Ever since the trailer of Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmāstra: Part One – Shiva’ starring Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, and Alia Bhatt among others was released, it surely created a buzz.
Hence, when the movie finally hit theatres, we took to social media to gauge the reaction of moviegoers. While some said it’s a ‘visually cinematic experience’, others opined that it’s an ‘average’ movie.
Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut also gave her review of the movie and declared it a ‘disaster’ after going through the movie’s reviews online.

Taking to her Instagram stories, the ‘Queen’ actor started by sharing the screengrab of a tweet that gave only a half star to the movie. Reacting to it, she wrote, “This is what happens when you try to sell a lie.”
“Karan Johar in every show forces people to call Alia Bhatt and Ranbir the best actors and Ayan Mukerji 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?”
Moving on, she shared the link to a Business Insider article that said that Brahmastra wiped out over Rs 800 crore wealth of PVR and Inox investors. Commenting on it, Kangana said that they bought reviews.
“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.”
Targetting Ayan Mukerji, she wrote that everyone who called him a genius should be jailed immediately.
“He took 12 years to make this film, he replaced 14 DOPs he shot for more than 400 days for this film and changed 85 ADs 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’s success. Such opportunists, such creativity deprived people, success-starved greedy people if called geniuses then it’s not manipulation but a well thought of a strategy to call din ko raat and raat ko din.”
Seems like she wasn’t done with slamming KJo. Hence, she wrote in another story that 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. They will do everything but not hire competent writer, director, actors and other talents. Why not in the first place hire those they went begging to fix this disaster called Brahmastra.”
Lastly, she said that ‘movie mafia‘ has taken over the system and sucked studios dry.
“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 individuals producers those too far and few.”
Kangana is known to be loud and clear with her opinions. With her elaborate reviews, she has taken down everyone involved in the movie. What do you have to say about her take?
