Movie Review: Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva

Director Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva was announced eight years ago. It is one of the costliest Indian films made till date with a whopping budget of Rs 410 crore. Mukerji has tried to make a superhero film with Hindu mythology. This film relies mainly on two aspects - its visual effects and the love story of its lead pair, Shiva and Isha, played by Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer this film constantly tries to impress us with the visual effects, manifold computer graphics, eye-catching visuals, the lavishness of the sets and the starry array, but the lacking of commitment to its subject is noticeable. 

About the story, A young, orphaned DJ, Shiva (Ranbir Kapoor), leads a happy life, full of light, around a bunch of orphaned kids. His special connection with fire - it doesn’t inflame him - and a host of visuals that appear before him periodically when he shuts his eyes, suck him into a world of superpowers. While there’s a mythological background to this, it also connects Shiva to the story of his parents, which changes the course of his life. His search for love and light puts him on the path to abolish evil forces, and discover his true potential.

Megastars Nagarjuna and Amitabh Bachchan play their key parts with great conviction. Nagarjuna is quite effective in limited screen time. Big B performs action scenes with ease. Ranbir’s hard efforts are visible. He gives his best for Shiva’s character. Alia Bhatt and Mouni Roy are OK as per tale. There’s not much attention paid to the secondary characters.

The movie is based on Indian mythology and folk tales. The efforts invested in creating the universe in this movie, full with miniscule detailing, are praiseworthy. The film excels in divisions like the VFX and visual effects. The movie’s colour palette has been created caringly, and the illustration of the astras created out of the powers of nature and mythological characters is stunning. The action direction, particularly in the chase sequence before interval, earns whistles and claps. Songs are tuneful and melodious.

Overall, film Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva is OK to watch once for its top-notch VFX and visual treats.
