Movie Info

'Kalank' is an epic romantic drama of six enigmatic, esoteric and wistful characters entangled in search of love but separated by the dichotomy between the two worlds of Husnabad, a town in North India. The elite, opulent and solemn world of the Chaudhry family, and the wild, mysterious and musical underbelly of the town, Hira Mandi, clash when Roop Chaudhry encounters Zafar, a daredevil from Hira Mandi, unleashing deep-buried truths, secrets of betrayal and affairs that threaten to bring the both worlds crashing down. Set in 1945, in Pre-Independent India, 'Kalank' is the story of a vivid and ethereal world, lost when the fire of Partition engulfs the city and the country. It's the story of the shades of Reds in their lives as they yearn for hues of love while Husnabad gets soaked in the reds of violence and revenge.

Kalank offers unexpected and welcome nuance for a mainstream Bollywood film.

April 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Dialogue scenes can be static, stand-and-deliver affairs. And Mr. Varman leaves the actors at sea; when the script calls for character complexity, the result usually reads as incoherence.

April 19, 2019 | Full Review…

A superlative piece of technical craft, one that rolls off several of the year's most beauteous shots.

April 19, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A lavish but ponderous Bollywood extravaganza that springs to life during a few exuberantly over-the-top production numbers.

Bollywood historical romance falls flat; some violence.

April 3, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

So much happening in this one movie, all of it in excruciating slow-motion for an inexplicable reason...
