One thing you must have noticed about period films in Bollywood is that they are expensive to make. The reason being the sets that they need to build and the costumes come from another world. Other than having a high budget, period films also have a hard time at the box office. So far, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has managed to make his films look like money well-spent for his producers (Sajid Nadiadwala).
Today, the teaser of ‘Kalank’ was launched. It stars Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Madhuri Dixit.
First, take a look:
Isn’t it too presumptions to say the beginning looked like a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film?
Madhuri Dixit looks so nice in the teaser, but her appearance was just to short. If you remember, Sridevi was supposed to do this role and when she suddenly passed away, Karan Johar approached Madhuri to be in this film. Now, we are wondering how Sridevi would have been. Nevertheless, Madhuri is fine too. And, she looks good too!
If you also remember, there were dozens of blind items then about Sanjay Dutt being apprehensive about working with Madhuri again. According to him, he has been with more than 350 women so why should one bother him? Oh wait, now we remember. Is it because she dumped him?
Aditya and Sonakshi look nice in the trailer. It seems they are paired together romantically in the film, but ARK is forced to be with Alia
like Ranbir Kapoor.
The biggest surprise of ‘Kalank’ is going to be Alia Bhatt. Note how we say “is going to be” because she does not look like the kind of actress, who can blend in a period film. Neither does Varun. So the test is going to be whether or not they can make it work.
Anyways, Sanjay at the teaser launch looked like he had rather be anywhere else than there. Also, why does he look like a retired uncle ready to go on a bike ride vacation touring the country?
Also at the event was someone else, who would rather be anywhere but there: Aditya Roy Kapur. He looks like he just woke up, put on his sherwani and took a grab to this launch. But he still looks handsome, though. Somehow the quiet ones look better than the childish ones!
At the launch, Alia and Varun’s banter appear quite friendly and childish. They were being friendly with each other and just teasing one another. These two made the teaser launch look like a family event happening, where Madhuri and Sanjay are the elders, Aditya and Sonakshi are first siblings, Alia and Varun looked like the youngest/spoil brats in the family.
This is only a teaser, let’s wait until the trailer releases to know more ‘Kalank’.
So, enough about us.
How did YOU find ‘Kalank’?
