Newly released movie Kalank has failed to impress people and critics who have expressed grim reviews after the first show of the movie on an opening day. The film could not live up to the expectation of the audiences.
The promotional campaigns of the movie had set the high bar which unfortunately did not match up to the expectations of the people. Since then netizens have been sharing a meme on Twitter to mock the Karan Johar’s production movie.
#Kalank is Karan Joharish melodrama with no reality, no depth, but much glamour and much glycerine.

Doesn’t live up to the expectations… Writing, music, length play spoilsport… Few dramatic portions work… Second half engaging in parts… Good climax… Varun, Alia, Madhuri, Aditya, Kunal Kemmu top notch. #KalankReview pic.twitter.com/rJgyNi3Ain

According to the audience, the plot of the story lacked soul. Earlier, Bollywood veteran actor Sanjay Dutt had stated that he signed ‘Kalank’ because of his emotional connection with Pakistan.
Kalank’ is a periodic film that is set in the pre-partition times. Dutt’s character in the movie is Balraj who migrates to India from Pakistan. Sanjay Dutt said that Balraj was the real name of his father, who was popularly known as Sunil Dutt while he also migrated to India from Pakistan.
The period movie ‘Kalank’ stars Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, and Aditya Roy Kapoor.
Earlier, Alia Bhatt who is playing Roop in the movie had stated that she took the inspiration from the character of ‘Kashaf’ played by Sanam Saeed in the Pakistani drama serial ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai’. She stated ‘the character of the girl Kashaf played by Sanam Saeed in the show is very much how Roop will deal with the situation’.
