Kalki 2898 AD: This Indian Sci-Fi Epic is Blowing Up the Box Office

Kalki 2898 AD

Yo, movie lovers, buckle up because Kalki 2898 AD is here to wreck the box office and it’s epic! This Indian sci-fi action film isn’t just visually stunning, it’s also the most expensive movie ever made in India. (sorry RRR, you got dethroned!).

High Budget, High Rewards

Made for a cool $75 million, Kalki 2898 AD was a gamble, but it paid off. This post-apocalyptic flick raked in a whopping $66 million in its opening weekend alone and is currently sitting pretty in third place at the worldwide box office. That’s right, Indian films are taking over!

Star Power and a Hindu Twist

Starring Prabhas and Amitabh Bachchan, two HUGE stars in Indian cinema, Kalki isn’t afraid to get a little spiritual. The movie’s title references Kalki, the tenth incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu. Even if you’re not a Hinduism expert, the story – a group trying to save a special unborn child in a messed-up future – is gripping.

Western Audiences Love It Too!

Just because it has Hindu references doesn’t mean you need a degree in religion to enjoy it. Kalki 2898 AD is crushing it with Western audiences too. Who knew sci-fi and religion could be such a winning combo?

The Future Looks Bright for Kalki

Get this, Kalki 2898 AD is just Part 1! Director Nag Ashwin is already working on a sequel, and there are even rumors of a whole Kalki cinematic universe. To hold you over until then, check out the animated prequel series, B & B: Bujji and Bhairava, streaming on Prime Video right now.

Where to Watch Kalki 2898 AD

The movie is still in theaters, so check your local listings and see if you can snag a ticket. For those who prefer to stream, it will eventually hit Amazon Prime Video (Hindi version on Netflix too!), but an official release date hasn’t been announced yet.  Hold tight, the wait won’t be long!
