New Delhi: Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor starrer Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva has finally released in theatres and first reviews of the film are in. Directed by Ayan Mukerji, Brahmastra also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni and Mouni Roy in pivotal roles.
#Disaster Trends on Twitter after Brahmastra release
Bankrolled on a budget of Rs 400 crore, Brahmastra is by far Bollywood’s costliest project. The film was announced in 2014 and went on floors in 2016. The trailer of the film was released a month ago, building expectations among fans. Now, the reviews of the film are finally here. While several fans compared called the heavy-duty VFX in the film to ‘MCU’ and ‘DC’, others called it a boring fest with all glitters but no gist. Despite recording a decent advance booking, the film has been affected by #BoycottBollywood trend. After Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandha, the film is now at the mercy of trolls who took to Twitter to share negative review of the film. Aside from trolls, there is also a section of netizens who are not really impressed by Ayan Mukerji’s Astraverse.

#Brahmastra – Rating ⭐️½
This film is a personification of DISASTER. Horrible VFX & direction, not even a single scene evokes goosebumps rather it is bound to give you headache throughout the run time. A blot on filmography.#BoycottBrahamstra#BrahmashtraReview pic.twitter.com/8cGtSyjgFq

Brahmastra is the first part in the three-part trilogy. The first film in the Astra universe, which is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, centres on the fire-wielding character Shiva played by Ranbir Kapoor. While Nagarjuna and Amitabh Bachchan are the Brahmastra’s guardians. Mouni Roy is a symbol of the evil forces that want to possess the Brahmastra. Tomorrow is when it will be released in theatres (September 9).
