The earnings in the last four days have shown a gradually decreasing trend. The film opened with big numbers on 17 April and managed to earn Rs 21.60 crore. However, with a steady decline in the next three days, the earnings on the fourth day presently stand at Rs 9.75 crore. While the film became 2019's biggest opener, there was almost a 50 percent drop on Day 2.
Barring performances from Alia and Aditya, Kalank did not seem to satisfy most critics. Some pointed out the unrealistic portrayal of 1940s India as one of the main reasons, while others blamed the cast's average acting.
Also featuring Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt, Kalank has been backed by Fox Star Studios, Sajid Nadiadwala, Hiroo Yash Johar, Karan Johar and Apoorva Mehta of Dharma Productions.

Talking about the legendary writer, the filmmaker added, "He reads the script, understands the director's vision, narrates the lyrics himself, and is extremely perceptive about whether you like it or not."
