Kaalakaandi movie cast: Saif Ali Khan, Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Raaz, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Neil Bhoopalam, Shobhita Dhulipala, Isha Talwar, Nary Singh, Akshay Oberoi.

Saif Ali Khan’s recent last movie might have disappointed to put a great impact but he is back with one movie Kalakaandi. The movie is based on dark comedy which revolves around six individuals from Mumbai. The movie is directed by debutant Akshat Verma.

People have great hopes from Saif Ali Khan in Kaalakaandi. In the film, the character faces a sudden change in his life when finds that he is suffering from stomach cancer. In some twisted way, Saif Ali Khan ends up taking LSD paper one night and the main plot of the story starts.

After watching the trailer, people speculated that the movie might be similar to Delhi Belly. But this dark comedy is helmed by director Akshat Verma. But, if the script is mixed with good direction and brilliant actors, people enjoy the movie.

Apart from Saif Ali Khan, Kaalakaandi also stars actors like Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Raaz and Kunaal Roy Kapur.Kaalakaandi also has Neil Bhoopalam, Shobhita Dhulipala, Isha Talwar, Nary Singh and Akshay Oberoi.

Kaalakaandi has got an amazing plot. The synopsis of the film reads, Kaalakaandi is a dark comedy genre film which revolves around different stories in Mumbai where destiny intertwines every character’s life. Kaalakaandi (a Marathi slang term for when things go disastrously wrong) is a story all about life, death and karma. In the plot, Saif also decides to take acid paper after he comes to know that he is suffering from cancer.. No one in the industry has touched this genre called psychedelic in India and that in itself makes for an interesting assumption to build a story on for Akshat.

Kaalakaandi also portrays the relation between Mumbai and its dark underworld. In an interview earlier, Akshat said, “It’s just a nod to the underworld. The characters in my films are the ones on its fringes. They’re like the messenger boys. They have ambition, they are on the outside, but want to be up there. Any criminal enterprise also has an administrative aspect. No one joins a criminal enterprise wanting to be a clerk. But there are those who do that job and it doesn’t stop them from wanting to be the don. That’s the kind of underworld in my film.”
