, the eternal religious and spiritual traditions of Hinduism. When confronted about these concerns, Muntashir deflected the blame onto the film’s director, Om Raut, stating that he should be held accountable for initiating these creative choices.
When asked to clarify his position, Muntashir staunchly refused to apologize for his work on ‘Adipurush,’ stating that he stands by his decisions. He emphasized that the film intends to present Ramayana in its purest form, without any attempts to modernize or dilute its essence.
However, as the controversy deepens, Muntashir’s statements seem to be inconsistent and contradictory. Initially promoting ‘Adipurush’ as a faithful adaptation of Ramayana, he now claims that the film is merely inspired by the epic and not a direct retelling.
This ongoing saga has left fans and followers perplexed as they witness the writer’s continuous alteration of his stance regarding the film. The evolving narrative surrounding ‘Adipurush’ has resulted in a sense of disillusionment among viewers, who had hoped for a faithful and respectful cinematic portrayal of the beloved Ramayana.
As the debate rages on, it remains to be seen how this controversy will impact the reception and ultimate success of ‘Adipurush.’ The film, which boasts a star-studded cast and high production values, has generated considerable buzz, and the public’s expectations are soaring.
