Brahmastra trailer: Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in a still. (courtesy: ayan_mukerji)
The trailer of Brahmastrais here and it is a cauldron of love, light, superpowers and a stellar cast. Need we say more? The trailer begins with a voiceover by Amitabh Bachchan, who introduces us to the story of Brahmastra and the master of it is a young boy called Shiva (Ranbir Kapoor), who is unaware of his powers. Amitabh Bachchan also mentions that for years, the powers of water, fire and air have been trapped in an astra called Brahmastra. The trailer then chronicles of the love story of Shiva and Isha (Alia Bhatt) and their chemistry is literal fireworks (you'll know when you see). Coming back to Shiva and his powers, he is represented by the "astra" (element) fire, which also makes him the missing puzzle to the phenomenon of the Brahmastra. Assisted by Amitabh Bachchan (the "guru") and "artist" Anish (played by Nagarjuna), Shiva's only goal is to attain the Brahmastra for a better world. However, the dark forces, represented by Junoon (Mouni Roy) stand in his way. The question is if Shiva is indeed the master of the Brahmastra. The answer can only be unveiled on September 9.
There is so much to look out for in the trailer - Isha and Shiva's chemistry, the larger than life visuals, Mouni Roy's demonic avatar and well, of course, Ayan Mukerji's direction.

Ahead of the trailer's release, the makers of Brahmastra introduced us to the characters - one post at a time. Mouni Roy will be seen playing the role of Junoon in the film. Nagarjuna's character was introduced as "artist Anish." Amitabh Bachchan's poster introduced him as the "Guru" of a desi lightsaber.
