Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva Review
Brahmastra starts as a subtle love story, and smoothly swifts over a deep dark concept. The movie connects the dots between Shiva’s past and his life very well. The concept is fresh & promising, especially the VFX work is outstanding. The festive flair to the film has its pretty charm. The story goes through various locations from Delhi to Varanasi via Himachal Pradesh, and during this, the entire sequence of an attack on the car is quite thrilling.
Ayan has left many questions unanswered in part 1, hoping to fill us in the second part. The camerawork synced in perfectly, leaving us with zero dull moments. The music has already been much loved & enjoyed by the audience on social media. Even the background music was very compelling, Simon Franglen’s (Seven, Avatar, Titanic) orchestral track will give you goosebumps. Some pieces of Pritam’s songs too are converted into orchestra tracks that blend amazingly well with the visuals. Brahmastra is intense, fierce, and full of surprises.
Coming to the star performances, Ranbir and Alia share their remarkable chemistry on screen. Ranbir has done an amazing job with his role & Alia will make you fall in love with her character. The amount of charm they both bring into their characters, makes you connect with them well & invest in the story till the end. Nagarjuna’s talent is one of the coolest things you will witness on the big screen.
The biggest surprise to build your anticipation more is the cameo of Shah Rukh Khan and Dimple Kapadia. As usual, their performances are up to the mark.
Amitabh Bacchan and Mouni Roy are stunners and they make it hard for us to lay their eyes off them. Mouni is definitely the perfect cast for her character. With grand cameos, Brahmastra turns out to be even better than our expectations. Ayan Mukerji has successfully created a landmark moment in Indian cinema with the state-of-the-art VFX and under no circumstances should anyone miss it, it’s a must-watch for sure.
