Saif Ali Khan’s Tandav Can Be a Boon For Prabhas’s Adipurush
Saif Ali Khan’s Tandav, a political thriller today released on Amazon Prime Video. The Ali Abbas Zafar’s series was slammed for anti-Hindu portrayal supporting the leftist group. However, one thing that came out clear was that Saifoo was menacing in his role as an antagonist.
His villainy streak and deceptive trait glorify and even give a bit of glamour to his role. Naturally, the critics’ reviews for Saif are very good.
Faridoon Shahryar of Bollywood Hungama wrote, “At a crucial juncture, #SaifAliKhan says, “Ab is khel mein maza aane laga hai”. Right through the 9 episodes of #Tandav, Saif ensures that you’d savor his delicious villainy, subtle shift in character through a mere half-smile n a restless body language reeking of Ambition!”

And this appreciation and acceptance of Saif Ali Khan as the lead antagonist can be a big boon to Om Raut and Prabhas’s Adipurush.

Saif Ali Khan’s Menacing Ravan Can Enhance Prabhas’s Character As Adipurush
As has been said by Om Raut, Adipurush is all about legendary Ayodhya King Rama, his wife Sita, and Lanka King Ravana. Prabhas portrayed the larger than life role in Baahubali with aplomb. But SS Rajamouli made sure that the antagonist played by Rana Daggubati looks threatening and ruthless enough so that the heroism of Baahubali gets appreciation.
After Tanhaji, with Tandav Saif Ali Khan has once again proved that when it comes to playing sophisticated as well as traditional villainous characters, he can always go a notch higher than expectations. And even Om Raut has this faith in the Nawab of Pataudi which is why he roped him in Adipurush to play Ravana.

With Saif playing Ravana, Prabhas as Ram can surely get the balance that is so much necessary when it comes to a big-budget movie. With VFX technology playing a crucial role in modern cinematic presentations and expressions, actors who can underplay and portray characters with their natural magnetism and sheer body language are always a plus point.
