Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor and wife Alia Bhatt’s ‘Brahmastra’ seems to have finally broken the #BoycottBollywood curse. The early estimates indicated that the Ayan Mukherji movie has collected somewhere between Rs 36.50 crore to Rs 38.50 crore on its opening day.

The Rs 415 crore budget movie may enter the Rs 100 crore club by the end of this week. However, a few critics have opened up on their dislike for movie. 

Taking to his Twitter handle, film critic Sumit Kadel wrote, “The movie is a personification of DISASTER. Horrible VFX & direction, not even a single scene evokes goosebumps rather it is bound to give you headache throughout the run time. A blot on filmography.”

Sharing his tweets, Manikarnika actress Kangana Ranaut also came down heavily on filmmaker Karan Johar, director Ayan Mukherji and the lead actors Ranbir and Alia.
She claimed that the movie has reportedly incurred over Rs 800 crore loss to PVR and Inox. 

Sharing Sumit Kadel’s tweet, Kangana wrote, “This is what happens when you try to sell a lie, @karanjohar in every show forces people to call @aliaabhatt and Ranbir best actors and @ayanmukerji a genius… slowly he started to believe this lie… what else explains the 600cr budget of this film to a director who never made a good enough film in his life… Fox studio in India had to sell itself to fund this film…. How many more studios will be closed because of these clowns?”

The actress further wrote, “Their groupism is coming to bite them now… Wedding to baby PR, controlled the  media, jailed KRK, bought reviews, bought tickets… they can do everything dishonest but can’t make a good honest film..”

Sharing another tweet, she again wrote, “Today we don’t have a single international studio left in the country we can pitch our films to, movie mafia takes over their system and sucks them dry, they cease to exist as soon as they open…how do we make movies when there are no studios left, only traditional financers and individual producers those too far and few…”

The Thalaivi actress wrote “Everyone who called @ayanmukerji a genius should be jailed immediately.. he took 12 years to make this film, he replaced 14 DOP’s he shot for more than 400 days for this film and changed 85 AD’s and burnt 600 crores to ashes… Also tried to exploit religious sentiments by changing the film name from Jalaluddin Rumi to Shiva last minute, because of Bahubali success… Such opportunists, such creativity deprived people, success starved greedy people if called geniuses then it’s not manipulation but a well thought of strategy to call din ko raat and raat ko din…”

Targeting Karan Johar, she wrote, “People like Karan Johar should be questioned for their conduct, he is more interested in everyone’s sex life than in his films scripts, he self admittedly buys reviews, stars and fake collection numbers and tickets… this time around he tried to ride Hinduism and south wave.. all turned Pujaris suddenly and begged south actors, writers and directors to promote their film… they will do everything but not hire competent writer, director, actors and other talent… why not in the first place hire those they went begging to fix this disaster called ‘Brahmastra’.
