Vishwajit Patil, a film critic, tweeted: “#AdipurushReview: Disappointing. #Adipurush is a monumental letdown… FIRST HALF DECLINES DUE TO POOR VFX AND WEAK CONTENT… Unfortunately, #Adipurush could have been a game-changer, but it’s a squandered opportunity… All veneer, no character. The worst performance by Prabha.”
