Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva review by The Hindu
Reviewed by Anuj Kumar, Brahmastra’s writing turned out to be its biggest drawback with all the hype over Indian mythology just being a cosmetic cover.
“The biggest drawback of the film is its writing. All the hype over Indian mythology is just a cosmetic cover; the makers come across as fanboys of the Marvel universe. And, in a double whammy, the link with heritage perhaps restricts them from employing clever twists and self-referential humour,” reviewed The Hindu.

For Monika Rawal Kukreja, the Alia Bhatt-Ranbir Kapoor starrer is a like watching a video game and a heady blend of Hindu mythology and sci-fi.
“Watch Brahmastra because it’s not every day that Bollywood churns out a film on this grand scale, with top-class VFX and creates a mystical universe that we only see in the West or closer home in the south film industry. And given that it’s a planned trilogy, you’d be already left craving for a part two sooner,” reviewed Hindustan Times.
Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva review by The Indian Express
In her review, Shubhra Gupta wrote that despite of the non-stop VFX and Alia Bhatt-Ranbir Kapoor’s razzle-dazzle, the film failed to entertain.
“Films so stuffed with special effects need to maintain a balance between parts which are meant to blow us away with their wares, and the parts which allow it to slow down and breathe. The VFX is non-stop (at one point, a troll-like army appears, and disappears), the blaring music keeps wanting to bludgeon us into submission, and we are left yearning for magic,” reviewed The Indian Express.
Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva review by NDTV
Saibal Chatterjee rated 3 out of 5 stars to Ayan Mukerji’s film. In his review, he said the film is a high-octane blend of generic Hollywood conventions and predictable Bollywood tics.
“Brahmastra takes the devices of the superhero flick as we know them and stirs them up in a way that isn’t entirely potboiler-style derivative, which is quite a feat given that it is primarily intent on rustling up a maximalist universe where everything is designed to dazzle the audience into willing submission,” reviewed NDTV.
Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva review by The Free Press Journal
Rohit Bhatnagar gave 2.stars our of 5 to the long-awaited film.
“With the runtime of 166 minutes, Ayan has completely wasted his screenplay by overdoing the romance between real-life couple Ranbir-Alia. The film looks like one pretext book that led to their marriage,” reviewed The Free Press Journal.

Drishyam meme surfaces on social media, netizens recall Salgaonkar family’s incident on Gandhi Jayanti
Vijay Salgaonkar, played by Ajay Devgn, and his family as they travel on an unexpected adventure in Drishyam. On October 3rd, they leave Panaji after attending a Satsang, enjoying Pav Bhaji, and going back home. This story gave rise to a popular meme that reappears on October 2nd like clockwork.
Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary is celebrated today on October 2nd, a beloved national holiday in India that has been embedded in our memory since we were young. But in 2015, an intriguing event occurred that gave this anniversary a new level of significance.
Whether you’re a fan of Bollywood or not, you’re probably familiar with the memorable events that took place in the movie Drishyam on this day.
As we follow the story of Vijay Salgaonkar, played by Ajay Devgn, and his family as they travel on an unexpected adventure in Drishyam. On October 3rd, they leave Panaji after attending a Satsang, enjoying Pav Bhaji, and going back home. This story gave rise to a popular meme that reappears on October 2nd like clockwork.
Even after 8 years, Drishyam fans are still in a state of shock about October 2, which played a significant role in the story. Again, this dialogue has been driving X users crazy.
When Vijay Salgaonkar reminds you, it’s not just any day—it’s October 2nd, a user noted. Another user said, Yaad hai na 2nd October ko kya hua tha, which translates, remeber what was on October 2nd.
The other said, I’m going to eat Paav Bhaji today, that’s the least I can do to celebrate a great movie like Drishyam.
Meanwhlie, here is a quick summary of the movie for those who haven’t seen it. Sam, the son of IG Meera Deshmukh (Tabu), secretly tapes Anju, Vijay’s daughter, taking a shower during a school nature camp and attempts to extort Anju using the video. Anju accidentally murders Sam while attempting to remove the evidence that could be used against her.
This paves the way for Vijay, a movie buff and cable TV provider, to come up with a plan to teach every member of the family to lie to the authorities by saying they were in Panaji on the day Sam went missing (2nd October).
Drishyam, which was directed by Nishikant Kamat, also stars actress Tabu, Rajat Kapoor, and Shriya Saran.
