Much-awaited Bollywood biggie Brahmastra, Part One: Shiva has hit the screens globally today. Let’s analyse it
The entire story revolves around three pieces of Bhramastra taken care by Brahmansh group. While one piece is safegaurded by Anish( Nagarjuna), the second peice will be with scientist Mohan Bhargav ( Shah Rukh Khan). To gain ultimate power by bringing all the three pieces together, the villain’s gang led by Mouni Roy’s character keeps on trying despite multiple failures. Whereabouts of the 3rd piece, how DJ Shiva (Ranbir) and his love story with Isha( Alia Bhatt) is interconnected to the story forms the crucial point of the plot.
Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt shine as the lead pair. The chemistry between them brings authentic texture to the love story. While Ranbir is good with his performance, Alia is also seen in a character which has scope to perform.
Stalwarts such as Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Shah Rukh Khan are fine in their given supporting roles. Their screen presence is undoubtedly an added advantage for the movie.
Mouni Roy as evil lady and her gang members are okay with their performances.
Majority of the VFX work is done in a perfect manner. For our Indian standards, graphics work is commendable.
The music department did a good job with the songs and all the songs in the film are good. On the other hand, the BGM fails to click many a times, due to which some key episodes are not elevated.
The cinematography work is alright. Editing Prakash Kurup could have been better. Director Ayan Mukherjee’s ignored the writing part and completely focused on the VFX part.
- Ranbir and Alia
- VFX in parts
Brahmastra is a visually grand film that has fine performance from the lead pair. But on the flipside, lack of engaging presentation, poor writing, and screenplay disappoints the audience. First half of the film focuses mainly on the love story and makes it a bearable watch. But the 2nd half loses steam completely and a heavy/prolonged climax makes it even more worse.
