Karan Johar's magnum opus ' Kalank' opened today and while the movie looked like a beautiful, aesthetic (but heavily inspired from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's works) watch, the majority of the reaction from the audience today has been quite 'meh'.
Kalank review -
story - fully bakwas,
screenplay - dull,
music - routine
Overall not worth watching @karanjohar â star...
#Kalank Review : Headache Guranteed.. So instead of buying popcorn.. Buy Amrutanjan or Zandu Balm.. Hackneyed Plot.. Worse acting.. @aliaa08 Constipated... @MadhuriDixit Old Haggered... @duttsanjay Buffoon... @Varun_dvn only Body No Soul... @sonakshisinha Khaaaaamoooosshhhhhhhhh— Ganesh Mahesh (@NamoIn2019) April 16, 2019
Many are upset that the narrative was a concept stolen from SLB's style and reworked in a weird manner with a good star cast.
They tried to imitate #SLB's scale and vision and believe me they were spot on visualy but where's the writing man?.Screenplay lethargic and drowsy , waited eagerly for an engaging moment but not a single engrossing pal , while same old formula to sell .(1/2) .
Words for #Kalank #KalankReview
Kalank is a Perfect Example that High BUDGET, Multi Starcast, Massive Sets and Wide Release will nvr ensure Success, if your FILM LACK SOUL
Kalank = GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY WASTED

However, some people are loving the movie for some particular elements. A few people loved it for the cinematography and the plot, while for others, watching the beautiful Madhuri Dixit on screen was reason enough.
Jus saw #Kalank at d screening in presence of the cast. One more reason to watch it is for @MadhuriDixit
And the grace she brings to celluloid. Her scene with @duttsanjay

Don't believe the negative reviews. Kalank is like Game of Thrones and Avengers Endgame. Please watch it in theaters ð#KalankReview— Varunardo DiCaprio (@Varunardo) April 17, 2019
Nevertheless, if a good cinematic view and watching your favourite stars are good enough reasons for you to watch 'Kalank', then you should catch it soon.
