Trade analysts write that Kalank has been performing better in multiplexes as compared to mass circuits.

The film stars Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit, making it one of the most highly anticipated films of the year. However, it failed to impress audience and critics alike for its storyline and also received some backlash for its portrayal of the Partition. Even the performances by most of the cast was underwhelming with critics only lauding Kapur and Bhatt's acting.

Kalank has been backed by Fox Star Studios, Sajid Nadiadwala, Hiroo Yash Johar, Karan Johar and Apoorva Mehta of Dharma Productions.
