'Brahmastra', the September 9th release, is one pan-India flick that could be Bollywood's way of redefining the fantasy-adventure genre. Its trailer was released today in multiple languages, including Telugu.
Megastar Chiranjeevi introduces Shiva (Ranbir Kapoor) as someone who doesn't know that he is a weapon. Brahmastra is the leader of powerful weapons and Shiva seems to have a say in how it is wielded against evil. Amitabh Bachchan plays a guru sort of role, with Mouni Roy playing the Mysterious Queen of Darkness.
Alia Bhatt's Isha looks emotionally disturbed by the goings-on in her boyfriend Shiva's life. The Dasara celebrations turn out to be a turning point in their relationship when Shiva reveals that fire can't singe him. "I have a special relationship with fire," he says.
The Astraverse of Indian cinema has just begun its journey. 'Brahmastra' will have two more parts. SS Rajamouli is presenting the film in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada.
