Meanwhile, trade experts and industry insiders told news agency PTI that the success of the Hindi version of "Kalki 2898 AD" is the lone bright spot for the Hindi film industry in a 2024 punctuated with big budget box office failures "Bade Miyan Chote Miyan", "Maidan" and "Yodha". The industry's six-month report card shows a 20-30 percent decline in business for the Hindi cinema exhibition sector. While smaller films and original ideas, such as "Laapata Ladies" ( ₹20 crore) and "Munjya" ( ₹98 crore), have made an impact, it hasn't been sufficient, reported PTI.

"Had it not been for 'Kalki 2889 AD', I would've said the first six months of 2024 are quite bad. Although 'Kalki' is not a Bollywood film, it has brought a new lease of life with its Hindi dubbed version. 'Kalki' came just to improve our report card; otherwise, it would've been full of red marks,” trade analyst Komal Nahta told PTI.
