As Varun Dhawan turns 24 this week, he’s staring at the biggest flop of his career so far — Kalank. But the truth is, Varun was the weakest link in Kalank. His 6-pack torso, didn’t quite fit into the 1940s era and neither did the absurd song sequences like First Class where the dance steps were most incongruous.
Varun’s dialogue delivery also left much to be desired. In fact Varun’s character’s packaging was all wrong. So he cannot completely be blamed for his failed performance.
However, he’s done with experimental characters for now. Both Shoojit Sircar’s October where Varun poured his heart and soul to play the adamant lover-boy who insists that the girl in coma is in love with him, and Kalank where the adamant lover insists that the married woman whom he woos will love him in and out of bed, have failed to generate interest. Varun Dhawan is back to doing full masala films. He is full of sound and dance in Remo d’Souza’s Street Dancer before he leaps into Govinda’s territory with his father David Dhawan in Coolie No 1.
