Brahmastra Part 1 (2022) Review: Story, Performances & Analysis

The narrative started with the Indian mythological background of ‘astraverse’ and Brahmastra is the most powerful among all astras. 30 years back it was divided into three parts to keep it safe and the people responsible for its safety are called Brahmansh.

Brahmastra Part 1 is the story of Shiva (Ranbir Kapoor), a DJ by profession with a special power within him that takes him to a different world whenever he closes his eyes. He watches visuals periodically after closing his eyes which leaves him clueless every time.

Shiva saw Isha (Alia Bhatt) in a temple while worshipping Goddess Durga on the occasion of Dusshera Mahotsav and fell for her at first sight. He found her luckily for the second time in a pub where he was present as a DJ and that is when he decided to chase her to have a conversation.

Their journey started together and Isha came to know many things about Shiva. He is an orphan and he looks after a few orphaned kids who bring a smile to his face.

Scientist Mohan Barghav(Shah Rukh Khan), artist Anish Shetty(Nagarjuna Akkineni), and Amitabh Guru of Brahmansh(Amitabh Bachchan)are being chased by Junoon (Mouni Roy) and her gang to get the other parts of Brahmastra. Will Junoon be able to get it? Can Shiva stop Junoon from succeeding in her mission?

If we have to mention the best part about Brahmastra Part 1 then it is undoubtedly the visual effects. We have not seen these kinds of visuals in Bollywood before and that is enough reason for people to eagerly wait for the Brahmastra Part 2.

Ranbir Kapoor delivered a far better performance here than what he did in Shamshera. Alia Bhatt has a good screen presence and she impresses again with a magnificent performance. Another positive part of this movie is the chemistry between Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.

Shah Rukh Khan as Mohan Barghav did a fantastic job in the beginning to give the gripping start of this movie, Amitabh Bachchan as Guruji looks convincing, and Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni’s characters deserved a bit more focus.

Brahmastra Part 1 is Ayan Mukerji’s 3rd directorial movie as well as his third collaboration with Ranbir Kapoor. He made his directorial debut with Wake Up Sid featuring Ranbir Kapoor & Konkana Sen Sharma, his second directorial movie was Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Kalki Koechlin, & Aditya Roy Kapur.

If we ignore a few flaws, there is nothing much to say here about his direction. With the release of Brahmastra Part 1, Director Ayan Mukerji has proved that Bollywood too can create movies with stunning visual effects.

Brahmastra Part 1 has left many questions unanswered which we may get in part 2. The weak writing in parts, and failure to give sufficient focus to build the characters of Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni, are a few areas that could have been improved.

Final Words

Brahmastra Part 1 has given the best cinematic experience of a Bollywood movie in a long time. The magnificent visuals and Ranbir Kapoor & Alia Bhatt’s on-screen chemistry are the best parts of this movie.
