Shiva is a DJ in Mumbai, who longs for love. He always enjoys his time with kids. He feels different when some visuals load before him when he closes his eyes, sometimes. The fire didn’t affect him, and soon, he found some special powers in him. After his findings about him, his life changes. What happens to him? Was he able to find the love of his life? The rest of the film deals with his search for truth and love.

Star Performance

Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna are perfect in their roles. Ranbir and Alia’s chemistry is good. The rest of the stars have done what is needed.


Ayan Mukerji tried his best to make the film visually appealing. Though the main characters are designed well, the supporting roles should’ve been given importance. However, the stars have performed well. Ayan has taken a lot of references from Indian mythology and developed his characters. Amitabh’s scenes are shot well like Ranbir’s. The VFX works are fantastic. The music and editing are good too. Though the film is visually appealing, it lacks some depth in the emotional portions. If the makers had cared about those portions well, Bhramastra would have been better than now.

What’s There?

  • Performances of the stars are good
  • The film is technically good

What’s Not There?

  • A few characters could’ve been developed better
  • Emotional content lacks the depth


Though the film has a few flaws, it has some good performances and impressive making. Brahmastra is definitely watchable once!
