Bollywood Crazies Opinion: The story is excellent and has been presented in a good way. The screenplay is a bit slow in the first half but the second half was great. There are many comedy scenes in the first half which I felt irritating after few minutes and I am happy that the director made second half pretty serious. Talking about performances Amitabh Bachchan and Kamal Haasan sir have stole the show from the hands of Prabhas and Deepika. The main pillar of this film was one and only Big B. Director Nag Ashwin did a great job in making this extraordinary film. His vision is big and he did deliver it to some extent. The production value is good and that makes scenes logical and believe. I personally liked Big B’s younger version as if I am watching his angry young man avatar after so many years. Right from the concept till execution, I find this film original and par to Hollywood big studio films. Prabhas has finally delivered a big film and Hindi audience will also get attracted due to Big B. The content is good and most importantly the intent of the filmmaker. I personally feel excited for Nag Ashwin’s vision as he made a big film with only few loopholes. There are hardly any songs and they don’t even matter as well. There are many cameos in this movie which will be liked by audiences especially in South India. The VFX is good but could have been better and it is less effective than Brahmastra VFX. The Hindi dubbing is also average. In short, Kalki 2898 AD has all element to become the biggest ever Blockbuster in India in 2024.

Kalki 2898 AD budget is reportedly around 600 crores and there are big chances that this film will recover that cost it easily.

Story, Screenplay and direction done by Nag Ashwin. This film has been produced by C Ashwani Dutt. The cinematography work has been done by Djordje Stojiljkovic. The editing handled by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao and the musical score given by Santhosh Narayanan.

Altogether, Kalki 2898 AD is one of its own kind of films from Indian Cinema in Sci-fi genre and there are big chances that it will be loved by audiences.

Last Word: Watch it for Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan and Nag Ashwin’s directorial work.

Big Spoiler: Kalki 2898 AD Part 2 is also on the cards.

Bollywood Crazies Ratings: Kalki 2898 AD Review- 3.5 stars out of 5 stars.
