  • The Brahmastra trailer released yesterday has triggered hilarious memes on social media.
  • Netizens have compared it with Naagin, Shaktimaan, and other iconic characters on television.

The trailer of the much-awaited Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt movie dropped yesterday. It reveals Ranbir as Shiva who has a special connection with the fire and hence it never affects him. Amitabh Bachchan is playing the role of his guru in Brahmastra and the first impression is that he is playing a character that is close to that of Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series.

The VFX is awesome but most of the social media users felt that the movie is a cross-over between Harry Potter and Marvel series. Nonetheless, Mouni Roy who is the original Naagin of Indian television adds desi tadka to the story reprising a Naagin-like character in Brahmastra.

Even then the content looked creative enough to inspire meme fest from the netizens who came up with weird and in many instances logical comparisons of other characters/movies with that of Brahmastra. However, what dominated was the comparison between Brahmastra and Naagin. But there were a few who also said that the movie is a mix of all the big franchises and serials including Shaktimaan, Captain Planet, Power Rangers, Jaani Dushman, Aabra Ka Daabra, and more. Many even called it Sasta Thor and ridiculed it for making a cheap copy of iconic cinematic characters.

Importantly, the trailer was dropped just a day after the 2nd death anniversary of Sushant Singh Rajput which also irked many Sush fans who trolled the Brahmastra actors and the production house badly. Even then, it is a first-of-its-kind movie for India and is expected to be made in three parts. And there is no doubt that the VFX is spectacular and quite impressive.
