There are some shocking things in ‘Kalki’

Prabhas’ movie Kalki 2898 AD has released in cinemas. After Adipurush and Salaar, there was a dilemma whether to go to the theater and watch this film early in the morning or not. But this movie was so much talked about that I couldn’t stop myself from watching it. Watching Prabhas’ movie Kalki, it seems that Prabhas has a big guest appearance in this movie. If we want to see more of him, we have to wait for Kalki 2898 AD Part 2. You can definitely watch this movie for the new technology and action shown in the rest of the movie. But don’t watch in the morning, you might feel sleepy in the first half.


Before the film’s release, the production warned not to share spoilers. So let’s try to tell the story without spoiling it for you. Is. In 2898, the world has changed. In this world the rich have become richer. The poor have become the slaves of the rich. But there are some revolutionaries among these slaves. They built their own city called Shambhala, where they still believe in God. His enemy is Kali (Kamal Haasan). The bud has created a new world for the rich far away from Earth, which they call the Complex. The overall point is that God is about to be born, the revolutionaries want him to be born, but Kali and her army want to destroy this child before it is born. To know more story you have to go to Kalki 2898 AD.

First of all, in this film, when we see a young Amitabh Bachchan playing Ashwathama in the era of Mahabharata on the big screen, one feels value for money. But now South filmmakers are requested that while making Bhaiya Do, don’t make the first half so long that the audience starts watching on the mobile screen instead of the screen in front of them. If the story can be completed in one part then there is no need to drag it into another part. Talking about the film, this film which seems boring in the first half, changes in the second half as if time has suddenly changed, emotions have changed, life has changed.

Directing and writing

Kalki 2898 AD is directed by Nag Ashwin. This is his first action film and he has done wonders on the big screen. When we watch this movie in the theater it feels like we are watching a Hollywood movie. Every action scene of the film is fantastic and original. Be it the battle of Prabhas or the battle between Ashwatthama and Bhairava. On one hand, while Nag is seen using many modern fighting techniques in Ashwin Bhairav’s action scenes, on the other hand, for Ashwatthama, he has designed some unique traditional action scenes referencing the Mahabharata. The story is also penned by Nag Ashwin, the film moves slowly in the first half. But in the second half, the film goes straight from first gear to fourth gear. The story also becomes interesting after the interval. The film has also added the right flavor of comedy.

Nag Ashwin had earlier done Mahanati with Keerthy Suresh and Dulquer Salmaan. The special thing about this film was that there is no action in this film, only emotion and drama. Nag Ashwin has won the hearts of the audience with this film. But this play does not appear even after the discovery of Kalki in 2898 AD. Even though there are emotions without drama, they cannot reach us. For example, Deepika is shedding tears for her child, but we can’t connect with her. The emotional attachment that we get emotional after Deepika’s character gets hanged in Jaawan is not seen in this film. But the actors have tried to give 100 percent from their side. The film does not have powerful dialogues or good songs like Baahubali or Pushpa, which go viral or are remembered even after the film is over.


Kalki’s biggest complaint with the makers of 2898 AD is about Prabhas’ character in the film. Prabhas seems to have less screen space compared to other characters. He has only a few scenes in the first half. Prabhas is playing another character along with Bhairav ​​in this film. Prabhas has won hearts with his acting, comic timing and spectacular action. But if compared to the characters of Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Kamal Haasan, Bhairav’s character in the film looks very weak and confusing. Looking at his character, it is not at all clear that he is the hero of the film, but in the climax, it becomes clear that the film will take a turn in the future. Hopefully, Bhairav’s character will be worked on more in the second half of the film.

Amitabh Bachchan playing the character of Ashwatthama is undoubtedly the main attraction of this film. There was a different energy in the theater after his entry. The way Amitabh Bachchan has done action scenes in Kalki, youngsters will also feel ashamed. His energy on screen is amazing. A must go theater to see Amitabh Bachchan in this film. Kamal Haasan has done full justice to his role. But for them we want to say that this is just a sneak peek, part 2 is yet to come. A special effort has been made on her look in this film as well. Even Deepika Padukone plays her character with sincerity. We forget Disha Patani’s character before the second half. Better than him are the cameos of Dulquer Salmaan, Vijay Devarakonda, Ram Gopal Varma and SS Rajamouli, which we enjoy a lot.

For the best cinematic experience, definitely watch Kalki 2898 AD. Buji and Bhairav’s bond will entertain you a lot. Amitabh Bachchan has been seen in a powerful character after a long time. One can definitely enjoy this movie by going to the theater with the family.
