Karan Johar’s most ambitious project ‘Kalank‘ which released this week on Wednesday emerged as the biggest opener of the year. The film surpassed the first day earning of Akshay Kumar’s ‘Kesari’ and has become the biggest opener of Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt till date.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office figures of ‘Kalank’ on Twitter and wrote, “#Kalank starts with a bang… Emerges biggest opener of 2019 *so far*… Plexes terrific… Impressive cast and hype + massive screen count [4000] + #MahavirJayanti holiday have contributed to a big total… Wed ₹ 21.60 cr. India biz.”

He even shared the list of top four openers of 2019.

Not just in the home country, ‘Kalank’ did well on the first day in the overseas market also. It earned $740k (₹5.14 crores) from the global market with $270k from just North America.

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?
