Kalank memes are all over the internet and why not, the much-awaited-movie of 2019 has turned out to be a huge disappointment. Dharma Productions' Kalank starring Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt has become the talk of the town because of its grandeur in terms of sets and costumes. However, Abhishek Varman's directorial is being criticised for lack of freshness and old story. Though the film has opened to Rs 21 crore at the box office, the negative word-of-mouth is likely to affect its business.
Kalank is also ranking low on IMDb with the rating of 2.6 so far. We all know that internet is an amusing place, hence, soon after the first-day-first-show, people started pouring out their reviews in funny way possible. Twitter got flooded with Kalank memes which will leave you laughing out loud. In case, you are confused whether to watch Kalank or not, these memes might prove to be of some help.

The aesthetics in Kalank lifts the film along with the cinematography by Binod Pradhan. The magnificent sets, the colours, chandeliers, the locations-everything just soothes your eyes. Another factor which makes you watch the film till the end is Varun and Alia's crackling jodi. Undoubtedly, they looked good together and lit the screen with their presence. Talking about the performances, Alia is clearly the winner in this case as we get into the story with her perspective. Her honest act is complemented well by Varun who is mostly engaging. Sonakshi Sinha's Satya will remind you of Lootera's Pakhi. She manages to leave an impact with limited screen time. Aditya Roy Kapur wears one expression throughout the film. Characters indulge in a lot of dialogue-baazi but only a couple of them are worth remembering.
To summarise, Kalank is a wasted opportunity. Massive budget and crowd-puller actors couldn't be the saviour as the film lacks uniqueness and has ample of melodrama. However, seeing Alia and Varun together on the screen does give a bit of relief. Read full review of Kalank here.
