Superheroes have long caught the fantasy of movie goers, age no bar. Indeed, ask anyone, and they will tell you how many times they have flocked to cinema halls to watch the first Spiderman trilogy, the Christopher Nolan directed Batman trilogy and many other superhero flicks. Now, India has also had its very own set of ingenious superheroes, such as Shaktiman, and others, but none of them have ever really made it to the big screen. Movies on heroes have been aplenty, but the visual effects of these movies often left much to be desired. It was often said Bollywood lags behind Hollywood when it comes to VFX. But not anymore.
With Brahmastra, director Ayan Mukerji has tried to do something that has never been done before in the Indian movie industry. He has created a whole new cinematic universe, known as the Astra verse. And now, the Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starring Brahmastra is only the first set of movie, in this world. Brahmastra is the first part of a trilogy of movies. If you still haven’t seen the film, then we suggest you try to see it right away!
What is Brahmastra all about?
In the Astra verse, you come across a variety of concepts and tales that often have their roots in Indian culture. However, the director has put a very interesting spin on them, with a modern world storyline. On top of that, there is enough action, drama, a budding love story to bring forth a movie that has ticked all the right boxes.
While the main themes of the movies are the triumph of good over evil, you will also get to see cutting edge visual effects that would definitely mesmerise you.
The story starts off with a love story. Shiva, played by Ranbir Kapoor, is a modern-day DJ who soon falls in love with Isha, played by Alia Bhatt. Pretty soon their romance blossoms forward. However, Shiva has always had a strange relationship with fire, something that he has never been able to figure out. He sets off on an epic adventure, thereafter. The whole story finally ends when Shiva ultimately realises what his final destination would be, on this journey.
