“Kalki 2898 AD,” hailed for its stunning VFX and powerful climax, along with exceptional performances from its star-studded cast, has been making waves worldwide.

Director Nag Ashwin addressed this in an interview, acknowledging the feedback,“It has been a universal response that people found the first half slow, and it’s very valid. In a three-hour film, if viewers liked two hours and 54 minutes, I will take that.”

The creators emphasized that the groundbreaking visuals, which are the main topic of discussion, compensate for the slow start. The film’s budget of Rs 600 crore is the highest in Indian cinema, and it has already surpassed this figure at the box office, worldwide.

Amidst rumors that Mahesh Babu plays Lord Krishna in the film, Ashwin clarified the approach saying, “This is how Krishna will be in the film. One of the first things I was very sure of was we should have him in silhouette; there should not be any form. Once you do that, you humanize him in a way. We didn’t want to humanize him.”

Despite mixed reviews on its pacing, “Kalki 2898 AD” continues to captivate audiences with its visual brilliance and compelling narrative.
