Which Astra Is Most Powerful In Brahmastra? Shiva Posses A Special Power!

The much-awaited movie, Brahmastra has finally hit the screens. The film was expected to be a blockbuster, but it has received mixed reviews from critics and fans. The VFX and sound of the movie are spectacular, but it lacks a storyline. The concept of ‘Astraverse’ was great, but the ‘Love’ Power messed up. Overall, the movie could have been much better if you had removed the ‘Love-Part’ from a superhero movie.

The movie is about ‘Astraverse’ where various characters have different powers of ‘Astras.’ Each Astra signifies one power. The characters: Ranbir Kapoor, Nagarjuna, Amitabh Bacchan, Tanzen, Sharukh Khan, and Mouni Roy have different strengths. So, let’s explore Which Astra Is Most Powerful In Brahmastra?
