Ayan Mukerji on criticism of Brahmastra dialogues: I thought this would give the film a soul
Mumbai (Maharashtra): Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva was a project that would have done either extremely well or not at all. After seeing its performance in the first few days of its release, it would be safe to say that the film is on its path to massive success. Audiences are storming theatres and hooting at every action scene. However, some are not impressed with a few aspects of the film. The script and dialogues of the film have been highly criticised by many for many reasons. In an interview with Indian Express, Ayan Mukerji expressed his views on the backlash that the film is getting.
When the filmmaker was asked about his opinions on the backlash the writing and dialogues are getting, he asked if the sentiment was for a certain part of the film or throughout. “I thought this would give the film a soul. That the greatest energy comes from within you and the greatest form of energy is when you are in a state of love. It may have sounded better on paper than it came across to certain people.” He further stated the example of the first, most awaited song of the film, Kesariya which received immense backlash in the first 48 hours for the inclusion of the word ‘love storiyaan’. Ayan revealed that even today the song is topping charts with the backlash, long forgotten. “The song continued to be a blockbuster, and nobody talks about it today. So, point noted. But India has a diverse audience.”
While the filmmaker has revealed that the sequel of Brahmastra will release in December 2025, he did not mention any further details on who will play the iconic role of Dev. Deepika Padukone has been speculated to portray the female lead in the film which will start from where the first part ended. It will have a back-and-forth concept where the present and the past of Dev will be traced.
