Kalki 2898 AD

– Review

Set in the dystopian landscape of the world’s last city, Kashi, in 2898 AD, Kamal Haasan, the ruler of Complex, envisions a new world and establishes a fertility lab to bring it to life.

Among the many women tested, he finds Deepika Padukone to be the perfect candidate for his grand experiment.

Meanwhile, Prabhas, a ruthless bounty hunter, dreams of entering Complex for a better life. At the same time, the enigmatic Amitabh Bachchan emerges with a mission to save Deepika from Kamal’s clutches. A fierce clash ensues as Prabhas, driven by the bounty on Deepika, confronts Amitabh.

Will Prabhas succeed in handing Deepika over to Complex? What motivates Amitabh to protect her? What past connections do Amitabh and Prabhas share? And what drastic measures will Kamal take next forms the core plot of the story.

Prabhas, steals the show as the bounty hunter with a quirky nature, humour, greed, and cunning personality.

He fits the Bhairava character perfectly, and his scenes with his digital companion Bujji (voiced by Keerthy Suresh) are a delight.

Nag Ashwin excels as both writer and director, bringing his vision to life with the help of a talented cast and crew.

The screenplay is interesting and keeps the audiemce engaged throughout the rubtime of the film.

Prabhas’ other role is a surprise one needs to experience on the big screen only.

Amitabh Bachchan’s portrayal of Ashwatthama is the film’s highlight.

His screen presence is electric, and his minimal dialogue speaks volumes.

The confrontation scenes between Prabhas and Amitabh are top notch.

Deepika Padukone character’s emotional depth is compelling, and Nag Ashwin’s writing brings a few deeply resonant, heartwarming moments.

Kamal Haasan is captivating with his intense dialogue delivery and fierce expressions.

His voice carries an intimidating depth. Kamal is unrecognizable, fully immersing himself in the baddie character with a remarkable performance.

Djordje Stojiljkovic’s cinematography is outstanding.

Santhosh Narayanan delivers an impressive score, though his songs might take time to grow on listeners.

Rating: 4/5
