Based on a real-life story, Mulk revolves around the struggles of a Muslim joint family from a small town in India, who fight to reclaim their honour after a member of their family takes to terrorism.
Acting performances from Ashutosh Rana and Rishi Kapoor are fantastic. But yet a younger actor who steals all their thunder with ease is Tapsee Pannu. Her character portrayal is sensational.The movies story deals with the prejudice the Muslim community faces due to terrorist activities done by some bad elements.It deals with how a whole family is treated as criminal suspect not just by police and judiciary but also by society due to the stupidity of one young man who becomes a terrorist by individuals who target young impressionable minds. It also has a lesson for Muslims that the elders see to it and keep observing their children from being carried away and brainwashed by fringe elements who recruit terrorists.The movie has perfect direction, superb editing, flawless and hard hitting dialogues, excellent actors.
Don’t Watch this movie if you are a hindu or a Muslim. Don’t watch it if you are Right wing Hindu nationalist or a Muslim fanatic. Watch it if you have the guts to be a secular Indian.
