Brahmastra story / Brahmastra plot
Brahmastra is supposed to be the first big-budget superhero / fantasy drama from the Hindi film industry. Due to these reasons, everyone is silent about the story and plot of Brahmastra. However, here is all the information we currently have.
First things first, Brahmastra is originally meant to be a trilogy, of which the first part will release in 2020. It will be a modern-day story set in today's India.
Brahmastra "is actually a supernatural romantic fairy tale at heart. Ayan (Mukherji) will never make a character that doesn’t have truth to it, or which is unbelievable. It’s too early to talk about the film, but it is something I am terribly excited about,” Ranbir Kapoor had said about Brahmastra previously.
Brahmastra is one of the biggest projects for Dharma Productions, managed by Karan Johar and mother Hiroo Yash Johar. Ranbir Kapoor, Ayan Mukerji, Fox Star Studios, Apoorva Mehta, and Namit Malhotra are also listed as producers of the film.
Other than that, Brahmastra music is by Simon Franglen, cinematography by Sudeep Chatterjee, Patrick Duroux, and others, and VFX by DNEG.
