Salman Khan & Katrina Kaif’s Bharat Trailer is Out
One of the most sought-after and successful jodi of Bollywood, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif is back on-screen once again with Bharat.
Bharat is an official remake of Ode to My Father, a 2014 South Korean blockbuster. It traces the journey of a man and a country together. The film follows Salman Khan’s character’s journey from the age of 18 to 70, showing the history of India through the life of an ordinary man named Bharat (played by Salman). The three-minute trailer shows Salman in five different looks, from a motorcycle stuntman to an employee in an oil-mining company and then as a navy officer.
Apart from Salman and Katrina, the film also features Jackie Shroff as Salman’s father and comedian Sunil Grover as his best friend. The film also stars Disha Patani, Tabu, Sunil Grover, Satish Kaushik, Nora Fatehi, and Shashank Arora. Ali Abbas Zafar and Varun V. Sharma have written screenplay and dialogues of the film. Bharat’s music has been composed by Vishal-Shekhar and Irshad Kamil has penned its lyrics. Helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, who has earlier directed the Salman and Katrina in Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), Bharat will hit the screens on June 5, 2019.
Abhishek Varman’s Kalank is a lavish period drama set in the 1940s. Pre-independent India provides a perfect background to this visually stunning movie featuring an ensemble cast. The cast includes Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Rao Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt in the lead roles.
Kalank is set in the time of partition, in a fictional town on the outskirts of Lahore called Husnabad. At the center of the story are Roop (Alia) and Zafar (Varun). Zafar is a blacksmith and the illegitimate son of a courtesan Bahar Begum (Madhuri) and rich aristocrat Balraj Chaudhury (Sanjay). Roop is the second wife of Balraj Chaudhury’s legitimate son Dev (Aditya). When Roop finds herself attracted to Zafar, what begins as a revenge plot ends up becoming a love story with disastrous consequences.
Kalank’s lavish and extravagant sets are definitely a visual treat. One look and you know that the film seems to heavily borrow a lot from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s universe of period dramas. But Kalank is let down by its tiring, over-crowded and heavily melodramatic script. Not just the songs, everything from its action to the dialogues looks choreographed. Even though it has a talented multi-star cast to lift it up, Kalank’s story leaves little to the imagination.
