The Abhishek Verman directed multi starrer film Kalank released on the 17th April. A mid week release for the Good Friday and Easter holidays, the film was released on 5300 theatres worldwide making it the largest release of 2019 yet.
The film is a period drama set in 1945 India has Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur,Sonakshi Sinha, as well as the veterans Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt. The film showcases love in the times of turmoil, at a time when societal prejudice is at its peak. With magnum opus sets and stunning costume design, Kalank is a treat to the eyes as well as ears with Pritam back in form composing the melodious Ghar More Pardesiya and Tabaah Ho Gaye to party numbers like Aira Gaira and First Class.The acting by the cast is praiseworthy.But several aspects of it,mainly its duration, earned itself criticism of many. The movie at 2 hour 50 minutes feels way too long. The storyline is not that intense to engage the audience for that long a time. But the overall response of movie goers and the critics as well has mostly been tilted towards the negative.As such even though it had a successful opening and the advantage of a holiday release, the overall collection at the end of six days is not great.
When asked about her thoughts on the negative reviews of the critics and the audience for Kalank,Alia Bhatt says,“We are in a creative industry, and everybody tries to put their best foot forward. In whatever we do, we give our best. At times, it turns out good, and at times, it doesn’t. And that’s when we learn, pick up the pieces and move on. It is not always sunshine. At times, it rains too. It is a learning experience for everybody.” Well, for her this is the first time since Shaandaar that her film received heavy criticism.
For Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur, this could have been a turning point since neither of them delivered a hit of late. Sonakshi Sinha says it is her bad luck that the last couple of films didn’t do well.
Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Karan Johar and Fox Star Studios with a whooping budget of Rs 150 crore,the film crossed Rs 20 crores on the very first day but has failed to keep the level up since with only managing to cross Rs 70 crore in six days.

How would you react if you realise a certain Mr Perfectionist of Bollywood is sitting right next to you in the flight?! Yes, Aamir Khan travelled in the economy class instead of the business class on a domestic flight, much to the surprise of his fellow passengers.

Sitting quietly at the window seat,Khan is seen dressed casually and sporting a light blue cap and his signature spectacles.Most fans posted the video and applauded him for his simplicity.
