Taran Adarsh, a trade analyst, call it a "disappointment."He shared, "Kalank doesn’t live up to the expectations. Writing, music, length play spoilsport. Few dramatic portions work. Second half engaging in parts. Good climax. Varun, Alia, Madhuri, Aditya, Kunal Kemmu top notch."



Another user Amit Tandon wrote, "Kalank is the first movie that I have walked out of. On a star-based rating, I would give this movie a blackhole."

Sumit Kadel called film a visual treat but said it lacked soul. "Kalank is a GARGANTUAN  DISAPPOINTMENT. The film is a visual spectacle which lacks soul and has odious screenplay, lousy writing, confused characterisation. Director and writers had no clue about what is happening in the film and why. Kalank is a tortuous affair," he tweeted.



"Absolute waste of time. Please don't watch. Only thing to see is the glamour and nice dresses of Alia. Movie is with full of errors, bit of story, no depth," a user, Isha Shree, wrote.
