The Plot

The story begins with the end of the Mahabharata war, between Lord Krishna’s curse on Aswathama for immortality. Cut to 2898 AD; there was just one city left: Kasi. It lay in the cruel hands of Commander Manas. This forms the backdrop for the long-awaited birth of Kalki.

A Visual Marvel

The mind-blowing visuals definitely form a superlative in the Kalki 2898 AD. Kasi is brought alive by the cinematography in this movie, where fertile women are killed and men enslaved. Mystery elements, as represented by Complex—helmed by the enigmatic God King Supreme Yaskin essayed by Kamal Haasan, add curiosity to the narrative.

Flaws and Detours

Theatrical in its visuals, this film is not entirely without blemishes. The first half crawls through unwarranted detours and subplots, with a virtually meandering character of Prabhas. The intended moments of humor often fall flat, and the romantic subplot with Roxie, enroleplayed by Disha Patani, seems forcefully fitted. But these flaws are all partially covered under the overwhelming visual display which keeps the viewers in the fairyland of the creation of the movie.
