The trailer offers tantalising glimpses into the film’s plot.

A powerful scene showcases Amitabh’s character, Ashwatthama, vowing to protect Sumati and her unborn child, even resorting to battling Prabha’s character, Bhairava. Kamal’s role as the enigmatic Supreme Yaskin is also unveiled, with the trailer hinting at his cynical view of humanity’s unchanging nature.

Beyond the characters, the trailer reveals a fascinating world-building effort. In a pre-release event video, Nag explained that Kalki 2898 AD unfolds across three distinct locations: Kasi, a resource-depleted region; Complex, a technologically advanced city with a dark secret; and Shambala, a hidden haven for rebels and refugees.

With its captivating visuals, intriguing plot, and an all-star cast, Kalki 2898 AD is poised to be a cinematic spectacle.
