Kalank (2019) Movie Blueray Leaked on Tamilrockers. In this movie the lives of six enigmatic characters become entangled whilst in search of love, but separated by the dichotomy between the two worlds of Husnabad, a town in North India. The movie is posted in blueray having file size of 4.4GB, 7.4GB and 9.4GB.
The epic love saga, Dharma Productions has been projecting this movie as, actually remains unsuccessful in projecting it in the same light. Na thik se pyar dikha mujhe, na Kalank. Anyway, before going to the down sides, let me first put the bright sides of the film.
The Good: Kalank is a gorgeous film when it comes to its semblance. Goodness me, the detailing in set design, costumes, jewelries… everything, every inch of every frame breaths ‘perfection’. Abhishek Verman, as a director, can make Sanjay Leela Bhansali run for his money when it comes to deciding the look of the film. From its very first scene to its last one, Kalank never fails to tell us that it’s a Dharma Productions’ film. Performances, well, no complaints, at all. Everyone, starting from the starcast to supporting cast, everyone did what they were supposed to do, and they did it pretty well. A big shout out to Aditya Roy Kapoor, this guy comes across as a shallow millennial otherwise, but there is a certain depth in him, which is pretty amazing to see. I enjoyed every performance, starting from exalted Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt, to Aliaa Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha and Kunal Khemu.
But, but but… the most amazing part of this movie is, its #music. This is one department, in which it has scored 100 on 100. Right from the theme of the movie to all its songs, music of Kalak does offer more than what we already have heard online. Kudos to Pritam Chakraborty, Shreya Ghoshal, Arijjit Singh, Amitabh Bhattacharya and everyone else.
The bad: Despite all the good’s, the factors which are pulling Kalank down from being an ‘epic saga’ to a merely average movie are: The Story and Story Telling. It’s high time, film makers and production houses, should get this very clear by now, that despite all the flashy elements such as larger than life sets, (god knows where do they find such beautiful) costumes, some unforgettable dialogues, winsome music and an arduous starcast; if they do not have a good story to tell, or they don’t possess the art of story telling which can also make an otherwise mediocre story interesting; they won’t be able to sell a movie. At-least not in current times, when people are more into good content than mere good looks (read procution quality). Kalank failed me as a movie, because it failed to tell me, convince me and consume me with its story.
