The teaser of the exceptionally foreseen period drama Kalank hit the web on Tuesday, and netizens were overwhelmed by the amazing frames, staggering ensembles, mind-blowing exhibitions, and the eerie mood melodies.
And exactly as soon as the teaser was released to the media, it created a massive buzz across social media platforms. Kalank stars Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit and Sonakshi Sinha in the main roles.
Moreover, post-release, the movie was being contrasted with the generally grand Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s films. Just like Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s films, Kalank too has a glorious ambiance and it is surely a visual treat.
Kalank is “the story of turbulent relationships and eternal love set in the 1940s,” as stated by the director Karan Johar himself. Not many know that Kalank was actually supposed to be directed by Karan’s father, but never saw the light of day.
In fact, a decade and a half ago, the period drama had even begun pre-production. However, it ended up getting shelved. However, despite being the most anticipated movie of recent times, Kalank has fallen victim to a rather hilarious controversy.
After the teaser hit the web, various netizens on Twitter started speculating that the theme score for the period drama had been blatantly copied from the hit superhero TV Show ‘The Flash’ “Ye Kalank Teaser me The Flash ka BGM daal Diya hai Indian version Bana Kar” wrote one user.

Another user added, “Aree mai aadhe ghante se soch raha tha ki kahi suna hua hai aisa,” A third hilariously joked, “Subliminal message to run out of the halls as fast as possible,” Even film critic Raja Sen has similar opinions about the music used in the trailer.

He wrote, “The #KalankTeaser has ripped off the theme music from #TheFlash. How quintessentially Bollywood to even slow down the music for the world’s fastest man,” Now the only thing that we care about is that has Karan Johar actually copied DC, you decide!
