It's interval and #Kalank is a brilliant film till here. Varun @Varun_dvn is at his best and looking killer. Alia @aliaa08 is brilliant and matchless like always. Director is in full control of each and every moment. Each line and each dialogue is the very best-Kamaal R Khan, Actor
The movie takes back audience to pre-independence era during 1945 when the country is at the verge of partition. Apart from the love story of the main protagonists, 'Kalank' also highlights on love that is lost during the India-Pakistan partition. 'Kalank' was made at a budget of Rs 80 crore but box-office reports highlight that the movie might not do well in the coming days due to its negative reviews.
'Kalank' was directed by Abhishek Varman, and is scripted by Hussain Dalal.
"#Kalank is the first movie that I have walked out of. On a star based rating, I would give this movie a blackhole, tweeted Amit Tandon, Stand up Comedian and Writer.
