Movie Review: Kaalakaandi (2018)
KAALAKAANDI is the story of how people from diverse backgrounds converge in one maddening night in Mumbai. Rileen (Saif Ali Khan) finds out that he’s suffering from stomach cancer and that he has only a few days to live. Tara (Sobhita Dhulipala) is dating Zubin (Kunaal Roy Kapur) and has a flight to catch. She goes to meet Ayesha (Shenaz Treasury) as it’s her birthday. They meet in a club and sadly there is a raid by cops. Tara realises that she’ll get late for the flight thanks to the raid and subsequent investigation and makes a daring plan to escape. Waris (Deepak Dobriyal) and Amjad (Vijay Raaz) work for the dreaded gangster Raza (Asif Basra). They make a plan to get rich overnight by deceiving Raza. Angad (Akshay Oberoi) is Rileen’s brother who is getting married the same night to Neha (Amyra Dastur). He gets a call from his ex-girlfriend Selina (Amanda Rosario). She tells him that she is in Mumbai and wants to meet him immediately. Angad immediately agrees. How all these tracks make an impact on the lives of the characters that night forms the rest of the film.
