Kalank Weekend Box-Office Collection: A Happy Easter Sunday For Karan Johar’s Period Drama!
Kalank, which hit theatres midweek on April 17, had a joyful Sunday. The film has minted Rs 11.63 crore on Easter, thus totalling to Rs 66.03 crore over the weekend. Karan Johar and Team Kalank- Alia Bhatt-Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha-Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt must be surely celebrating the figures.


Talking about the reviews of the film, well, it has been a mix of good and average. While some are finding it quite a number, others feel there are many loopholes in direction.

I rated the film 3 stars. While the story was too predictable and there was a slack in the direction at some points, I appreciate Varun and Alia's chemistry, especially in the last scene. What I missed was the unpredictability in the story. When you have such a big cast staring at you, one is bound to expect a lot of twists and turns like in K3G, KHNH, K2H2 and KANK which take you by surprise. Sadly, that is missing here, perhaps because Abhishek Varman (director) rolls out the story in a very step-by-step way. Visually a treat packed with strong performances from most actors. The climax scene, in particular, will remain in your memory for a long time. It is patiently and beautifully shot, you feel for the characters and Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt excel in that frame.

With Kalank already racing fast to touch the 100 crore mark, let’s see if it manages to do so before Avengers: Endgame hits screens on April 26.
