 Even as you continue to watch the film patiently, beyond a point, it’s nothing to write home about. You eventually sum up your thoughts on the film by borrowing the film’s expletive-laden dialogue —, ‘experimental ke naam pe chu*****’?

 What would you do if you are faced with some terrible news? If you are Saif Ali Khan’s buttoned-down character in Kalaakaandi, you gulp down something small and red, and get slung out into the night. Kalaakaandi is a Marathi term for ‘mayhem’ (no, it has nothing to do with the sweet ‘kalaakand’), but there’s not enough of it, resulting in the film being more a no-stakes stroll, rather than a breathless roller-coaster. You know that ‘iss raat ki subah ho jayegi’.

 The film is primarily in English, with only two underworld underlings conversing in street-level Hindi peppered liberally with expletives. It is clear that Verma is fascinated by mavericks and misfits. But armed with the quality of his writing, he turns the freaky, freewheeling, fizzy Kaalakaandi into a human drama that explores life’s surprises, love, mortality, greed and betrayal. 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.

 Delhi Belly’s writer Akshat Verma levelled up to direct this one. He also has penned the script for Kaalakaandi and I must say he must be high on the same thing he was writing about. The story could’ve been on the Delhi Belly only if it had some purpose in it. There’s so much happening on screen yet you think why isn’t the story moving forward. I so wanted to like this movie and there are some mind-blowing moments in the film but you can count them on fingers.Kaalakaandi is just about Saif Ali Khan’s and his amazing performance as a recently turned stoner. Akshat impresses with his wild imagination but unfortunately when a film is bad not the biggest of the superstars can save it. Two stars!
