One of the best things to do in this age of cinema is to merge our own Hindu culture with some modern concepts, rather than simply replicate western ideals. While many filmmakers struggle to match that standard, it appears that director Nag Ashwin has brilliantly blended Hindu epics into his latest sci-fi picture “Kalki 2898 AD,” starring Superstar Prabhas.’

Nag Ashwin made several references to weapons featured in Hindu epics throughout the debut trailer for “Project K,” which was released the other day. He used Lord Vishnu’s weapons such as Padmastram, Parasuram’s axe, Sudharshana Chakra (Prabhas activates it), and many others. The incorporation of deeply established Hindu mythology into a science fiction picture is admirable. When this film enters theatres, it will clearly demonstrate the power of Hindu mythology to the globe.

On the other hand, the quality of the visual effects and creative aspect of “Project K” is exceeding expectations, and the first teaser and trailer of the picture should be a couple of bars above that. If Nag Ashwin succeeds in this as well, this enterprise will be unstoppable.

Kalki 2898 AD, directed by Nag Ashwin, stars Prabhas, Kamal Haasan, Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Disha Patani, and others.
