Very poor visual effects for a big budget movie

This morning saw the release of the highly anticipated Brahmastra trailer. ranbir kapoor and alia bhatt star in this socio-fantasy drama directed by Ayan Mukherjee. According to the trailer, Ranbir plays dj shiva in what appears to be a fantasy epic. He doesn’t know he has superhuman skills, but once he does, he’ll have to protect the world from Mouni Roy’s evil empire.

Other important roles in the film were played by veteran actors amitabh bachchan and nagarjuna Akkineni. Even if the efforts of the makers are visible in the teaser, we must admit that the visual effects are quite below average. These images were particularly important to Telugu viewers in Anji and Ammoru. Even the Telugu dub was pretty awful.

It’s disappointing to see renowned production companies such as Dharma Productions and Star Studios produce such poor visual effects in the era of rrr and Baahubali. Brahmastra’s main selling point will no longer be its visual effects, so Ayan Mukherjee must excel at storytelling. On September 9, this movie is set to have a worldwide release and it would be the first chapter and subsequent chapters to be released in the coming years.
