Guwahati: The much-anticipated trailer for Ayan Mukerji’s magnum opus Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva released on Wednesday morning. The trailer sets the tone for the film, which many have called India’s answer to fantasy epics like Lord of the Rings. The three-minute trailer packs a lot of visually-stunning moments, heavy impressive VFX shots, and an indication of the film’s grand scale.
The near-three-minute trailer opens with Amitabh Bachchan’s voice over telling us how the five elements have had their powers stored in ‘astras’ (weapons) since the ancient times and that this is the story of the God of all Astras- the Brahmastra. We then meet Ranbir Kapoor’s Shiva, a boy-next-door, who has no clue he is connected to the Brahmastra in some way. He meets Isha and we see romance brewing between the two before we and Isha learn Shiva’s secret–fire does not burn him.
Shiva realises that ancient forces are at play in the world with two sides facing off in the battle to get their hands on the Brahmastra. We see glimpses of the good guys–Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna–and also Mouni Roy as the film’s villain. Amitabh Bachchan’s character then tells Shiva how he is connected to this world of astras and then Shiva assumes his role as the saviour he was meant to be.
After watching the trailer of Brahmastra, fans cannot stop praising the team. One of the fan tweeted, “What an amazing trailer!! Those Visuals though! Never before on this scale! on Indian Screen.” Another fan tweeted, “No you are not dreaming it’s from Indian cinema.” A third fan tweeted, “The best thing about the trailer is its VFX which is looking excellent. They didnt even reveal much, wait for the movie to witness more spectacles . On the whole, #BrahmastraTrailer will generate tremendous hype amoung audience and shall take BLOCKBUSTER.”
