Malang takes you from one ‘thrill’ to another without taking much time – the movie is brilliantly paced and well-edited. The fast pace doesn’t miss anything important and manages to narrate an intriguing story. Orbiting around the lives of Advait (Aditya Roy Kapur) – a backpack tripper, Sara (Disha Patani), Michael (Kunal Kemmu) & Agashe (Anil Kapoor) who are two officers cross each other’s path in Goa.
The story is told in two timezones, one indicates the purpose of revenge & other designs the execution of it. We see Advait changing from a normal person escaping routine life finding himself in Goa to someone filled with a vengeance on a killing spree. The reason why he has become like this is the reason behind this intriguing story.
Mohit Suri has always been high on emotions and music, this time he takes it a notch higher with the thrilling factor. While getting to a point of purpose, he takes too many cinematic liberties. He merges his direction with sound-design very smoothly leaving a solid impact on the viewer.
Aditya Roy Kapur levels up as far as his acting is concerned. He is great when it comes to emotional scenes, His robust physique adds to the role. Disha Patani gets the scope to act & she does it pretty well. 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. Kunal Kemmu 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 her character and never outdoes it.
Finally a great Thriller, not as great as Ek Villian but a good watch!
