Explained: How Brahmastra shuts down the #BoycottBollywood trend like a boss with its huge box office collection
Brahmastra proved that the negativity on social media from trolls holds zero value and credibility and if the content is good, out-of-the-box and exciting, no one can stop it from becoming a huge success.
Cinema was once competing with television and then came OTT. It battled multiple debates, discussions and even disasters.
Brahmastra has some of the most bafflingly juvenile dialogue ever written and it betrays the sense of spectacle and depth that it otherwise wants to go for.
