Synopsis: Mulk is a voice of a Muslim Joint Family based in Varanasi, who fight to regain their honour and respect when one of their family members gets involved in the terrorist activities. The patriarch, Murad Ali Mohammed (Rishi Kapoor) is a reputed lawyer who has Hindu friends in the streets of Benaras.
But one incident changes the life of the family when Murad’s younger brother’s son, Shahid Mohammed (Prateik Babbar) is arrested and declared as a Terrorist and killed in an encounter by Anti–Terrorist Squad officer Danish Javed (Rajat Kapoor). Murad younger brother and Shahid’s father Bilal (Manoj Pahwa) is taken into the police on the charges of being involved in his son’s unlawful activities. Then Murad has no other option other than defending his brother in the court and prove that Bilal is innocent. But things got turned when prosecution lawyer (Ashutosh Rana) also dragged Murad into the case as an accused. Finally Murad’s Hindu daughter in law Aarti Mohammed (Taapsee Pannu) stands for her family and ask for justice.
- Taapsee’s impactful performance again creates the magic on the big screen.
- The picturization of the Second half, intense courtroom drama is holding the viewers’ attention.
- The direction is excellent with the touch of mohallas of Banaras.
Not so High Quotient:
- Prateik Babbar is not able to deliver his best performance.
