Ranbir Kapoor Anchors The Action In Ambitious And Entertaining Fantasy

Brahmastra might cross the Rs 100 crore mark by the end of its first weekend

Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt as the lead pair are adorable on screen and tried to carry the entire on their shoulders with their performance. While Ranbir Kapoor gave his best, Alia also managed to impress with her acting.

On the whole, Brahmastra is a passable action drama that has an interesting backdrop.

It's okay to go all out and make a visually-stunning film with zero emphasis on emotions. But 'Brahmastra' stresses that 'love' is the biggest weapon and yet has a love story that's hard to root for. Mukerji believes in the age-old love-at-first-sight and the rich-falling-for-the-poor tropes.

The graphics and VFX work done for this mega-budget film is surprisingly bad and fails to create an impression.

The songs in the film are audible on screen but the background score is totally a disappointment. Editing work by Prakash Kurup is just okay.

Brahmastra Part One: Shiva is a spectacular production that benefits immensely from the VFX done by DNEG. The crucial action scenes, even as they strain credibility, throb with life and deliver their share of excitement.
