Ratings:.2/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand  Site: News18

For all its picture-perfect imagery and gorgeous lighting, the terrific dancing by both Alia Bhatt and especially Madhuri Dixit, and for all the beauty poured into every frame, the film ultimately comes off stuffy and over-crowded. It’s too ‘designed’ and leaves very little room for the characters to breathe.Just shy of three hours Kalank is ultimately tiring and heartbreaking even. You can see the talent on screen. If only there was a sharper script to harness it. I’m going with two out of five.

Ratings:.2/5 Review By: Taran Adarsh  Site: Twitter

Kalank has unmistakable contemporary resonance because it celebrates the transformative power of love in the time of rampant hatred. The film is worth a viewing not only for what it says, but also for how it packages its pacifist statement.

Ratings:.3/5 Review By: Anupama Chopra  Site:Filmcompanion

Kalank is a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, not directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Director Abhishek Varman is a good disciple. He has taken the signature Bhansali tropes and reworked them into a tangled tale set in 1940s India. Kalank is driven by aesthetics and heightened emotion. Beautiful people in exquisite clothes suffer in soft lighting. Like Bhansali, Abhishek creates an operatic fantasy filled with staggering sets, swirling fabric and heartache. Let me warn you – this film is not for everyone. To enjoy it, you must wholly suspend disbelief. You can’t question the lack of realism or narrative logic or historical authenticity. This is Abhishek’s world. You can only surrender to it.

Ratings:. Review By: Komal Nahta  Site:Zee ETC Bollywood Business

Abhishek Varman’s direction is fairly good but it also has some glaring shortcomings. He ought to have made a far crisper film. Secondly, he should have made the drama look more believable. In the present form, the scenes don’t create the desired impact.On the whole, Kalank will be liked by women and classes but not by the menfolk and masses. The youth will mostly reject the drama. Considering the huge cast and cost, it will do just about ordinary business at the box-office, thanks in no small measure to lack of Hindi film opposition for the next two weeks

Ratings:.1.5/5 Review By: Shubhra  Site:Indian Express

Kalank doesn’t really lift off the screen. The whole feels like a giant set, stately and ponderous and minus impact; the characters all costumed and perfumed and largely life-less, sparking only in bits and pieces. As a character says, two-thirds into the film, ‘yeh kissa yahin nipat jaata’. That would have been the best thing.

Ratings:.2/5 Review By: Hungama  Site: Bollywood Hungama

On the whole, KALANK is a visual spectacle that lacks soul and falters big time on account of its writing, length as well as music. At the box office, the film will suffer due to negative word of mouth and therefore the collections will drop after the initial euphoria subsides. DISAPPOINTING!

Ratings:.3/5 Review By: Rachit Gupta  Site: Times Of India

An epic love saga based during the 1940s has so much scope for visual detailing and finesse. While Kalank scales up the production in every aspect, at times, the world that it recreates looks a little too plush and away from reality. The film features arresting frames full of grand visuals captured by cinematographer Binod Pradhan and the music by Pritam has stand out songs like Ghar More Pardesiya and the Kalank title track. At 2 hours and 48 minutes, with a tighter edit the story could have wrapped up much sooner though. Kalank is a true labour of love that tells you a story laced with beautiful moments that will tug at your heartstrings.
