IndiaToday.in just got an exclusive preview of Brahmastra Part One: Shiva trailer which is set to release on June 15th. Here’s what we thought:
The Brahmastra Part One: Shiva trailer will be released on June 15.
- The Brahmastra Part One: Shiva trailer is set to release on Wednesday, June 15.
- Brahmastra stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, Nagarjuna among others.
- Brahmastra is set to hit theaters on September 9, 2022.
It’s the seven-year-old itch. Ayan Mukerji’s magnum opus Brahmastra took seven long years to make and IndiaToday.in got a glimpse of what the trailer (out June 15) looks like. Does it live up to the hype? Does it look like the Marvel superhero movies? Does Shah Rukh Khan make an appearance in the trailer? We have all the answers, and more…
THE BRAHMASTRA TRAILER IS VISUALLY STUNNING!
Visually, the trailer is groundbreaking, especially if you put on your 3D glasses and watch it. Fantasy fiction, as a genre, needs strong VFX and CGI to support the filmmaker’s vision. In this case, Ayan has the right visual aesthetic. From the first frame to the preview of the big fight scene between the good guys and the bad guys, the film’s special effects are stellar.

According to the trailer, Brahmastra appears as an intense love story, set against a backdrop of fantasy fiction universe. Ayan is a master storyteller when it comes to telling a love story and, with Brahmastra, he takes two of the most popular romantic actors – Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt – and weaves a love story that is essential to the plot. Oh yeah, and there’s also an intense romantic kiss between Isha and Shiva in one of the scenes.
BRAHMASTRA IS NOT A SUPERHERO FILM
You heard it right. Ranbir’s Shiva doesn’t have a cape or costume, nor does he wear a mask or hand-stuck gadgets. Shiva is a mythological hero whose divinity comes from our Indian gods. Ayan establishes this at the very beginning of the trailer, in order to nip the superhero comparison in the bud.

The voiceover and the presence of Amitabh Bachchan take the trailer to another level. He seems to be Shiva’s mentor and part of the good guys team. Mouni Roy looks menacing and clearly she seems to have made the most of her success in Naagin. In Brahmastra, she looks better and her character looks darker and more sinister.
The trailer keeps you on the edge of your seats and really delivers what it set out to achieve – a new genre that’s truly desi at heart, with India’s first native mythological hero at the center.
