South sensation Prabhas starrer Adipurush finally arrived in theatres on Friday and his fans thronged in large numbers to watch him in the role of Lord Ram.

After the release of the film, several incidents from the theatres have taken the internet by storm.

A video captured outside the theatre in Hyderabad shows a man sharing his review after watching the movie. He could be heard saying in Telugu, "They have kept all monsters from playstation games in this movie. There is nothing good in the film except for Hanuman, the background score and some 3D shots." He further added that Prabhas was didn't suit for the lead role of Lord Ram. “In Baahubali, he was like a king and there was a royalty. Seeing the royalty in that, they took him for this role. Om Raut did not show Prabhas properly,” he added.
Soon after, Prabhas’ fans who heard his negative review became violent and began thrashing him violently. The man suffered an injury on his head and face and was rushed to a nearby hospital. Meanwhile, several other incidents including a man thrashed for sitting on a vacant Hanuman seat, a monkey entering a theatre and fans smashing glasses of movie theatre among others surfaced on the internet.
