Kalank Movie Review: Top notch performances and heavy dialogues covered up lazy screenplay of ‘Kalank’.

Bollywood Movie Review


Plus Points:

  • Outstanding dialogues by Hussain Dalal will make you stop at every scene
  • Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawans’ memorable performances
  • Production designing of Amrita Mahal is super se uparrr..

Minus Points:

  • Too lengthy, Total length of the film can be cut shot by 15 minutes approximate
  • Screenplay seems lazy at some points

Kalank Trailer Review/Reaction: This trailer seems dim after blockbuster teaser and all the three chartbuster songs of Kalank.

Plot: Balraj Chaudhry (Sanjay Dutt), a rich person, is owner of a Newspaper whose son Dev Chaudhry (Aditya Roy Kapur) who is returned from foreign and married to Satya Chaudhry (Sonakshi). Both Satya and Dev love each other but Satya has limited time due to cancer and wants Dev to marry another girl. Satya found Roop (Alia) for Dev but Roop wants some financial favors in returns. Roop and Dev get married but Dev clears that he only loves Satya and he just did it for her and nothing else.

Roop starts getting depressed at home and requests to learn music from Bahaar Begum (Madhuri). Chaudhrys deny her request for some background story but Roop makes them agree by hook and crook. Roop meets with Zafar (Varun Dhawan) while going to learn music and started loving him. Zafar is a Casanova and don’t understand love.

Now what happens with these two love stories of Zafar-Roop & Dev-Satya and Roop-Dev unwanted married life is the climax.

Screenplay: Kalank’s Screenplay is nice and interesting but seems weak and elongated at some points (very few).

‘Tabah Ho Gaye’ song from Kalank: Here is the first look of Madhuri Dixit.


  • As we mentioned in the PLUS POINT, Alia Bhatt has nailed it as Roop and she is looking damn beautiful.
  • Varun Dhawan as Zafar is also outstanding and looking giant.
  • Aditya Roy Kapur as Dev Chaudhry seems dull in his first 10-15 minutes but gets a grip at the character later and leave his mark.
  • Sonakshi Sinha has lesser scope and okay with her job.
  • Sanjay Dutt has extended cameo and equally fine with his job but looking awesome as Balraj Chaudhry.
  • Madhuri Dixit is very good as Bahaar Begum and nailed with the dialogue delivery
  • Kunal Khemu as Abdul is awesome and it may be a comeback for him.

Direction: Abhishek Varman’s direction is good but not excellent, there are many points where it can be better or more… That doesn’t mean its poor.

Music: Background score of Kalank is unexpectedly good and nicely made. Songs are already hit and every song has a story within which I personally feel is very intelligent move by the director.

Final Verdict: Kalank is a heavy weight film with deep conversations and some ultimate situations put for each pair but lacks in length and VFX. It will appeal to the urban audience more than rural one. Classes will love to watch.

Kalank Title Track finally out now: it was worth waiting for this masterpiece beautifully done by Arijit Singh, Amitabh Bhattacharya and Pritam.
