What was Dune’s story?

Talking about the Hollywood movie Dune, this movie also did amazing work at the box office and was loved all over the world. The story of the film was on a dystopian background. It shows how those in power oppress the common people and their aim is to increase their dominance. People are living a monotonous life in a completely ruined society. They are being persecuted. It is adapted from a novel by American author Frank Herbert published in 1965. His story does not match Kalki’s.

What are the similarities and differences between the two?


Talking about the movie, Kalki 2898 AD showed a lot of similarities. The background and shooting locations of both the films seem to be the same. Because a dystopian society is created about the future and water scarcity in the future is assumed to be certain. As such, whenever a dystopian society is shown, both show a desert area so that it can be related to the situation at that time. This similarity was seen in both the films. Also, in a dystopian society, people are living in poverty and helplessness. The only demand of such a society is survival. This point is also a similarity between the two films.


But there are many differences between these two films which prove that Prabhas’ film is not a remake of Hollywood film Dune. And the biggest difference between the two films is its story. While on the one hand the film Doon tells the story of power, possession and rule, on the other hand if we talk about Kalki, it is directly taken from the Hindu mythology that people love to connect with. While the stories of both the films are different, Prabhas’s film cannot be a copy of Do in any way.
