Brahmastra: A different experience of the highest budget film in Bollywood history

First of all, ‘Brahmastra’ is a big screen film. If you don’t see it on the big screen, you won’t get all the fun of this film. Director Ayan Mukherjee has made this ‘Brahmastra’ little by little for almost 10 years. The young Bengali who started his film career as an assistant to brother-in-law Ashutosh Gowarik in the film Swadesh, released in 2004, became the director of the highest budget film in Bollywood history before 40. It can be thought!

How many discussions about the budget and casting before the release of ‘Brahmastra’. What is the highest budget film in Bollywood history? myth? action? Love? Adventure or fantasy? Or is it the fat-burning formula story that has been going on in Bollywood for years?

Before going into the discussion, it would be good to give a short glimpse of the story. Shiva (Ranbir Kapoor) grew up in an orphanage in Mumbai. Now he is a DJ. At a festival, Dulali met Isha (Alia Bhatt), a wealthy Bengali. Love at first sight. On this night Shiva feels that he has some miraculous power. Even fire cannot burn him. He also sees many things in his dreams. In one such dream, he witnesses the murder of scientist Mohan Bhargava (Shah Rukh Khan). He is killed by Junoon (Mouni Roy) in the balcony of his house. His only goal is to find the ‘Brahmastra’ which is broken into three pieces. If these three pieces can be united, Junun and his guru Brahmadev will be able to conquer the whole world. Junun is so desperate to find the three pieces of Brahmastra.

Again Shiva dreams that Junoon is going to kill the famous painter Anish Shetty (Nagarjuna). This artist has a piece of Brahmastra. Shiva and Isha travel to Varanasi to save Anish. To know the rest, you have to see the picture.
Love is the greatest weapon, the power of love is the real Brahmastra – this is the statement of ‘Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva’ made on a budget of around Rs 410 crore. In the first ten minutes, the hero of the film will be Shahrukh Khan or Nagarjuna? The clapping and whistling of the audience in the cinema hall says, the word ‘boycott’ is ignored here. The Shahrukh of the nineties, Nagarjuna of the South has not lost its popularity.
As long as Shah Rukh, Nagarjuna were on screen, the audience cheered too. Many of the audience said, ‘I would not have liked anyone else in this role except Shah Rukh. Shah Rukh Khan’s cameo adds to the glamor of this film. Then the current stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt took their place. At one point Amitabh took the story forward.

If we talk about acting, then Brahmastra will be ahead with good numbers in terms of casting. However, apart from Ranveer, others were not used much. However, Ranveer’s performance sometimes feels like a younger version of Sanjay Dutt. Maybe the film was shot around the time Sanjay Dutt’s biopic Sanju was shot, the impact remains. Shahrukh Khan and Nagarjuna have done justice to the names. Both of them batted great as the opening batsman in the marquee of the big team! As much as Amitabh Bachchan could not beat. Even until the last scene, he felt like he was playing in an unfamiliar field. Even if Alia doesn’t get ‘A plus’, she can still get ‘A’. Mouni Roy has done well as ‘Naveen’ in the negative role. Dimple Kapadia did not get a chance to act in that sense. Deepika Padukone was seen as Shiva’s mother in ‘Brahmastra’. He may be seen in detail in the next episodes.
