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

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

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

Has Stunning Visuals – But A Boring Story ... Full Review
