Brahmastra – one of the most awaited movies of this year – has hit the cinema halls. And, many movie critics and fans have shared their reviews of this Ranbir-Alia starrer, which is made on a massive budget of INR 410 Crores.
Based on the reviews, it seems the movie failed to deliver on the expectations of many. From calling it a ‘disappointment’ to ‘waste of money’, here’s how Brahmastra couldn’t meet up to the hype.
Doesn’t meet the sky-high expectations… Clichéd plot and predictable formula remodelled with new packaging… #AliaBhatt very bad, lacklustre screenwriting is a roadblock… #BrahmastraReview pic.twitter.com/R7nZjlFKeH— Taran Adarsh (parody) (@Rekha597883401) September 9, 2022
Ayan seriously worked on the VFX part but sadly he forgot that what works in a movie is screenplay, direction, and performance. VFX is merely a tool to convey a thought or an imagination that you cannot do via performance. The movie lacks in that horizon!— Viraj Mahajan (@jarivism) September 9, 2022

#Brahmastra Misses The Target. You had all the Astras (money, starcast, vfx…) to make this a great cinematic experience except for Scriptastra.#BrahmastraReview pic.twitter.com/GKM4ACu8Kh— Atul Mohan (@atulmohanhere) September 9, 2022

My friend who watched #Brahmastra ignoring all my warnings said, “It is an assualt on all senses. BGM is too loud & everything is so bloody red in d movie that your eyes start hurting after a point. It is a pointless film that has nothing to do with Hinduism.” #BrahmastraReview— Anshul Singh (@anshulksingh) September 8, 2022

#BrahmastraMovieReview ‘Despite all those non-stop computer graphics, the opulence of the sets, the starry array, #Brahmastra‘s commitment to its subject, we never really buy into it completely,’ writes @shubhragupta https://t.co/dk9zj3ib3m— Indian Express Entertainment 😷 (@ieEntertainment) September 9, 2022
Some pointed out how the movie has good visual effects but lacks story
#Brahmastra’s visual effects make it worth a watch on a big screen. Just don’t expect much of a story. @dpanjana’s review is here. #RanbirKapoor #AliaBhatt #BrahmastraMovie#BrahmastraReview https://t.co/yBlSpeoY4R— Film Companion (@FilmCompanion) September 9, 2022

Directed by Ayan Mukherjee, the movie stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy in the lead roles. Will the makers be able to recover the massive budget of INR 410 Crores, only time will tell.
