Karan Johar’s ambitious project ‘Kalank‘ collected ₹ 3.25 crore net on Tuesday. This was not expected from a film which opened with over ₹21 crores on its opening day. It’s not even a week since ‘Kalank’ made it to theatres and it is having a hard time to sustain at the box office.

Even the first extended weekend couldn’t do any good for the film which is getting bad reviews from the critics and the audience. Now, trade pundits expect that the film will suffer a lot after this week, as much-awaited Hollywood film ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is going to release.

Besides ‘Kalank’, ‘Kesari’ and ‘Gully Boy’ also had extended weekends of four days with 3600 and 3350 screen counts respectively and in spite of five days long weekend and the most number of screens i.e; 4000, ‘Kalank’ earned less than both the movies.

‘Total Dhamaal’ had traditional three day weekend and released on 3700 screens, still managed to earn ₹62.40 crores in its first weekend.

The film narrates a complex love story of Roop (Alia Bhatt) and Zafar (Varun Dhawan).

The story is set a few years before India Pakistan partition, in a city called Husnabad. The small town is populated by blacksmiths, where lives the most affluent family, the “Chaudharys”. The father and son duo Dev (Aditya Roy Kapur) and Balraj (Sanjay Dutt) Chaudhary run a liberal newspaper called The Daily News. Under some unexpected circumstances, Dev is married to Roop. The relationship is just based on compromise and not love, which leads to Roop falling in love with a local blacksmith Zafar.

The love which is blossoming between Roop and Zafar will never be accepted in the society to which they belong but what is love if not complex?


  1. I think this movie hasn’t done as expected. Despite there being so many lovely actors and actresses, i think the movie suffered from a pretty poor story.
