Ayan Mukerji has taken the criticism of Brahmastra dialogues into consideration and plans to deliver better dialogues in its next part.
Ayan Mukerji has promised ‘better dialogues’ in Brahmastra Part 2: Dev after receiving criticism and trolling over the dialogues in Part 1: Shiva. Many Brahmastra fans commented on social media that the dialogues sounded awkward in the mythological film. Some also made fun of how Alia Bhatt’s Isha keeps taking Shiva’s name throughout the film.
In the second part of the movie, Ayan Mukerji seeks to provide fans with better dialogue. He has graciously accepted the criticism. The remark was made when he discussed the three-year interval between the first and second installments of his intended trilogy.
He told Sony Music India, “Look at Baahubali, 2 years pass just like that. We have a very big country, I think it will take six months just for everybody to see Brahmastra. It would have been amazing if we could have given you Brahmastra 2 next year. I would have loved it, it would have been great for me.”
Ayan added, “But making Brahmastra 1 in India; it is a fully ‘Made In India’ product, it was very challenging. So now to make Part 2 even happen in 2-3 years is also a very very big challenge. Making it at the same quality with better dialogues (laughs) and more juicy storytelling is a very very big challenge.”

It was Ayan’s idea
Ayan had previously explained at a press conference that he and dialogue writer Hussain Dalal, who also co-wrote the dialogues of his last film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, penned these kinds of lines for Brahmastra as the leads Shiva and Isha are ‘modern characters.’
Ayan also revealed that it was he, who made Alia’s Isha say Shiva’s name again and again, as it is a personal habit of his. He told NDTV, “When I talk, I keep taking people’s names a lot, this is my habit. So that stayed in the script and came in the film as well.”
Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva was released in theatres on September 9. It also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, Mouni Roy, and Shah Rukh Khan among others.
