Brahmastra: Part One- Shiva, directed by Ayan Mukerji, starring Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor in pivotal roles, is doing wonders at the box office. Despite attaining reviews that ranged from commends to criticism, the 480-crore film was able to gross 300 crores globally in around ten days. While some people lauded the movie for its VFX and the world that Ayan built, others disparaged it for the lack of depth given to Alia’s character Isha and her dialogues in the film.
However, people belonging to higher age groups are unable to comprehend the story. Speaking of which, in an interview with Pinkvilla, Ayan Mukerji acknowledged the same and said that it is because the “grammar and syntax” of the film are new.
