Launching the teaser of the big-budget film 'Kalank' on March 12, Karan Johar said that this film was his father's dream and he is happy to finally make it. While the teaser has only crossed 4 million views in last 7 hours, Netizens can't help but compare the background score of 'Kalank' to an American television series. And no, it is not 'Game of Thrones', believe it or not, it is 'The Flash', as per netizens.
Featuring Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit, and Sanjay Dutt in the lead, the film seems to be dealing with the conflict of love. While the overall vibe of the teaser looks like a leaf taken from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's book, the music too has a stark similarity with 'The Flash's' theme song. Listen it for yourself and decide.
Here's the video -
The netizens aren't very pleased with this. One user wrote: "Plagiarism at his best. They almost steal flash background music and recreated a new version with some modifications. Bollywood seriously lacks originality." While others couldn't help but compare the background score with 'Game of Thrones'. One user wrote: "Is it just me I dont know but the music of Kalank looks to be copied from Light of Seven of Game of Thrones. I find it very same."
The music of the film is directed by Pritam while the original background music is by Sanchit Balhara and Ankita Balhara.
The period drama set in the 1940s will be helmed by '2 States' director Abhishek Verman and will be jointly produced by Karan Johar, Sajid Nadiadwala, and Fox Star Studios. It is all set to hit the theatres on April 19, 2019.
