Poor Man’s Version of SLB’s Period Films: Kalank Trailer is out!!!
Have you seen it yet?
Here, check it out first:
What do you think?
First of all, it seemed they wanted to make it epic hence the loud point-hitting background score. But then Alia’s voice comes and it doesn’t quite match up with the background score.
Like, dialogue delivery and the background music don’t go hand in hand.
Think of SLB’s films’ trailers and perhaps Inception, which had quite a loud and thundering background score but it went very well with every scene and dialogue.
It’s clear that Dharma Productions want to make Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt their IT couple after Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. But their pairing just doesn’t work in this film. It could also be an overdose of them together.
Point is, they both don’t suit the period film setting. Alia is trying hard while Varun overacts. Both of them are probably thinking they should do their best in this film and it shows.
Basically, this trailer could have been much more than what they released. It’s just loud background score, bad dialogue delivery from its main leads plus it doesn’t connect.
It’s an empty trailer with no soul. It’s a wannabe film.
There’s a reason why SLB is a tough director on the sets. He wants perfection in every aspect of his film-making! His films take a really long time to shoot and when you see it, you see the hard work: the blood, sweat and big money. Plus, during the shooting of his films, his lead actors can’t really afford to go and sign other films due to their unique look of their characters. He wants the actors to stay in character until shooting and post-production is fully done.
Which was why we knew Kalank would not be up to mark with SLB’s films. For starters, they shot it quite fast. Its cast was busy working on other films while shooting for this film. None of the actors have a particular look, they look the same onscreen and offscreen. OK, maybe Sanju baba. That’s why, they don’t look like they have lived their character. They look like themselves playing their characters! If that makes any sense…
By the way, people are saying it’s Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna set in period times.
Now we know why KJo didn’t physically direct this film, he was scared of the backlash he would get from copying SLB. So technically, he’s just letting his director take the blame and fall!
Aditya Roy Kapur – Is there a more handsome hero in Bollywood right now?
Sonakshi Sinha – Why did she waste all these years doing silly flower pot roles when she has actual potential?
They look really good together!
Alia is playing his second wife in the film while Sonakshi is the first. Must be KebabJo’s idea!
That last scene in the train, we would have advised ARK to just let Aloo go. Just let go of her hand, KebabJo will catch it.
Meanwhile, we will wait for him at the next stop with a razor, soap, towel, detergent and hand sanitizer!
This scene would have been even more epic if Sonakshi was holding ARK’s hand. But then, it seems like at this point in the film Sona left to go shoot Dabaang 3 with Bhai!
The special appearances:
Madhuri Dixit – In a blink and miss role. She looks like she never left the ‘Devdas’ sets!
Kriti Sanon – In an item song presumably titled Second Class.
Sanjay Dutt – In a blink and miss role, like he is reminiscing about his Sanju days.
Like we said before, Kalank looks expensive!
Now, will it manage to recover its budget?
Probably Sajid Nadiadwala will sell its satellite rights at a high price and KJo will do his part with his extensive and excessive marketing tactics.
P.S. What’s going on with the way Varun runs? He runs like he’s about to fall! Like the way the British PM walks!
