Why is it special

Comparison with Marvel
Soon after the trailer for Brahmastra was published, people went to social media to declare it reminded them of several Hollywood superheroes. Some linked Ranbir’s role to Marvel superheroes, while others thought the Astraverse premise reminded them of Harry Potter.
