INDIA: Finally, the wait is over. After multiple delays, the Brahmastra trailer arrives to set the screens on fire. The oversaturated colour-filled VFX that appears to serve as a visual feast, Amitabh Bachchan’s deep voice-over, BGM that indeed produces chills, and significant references to ancient Indian culture encompasses the recipe of Ayan Mukerji’s tented magnum opus.

The film adds to the beginning of a new cinematic universe known as 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 by 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 film is the first instalment in a trilogy that chronicles Shiva’s journey across the Astraverse, a universe brimming with enigmatic weaponry. It will introduce Shiva as the forthcoming celestial superhero after uncovering every part of Brahmastra’s lore and legend.

The cast of Brahmastra incorporates a range of well-known Indian actors. Ranbir Kapoor plays the lead as Shiva, who is also termed “Agni Astra”. As Isha, Alia Bhatt adds to the blossoming romance, and who knows, 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.

The aesthetically enticing elements contribute to the trailer’s highlight

The trailer commences with Amitabh Bachchan’s sombre voice-over, which emphasizes the gravity of the legend, where we have explicit references to Water, Wind, and Fire, which adds to the narrative’s elemental dimensions.

The enigmatic character walking is hinted at by the sea waves, yet the identity of the character is kept hidden, possibly hinting at the Deepika Padukone cameo appearance speculations. More intriguingly, we encounter Nagarjun’s persona Anish shattering the truck with his charged Bull aura, evoking his Nandi avatar. It appears that his role has a more badass demeanour than any other character in the film, or perhaps it’s just Nagarjuna’s swag that contributes to the vibes.

The energetic flying impression of Bhagwan Hanuman in the sky looks magnificent, and it’s one of the trailer’s most beautiful visual moments. Later in the clip, we see Ranbir Kapoor as Shiva, with his identity hinted at as DJ; this may be reverting to certain parts, but it can only be fully realized after the film is released.

The trailer introduces each individual one by one, with clear glimpses of Guru Arvind leading to the establishment of a mysterious group, present since ancient times, which includes their purpose of conserving power for the greater good. On the other hand, Junoon appears to be assembling her army of darkness, which is obviously for the Brahmastra’s pursuit.

In the trailer, Ayan portrayed Mouni as a villain, yet this may be interpreted as deceptive. The primary antagonist will be someone else; nevertheless, rumours suggest that Sharukh Khan would be Ranbir’s arch-rival. If this theory proves to be correct, it will be a thrilling conclusion.

Many viewers can agree that the VFX’s over-saturation of colours seems a little cartoonish, which is perfectly acceptable. However, on the other hand, some may find the vibrant colour to be visually pleasing. Looking at things from different perspectives can lead to new intricacies in Indian filmmaking.
