Offering a glimpse into the post-apocalyptic dystopian world, the first episode of ‘The Prelude of Kalki 2898 AD’ featuring director Nag Ashwin has been unveiled. In the four-minute video, the filmmaker is seen opening up about his concept and vision for the film wherein he shares that this film is inspired by classic Indian mythology and epics, aiming to create a unique blend of sci-fi and mythology. Furthermore, emphasising on the film’s climax and its universal appeal, he revealed how he was inspired by Indian mythological tales and Hollywood classics like Star Wars to create a narrative that is uniquely Indian yet universal.

Nag Ashwin explains his inspiration behind Kalki

Opening up about his vision, Nag Ashwin said, “In India, we grew up with epics like ‘Mahabharata’ and ‘Ramayana’, and there is another age to go, and that age is the final battle. When you grow up, you watch a lot of foreign films which are in the comic book space or Marvel, or ‘Spiderman’ or ‘Star Wars’, you always wonder where are our superheroes because they are as heroic and larger than life, as anybody else. The world of Kalki 2898 AD is a sequel to the last epic that we have of these characters of the previous yugas. We still have another age to go, and that age is the final battle, that age is where the end essentially has to begin and everything has to come to a climax, like all of these stories and all of these nine avatars. All these battles that happened, small or big since the creation of time has to end somewhere so we tried to attempt to write that and that’s where the last story of her mythology, sorts of ends.”
