2 Years of Kalank: 5 poetic style dialogues from Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan’s film that is an ode to the golden era
A period drama that hit the screens back in 2019 and managed to take us back to the golden era was Kalank. Starring Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead, Kalank was a story set in the pre-independence era when India was undivided.
The love story set in old times oozed opulence and magnificence when it released in theatres and even though it did not hit the right note at the box office due to the storyline, the 3 things that impressed fans included great music, visuals spectacle, and impeccable dialogues.
One of the strengths of the film was its dialogues. Being a period drama set in 1946, Alia and Varun’s film had to keep the dialogues in line with the time, and some of these managed to hit home. The poetic style dialogues that hit hard were aced by Alia, Varun, Madhuri, Sanjay, Sonakshi, and Aditya perfectly.
From the heartbreaking ones to the more realistic dialogues, Kalank managed to make us travel back in time with the conversations that took place between Zafar and Roop. Even the mocking between Madhuri’s character and Varun’s character was done with ‘nazakat’ and the shuddh Hindi use just elevated the performances.
The songs too of the film including Ghar More Pardesiya, Kalank, First Class, Tabaah Ho Gaye, Aira Gaira managed to impress everyone owing to the elegant style of shooting and visual spectacle they created on the big screen.
Even the dance performance by Alia in Ghar More Pardesiya and Madhuri in Tabaah Ho Gaye remains one of the finest ones on screen and fans loved every bit of it. Today, as the film completes 2 years, we decided to take you back to the dialogues that left an impact and were all about ‘nazakat and tehzeeb’ even while some of them seemed grim and sad owing to the storyline.
