However, many Twitterati has been disappointed by the film. Criticising the high budget film, one user wrote, “At Morning Show of Movie #Kalank. #KalankReview Simply boring and repetitive story of early 90, wrapped in decorative KJ type filmy Sets and locations in the current golden era of experimented story oriented bollywood. @karanjohar @DharmaMovies.” While the other wrote, “#KalankReview has given me faith in India’s choice. No crap big budget Karan Johar movie can fool us in this generation of Social Media. Kalank is another Kalank on KJos production career.”
