Abhishek Varman’s Kalank starring Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt is one highly anticipated Bollywood film of this year. Everything about this film is grand. Be it the film’s spectacular cast, its premise that will take us straight to the ’40s and the character posters that revealed the men and women of Kalank. The makers now dropped the teaser that features the entire cast and their significance in the film. Apart from the film’s ensemble cast, the highlight of Kalank teaser was, undoubtedly, its high-on-grandeur visuals and the ear-pleasing background music.
It won’t be wrong to say that the Kalank teaser has left all of us wanting for more. From Varun Dhawan’s fierce look as Zafar to an intense Aditya Roy Kapur as Dev Chaudhry and Sanjay Dutt as the powerful Balraj Chaudhry. Let’s not miss the stunning Alia Bhatt as Roop, an elegant Sonakshi Sinha as Satya and Madhuri Dixit’s enticing glimpse as Bahaar Begum… we have loved it all! But, here we bring to you the five things that took our special attention and got us screaming WOW!
1. Captivating Background Score
They say that film works when its music is good and they aren’t wrong. Kalank seems to be on similar lines as the background score is nothing but enticing. It reminded us of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s epic compositions that can bring dead to life. If a mere glimpse of Kalank’s background music is so astonishing, imagine the hysteria that shall unfold when its music will be out. We await!
2. The premise of the film
Kalank is based in the pre-independence era of the ’40s. From what the teaser showed us, Kalank appears to revolve around a rich family, who is living with hundreds of hidden truths. We also had the glimpses of some communal tensions, which gave us the partition feels. This looked like one story where love seemed to be lost amid violence and fights. We also have Alia Bhatt who loves Varun Dhawan, but ends up marrying Aditya Roy Kapur, who is romancing Sonakshi Sinha. Well, the makers have managed to give so much with actually revealing nothing.
3. Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit’s reunion on the big screen
Who doesn’t know about Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt’s much-dramatised romantic past? After working in films like Khalnayak, Saajan and Thanedaar, the two of them were alleged to be in a relationship. However, things didn’t work out as they were planned and we couldn’t see more of them. But, with Karan Johar’s Kalank we will finally get to see them in the frame after decades. The teaser didn’t really have many scenes of them together, however, the film promises a lot of it.
4. Some of the most eye-pleasing visuals
This film just doesn’t claim to be around the ’40s but it does manage to give us a tour of that era. Abhishek Varman’s visions, its bewildering cinematography, the classic costumes; everything about the Kalank teaser is visually appealing.
5. Madhuri Dixit's dance moves
With Dhak Dhak girl in frame, how can she not be dancing? With whatever glimpses we got of Madhuri Dixit in the teaser, one can say that she is going to be dancing a lot in the film. We just can't wait!
