Netizens Review Alia Bhatt Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra – NewzBeta

The most awaited movie of 2022 aka Brahmastra is here. The big banner Bollywood movie, which took 7 years to materialize into reality, releases pan India today. From hyped-up promotions to strange controversies, it has been quite a ride for the makers of the movie. First, the team had to deal with incessant delays for years and when it was finally completed, the boycott campaigns began to erupt out of nowhere. But, now that team Brahmastra has waded through all that, it’s time for the movie’s verdict to be out.

According to the makers, the movie is a part of a franchise and this is the first installment, featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead. This movie explores the Astraverse and the most important Astra, which is the Agni Astra. Apart from names like Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy, Shah Rukh Khan too has done a cameo in the movie.  

The packed house in most theatres, followed by interesting reactions on Twitter indicates that all the publicity, which the movie amassed before its release, has worked in its favor.

And, Here’s What Fans Have To Say

According to recent reports, the movie fared well in terms of the money made through advance bookings. Brahmastra‘s early bookings surpassed some of the biggest Bollywood earners in 2022, such as Bhul Bhulaiyaa 2 and 83 which were released this year. Regional versions of the movie were released concurrently in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada.  

Brahmastra was produced on a massive budget of Rs 430 crores and boasts of being the most expensive film in Bollywood. The visual effects that have been used in the movie were being promoted as one of the best that the audience has seen yet.  

Just like Marvel’s multiverse talks about various universes, Ayan Mukherji’s film explores the subject of Astraverse, which explores the different astras of nature. In a video released by Mukherji on YouTube, a month ago, the filmmaker explained the concept in detail.

Reactions aside, the movie faced untoward threats, as the Members of the Bajrang Dal in Ujjain began protesting with black flags and denied entry to Kapoor, Alia, and Mukerji when they’d gone to seek blessings at the famous Mahakaleshwar temple. Recent releases like Liger and Laal Singh Chaddha met with a similar fate, in terms of being subjected to Boycott threats prior to their releases.
