How does one prove that one loves one’s country? And should this love be questioned in the first place? Who are the actual citizens of this country, really? Mulk asks such questions and more. Rishi Kapoor plays a lawyer whose nephew and brother are accused of being terrorists and he himself gets accused of aiding and abetting them. He’s in his element as the lawyer who thinks the law is on his side and is bewildered and saddened by the changing attitudes and scenarios. He serves as the moral compass of the film, refusing to give in to voices who preach hate and division. His pain is real and so is the certitude that truth will triumph in the end.
