    This Saif Ali Khan starrer is not a masterpiece to be kept in the Oscars library, but it is f****** contemporary.

  • Kaalakaandi doesn’t always provide it, but there’s enough intrigue to play along.

  • 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.

    …if you like your cinema experimental and edgy, give this one a try.  

  • It remains a lot like Delhi Belly instead, the (Akshat Verma) writer of which makes his directorial debut here. He’s on the ball for sure. Is it as good as Delhi Belly? As a script? Possibly. As a film, I felt it lacks rhythm, with too much being force-fed to suit the timeline of one never-ending night in Bombay, even if that’s the genre. The end might make you go, “Eh?” But through it all, you’re more likely to go, “Hah!” So nah, I’m not complaining at all.

    Kaalakaandi assumes  many identities and  eventually abandons  all  of them for that one core truth that controls our destiny.

    Death .This film  dares to laugh in  face  of  mortality.That’s  what makes it so  brave  and unique.

    Kaalakaandi is a great ride. At an hour and fifty minutes long, the film tells its story effectively and without any side-tracking. Sure, there are some expectations in the second half that are not met – like the sudden excitement when you see Khan in a Birdman-like costume, only to see it lead nowhere – but that would be akin to nitpicking just for the heck of it.
