More talk and anticipation have surrounded Kalki than any other film in recent memory. ‘Kalki’ is the primary reason for Nag Ashwin’s choice of subject. And in order to have a meaningful discussion on Nag Ashwin’s film on this topic, we must first understand Kalki’s tale.

Who is this Kalki?

Our myths and legends state that an avatar always appears to save the people when this world is in peril. For decades, we have been worshiping ten of their avatars. As a result, the lives of Parusurama, Srirama, Balarama, Krishna, Kurma, Varaha, Narasimha, Vamana, and Matsya have already come to an end. The final avatar to appear is Kalki. This indicates that Sri Maha Vishnu is in this Kalki Annamata’s tenth incarnation.

Numerous writings, such as the Bhagavata and the Kalki Purana, describe Kalki. The Puranas state that Kalki will take on human form after the sins in the Kali Yuga, in which karma is evident everywhere, become more balanced. Our Puranas state that one Mahayuga is made up of four Yugas. Together, the yugas of Krita, Treta, Dwapara, and Kali make up one Mahayuga. Of them, three have already come to an end. Kaliyuga is on the go right now.

According to the Kalki Purana, Kalki was born in Shambha, the gods’ hidden city in the Himalayas, during this Kali Yuga. According to the Shambhas, Kalki was born to Vishnu Yasuda and Sumati. Goddess Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu, likewise comes in a form in every avatar. Also, according to the Kalki Purana, it is written in the Kalki Purana that Goddess Lakshmi will incarnate with the name Padma in a family belonging to the Brihadradha clan in the Sinhala kingdom, which is now Sri Lanka. Adisakta is supposed to be Kalki’s protector and savior after he is born. Four of the seven immortals—Parusurama, Kripacharya, Ashwatthama, and Vyasa Maharishi—come to Shambhala to see Kalki, according to the Kalki Purana. They all four aid Kalki in the establishment of Dharma. It’s also stated that Kalki is the name of the child they had. According to legend, Kalki restarts Krit Yuga after ending Kali. In short, this is Kalki’s narrative.

What’s in 2898 AD Kalki?

Regarding Nag Ashwin’s Kalki film, it primarily features three different kinds of cities. The ‘complex’, where various resources are stored, is the first one and is also the residence of Supreme Yaskin (Kamal Haasan). His army makes him the world’s ruler. Additionally, all of the earth’s resources have been depleted, leaving the town of “Kashi” in a dead state. ‘Shambala’ is another important city. This is home to refugees from every faith. They all think that Kalki, the great warrior, will arrive one day to save them. But since the Dwapara era, when the Mahabharata was set, Ashwatthama (Amitabh Bachchan) has been waiting for Kalki to arrive. Bhairava (Prabhas), on the other hand, makes every effort to live in a complex with all the amenities. At that moment, Yaskin finds out that Kalki is going to be born inside of Deepika Padukone’s character, Sumathi. To bring her to him, he gives the command for his soldiers. Bhairava is promised entry into the compound if he assists Yaskin’s men in this affair. Still, Bhairava departs to bring Sumati. However, Ashwatthama promises to shield Sumati—who is carrying Kalki inside her—from any fly. This leads to a bloody conflict between Bhairava and Aswatthama. And which of these two prevailed? What was Bhairava’s initial character? Who is Kalki in real life? Was there a conflict between Kalki and Yaskin? All this should be known by the film. And how this Kalki 2898 AD was directed by Nag Ashwin. Who and how did they act? Let’s find out the full review right now.
