Brahmastra dialogues were a real pain in the ass and felt like watching a Marvel film dubbed in Hindi! So we thought of converting them into English to check if they made sense.
Now the unanimous votes in the review of Brahmastra where critics and audience both are aligning together is this – the dialogues in the film are shitty. They’ve already sparked a meme fest on social media, especially regarding Alia Bhatt’s character Isha. But Brahmastra dialogues, aka a dumbed-down version of explaining the astraverse to us, was a failed attempt that you can’t help but notice. They precisely sound like almost all Hollywood films when dubbed into Hindi.
This was noticed by a lot of people around and drives you to wonder whether Hussain Dalal, who wrote the dialogues in the movie, wrote them in English first and then converted them into Hindi. We don’t know whether that’s the case or not but we still went ahead and converted some of these Hindi dialogues to English for you to check if they make sense!
