A trailer that we have been eagerly waiting for, Brahmastra is finally out and what a grand experience! The trailer opens with mind boggling snippets from the movie, shows off impressive visual effects and out-of-the world VFX, promising action sequences, romance and drama. Director Ayan Mukherji’s passion project is based on modern take on ancient Indian Mythology.
The story revolves around Astraverse, a character played by Ranbir Kapoor that has to fight to save this world from darkness. Brahmastra hosts an ensemble of actors including Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, Nagarjuna and Divyendu. The film is the first part of a trilogy that will roll out as time unfolds. The grandeur storytelling in the almost-three minute trailer is beautifully executed in the voice of Amitabh Bachchan. The music by Pritam and singer Arijit is already trending as Kesariya.
Although grandeur, the trailer under criticism has much to be judged upon. The underwhelming factors though were the monotonous background score, the awkward dialogue deliveries and a possibility of the movie have taken on more elements than what it can handle. There is a chance that the extra cooks may spoil the broth but oly time will tell whether it does or not. I personally loved Mouni’s character and have high hopes from the upcoming supporting cast.
Trailer offers a lot and yet doesn’t give out too much of the story. It also hints to a romantic angle of the movie and hopefully that doesn’t deteriorate the storytelling. The bringing together of such massive projects are very risky due but at the same time such new age films could be the breakthrough required in Bollywood. As audience, we should expect goodness from a project as unique as this one and hope to get entertained.
Brahmāstra is all set to release on the 9th of September. You can catch the trailer here:
