After years of waiting, Ayan Mukerji is ready to showcase his dream project brahmastra. The Alia Bhatt-Ranbir Kapoor starrer is set to release tomorrow. And after the first review of the film, the fans were waiting.
The international publication Variety gave Brahmastra a fairly positive review, calling it a “superhero spectacular”. Film critic Courtney Howard also paid a compliment Ranbir and Alia‘s performance, noting their “charm and style”.
“Leaders Kapoor and Bhatt have an overabundance of charm and style that leaps off the screen and captures your heart. Kapoor’s charisma elevates the material’s sporadically slapstick dialogue. Bhatt is luminous, playing both spitfire and sweetheart with gusto and grace. They are cutest when they are vulnerable,” read part of the review.
The review also highlighted the presence of megastars Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna, but refrained from naming Shah Rukh Khan. A film critic wrote, “Casting the titans of Indian cinema as the guardians of Brahmastra’s works (talents like Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni and a gigantic Bollywood superstar to be discovered) is a smart move as it gives the action added seriousness while also gifting the audience with happy smiles.” “
Fans were in for a treat as the Brahmastra team held a special preview today. A section of the audience who witnessed the revival of the fantasy drama also took to social media to shower the Alia Bhatt-Ranbir Kapoor film with high compliments.
