Om Raut’s first Hindi film Tanhaji (2020) saw the extensive use of visual effects. The makers of his next movie, Adipurush, are planning to go even further. They have claimed that the technology used in the film has never been seen before in Indian cinema.
The director has commenced shooting the motion capture aspects of the film. The motion-capture process enables the actions of human actors to be recorded and allows animators to use this information to bring to life digital character models.
Producer Bhushan Kumar of T-Series said in a statement, “At T-Series, we have always encouraged new ideas and concepts and this, coupled with cutting-edge technology, paves the way for the future of filmmaking. Om and his team are creating an entire world of Adipurush with the latest technology, commonly used in international cinema but will be explored in Indian filmmaking for the first time. We are proud to bring to our audiences — Adipurush.”
Adipurush explores the story of the Indian epic Ramayana. It stars Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan in the roles of Ram and Ravan respectively.
Revealing a bit more about the technology, producer Prasad Sutar added, “High-end visual effects combined with real-time technology is commonly used in international films and this always helps filmmakers narrate their story. To create the world of Adipurush and to tell the epic tale, we are bringing together the same. Adipurush is a huge mission for all of us and we are looking forward to embarking on this journey with Bhushanji (sic).”
The mahurat of Adipurush will take place on 2 February 2021.
