- The Abhishek Verman directed film is set in 1945
- Twitter thinks that Kalank has major Baahubali vibes
- "Baahubali + Devdas + Padmaavat = Kalank" read several tweets
The Kalank teaser released on Tuesday and took us back by several years with its grand and majestic glimpses of the drama that is set in the pre-independence era of 1945. Now, Twitter is of the opinion that Kalank appears to be inspired by the grandeur and larger-than-life make of Baahubali and those who have watched the teaser, can't completely disagree. "Bollywood's Baahubali," tweeted one user while another added: "Wow amazing visuals. Especially the last scene with raavan. This visuals can directly compete with Baahubali." Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, which is producing Kalank, was in charge of distributing the Hindi version of the Baahubali series of films.
Well, another section of Twitter thinks not only Baahubali, but Kalank also draws inspiration from period films such as "Padmaavat", Bajirao Mastani and Devdas. "Baahubali + Devdas + Padmaavat = Kalank," read one tweet while another added: "A mixture of "Padmaavat", Bajirao Mastani and Baahubali... looking forward to the film."
Here's just a glimpse of Twitter's reaction to the Kalank teaser.
