After a long wait, Bhumi Pednekar starrer Durgamati has released today on Amazon Prime Video. The horror film has been in the news from day 1 owing to various reasons including a change in the name and it being a remake of a Telugu film, Bhaagamathie starring Anushka Shetty. Now, as the film has hit the OTT platform, reviews have started to come in and well, Twitterati does not seem much impressed with the Hindi remake of the Telugu film. 

While the film revolves around a myth about Durgamati, it delves into the horror genre and does try to spook the audiences. Starring actors like Karan Kapadia, Arshad Warsi, Jisshu Sengupta, Mahie Gill apart from Bhumi, Durgamati takes us through the world of politics as well as the corruption involved in it. While performances of Bhumi and Arshad in the film are being praised, the fans who have seen the South original starring Anushka don't seem very much pleased with it. 

Many have been recommending Bhaagamathie instead of Durgamati. A user wrote, "Just watched Durgamati all i can say is there is no creativity. All the scenes seemed like copy pasted. Bhumi couldn’t match the powerful performance of Anushka. Anushka’s was phenomenal in Bhaagamathie.Bgm was ok though. #Durgamati #AnushkaShetty #BhumiPednekar @MsAnushkaShetty." Another wrote, "A decent try #Durgamati After watching the Telugu Movie Bhagamatgie this looks dull but It's a one time watch if you have not seen the original movie The positives of the movie is Copied Story and the best entertainer #arshadwarsi ."

Take a look at the Twitter reaction to Durgamati:

Meanwhile, the film's promotions had begun when the trailer was released.
