Well, fans didn’t miss the part which featured Prabhas and Kriti Sanon. They have also noticed the change in colour grade. For those who don’t know, the makers, in October last year, faced backlash from many on social media after Adipurush’s teaser was released. From calling the teaser’s VFX “poor” to “Sasta version of Game Of Thrones,” social media users have been trolling it since the day of its release. Now, fans were quick to spot the difference and shared their review on Twitter.
Sharing screenshots from the video, a user wrote, “Brightness kam aur colour tone warm kar dene se vfx & cgi improve nahi hota, right?”

Acknowledging the difference in colour grading and improved VFX, a person said, “The way #Adipurush marketing team is promoting new and improved teaser VFX is laughable and sad as they don’t take account for what they made! There is huge difference in colour grading and improved VFX but what about creative choices they made ?”
