Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu’s Mulk received bad reviews on IMdb.

Actor Taapsee Pannu and Rishi Kapoor’s Mulk has received great critical response since its release on August 3. The film’s treatment when it comes to prejudice and preconceived notions about certain religions is being lauded. However, the film’s rating on IMDB has taken a blow. The film currently stands at 3.5 rating with 3,668 votes. Director Anubhav Sinha was not too happy about this and he took to Twitter to express his frustration.

The director tweeted, “The IMDB rating of #MULK is being attacked. You know what? I don’t give a Flying F***!!! MULK has received too much love to worry about that. There are more people who love the film. They will respond to you.”

The IMdb user rating for Taapsee Pannu, Rishi Kapoor starrer Mulk.

The maximum number of votes, which is 71.8%, rated the film 1/10. The harsh user reviews ranged from, “Too slow/boring movie, it’s like Ekta Kapoor’s TV serial, which runs and runs but doesn’t end,” to a more detailed, “Pretty clichéd movie. This tries really hard to be a hard hitting movie but simply isn’t effective enough. It’s really hard to see a great actor like Ashutosh Rana reduced to a caricature lawyer. Taapsee Pannu must have done multiple viewings of Pink to prepare for her role but doesn’t come close to Amitabh. Rishi Kapoor is okay. So are others. Pratik Babbar has grown chubby. Music is weak. Take my advice. Watch KK Menon and Rahul once again in Shuarya instead.”

Mulk is about the family of an accused terrorist, which has to live through public prejudice and gets alienated from its own ‘Mulk’. However, Rishi Kapoor, who plays the head of the family and Taapsee Pannu, who plays his daughter-in-law, fight it out in court to prove that they are as patriotic as any other citizen in the country and that their religion doesn’t define their emotions towards the nation.
