Malang Movie Review: Aditya Roy Kapur & Disha Patani Take You From One ‘Thrill’ To Another

What’s Good: Despite the beautiful looking locales of Goa, a bewitching Disha & ‘a perfect 10’, it’s the story that holds your attention

What’s Bad: Script’s accessibility to attain certain things makes some sequences predictable & a whole lot of spoilers are already out in the trailer

Loo Break: Only if you can get your eyes off either from Aditya or Disha

Watch or Not?: Even if you’re going for Disha’s hotness, just go because there’s much more to it

User Rating:

Revolving around the life of four pretty-much grey characters, the story involves a whole lot of revenge burdened with innumerable unintentionally funny ‘drug warnings’. Advait (Aditya Roy Kapur) – a bagpack tripper, Sara (Disha Patani) – in search of her Ikigai away from the Tigers, Michael (Kunal Kemmu) & Agashe (Anil Kapoor) – two shady officers cross each other’s path in Goa.

The story takes place in two timelines, one indicates the purpose of revenge & other designs the execution. We see Advait from a normal person escaping the routine life finding himself in Goa to someone filled with a vengeance on a killing spree. Now, what’s the purpose behind the same is what the story is all about.

Malang Movie Review: Script Analysis

This is by far Mohit Suri’s darkest attempt at establishing emotions laced with just the proper amount of thrills. Explaining it in two different timelines, it does a comforting job to register what’s what. Script speeds up things which majorly works in the favour of the film. Aseem Arora’s script maintains dual-shade characters for almost every actor & it is backed by exuberant performances.

My complaint with the script was its convenience. A lot of things happening look easy to believe & that weakens the bond you build with the characters. There are good twists but the convenience fades impact at some places. Also, Mohit had the first chance to show a ‘proper’ drug-trip (Rajkumar Hirani tried a mushy version of it in Sanju) but he fails to do so. There’s not a single time when he just takes you in Disha or Aditya’s head to feel the trip.

Malang Movie Review: Star Performance

Aditya Roy Kapur is intoxicating and not in a bad way. He just levels up as far as his acting is concerned and also from alcohol to drugs. I’ve always trusted him when it comes to emotional scenes, but in this one, he just strengthens my trust when it comes to being a badass. His robust physique is not the only thing showcasing the efforts he has put in the film. From subtle stubble to thick-beard, Aditya’s face is a perfect fit for the various beard-styles catalogue.

Disha Patani gets out of the shell and how? She has already got the looks working for her but this one’s special. She gets the scope to act & she does it pretty well. Still, a long way to go but she had to start somewhere.

It’s been years of seeing Anil Kapoor acting and if you think he’s exhausted with the kind of roles he’s choosing, you need to see this one. A druggie police officer who knows no rule – you can’t take anyone but Anil. He justifies the character apart from a few traits which make him ham.

Kunal Kemmu, the lost gem of Bollywood, fulfils mine appetite of wanting him back on screen. He gradually peels off the layers of his character, while exhibiting the depth he has got in his acting. Elli Avrram gets a character that is beautifully designed for her. Apart from her hippie looks, she understands the tonality of her character and never outdoes it.

Malang Box Office Review: Expectations
Malang has been catering eyeballs ever since its announcement for the interesting star cast it brings together.
Though Aditya Roy Kapur is having a rough time at the Box Office since past many years and his films starting from Daawat-E-Ishq to Kalank have been disappointments, he enjoys a good fan following. With a film like Malang in which he has been well presented, he can really hope for the comeback he deserves.
Disha Patani has previously starred in some of the big hits like M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story, Baaghi 2 and Salman Khan starrer 200 crores grosser Bharat. Even though her box office contribution to these films was not huge she added a certain face value. The audience loved her in these films and that certainly adds value to Malang as well.
Anil Kapoor’s Box Office graph lately has seen quite some ups and downs. While his films like Welcome Back, Mubarkan, Total Dhamaal were successful, he faced disappointments with Race 3, Fanney Khan, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga & Pagalpanti. In Malang his character looks interesting and since he’s a star of experience and huge talent who still enjoys good admiration among the audience, one expects him to add a little star value to the film.
Mohit Suri’s films have also struggled in the recent past. After Aashiqui 2 & Ek Villain he hit the rough patch and gave a dud like Hamari Adhuri Kahani. Even much talked about Half Girlfriend was not a clean hit. But now as he returns with his Aashiqui 2 star Aditya and has a interesting film in kitty, one expects him to hit the bull’s eye.
The promos of Malang have been liked by the audience. Aditya and Disha’s looks and their chemistry have created a charm which will surely attract the youth in big cities. The action thriller angle is another plus. Also the music has fared decently which will make sure the film doesn’t go unnoticed on Day 1.

Malang Box Office Review: Impact
If you liked the trailer of Malang, you are going to like the film even more. The screenplay of the film has been written in a way that it keeps you curious throughout. The questions like Why Aditya Roy Kapur’s character is on a killing spree keeps you hooked and the second track which shows the backstory of Aditya and Disha’s characters add to the intrigue. Although you may find the soul missing and the characters of Aditya and Disha uninspiring in the first half but wait for the film post interval. It’s only after intermission that the dots start connecting and also the emotional connect starts building up. And as the film moves towards its finale, it keeps on offering something or another to keep you gripped and entertained. And then the finale is just so good. It won’t let you leave without loving it. The best part is that after watching a heavy on viol*nce and substance film like this, the end will bring a big smile on your face.
The film is rich performances wise as well. From Aditya Roy Kapoor to Elli AvrRam, everyone has played their part well. Though Anil Kapoor and Kunal Kemmu shine. Mohit Suri has given very good direction. Cinematography is excellent and background score is edgy.
Malang Box Office Review: Final Verdict
Overall, Malang will work well for the audience it targets though that section is pretty limited. The film may not take a good enough start but it will sustain well. The pre-Valentine week can boost the business of a film like this. However, there are back to back releases in upcoming weeks.
Malang can collect to the best of its potential till Love Aaj Kal releases next Friday. The upcoming romantic film also caters youth and definitely a larger section. The audience will get heavily divided and same thing will happen again on Feb 21 when Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan will release.
Malang is expected to do a lifetime business somewhere in 40-50 crores range. It could’ve done better though if the release period was better.

Aditya Roy Kapur enjoys a huge fan following among girls and going by his look in Malang this following is going to increase manifolds. He looks hot and girls are going to have a tough time stopping themselves drooling over him. His character also looks interesting and we just hope Mohit Suri has brought the best out of him.

Disha Patani looks happening and will set the hearts of her male fans racing fast. Her chemistry with Aditya is going to be a highlight of the film. Anil Kapoor is young as always and promises an exciting performance. If the trailer is anything to go by, the audience is surely in for a treat. Kunal Kemmu hasn’t been shown much and we’ll wait to see what he has to offer in the film.

Overall, Mohit Suri and team promise a stunning entertainer with Malang trailer and it’s surely going to attract many eyeballs. The film has exactly 1 week for promotions from here and if it gets the support of good music then nothing can stop this one from taking a stylish start at the Box Office. Considering it’s a Mohit Suri film, we can’t expect the music to not create an impression. It looks like a winner.

Rating: 3.5/5
