Check out these 5 useful tips for a blissful career!
This movie was fun to analyse, dissect and interpret as it left so many questions unanswered. It was a brilliant move to leave it at a point where it does.
I watched the latest Bollywood release, Brahmastra. Throughout the movie, we were intrigued by the back story and what’s going to happen next. It’s a very interesting plot bringing in our rich ancient mythology set against the back drop of the 21st century. It is a current love story tied to ancient forces.
A movie needs to be evaluated on it’s story and plot, performances and casting, editing an direction, and not by the banner of the makers or language it’s made in, or even perhaps it being a multi-starer with star kids.
Before we look at what we can expect in the sequel, here’s my review of each of these aspects.
So if you take it as a love story it was decent. Yes, some scenes were over-the-top, but I guess mythology gives you the liberty to make it ‘unreal’. There were some missing links and explanations that were not tied in well at the end, but perhaps that was to leave room for the next part of the trilogy.
I loved the chemistry between the couple, humour thrown in at times, and the beautiful messages interwoven.
Some characters could’ve been better sketched and developed to explain how they are connected to the main plot.
Both the main leads have powerful roles and substantial screen space, perhaps at the cost of the supporting cast that is brilliant but under-utilized. Like the five new recruits being trained by the guru could’ve been given more time to showcase their powers.
Dialogue writing and delivery could’ve been much better. In their attempt to lighten up a heavy subject, they have forced some lines that seem a misfit. If their attempt was to keep it real and current, I felt even in our normal conversations we wouldn’t talk like that!
I personally enjoyed the special effects, and watching it in 3D! I may question the choice of a director for this movie. Someone who has experience in this or related genre may have done it better. The current director does love stories, which is evident here as well. But perhaps not the rest. Again, I’m not an expert, just an audience member stating my opinion.
Overall, it’s a good attempt to weave romance and fantasy together. The movie is entertaining and has all the elements it takes to make a blockbuster. Yes, there are flaws, and I feel it could’ve been better given it’s a new genre and an unexplored subject, but it’s definitely worth a watch in my opinion.
This movie was fun to analyse, dissect and interpret as it left so many questions unanswered. It was a brilliant move to leave it at a point where some characters were not revealed and explanations not given.
That naturally called for a more in-depth analysis where I came up with these theories, explanations, and conjectures on what to expect next –
I feel we have high hopes from part 2, but since it’s a trilogy only by the end of all 3 parts will all these theories get explained.
Tell me in comments what you thought of the movie.

Neena Gupta’s take on love between a man and woman opens a can of worms. She’s speaking her truth, which is a reality for so many people, but is it universal?
Neena Gupta made a statement in her interview with Humans of Bombay that she doesn’t believe love exists between a man and a woman. She said it starts off with lust, which then changes into affection, and becomes a habit. The only love she’s ever known and felt is for her daughter, Masaba.
Neena is married to Vivek Mehra, a chartered accountant who she first met on a flight. Vivek Mehra has two children, and it’s his second marriage. It’s Neena’s second marriage too. She was earlier married at an early age of 20. She has one child, Masaba, from her previous relationship with the now retired West Indian cricketer, Vivian Richards.
Her statement about love evoked some vehement reactions ranging from she’s not met the right man to “blood runs thicker than water”.
