An Early Review of Brahmāstra

Is Brahmāstra supposed to be based on mythology? Because I saw the movie’s two-minute trailer, which does not seem mythological at all. It is a demented science fiction movie which makes less sense than the mountain-sized gorilla mating with Naomi Watts in the movie King Kong. 

Ranbir Kapoor, who likes to brag about being a “big beef guy” in TV interviews, is the one who gets to wield the Brahmāstra. Beef and Brahmāstra—in the convoluted world of Bollywood, there is no contradiction between the two. Ranbir can fill his belly with big beef and then wield the Brahmāstra. The problem is that he has the personality of a mousy teenybopper; he is not convincing at all as the carrier of the mighty Brahmāstra. He is paired with Alia Bhatt, who looks more masculine than him. But it is hard to tell from Alia’s performance if she is a real woman or an animation. The evergreen cactus of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan, is playing the role of a cult leader. He speaks in a droning and soporific voice that will put a whole colony of lizards to sleep. Will Amitabh ever retire? This is the uppermost question in my mind. 

Whoever directed this movie should be fired from Bollywood. He must never be allowed to direct a movie again. #Brahmāstra
