  • The merge of three stories form the crux of the story.
  • Characters were one-dimensional and did not develop with the plot.
  • Saif Ali Khan’s performance was remarkable.

Kaalakaandi, a Saif Ali Khan starrer, is the directional debut of Delhi-Belly’s writer Akshat Verma. The movie is set in Mumbai revolving around people who do things which are right and wrong, following which they wonder if what they did was right.

This is not the movie you should watch if you are looking for quirky-laughter moments. The film aims at showcasing the ‘dark side’ of people.

However, the characters are totally one-dimensional and face no development as the story moves forward. Even though Saif’s performance has been remarkable, the screenplay is said to have been ‘half-baked’.

It is dark humour and particularly, a thriller. The films had three independent stories in the frame, which form the crux when they merge.

Bollywood actresses, including Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sara Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, want to push themselves beyond good looks, says celebrity trainer Namrata Purohit.

Purohit, who has a long list of celebrity clients like Kareena, Sara, Janhvi Kapoor, Sonakshi and Malaika Arora, said that actors have started looking at fitness holistically.

“All of them (actors) are extremely dedicated. All of them look at fitness as a whole. They want to be strong. They want to challenge themselves further,” Purohit told IANS via a recorded response.

“They don’t want to limit themselves that ‘I am looking good but that’s it’. They want to push themselves beyond that… And it is extremely aspirational to see how they push themselves, even after hectic work schedule… They still try to make it to work out (sessions) for a healthy life,” added the fitness expert, who associated with AXN’s property “Next Top Model” for the campaign ‘You Have it in You’.

Purohit feels the definition of fitness has changed over the years.

“People now look at fitness not just about the way you look but also about the way you feel… People now associate fitness with strength, balance and stability.

“Before, it was only about the way you look. Usually people would call someone who is skinny as fit. That has changed. People have understood skinny is skinny and fit is fit.”

Purohit believes fitness and good diet go hand-in-hand. “Both are extremely important to live a healthy life. Food and fitness are important for all aspects. Exercise releases toxins which makes you feel good,” she said. (IANS)
