7 REASONS WHY THE BRAHMASTRA TRAILER DOESN’T WORK FOR ME


 

When Dharma, meddles in Dharma. 

  1. In Art, Intent matters- After SSR death and the backlash he received, he needed a pro-Hindutva image make-over, which was felt by his friend SRK too. When he wanted to make a film for you and I, he did KKKG. This film appears to be an attempt at a image makeover. Now, do you want to pay in?
  2. How do you Fit an Ocean into a Spoon? – Brahmastra never fails. As per our history (not mythology), it is the last resort to destroy dark forces. Its importance, when seen in the spirit of our gods and mystics is like an ocean. When shown in the hands of RK, through a modern plot and in a modern get-up it feels like KJo is trying to fit an ocean into a spoon. Is it a weapon which will destroy him or your sanity? 
  3. Badshah of North versus Bahubali of the South: Jealous Much? – When Rajamouli made Bahubali, he placed a story in that ancient time and used VFX to show the environment. He made art for the sake of art. How to create showering thunder and blazing fire via VFX is taught to beginners in any Animation School. Here the VFX seems to have been used to cover up for the inherent lack of plot, story and character. Looks unnecessary.  Besides, the original trailer was not even in 4K. What is the hurry about, boss?
  4. DostiBaniDushmani– Brahmastra- the weapon of destruction. A trailer nicely done to keep the suspense of SRK’s character. But a fraction of second into the trailer, and you see SRK with his famous arms-outstretched pose. The very least you can do to respect a subject as important as this is not put your heroism or ego at display.  
  5. Will the Real Hero Please Stand Up? -To demonstrate superpowers in a human you need a superhuman plot or a character doing superhuman acts. This is how Bahubali and KGF worked. The hero, when looking like a romantic hero, needs either a deadly plot serving mankind or saving the planet which audiences can relate to. Clearly, the former did not use VFX to cover for a hero- like Brahmastra tries to do.  
  6. Ancestery.com Could Never– As we already mentioned, this isn’t a new story. But the deliberate attempt at making it look contemporary, while being sold in pockets of ancient lore, is what doesn’t work. As is the Bandra Aesthetic In Benares. A #Bandra aesthetic to speak of about what is essentially #Benares our oldest city living?  RK looks like he has walked straight out of YJHD’s set, and Alia out of every Dharma production ever. 
  7. Kesariya Tera Concept hai Piya- Our ancestral knowledge understood that dark forces aren’t just vixens with heavy masacra, infact they were a part of our own vikriti-distortion. Somehow the cross bewteen Naagin x Wanda Vision seems to make it look otherwise. 

 

The most powerful weapon, the #Bhramastra is deserving of far more. We wait and watch out, to see how the force of #Brahmastra pans out- a nuclear fission or fusion. 

 

Responses

While drawing our algorithm, we start with identifying our symptoms. Do we look at our symptoms of today or from our childhood? Our tendencies also seem like they are about today and not from our childhood. How should I interpret this?

You can start with identifying your symptoms today and make your Algorithm identifying your Lack, Tendency and Pattern. It may seem like the tendencies are loud and clear today. This is only because as an adult, you are either more aware of it, or the tendency is more pronounced. However, if you go back to that age group of 7-14, you will find that the same tendency existed back then as well.  

For example – your lack is abandonment and so your tendency is need to prove/ excel. As an adult, you try extremely hard to prove yourself at work, but maybe as a ten-year-old you wanted to make sure that you win a colouring competition or feel worthy by collecting the maximum number of berries or fruits. 

 So, you would notice how the nature of tendency existed even back then – sometimes subtly, sometimes pronounced. It is just a matter of developing sensitivity to recognize it in that time and space. However, you can always work with current scenarios. 

Now that I have made my algorithm and have identified my lack, what do I do with this? Do I have to re-visit my childhood?

In every moment of disappointment – current or past, you can experience the lack. There are two ways to attend to the lack, once identified – 

  1.  You may simply keep your Algorithm/Lack in awareness by writing the events of the current time and go into breathing 
  2. You can revisit your childhood and write about moments that you experienced the Lack/Algorithm and once you have written a few events (in detail), you may lay down and begin to observe your breath. 

In either of the processes, your Algorithm/lack is in your complete awareness and observing your breath after this would only bring an expansion in your awareness. 

After finding my LTP and mapping my algorithm, I can see how I have suffered in my childhood and continue to do so. What can I do to remedy this and reverse my suffering?

 Since you are seeking the cure, you must know that state of meditation is the state of cure. The more you are in this state, the more you move towards light, thus curing your suffering.  

All the things which come into your awareness, must now be attended to by Observing your breath. For process of attending to what has surfaced, refer to Ques no 8
