The film chronicles Shiva’s journey across the Astraverse
The plot of Brahmastra revolves around Shiva, a DJ who appears to be some kind of fire wielder, and sure, he’s fireproof. The narrative functions as a typical tale following the blossoming romance between him and Isha. However, Shiva’s ability to awaken Brahmastra, the universe’s most potent weapon, dubbed “sare astro ka devta,” launches his journey on an exceptional route that will sum up the supernatural fantasy genre. On the other hand, some sinister powers will embark on a mission to harness the power of Brahmastra, which will, of course, be the same for malicious purposes.
The cast of Brahmastra incorporates a range of well-known Indian actors. Ranbir Kapoor plays the lead as Shiva, also called “Agni Astra”. As Isha, Alia Bhatt adds to the blossoming romance, and who knows, she might even have some type of power. Amitabh Bachchan serves in the role of Guru Arvind, a mentor figure to Shiva who will help him reach his true potential. With his formidable character as Anish, Nagarjuna Akkineni fills the void. Finally, Mouni Roy joins as Junoon, the Queen of Darkness, to cover the chasm of looming enmity.
Brahmastra can be termed as the vision of Ayan Mukerji, who adds to the director’s chair. The story is, of course, pitched by him under the production banner of Dharma Productions. Made on a budget of ₹ 300 crores, the film took almost eight years to wrap up and is finally arriving on the big screen on September 9, 2022.
