Mulk Movie Review; Taapsee Pannu, Rishi Kapoor Starrer Targets Delicate Social Issue

Mulk, an Anubhav Sinha direction, is among the latest releases of Bollywood and here’s our review on the Rishi Kapoor starrer.

Mulk Movie Review; Taapsee Pannu, Rishi Kapoor Starrer Targets Delicate Social Issue

The newly released movie Mulk features the gorgeous and multi-talented actress Taapsee Pannu, who made a mark with her strong performances in movies like Pink and Naam Shabana.

Also, the film stars Bollywood bigwig Rishi Kapoor, who is known for his strong performances in the film industry.

In the film, Rishi Kapoor portrays a Muslim person named Murad Ali Mohammad, who struggles hard for his family’s self-esteem and dignity throughout the movie.

Meanwhile Taapsee Pannu acts as a strong Aarti Malhotra, who being Murad’s daughter-in-law, fights for justice in the court. Furthermore, the film includes Rajat Kapoor, an official who works for the anti-terrorism authorities.

Mulk movie touches a delicate social issue as it confronts Islamophobia by contending against the widespread chauvinism. It deals with the prevalent hate propaganda very well, backed with evidence and feelings.

The film is definitely true to its perspective. It justifies local people as it portrays police stations, justice courts and streets of a small town named Uttar Pardesh.

Despite all the powerful performances of great figures, the film fails on one key aspect of storytelling technique and that is ‘surprise’.

In this two and a half hour picture, you nearly know what’s coming next as there is not much of a surprise and wow factor in it.

This theatrical picture contains nothing that will take the wind out of the audiences and daze them. Each and every situation appears as if it was finagled to state things precisely.

The ‘natural’ element was somewhat missing in major part of the movie. Scenes like a Hindu individual attending a Muslim ceremony and avoiding meat dishes were supposed to be comical, but instead felt too cooked up.

The film does well on the point of objectiveness and on the contrary, it falls short on the matter of storytelling.
