Film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted saying, “#Kalank is clearly underperforming... Dips on Day 4 [Sat]... Trending is weak, so big biz on Day 5 [Sun] is ruled out... Wed 21.60 cr, Thu 11.45 cr, Fri 11.60 cr, Sat 9.75 cr. Total: ₹ 54.40 cr. India biz.”
Adarsh however points out that the movie has a strong base in the international market, with overall collection of Rs 27.43 crore.
Before the release of Kalank, Adarsh gave a two star with rating. He said, “Doesn’t live up to the expectations... Writing, music, length play spoilsport... Few dramatic portions work... Second half engaging in parts... Good climax... Varun, Alia, Madhuri, Aditya, Kunal Kemmu top notch. #KalankReview.” The collections reflects that disappointing rating.
The plot of the story revolves around a complicated love story going way back to 1945. It’s a sad saga where a girl Roop played by Alia Bhatt is attracted to Zafar acted by Varun Dhawan.
