Ram Gopal Varma says filmmakers are paying more for VFX hoping to get a better product, compares Hanuman and Adipurush’s budget and quality

Ram Gopal Varma, who has made films like Company, Satya, Rangeela, among many others, recently said movies with big budgets that require a significant amount of visual effects work, are sometimes just selecting their visual effects artists on the basis of their remuneration, and in this case, they look for the company that quotes the highest price. He said that since the filmmakers don’t know what goes into doing VFX, they just assume that the company charging more money will do a better job.

RGV said that a “famous director” shared with him that he had to choose a VFX company to do a particular sequence of his film and had a choice between a company that was charging Rs 25 crore and another that was charging Rs 35 crore. “The director told me ‘sir, I don’t know who can make it better. Both are big companies. I don’t know how VFX process is done, I am not an expert technician on that but after thinking, we decided to go with the Rs 35 crore company only because we had the money. We thought the more they ask, the better they will do’,” he shared with Film Companion.

Citing the example of Adipurush and Hanuman, RGV said that while Adipurush was made on an astronomical budget, the budget of Hanuman was much lesser but the results of both these films was quite evident. Adipurush was criticised for its poor VFX scenes and Hanuman was praised for achieving high quality work despite limited budget. “Now Adipurush is done by a foreign company and god knows how many hundreds of crores and this guy, Prashanth Varma (Hanuman director) got it done in Karimnagar town or wherever they made it,” he said.

RGV further said that he had a suspicion that Hanuman was made in lesser money than what was claimed. Prashanth had previously said that he made the film in Rs 40 crore. “I have a suspicion that Prashanth Varma made the film in even lesser cost, much lesser cost because these days you are scared to say lesser cost because they might say cheap film, koi aayega nahi (no one will come). But in comparison, no matter how much he says, compared to Adipurush, it is a super cheap film, and we know the results at the end of the day,” RGV said.

Hanuman made Rs 295 crore worldwide on a budget of Rs 40 crore while Adipurush made Rs 393 crore on a reported budget of Rs 500 crore.
