In his latest tweet, Taran Adarsh stated that the film's performance experienced a "dip" at the box office on the fourth day and revealed that the film is "underperforming." In his tweet, he also added that the film has not been trending much and that it might affect its performance at the box office on Sunday as well. Sharing the film's box office performance so far, Taran Adarsh tweeted on Sunday: "Kalank is clearly underperforming... Dips on Day 4 [Sat]... Trending is weak, so big biz on Day 5 [Sun] is ruled out... Wed 21.60 cr, Thu 11.45 cr, Fri 11.60 cr, Sat 9.75 cr. Total: Rs 54.40 cr. India biz."

Kalank opened to mixed reviews on Friday. Film critic Saibal Chaterjee, in his review for NDTV, gave the film 3 stars of five and wrote: "Opulent sets, visual flourishes, intense emotions, a luminous Madhuri Dixit who still emotes and pirouettes like a dream and a stunningly on-top-of-her-game Alia Bhatt make Kalank a near-spotless movie experience."
Kalank is a period drama set in the 1940s. The film's impressive star cast includes Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt.
