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.

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.
