Raja Sen | Hindustan Times: 2.5/5
Varun Dhawan and Madhuri Dixit can’t salvage this beautiful, hollow film ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Times of India: 3/5
Kalank is a true labour of love that tells you a story laced with beautiful moments that will tug at your heartstrings ... Full Review

Anindita Paul | Mumbai Mirror: 2.5/5
At the end of the day, Kalank is a sensory delight. It’s hard to not be awed by the grandeur of the film, the lavish couture on display and the easy-on-the-eyes star cast ... Full Review

Rekha Khan | Navbharat Times: 2.5/5
क्यों देखें: अभिनय, भव्य, खूबसूरत सेट्स और कॉस्ट्यूम के लिए फिल्म देखी जा सकती है। ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1.5/5
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 ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 2/5
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 ... Full Review

Priyanka Sinha Jha | News18: 3/5
An Extravagant Costume Drama for Millennials. Varun Dhawan gets better with every film, and in Kalank, he again surpasses expectations, as does Alia Bhatt ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3/5
The younger actors pale in comparison to Madhuri's blinding glow. Varun Dhawan stars in by far the meatiest role of his career ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 2/5
KALANK is a visual spectacle that lacks soul and falters big time on account of its writing, length as well as music ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 1/5
Lousy screenplay can't make up to good visuals! It doesn't matter how good you look if you are saying shit ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2.5/5
You won't be able to look away. But... you won't feel anything either ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 1.75/5
There is nothing pretty though about the lack of nuance in its portrayal of Hindu-Muslim equations and the lasting image from this film of the ferocious Muslim who destroys not just the other but also his own in pursuit of a cause ... Full Review

Ananya Bhattacharya | India Today: 2/5
Kalank uses the idea of Alia being 'giraftaar' in her marriage. That idea holds true for anyone watching Kalank too. You feel like a prisoner. Exercise your choice. Watch Kalank ONLY if you don't have any ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 2.5/5
Has Stunning Visuals – But A Boring Story ... Full Review

Bhavna Agarwal | PinkVilla: 2/5
Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt starrer is predictably slow paced and soulless ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 2/5
An attempt to map a love triangle onto the tragedy of the Partition goes awry ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 2/5
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 ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 3/5
The Artificiality Works Because The Emotions Feel Real. The film is an operatic fantasy filled with staggering sets, swirling fabric and heartache, but to enjoy it, you must wholly suspend disbelief ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 2/5
visual grandeur takes over plotline. Kalank is a strange film that leaves one’s head in an odd whirl ... Full Review

Mike McCahill | The Guardian: 3/5
Abhishek Varman spares no expense in this tale of forbidden love – but heavenly visuals are marred by clunky storytelling ... Full Review

Meetu | Wogma: 3/5
A reasonably complex plot for a love triangle spoiled by shifting focus from the details in the story to reasonably well-done grandeur and opulence. Results in a play-like set-up without due regard for nuance ... Full Review

Ankur Pathak | The Huffington Post: 2.5/5
An Uninspiring Story With Too Much 'Mohabbat', Not Enough 'Mehnat'. The Varun Dhawan-Alia Bhatt starrer is occasionally moving but mostly underwhelming ... Full Review

Manisha Lakhe | Now Running: 2.5/5
I'm a sucker for romance and the songs of this film stick in your head. It's a good thing, because nothing else makes you feel good ... Full Review

Mayur Sanap | Deccan Chronicle: 1.5/5
Despite a stellar cast, stunning cinematography and fabulous sets the film never gels, and the story creeps along ... Full Review

Priyanka Bhadani | The Week: 2/5
Fine performances alone can't hold together this unoriginal affair 'Kalank' looks like a mishmash of many Hindi films over the years ... Full Review

Behind Woods: 2/5
Kalank is visually grand, but a passable and overlong film that does not live up to the expectations ... Full Review

Ajit Duara | Open Magazine: 2/5
It is a multi-star movie, with actors trapped into delivering theatrical lines that make their personas unrecognisable ... Full Review

Lisa Tsering | The Hollywood Reporter: 3/5
An arresting, visually sumptuous coming-of-age tale ... Full Review
