Kalank - A stain on Dharma

Updated: Apr 9, 2020

Kalank - naam hi kaafi hai. Succinctly sums up one’s feelings after watching. Story, acting, dialogue delivery, any kind of soul to the movie - ye sab chhod ke, as the song says, baaki sab first class hai. The sets reek of artificiality. There’s not a single moment of levity in a nearly 3 hour movie where everyone speaks in the same slow, measured monotone. The usually reliable Alia has been reduced to a whimpering wreck. And Varun, Sanjay, Aditya, Sonakshi all walk thru their parts in a zombie like stupor. For old time’s sake, Madhuri still has it as far as dancing goes but even she succumbs under the weight of a movie that tries to be epic but ends up an epic bore.

I agree totally. Worst was the ending clip (had to force myself to watch that far) was she going to go with him or with him. And the funny thing was - it did not matter! Just decide and end it!
