Performance: Dr Rajasekhar surprised everyone by his performance in PSV Garuda Vega, where he played an NIA officer. But in Kalki, he won the millions of heart with his top notch performance. Nandita Shweta in the role of a Muslim girl, is good. Adah Sharma plays Dr Padma, Kalki’s ex-girlfriend, has nothing much to do with the story. Ashutosh Rana holds the audiences’ attention as the antagonist. Rahul Ramakrishna keeps the film engaging with his comic timing. Siddhu Jonnalagadda, Charandeep and Shatru justify with their roles. Rest of the cast performed accordingly.
Technical: BGM by Sharvan Bharadwaj and camera angles by Dasaradhi Shivendra are highlighted. Cinematography are fantastic and the movie has some fantastic visuals. He captures the colorful visuals of village locals very well, which is visual treat. A Narasimha temple plays a key role in Kalki. The art director deserves a mention. The storyline of Kalki is interesting and impressive. Prasanth Varma handled the story and scenes very well. Dialogues are meaningful and it add impact to the scenes. The production values are superb.
Analysis: Kalki is worth watching on the big screen this weekend. The director Prasanth Varma tries his best to build a mythology around the protagonist since he is named Kalki, the 10th avatar of Vishnu. There are plenty of references to dharma, karma, and reincarnation in this investigative drama Kalki.
