Kaalakaandi tracks the story of a man (played by Saif) who is diagnosed with cancer and how he utilises his remaining days.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 3 stars out of 5 and wrote, "The multiple tales unfold in parallel arcs. It is only in the penultimate scenes and a zany final shot that the plot connects a few of the characters but only in a tenuous manner. Kaalakaandi takes a while to warm up but when it does it sets a lively pace, especially in the second half. Kaalakaandi may not be for all palates, but the film has enough spice for those in the mood for an off-the-beaten-track Bollywood experience."
Kaalakaandi released with Anurag Kashyap's Mukkabaaz and Vikram Bhatt's 1921.
Apart from Saif, Kaalakaandi also stars Deepak Dobriyal, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Sobhita Dhulipala, Amyra Dastur and Akshay Oberoi.
