'Brahmastra' motion poster out; Part-I to release in September 2022
After months of waiting, we finally have something concrete about Ranbir Kapoor's upcoming venture Brahmastra to get excited about. Dharma Productions dropped the motion poster for the high-budget project Wednesday. Alongside, makers confirmed the first part of the trilogy will be hitting the big screens on September 9, 2022, as previously speculated. Alongside Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, and Nagarjuna complete its glittery cast.
- Originally set to release in August 2019, the massive production has seen various setbacks in the years that followed.
- Given the sets for the sci-fi venture were mounted on a huge scale, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the production.
- Apart from Kapoor, Bhatt, Bachchan, and Nagarjuna, the film will see Mouni Roy in a pivotal role and Shah Rukh Khan in a cameo.
Brahmastra Part-I: Shiva's motion poster begins with various high-definition shots of the galaxy as we're told the most powerful weapon (Brahmastra) is waking up. And the one to master it is Kapoor's Shiva. Splendid VFX work and dramatic music form the crux for the poster. It was launched at a live event with director Ayan Mukerji, the actors, and the audience in attendance.

Earlier, sharing some behind-the-scenes images from the film's production, movie analyst Taran Adarsh had said Brahmastra has the potential to be a "gamechanger" if Mukerji gets the story right. And, after watching the motion poster, we do agree. The genre of science fiction has been barely explored in Indian cinema and an attempt at this huge scale is surely promising.
From what we know, the plot will follow Shiva (Kapoor) and his connection to a divine weapon called the Brahmastra. He also has mysterious powers based on fire and we'll see his journey of becoming the "divine hero of the universe." There's also a secret society, Brahmansh, involved in the picture. Set in modern India, the tale is based on Indian mythology, reported Variety.
While Bhatt plays Shiva's lover Isha, Bachchan's role is that of his mentor. Brahmastra is an "exact combination of East and West" yet has a "very new color," as per Mukerji. It will release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada languages.
