StoryLine And Review Of Mulk
Mulk is a story of a Muslim family’s struggle to prove their innocence as one of a member of their own family, Shahid Mohammed was proven guilty for a bomb blast that killed many innocent lives. The film is about religion and blind faith and a broken home. In the movie Mulk Murad and Aarti fight a lot to prove that Shahid’s father Bilaal Mohammed is not a terrorist like his son was. And they are up against the prosecution with Santosh Anand and Danish Javed. Rishi Kapoor’s performance makes you forget that he is not a Muslim in real-life and the pain is evident in him and his family at the same time Manoj is the show stealer in the movie. Gupta and Prachee Shah Pandya brilliantly convey the pain of a sad family who is confused as to feel sympathy or blind hatred for one of their own. The true hero of Mulk is Anubhav Sinha who had a point to prove, no strings attached.
The first half of the movie was the calm and gave us a glimpse at the innocence of Murad and his family before Shahid’s unforgiving dishonesty and in the second half of the movie is immerse by the impending court case in the name of religion, in the name of you vs us. Overall we can say it that Mulk is not about dance and songs and love and drama.
The main reason behind the making of the movie Mulk is a question in all of our minds – the difference between hum and woh! In a recent interview, Anubhav had said, “I can make a safe Dus, a safer Ra.One but not a safe Mulk.” After watching Mulk, we see why. So at the end Mulk is a worth to watch movie because somehow, we have all misunderstood the meaning of religion and reiterated it with jingoism.
