The movie Kalank, released in 2019, is a romantic drama film set in the pre-Independence era of India. Directed by Abhishek Varman, the movie boasts an impressive ensemble cast, including Kiara Advani, Alia Bhatt, Kriti Sanon, Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, and Madhuri Dixit. The story of Kalank revolves around Roop (played by Alia Bhatt), a young girl from a middle-class family who is married off to Dev Chaudhry (played by Aditya Roy Kapur), a wealthy businessman from a powerful family. As she settles down into her new life in the sprawling city of Husnabad, Roop finds herself drawn to Zafar (played by Varun Dhawan), a handsome and charismatic blacksmith with a mysterious past.

Against the backdrop of rising tensions between Hindus and Muslims, the two find themselves caught up in a forbidden love affair that threatens to tear them apart. Complicating matters further is the fact that Zafar is already involved with Bahar Begum (played by Madhuri Dixit), a renowned courtesan who holds a powerful sway over the people of Husnabad.

As Roop and Zafar struggle to navigate their feelings for each other, they must also contend with the political machinations of Dev's scheming brother, Balraj (played by Sanjay Dutt), who seeks to cement his family's dominance over the region.

At its core, Kalank is a story about the complexities of love and the ways in which societal pressures and expectations can constrain our desires. The film is visually stunning, with elaborate sets and vibrant colors that transport viewers back in time to a bygone era.

The performances from the cast are also top-notch, with Alia Bhatt shining as the conflicted and passionate Roop, and Varun Dhawan bringing a brooding intensity to his portrayal of Zafar. Madhuri Dixit is mesmerizing as Bahar Begum, a captivating figure who embodies both beauty and tragedy, while Sanjay Dutt brings a menacing edge to his portrayal of Balraj.

Overall, Kalank is a well-crafted, emotionally resonant film that offers a compelling exploration of love and sacrifice in a time of societal upheaval. It is a must-watch for fans of period dramas and romance films alike.

Kalank is a 2019 drama. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.6.
