Our Opening Day Prediction
‘Kalank’ is a period drama and one of the most anticipated films. The movie is directed by Abhishek Verman. It is an epic story of turbulent relationships and eternal love. It was set in the backdrop of India’s partition. The family has its hidden truth and starts to come to light as communal tension rises and partition nears. The trailer looks good and interesting. Here are some factors that we believe will work in its favour.
The films from Dharma are larger than life that has its own charm and purity that attract the audience. Wherein, ‘Kalank’ has its back-story which was originally conceptualised by Karan Johar and Late Yash Johar over a decade ago. Yash Johar had personally visited Pakistan to pick up the shades from it, in order to recreate Pakistan for the shoot. Late Yash Johar had conducted research that goes beyond borders. Karan Johar has put his heart in making of the film, as it was the last film he worked on with his father before Yash Johar left us. Usually, a brand value is attached to a film if it comes from this banner, which makes one and all look forward to it.
Period dramas have always been an experience to watch. It reflects the grand and grim of Asian history. These cinematic masterpieces take viewers back to a range of eras – Mughal-era, colonial era, Modern history and more. Regardless of the setting, they manage to give us some of the most stunning visuals that have left a lasting impression. Not to forget the most beautiful costumes and situational musical sequences.
