“The Khans pretty much run the show in Bollywood. But when it comes to portraying Muslims on screen, Bollywood could not be more myopic. Most of such representation in the mainstream consciousness is marked by stereotypes that swing between royalty and the underworld.”
“At the heart Mulk is a fearless spirit that is a far cry from the abject timidity of Bollywood, an industry that believes in upholding the status quo even if it threatens to endanger the precious pluralistic ethos that lies at the foundation of this vast nation… It isn’t often that Bollywood shows such spine.”

“Contrary to its disclaimer, the characters represent their religions, where their lives are primarily lensed through pathos and victimhood. This approach, another form of the Madonna-Whore complex, is as reductive and harmful as one marked with prejudice, because to cast people in categories – to either just revere or deride them – is to deny them their humanity.”
