It has always been said that Bollywood does not make Visually rich films as Hollywood does. People often make fun of Indian films which use VFX and compare it to Hollywood.
The truth is that Hollywood movies attract a large segment of the audience, and they have a better chance of recovering their budget. Indian filmmakers have a vision but fear budget recovery.
Brahmastra is a daring endeavour, it is a step forward towards achieving Hollywood-level cinema, and it must be appreciated. Ayan Mukherji with Brahmastra showed us that it is possible in Indian cinema as well.
The story of Brahmastra part one is about a boy Shiva(Ranbir Kapoor). He doesn’t know that he is special. Due to some incidents which happen between Dussehra and Diwali, he realizes his powers.
There is Amitabh Bachchan as Guru Raghu, and he is as good as he has always been. Shahrukh Khan and Nagarjuna have small but important roles, and their work is impressive as well. Apart from this, Mouni Roy and Saurav Gurjar are anti-hero characters they have done justice to their roles as well.
‘Brahmastra Part one: Shiva’ is a visually rich film. Direction is top-notch. The music and BGM are good, the story is somewhere between average to good. The first half is excellent, but the second half disappoints. Overall it is highly recommended to watch it in cinemas only. We are going with 3.5 stars for this Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt film.
