After creating a huge buzz for the past few months, the film Kalank that has been produced by Karan Johar, finally hit screens on Wednesday. However, many were disappointed by the love story starring Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt that is set in 1945, pre-Independence India. Early reviews of the film on Twitter resulted in #KalankReview dominating trends, it wasn’t for the reasons the makers of the period drama would have liked.
Many said that the plot and story were too predictable. Though the songs are peppy, dialogues are meme-worthy and the film features elaborate sets and gorgeous costumes, many were of the opinion that the film wasn’t worth watching.
Soon, many on Twitter began trolling the film’s actors and producer using memes based on the film itself.
Bollywood is improving day by day now they are telling us the review of movie in title itself. First Zero and now Kalank #KalankReview
