Brahmastra, A fantasy epic starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Amitabh Bachchan, has released a new trailer, courtesy of director Ayan Mukerji.
Brahmastra, Ayan Mukerji’s upcoming film, received an introduction to its mythology on the auspicious occasion of Guru Purnima on Wednesday. Fans of the fantasy epic will be introduced to a new hero based on Indian mythology.
Vanarastra, Nandiastra, Prabhastra, Jalastra, Pawanastra, and Brahmastra are among the concept arts featured in the video’s opening sequence.
Ayan says in the video that Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva is the first movie of this Astraverse. It’s a universe of astars. Ancient India’s Himalayas are depicted as a mystical place where sages are in deep contemplation. “The Light of the Universe” is bestowed upon the sages so that they may meditate in peace. ‘The most powerful and most pure energy there is.’
On the way, he explained how the ‘Braham-shakti,’ which is the source of all-natural energies such as ‘fire, wind, water, and earth,’ gave birth to astras.
Jal (water), Pawan (wind), and Agni (fire) Astra were his monikers for them.
The Vanarastra, for example, “can give the person controlling it the power of a Super Monkey,” was one of the astras he mentioned.
A thousand bulls can be found within the Nandiastra, he claimed.
Sages referred to this final astra as ‘The Brahmastra,’ a powerful weapon wielded by Gods and named after one of the most powerful astras ever made.
While Brahmastra is a work of fiction, I have attempted to celebrate Indian spirituality in my way through this movie,” Ayan wrote on Instagram. A lifelong student of our ancient Indian roots, he said: “On this very auspicious Guru Purnima day, I wanted to share more about the concept of Brahmastra – a movie that I found myself becoming a forever-student of… We sincerely hope you enjoy our imaginative efforts!
On September 9, Ayan can be seen introducing and dissecting the various astras that make up the upcoming film in a nearly four-minute-long video with impressive VFX shots. Get a gist of the film through this trailer.
The fact that no one else has attempted to use ancient Indian inspiration in the modern world puts us in a unique position, according to Ayan. Ayan turns his attention to the film’s central character, a “young man” by the name of Shiva. In the world of ‘astras,’ Ranbir Kapoor’s character is interesting, as he is an ‘astra’ himself.
Images of the astras (weapons) featured in the upcoming film Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva was shared on Instagram on Wednesday by Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar, and Ayan Mukerji. Among the stars are Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. Aside from Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy are also in the film.
