The 10-year dream of director Ayan Mukherjee, who gave Bollywood hits like ‘Wake Up Sid’ and ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, has finally come true today. The movie ‘Brahmastra’ has been released in theatres. Ayan Mukerji has spent eight years working on this ambitious mythological fantasy adventure film. Before the release of the film, Ayan said that till about two days ago, he was busy in finalizing the film. After so many years of hard work, it is necessary to discuss how much justice Ayan Mukerji has been able to do with ‘Brahmastra Part One: Shiva’. However, reviews of the film have been praising Ayan Mukherjee for trying to give cinema fans a visual treat by making this film based on Indian mythology.

Ayane took a new initiative

Fans, cinema lovers and also the box office have huge expectations from ‘Brahmastra’. There is no doubt that this film will be a visual treat for the audience. Ayaan has taken a new initiative in the Hindi film industry, which has so far stayed away from fantasy films in general. However, Ayan seems to have paid little attention to the story of the film in the midst of giving more emphasis to the visual effects.

The story of the first part of ‘Brahmastra’

The story of the film revolves around Brahmastra, the god of arrows gifted to sages and sages, whose protection is the responsibility of his protectors i.e. Brahman. There are three fragments of this Brahmastra which are secured by different members of the universe. These members of the universe include scientist Mohan Bhargava (Shah Rukh Khan), artist Anish (Nagarjuna) and Mastamoula DJ Shiva (Ranbir Kapoor). This first part of ‘Brahmastra’ is based on Shiva’s journey. Shiva realizes his powers thanks to his guru (Amitabh Bachchan) and lover Isha (Alia Bhatt). On the other hand Junoon (Mouni Roy), who worships the god of darkness, wants to get the three pieces of Brahmastra at any cost. Will Junoon succeed in his plan or will Shiva stop him? This is the essence of the film.

Review of ‘Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva’

The story of ‘Brahmastra’ is written by Ayan Mukherjee. The story has a lot to tell but the way it is channeled into the screenplay seems complicated. The film shows the battle to get the Brahmastra but the film moves on without going into the depth of many questions like how the Brahmastra came to be and what is the motive behind it. In the film, the Brahmins fight with their superpowers to protect the pieces of Brahmastra only. No emphasis has been placed on their contribution to the world, society and people. Apart from the main characters, the general public does not appear in the film. The love story of Isha and Shivaay is an important part of the film but it could not be that attractive. The chemistry between Ranbir and Alia doesn’t leave much of an impression.

Dialogues weak

Hussain Dalal, the dialogue writer, proved to be the weakest aspect of the film. As grand and engaging as the film is, its dialogues are simple. The film’s fast pace, superb VFX, energetic action scenes and Pritam’s already hit songs like Kesaria, Deva Deva and Ishq Ka Bhoot along with the background score overcome the shortcomings of the screenplay to a great extent. The film gives a great cinematic experience on the big screen.


Talking about acting, Ranbir Kapoor has poured life into his character. The same applies to Mouni Roy who appeared in a negative role. However, Alia Bhatt could not do justice to her talent in the film. She seems to be just talking without feeling the dialogue. Amitabh Bachchan has acted with perfection in the role of Guruji. Shah Rukh Khan’s cameo is the surprise package of the film. Writer-director Ayan Mukherjee could not make enough use of Nagarjuna as Nandi Astra.

Why should you watch?

All in all ‘Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva’ is a visual treat. If you want to have a great visual experience on the cinema screen, you must watch the film. If you want to see the real life couple of Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor on screen, you should definitely go to the theater.
