Ayan Mukerji’s Astraverse received a warm welcome from fans. Brahmastra, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, and Mouni Roy in key roles, has had an impressive run at the box office so far. The first part of the trilogy managed to pique everyone’s interest in the storyline of the film. However, the movie’s ending leaves you mulling over the many possibilities that could take place in Part 2, and here’s what we want to know from the filmmaker.
The very first question that popped into everyone’s head was about Shiva’s mother. She apparently dies in a fire. But having established that she is the Jal Astra in the film, we wonder why was she defeated and better yet, how it managed to kill her. Another question that everyone wants an answer to is why, after the battle, did she not return to the ashram?
We all know that Dev, Shiva’s father is alive. The next film will (hopefully) shed deeper insights into this character. We hope Mukerji answers queries about how he did not die after fighting Amrita. How has he been in the hiding so far, and why has he not fought his own battles till now?
Another angle we hope the film explores is Dev’s connection with Junoon. We would love to know how the two met, why is she on his side and what factors motivated her to sacrifice her life for Brahma Dev. After the climax scenes, will she return to Earth considering her goal is yet not attained?
While Amitabh Bachchan aka the guru did not know that Amrita had a son before Shiva arrived, was Dev unaware too? We would love to see how the interactions between Dev and Shiva would be. It will be interesting to see how Dev reacts when he meets his son, who might also be his rival.
Bhatt’s character might have gone to waste in Brahmastra, it would be fun to see if she plays
a more important role in the battle that is yet to take place. She is Shiva’s button, but will she
be brought down to just that or would her character be explored in more depth?
