 "#Kalki2898AD: SPECTACULAR., Rating: '4 stars', #Kalki2898AD has substance, style, fantastic second half AND #Prabhas in supreme form... #NagAshwin creates a world that's breathtaking and brilliantly unique... Get ready for TSUNAMI at the #BO. #Kalki2898ADReview

Director #NagAshwin conjures up a world that combines several breathtaking episodes with visual brilliance... His interpretation of the good versus bad saga - garnished with stunning VFX - is sure to leave you awestruck... Would like to make a special mention of the action between #AmitabhBachchan and #Prabhas. It's mind-boggling.

#Prabhas - the star-performer - is electrifying... #AmitabhBachchan is remarkable, while  #KamalHaasan is outstanding... Watching the accomplished veterans is an experience that cannot be described in mere words... #DeepikaPadukone is splendid, navigating her part with authority and elan... #DishaPatani is wasted.

#Kalki2898AD boasts of some cameos as well.

Any hiccups? Yes, of course... #Kalki2898AD deserves a better soundtrack. The songs - atleast the ones in #Hindi - don't stay with you... Also, portions in the first hour appear stretched [at times] and lack the much-needed punch... The outstanding second hour, thankfully, compensates for the shortcomings.

To sum up, #Kalki2898AD is a must-watch for...
Star power on display
Solid content [penultimate 35 minutes are awesome]
Dazzling VFX
The courage to dream and deliver a king-sized entertainer. GO FOR IT!"

According to Sacnilk, the film is expected to reach Rs 200 crore on its opening day. The film has already garnered around Rs 21.17 crore (India nett) on its first day across all languages.
