Om Raut’s Adipurush, which was released across the globe on Friday, June 16, has become the most talked about topic on social media. Even though the movie managed to get a blockbuster start at the box office with nearly INR 300 crore to its kitty globally, however, it has received a huge backlash from the fans because of its VFX and dialogues.


Among many, fans are voicing their displeasure over a few dialogues, especially from Hanuman Ji’s Lanka Dahan Scene. One of the users wrote:

“*Lanka Dahan Scene* Ravana’s son lights up Hanuman’s Tail: Jali na… Jiski jalti hai… Bajrang: Kapda tere baap ka. Tel tere baap ka. Aag bhi tere baap ki. Toh jalegi bhi tere baap ki. The makers are proud of these Chapri dialogues? They want kids to see this?”


Besides the Lanka Dahen Scene, in another scene, a mythological character says,

“Jo humari behno ko haath lagaayenge, unki Lanka laga denge.”


Meanwhile, after receiving backlash on the dialogues of the movie, the dialogue writer of the film, Manoj Muntashir speaks up

In an interview, he asserted that the oversimplification of the words wasn’t an error. Speaking to the Republic World, Muntashir said that a completely meticulous thought process went into the process of writing. He said,

“It is not an error.”

“A very meticulous thought process that has gone into writing the dialogues for Bajrangbali. We have made it simple because we have to understand one thing (that) if there are multiple characters in a film, all of them can’t speak the language. There has to be a kind of diversion, a division.”


Further, when he was asked about Hanuman’s dialogue during the ‘Lanka Dahan’ scene in Adipurush, Muntashir said:

“How do we all know the Ramayana? We have the tradition of katha vaachan (storytelling), we read also but there is a vaachan parampara (the tradition of storytelling). Ramayan is the kind of granth (book) which we have heard from our very childhood, there is Akhand Ramayan, paath and many other things. I come from a small village where our grandmothers used to tell us stories from Ramayan in this language. One more thing, the dialogue that you just mentioned, it has been used by the greatest saints, storytellers in our country in the same manner as I have written it (in Adipurush). I am not the first one to write this dialogue, it is already there.”
