Meanwhile, the first review of Brahmastra was posted on Twitter by Umair Sandhu, who identifies as a film and fashion critic in the UK, the United Arab Emirates, and India. One of the costliest Bollywood films of all time, Brahmastra also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy in pivotal roles. Sandhu, in his review of the film, said that the film has excellent visual effects, and a few sequences are executed flawlessly.
Cinematography is eye-catching, he added but quipped that the lighting is too dark at places. While Sandhu hailed production design, he called story & screenplay strictly average, calling it boring during interval portions. Music is first rate, he said while giving it an average rating of 2.5/5.
