Kalki 2898 AD: As Per Our Mythology, Here’s Everything You Need To Know About Kalki Purana And Shambala

Director Nag Ashwin has brought to life Prabhas’ Kalki 2898 AD, a fascinating fusion of futuristic themes and Hindu mythology.

Starring Prabhas, Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, and Kamal Haasan among its stellar cast, Kalki 2898 AD was released on June 27. Movie enthusiasts are especially fascinated by the film’s portrayal of the legendary location of Shambala, which has drawn excellent reviews from viewers.

The main character in the film is Amitabh Bachchan’s Ashwathama. During the Kurukshetra War in the Treta Yuga, Krishna cursed Ashwathama, a character from the Mahabharata, to live till the end of the Kali Yuga. Krishna predicts that he will resurrect to save the world after the Kali Yuga.

Six thousand years later, in the film, Prabhas’s character Bhairava aspires to join the most opulent complex on earth. Yaskin, played by Kamal Haasan, is a character who simultaneously wants control over everything. He’s looking for Deepika Padukone’s character, Sumathi, who happens to be carrying an unusual pregnancy. The primary events of the film take place in Shambala, which they arrive at via their respective journeys.

Shambala, on the other hand, is a prominent location in Hindu mythology and is not the film’s innovation. Kalki legends state that near the conclusion of the Kali Yuga, the tenth avatar of Vishnu is supposed to be born in Shambala. Shambala, a picturesque hamlet with lakes and ponds, is yet plagued by sin. Kalki’s goal is to purge the evil and bring Dharma (good) back. Kalki is supposed to have received a visit from the gods at Shambala after carrying out his job. After completing his job, Kalki will return to Vaikuntha, where he will end the mortal world and restore Satya Yuga.

The Kalki Purana is a Hindu text that describes the arrival of Kalki and is the source of the mythology surrounding Shambala and Kalki. Kalki is portrayed in the Purana as a sword-wielding warrior who rides a white horse and battles evil to bring back harmony. The place where Kalki would be born and start his quest to rid the world of all impurities is portrayed as a secret paradise called Shambala.

By merging these antiquated tales with a future story, Nag Ashwin’s film introduces these tales to a contemporary audience. Viewers may now delve into the intricate tales that have been handed down through the ages thanks to the portrayal of Shambala in Kalki 2898 AD, which has reignited interest in Hindu mythology.
