Indian epics can rival Marvel's stories: Kalki 2898 AD director

Indian epics can rival Marvel's stories: Nag Ashwin

Kalki 2898 AD


The movie "Kalki 2898 AD" has received acclaim for blending elements from the Mahabharata with science fiction. Director Nag Ashwin, who is already working on a sequel, is confident that Indian mythological stories if portrayed accurately, can rival the complexity of the Western superhero genre.

 

Featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Prabhas, and Deepika Padukone in prominent roles, this film has proven to be a commercial success despite the failure of many high-budget films at the box office.

 

Is "Kalki 2898 AD" India's answer to superhero movies from the stables of Marvel and DC Studios in Hollywood? "I don't know if it is an answer or not, but we definitely have the kind of stories and the depth, complexity and heroism that any other Marvel or DC movie (has). We just have to delve into it and tell it in the correct way.

 

"If we tell it in a way that the generation now is used to, maybe mix it with sci-fi, I feel that would be the correct way. And that's actually worked out because people are now feeling that it is our story," Ashwin told PTI in an interview.

 

In the futuristic dystopian metropolis of Kashi (Varanasi), the plot centres on Bachchan's undying fighter Ashwathhama, who endeavours to safeguard the forthcoming incarnation of Lord Vishnu, borne by Padukone's Sumathi. Prabhas' character Bhairava, a mercenary, is dispatched to locate her by Haasan's adversary, Supreme Yaskin.

 

The follow-up to "Kashi 2898 AD" is currently in progress, he mentioned, and it will be an extension of the narrative, offering a blend of the familiar and the new.
