Banglahunt the desk: Brahmastra released on Friday, September 9. The submission is of Starcast film with cameos by Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, Mouni Roy along with Shah Rukh Khan. But the audience did not like Brahmastra. The film has received mixed response so far. However, the makers have announced the second film of Brahmastra trilogy on the day of its release.
‘Brahmastra Part One: Shiva’ is the first film of the Brahmastra trilogy. Director Ayan Mukherjee and producer Karan Johar said that two more volumes will be released after that. Similarly, at the end of the first film, the second part was announced, which is called ‘Brahmastra Part Two: Dev’.
A vague glimpse of Dev’s character is available in the first part itself. Dev will play the lead role in the second film. But here’s a big twist. Like the first film, Ranbir Kapoor will not be seen in the second part. Instead, another actor will be seen. While his identity is yet to be revealed, it is heard that either Ranveer Singh or Hrithik Roshan will likely be seen as Dev.
Although there is no clear idea about the Dev character, the character has been shown to have a ‘super power’. Dev wants to become the greatest power in the world by performing Brahmastra. He is also seen in the trailer and in the film.
Incidentally, Brahmastra Part One: Shiva has been made on a budget of around Rs 400-500 crores. Apart from Hindi, Brahmastra Part One has been released in English, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam languages. Given the scale at which the film was made, it is clear that the second part will be made on a similar budget.
Although the first film received a mixed response from the audience. The film’s VFX are excellent, everyone admits. There is no doubt about Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna’s performance. There are plenty of surprises in the film as well. But there is no life!
Many netizens, even renowned trade analyst Taran Adarsh are disappointed with Brahmastra. Giving the film a rating of just 2 out of 5, his speech, Brahmastra was a major disappointment. Could have turned the game around, but failed. Ayan Mukherjee worked for 5 years on a film story that had no life.
